So... after all these upgrades im finally ready to run for a while. Seems like aluminum shock towers may be on the docket.. Why not?
Ran my first pack tonight. 5000mah 3s 20c lipo. I cant begin to tell you how great this truck ran tonight... it was MUCh quieter than my first trial. I think the motor was not mounted as tight as it needed to be.
I clocked it at 57mph with GPS on a couple speed runs. Its so much more stable on the dirt and rocks with the new tires and sway bars. I hit a couple of curbs pretty hard at least 45mph and nothing. I cart-wheeled one time about 15 turns, No issues.
This thing is a beast.
Want to thank ALL of you guys on here that have helped me. 1 month ago i had NO idea what I was doing. none at all. new to the hobby... Things change quick after a project like this.
The tenshock motor , whoa... I havent run a MM2 or any castle stuff, but i cant imagine anything better than this thing.
Thanks again everyone
