    Here's a semi-decent description of that metal, plus they have some to buy. Sounds like it's just flint though.

    magnesium is very delicate to machine on if it gets to hot it will ignite and dont throw water on it it will explode so to speak it burns somewhere around 3000 degrees and its pure white when it burns, we have worked with it at the shop before, so if you try it use extreme caution it can be very dangerous...thats my .02

    I ordered the rest of my stainless steel hex hardware today from Fastenal, it'll be in Wednesday. My TBone rear bumper came in the mail today, and my servo extension and battery should be here on Friday so some updates will be coming in shortly. Thanks for watching guys. I've got a few more ideas rolling around in my head too.

    You know I would check, but I'm not at home at the moment. I will get some measurements tomorrow night for ya. I know it's the same width as the tub, just not sure on the length.

    The long part is 5 1/8 inches long by 2 3/4 wide, and the shorter piece that gets screwed down to the chassis is 1 inch long by the same width.

    Have not seen it but sure sounds cool. They just came out with a kids toy that does it, I think it's a Razor scooter or something like it. Maybe see how they did it.

    I've been a mechanic at a factory for the past 15 years, but I have a degree in Machining/CNC. Kind of a waste of a degree, but I make decent enough money not to care.

    Update:

    I got my SPC 65c 6500mah battery today that I ordered on Sunday (fast shipping!) so I converted it over to the flip top:



    I turned down an old standoff I saved from a burned out pcb from work into my hold-downs. I reused part of the stock one as a washer and a couple of 3mm lock nuts:







    Added some weather stripping to the battery to keep it snug. It fits perfectly in the Stampede's chassis:



    The servo wire will be hidden once my extension gets here Friday. It should make it look pretty slick:



    Overall, I'm real happy with the way it turned out. What say you?



    Oh, and by the way, I just got 30-40 minutes of action out of this battery! (kinda hard to tell how long because I let the motor cool a couple times).

    I haven't heard of anyone who has done the sparking wheelie bar, but you should try it. It would be really cool if it worked good.

    Hey Ramsey ,
    I am just wondering how do you like its handling whne the bbat and esc are at that hight.
    I started building mine at the same configuration to move the centre of gravity and have a weighted average between the fron and back so that it woud not pop too much of a wheelie....
    Anyway I found a bit high fo rmy liking , because I thought once on very rough bashing; I may actually dammage the ESC and receiver box if I dont have a roller cage. (just a thought), maybe I should test it out though.

    You will love the power of brushless, I am also on 2 s batts and man it flies....awsome at skate park...very high jumps

    Jezza, I can tell you in this configuration with my Titan it's harder to pop wheelies, and it flies much better off of jumps. That little bit of weight moved forward made a noticeable difference in handling.

    I am running brushless, so thats why I was figuring it out...how will it handle.

    Everything is hooked up and working. Just in time to remove everything to install my Castle setup. The only thing that sucks is that my male traxxas lead for the ESC won't be here until Tuesday. Bleh.

    Finally done. Except for power switch. I need to come up with some way to mount it other than double sided tape.

    LiPo doesn't get hot. At least this one hasn't.

    The Sidewinder 3 and 4600kv combo, with an SPC 6500mah 65c LiPo pack to go with it.

    Eliminate the switch. Castle support will recommend it if you call them. Cut the switch wires to 3/4", strip1/8" off and solder them, then add shrink wrap to finish. Your battery connector is now your on/off switch. There is no need to leave your battery plugged in if your not running it anyway.


    That is a killer job. Looks "factory".

    With all the power you have added, you may want to eventually do a wide mod for more stability.
