    I think I want an entirely separate crawling system so I guess brushed is the way to go. The MMM can handle brushed motors right?

    all good here is a few more, IDK all them either................hahahhaaaa

    Terms:


    BEC: Battery Eliminator Circuit

    UBEC: Ultimate (or universal) Battery Eliminator Circuit

    ESC: Electronic Speed Control

    BL: Brushless

    COG or CG: Center of Gravity. "Cog" could also mean motor cogging, but the letters are not usually all capitalized.

    CD: Center Differential

    MM: Mamba Max

    MMM: Mamba Monster (Max)

    MMP or MMPro: Mamba Max Pro

    RPM: Revolutions per Minute or the RPM company

    KV: RPM per volt motor constant

    Y or Wye or Asterisk or Star: A brushless motor coil configuration. Looks like the letter Y.

    D or Delta or Triangle: A brushless motor coil configuration. Looks like a triangle.

    CC/CV: Refers to the Constant Current/Constant Voltage threshold for lipo charging.

    CC: Castle Creations company.

    LMT: Lehner Motoren Technik brand of brushless motor, commonly shortened to simply Lehner.

    S, L, XL: Refers to the motor can length when talking about Feigao/Wanderer/Nemesis brushless motors.

    S&T: Sky and Technology company - makes the Quark ESCs.

    MGM: ESC brand.

    AC: Alternating Current

    DC: Direct Current

    PWM: Pulse Width Modulation. Refers to the method ESCs use to send partial power to a motor. Highly efficient. Can also refer to the signal from a radio receiver to servos/speed controllers.

    Rx: Receiver.

    Tx: Transmitter.

    RCM: RC Monster. Can refer to the main site, the forum site, or "the man" Mike.

    LVC: Low Voltage Cut-off device to protect the lipo cells from being discharged bellow 3V per cell

    HV: High Voltage

    FET: Field-Effect Transistor. High current devices used in speed controllers that channel battery current to the motor.

    MOSFET: Metal-Oxide Semiconductor Field-Effect Transistor. Other less common versions: Metal-Oxide Silicon Field-Effect Transistor, and Metal-Oxide Substrate Field-Effect Transistor.

    NiMH: Nickel Metal Hydride Battery

    NiCD: Nickel Cadmium Battery

    Lipo: Lithium Polymer Battery

    Cap: Actually not an acronym, but an abbreviation for capacitor.

    A: Amps. Electrical term for current.

    V: Volts. Electrical term for voltage.

    W: Watts. Electrical term for wattage or power. 1 horsepower = 745.7 watts.

    mAh: milliamp-hours. Battery capacity rating. How many milliamps a battery can deliver for one hour. There are 1,000 milliamps (mA) in one amp. So 1000mAh is the same as 1Ah.

    WOT: Wide Open Throttle


    Forum "shorthand" acronyms:


    IIRC: If I Remember Correctly

    ATM: At The Moment

    IMO: In My Opinion

    IMHO: In My Honest (or Humble) Opinion

    So from all of this I have come up with:

    -Long travel rockers
    -Spring loaded wheelie bar
    -Lipos
    -4 channel radio with the docking base
    -2 speed transmission
    -Telemetry censors
    -Plasti dip the servos
    -Water proof the MMM
    -TVR/Summit drive shafts
    -T lock diffs (maybe I can find/make a metal locker)
    -Chassis brace
    -Tape the tires
    -Extended summit rear A arms (do they fit all around without looking funny?)
    -A motor mount mod
    -A brushed motor for crawling
    -Summit bulkheads
    -The XO-1 1717 motor
    -The Mamba XL (can it run brushed?)
    -An aluminum slipper clutch


    These things aren't in any order yet so please give some input.

    Just curios if it would make a difference to remotely operate the wing. I probably wont do it (not enough channels) unless I can find a way to link the position of the wing to the speed of the car.

    As I replace bearings should I upgrade to ceramic or stick with the stock ones.

    Any recommendations are appreciated. Thanks.

    Just thought of this, what if I used a gyro on the wing to control it so when the back end goes down the wing compensates to bring it up again and vise versa or would I still need another channel to plug it all into?

    Really what I should be asking is if its necessary?

    Thanks.

    So I just went to the ERBE page (for some unknown reason) and I noticed a price change, does anyone know why?

    http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread...des-for-racing
    In post two it says something about variable damping pistons, can someone give me some more information? Also in post four I think those chassis are pretty cool but would they be week or let a lot of dirt in? If not than I think it might be on the list.

    Thanks.

    Here mate...read post #32. I have a pic in that post so you can see what it looks like. It comes with a valve flap that you can instal on the top or bottom depending what you want from your truck. Mine is on the bottom for bashing .
    Rock n Rolla !

    No more comments or ideas on the price change, chassis or wing?
