I have a Brushless MERV and want to do some upgrades after an incident with a sewer cover . It did perform some spectacular aerial maneuvers after it pole vaulted off it however. I'm not looking for high speed runs(thatís what I say now at least), more for a platform that is prone to take bashing. I also previously ran into Thermal shutdown (stock gearing), after reading I wonder partially if because some grass driving, or damaged to bulkhead prior to the sewer cover (This is the second time Iíve killed a bulkhead). So far from reading these are the things I have looked at and believe to be suitable to my goals.
T-Bone full chassis brace, front/read bumper. (Wheelie bar?)
Dirt Hawgs on Titus Prolines
380 Motor Heat Sink
Much More Racing Ultra high rpm fan.
RPM F/R Upper/Lower arms
GPM F/R Oil shocks
GPM alloy Tie Rod Set
GH Aluminum Carrier
Velcro body mounting
With a T-bone would I still need to consider aluminum bulkheads?
When should I transition to Lipos and what are some suggested ones to look into? ( I have a capable charger and would have already transitioned if it werenít for the heat issues).
I do plan to upgrade to a Nue 1110 1/y with MMP, what other things would you suggest before this transition (Lipos already known, and will get a servo upgrade as well.)
I appreciate your input on this.
