That's right... I am getting my Spartan ready to use in the South Texas winter(not much but it's artic temps to me). I ordered the following from a certain $ Hobbies:
Receiver box (stock)
Traxxas 2933 (new 6-AMP charger)
4 11.1v 5000mah Lipo’s
TQi radio system (stock for newer models)
New screws/tool set (stock)
And then decided I would share some small wealth with OSE:
All came out to $415......... yep, blew through it...
What should I be doing once I get it in the water again? Jimmie says there is no need for "breaking in LiPo's(I would think there is). Grease after EVERY RUN regardless! I cannot tear the motor apart for cleaning because the previous owner stripped the screws... I have Gen2 Spartan for those who don't know me. I figured hatch tape can help when I decide to start pushing against the wind. Bilge pump> That's right, I either will use it for clearing out the lines after runs or mount it on the roof hatch(inside) so it can stay afloat longer while capsized... Reason for new cooling lines is because mine are getting weak and they are too small of flow(currently have OSE 7/32 lines with dual P-U rudder). I will have to keep a notepad around for which batteries are used on which side(personal preference)
Any help is GREATLY appreciated!
