I'm sure this question could apply to any RC Car, but this is for one of my Stampedes running a Castle Mamba Monster 2 with a 2650kv Castle motor.
On 4s with an 18/54 gear setup, this thing is geared to hit a top speed of 85mph or 136kmh (for my fellow Aussies out there). This is according to the Tqi telemetry which I have installed on the car. I cannot keep the four wheels on the ground once I hit 60mph so I need to play with the setup to see what real road speed I can hit with this bad boy.
I have loosened the slipper to 1.25 turns from tight to try and reduce the wheelies and softened the suspension quite a bit. This is an 8.8pound Pede so it does droop on the softer springs.
My question to the forums is what is the best way to get all this power to the ground so I can hit top speed in a straight line? I'd love to be able to get close to the 85mph mark or even somewhere between 70-75mph which the car could hit if I could keep it from launching backward.
Any suggestions would be appreciated.
