    8s was so last year... hello 12s

    12s up and running. Will post more info once the bugs are all worked out. Initial test runs of 132mph with 3/4 throttle under 900ft using stock tires and 3 bushnell radar guns & garmin GPS. We are still working on the custom body and awaiting wind tunnel results. It helps out to have engineer friends from back in college that work for Boeing.

    Knowing Anthony, I'm gonna guess 1:1 gearing with either a kershaw or MGM esc. I'm leaning towards the kershaw.

    Yawn, I was running 12s 2 years ago in a Sl4sh. How many watts can your esc handle @ 50vdc?
    Stop busting my canards!

    I wish we could see more of the nitty-gritty details behind what AnthonyV is planning or doing. This is a very cool engineering project!

    I could care less about the details other than I want one of the bodies he is making and I want to see him hit 170 mph

    hmmm. batteries looking pretty big so the motor must be real short for them twin 6S. since you're into helis too you'e probably running a heli outrunner brushless motor?

    How about a thread?

    I hope he don't puff one of those 2500 cells in the middle of a 6 pack. I used 4 3s packs to reduce the cost of replacing a damaged cell.

    Good Luck AV

    Interesting thread, but one pic of a smoked slipper and another pic of a Slash 4x4 with a Castle ESC isn't really showing anything. You have to have some vids somewhere.

    I know it's weak evidence Ponie1992(good call)but that's about it. I kept the details out to deter copycats.

    So where are the videos and pictures?

    What is the point exactly in posting a picture with some 12s batteries and everything else hidden?

    I can barely handle 3s haha! It's so crazy on my car! I can't even think about handling 6s, let alone 12s! I think I'd keep it as a shelf queen so I don't destroy it! aha

    Nice guess... but wrong as usual bobbie. I think you are confusing C rating for mah capacity (which you're wrong on the 2500 guess as well). Sweet 12s slash by the way. Did a 12 year old build it? MilesLong is the new owner of the 12s set-up so you may want to direct questions towards him. On his behalf, he did want me to post these up:



    Slightly larger pack than the original pack shown. Again, I hardly ever get on here so direct all questions over to MilesLong. Long story short, the 12s smokes my 8s.

    Ahh, now I get it

    The purpose of this thread is to prove other people's assumptions made on meaningless pictures wrong.

    The one in the MP is a 8s car. This one appears to be a different one.

    my car is not the same as the one up in MP that anthonyv is selling. mine is 12s and his is 8s. we have successfully gotten this up to 165mph. at this point the cars aerodynamics are limiting everything. the custom body is in development thanks to a few engineering freinds of anthonyvs. im not trying to set any records wit this car just have fun with it. this is why you dont really see me posting up much about it. it seems like setups like this attract too much negative atention on the internet.
