    I'm running 6s 30c with it. It is so powerful. You defiantly want to put a throttle curve into play to protect the drive train. I just turn around in a little dirt and gunned it to my limit of 60% throttle and it shredded a rear tire. I did some speed runs but I am unsure of the speed. It was incredibly fast using a 20t pinion and 65t spur gear. I liked it.

    Nice photo of you and the kids. Im anxiously awaiting the photos of the kershaw chassis fully assembled.

    Gotta love super 33! 1001 uses! Back in the days when I ran an electrical contracting business one of my pet peeves was balling people out for using it to pull wire. I bought the 99 cents a roll stuff for that. The 33 is too expensive to use for pulling wire. Ive always got multiple rolls around in 8 colors, being a sparky Im sure you can guess which colors!

    That's good news that it held together I found it nessary to use a throttle cure to prevent spin out on take off to protect the stock diffs. And take it slow and fit test both bulkheads to the lst2 often while turning them down. This is going to be a lot of fun to build. Cause this car will weight almost a half pound less at the end of this build.

    Yes Justin I know the colors. All I'm waiting on now are my TiNi gears. Got a great price on them but the fella used snail mail to send them. Est. Delivery of Jan 7. I'm a bit upset about that cause I payed $7 for shipping hoping for a 3 day delivery. And I will be leaving him a bad score for shipping on eBay. looks like he pocketed my shipping money.

    I use the throttle curve ! Had plenty of practice from speed runs with my two mervs
    Did 5 cell runs today up to 53mph but it would wheelie when I got more into the throttle
    I will take my time grinding!
    My tin gears came the other day. Some ebay sellers love making money on shipping
    Can't go by eBay's shipping time get the tracking number and go to usps.com

    I got nabbed recently myself on paying for expedited shipping and getting snail mail along with crappy communications when I demanded a refund on the expedited shipping that I didnt get (shipping or the refund). The feedback reflected such then the guy contacts me and has a hissy fit because I didnt leave all 5 stars. I told him I was actually being nice giving what I did. Have to watch the shipping prices when you bid as often the cost of shipping is more than the items is worth.

    Off subject on this post. I am going to use a set of 7.5" tall hot bodies wheels and tires on the wifes revo. This car will be using a titan 775 motor for now. And I May upgrade to a dual motor setup from Kershaw at a later date. What I need is recommendations for gear ratios. this car has a 68t spur gear and a 22t pinion gear at the moment. I am pretty sure that will be to high for these tires. Looking for feed back on this.

    Might be a little tall. Punch your info in the speed calculator and play with the gearing http://scriptasylum.com/rc_speed/car_setup.html

    I am now running the 1/5 Trenchers & 17/65... 2/2s Lipos..
    22/68 should be a pretty good start. around 30 mph.....
    I reccomend breaking in the 775 or do the Dewalt mod........

    I used the kershaw dual 700s before on an emaxx it was a lot of motor for that truck, if only I would have had lipos it would have been pretty insane with the two speed. It ran really well for the price, at that time brushless was outrageous $$!

    Well I'm tearing down my lst2 diffentials an discovered that the differential cups are bad. So i am ordering the LOSB3528 as a replacement. I needed it anyways. These are much heavier cups with steal holders for the spiders.

    Well 50togo had a better idea. About the differential cup upgrade. Bought these instead. And I think Justin may have mentioned these in a previous post.

    Here is a picture of what the stub axles will look like when you trim the threaded end off. As you can see it sticks out the top of the gear. You need to trim them to be flush with the gear face. somewhere around 22.25mm in length.

    This is all you needed. Hot racing aluminum is a little bit better than plastic but never as tough as those steel blocks.

    It's been fun. See ya.

    Yes Mistercrash that is all I would have needed. I was about to buy those when I saw the aluminum cups mentioned by 50togo. I think the bling got me.

    I ordered the Savox SA-1230SG at 6.0v it puts out 500oz of torque to steer this beast. My Leopard Ground 150amp ESC puts out 5.7v at 3amps so this should work nicely without the use of a BEC. Im guessing 470+ oz of Torque. also purchased the steering arm from Teamstrc.com part# STP6037s. And I had to search far and wide to find some one who had this Pro Servo Horn-Single Arm Futaba,Savox hard anodized black part#RCE10380HA in stock.

    Just when i think I have everything I find something else i need. But yes running out of stuff to buy. Just remember you have been at this for a while I only bough my first traxxas in November. And now I have 4 of them. Well I will have a partial roller when this build is done. So ill have 4-1/2 traxxas trucks. And I will most likely rebuild the roller left over.
    I bought a two speed revo transmission to see what the differences are. I may use it in this build.

    i've been following this thread sense it started, still can't wait for the final out come... when you run out of things to buy, and you have played arround with that motor combo, pick up a 1717 neu motor (the same motor used in the xo-1), you will have a blast

    Well found some 3.2" badlands at my lhs for $15 a set turns out they fit the 3.8" wheels very well. So i had purchased some cheap wheels from ebay a few weeks ago and I'm going to try them on. So I have another great use for 3m electrical tape. Don't tell justin he would have a cow wasting 3m tape like this. LoL. I also used some of the rubber bands they sell for mounting tires. I think the tape works better. Because the tape exerts way more pressure to the tire bead than a rubber band. And I feel I am almost done buying the parts for this build. Only thing im waiting on is a front dog bone from Kershaw Designs and a stock bearing kit from eBay and of course the New servo and associated parts. As for the xo-1 motor that thing is insanely large and strong. I may do the Kershaw Designs extended E-revo chassis build next that might handle that motor better.

    Say it isnt so!
    If your BEC is only good for 3 amps you better order up an external BEC. Savox servos are the loudest most power hungry servos on the market. I have two builds going, on road and off road.

    On Road has this servo
    http://www.jrradios.com/Products/Def...D=JRPSZ9100HVT

    Off road with 40 series big joes has a pair of these
    http://www.jrradios.com/Products/Def...dID=JRPSZ9100T

    Savox servos are cheaper and for a reason. I tried two different brand new ones and got the same result. Loud,power hungry, blacking out a MMM unless you install a 10amp external BEC and wouldnt center.
