    1/18 toro brushless 5050kv on 3s

    Holy shizballz!!!!!!! This thing is incredible. So much power it's silly, literally blew the stock tires off. For $35 bucks and an $18 lipo it's almost to good to be true. I basically copied off of the other toro build by syrics and I am so glad, thing blew out the rear diff going at least 30mph. It definitely needs a wheelie bar.

    Crazy!!!



    I'll try to get a video later tomorrow.

    NICE!!!! just waiting for my 15Tooth pinion to arrive and try that first with the 2s lipo and see how speeds are. Without the aluminum shafts im still a lil scared to slap a 3s and bigger pinion in this thing and risk breaking more parts.

    But who knows..I'm sure i'll be ordering that 3s SOON

    Yes!!! cant wait! this thing is fun for sure. I'm definitely waiting on the next installment coming from the LaTrax series.

    I got my money on a 1/18th buggy, like a bandit. LaTrax PLEASE add $50 more onto the retail price and make it brushless for $200 and i'll be first in line

    You da man for coming up with this combo, I love it! You new toy looks fun.

    I adjusted the punch control to "low" 3 beeps and also adjusted the braking power so now I can do front and back flips😀.

    Rustler, I put in my 2s 2200 lipo and it is just as insane so as soon as you replace you diff you will be amazed.

    I haven't been able to get to full throttle yet.

    Definitely not putting this in my 4 yr olds truck! Haha

    This heat sink and fan is a nice setup that plugs into the receiver ch0. Fits my toro and stock motor with a little widening of the heat sink.

    Have to cut the truck body(not chassis) a tad but no big deal.

    Sweet build! Im gonna order the toro system for another Teton I just bought. What reason for the fan? Motor getting a little to warm?

    Thanks y'all

    I originally bought it for the brushed setup but put it on the toro to help with the long run times. I ordered another one for my sons losi motor in his truck.

    3s is crazy, I went thru 3 drive shafts tonight lol. I even adjusted the punch control but it's still easy to pull mid throttle wheelies. So much fun...

    Hobbypartz, I I have one on back order from them too and it says 3-4 weeks in their email they sent me. For the price, I couldn't resist having a backup. 😬

    Red truck would look good with a red toro though. 😀

    A good alternat to mamba brushless or the toro is the tacon.

    The tacon is going in the dromida, but pictured next to my mamba for size comparison

    It looks larger but I hope that equates to more torque.

    Some unfortunate news from hobbypartz today. I called them to find out about a backup toro system that I ordered in the beginning of the month and they said they aren't sure if they'll get them back in stock. They said management can't get any firm dates from the manufacturer. Refunding my money for my system on back order. I knew it was too good to be true.

    I'll still keep my eye on the stock levels for the future.

    If anyone has one on back order you might want to call them.

    Such an awesome system, shame we can't get our hands on it.

    I tested the tacon 4pole 3800 motor that has fins on the can as pictured. Even my mamba micro 4100kv got hot in the dromida due to the friction in the drive train. I can say that I am very happy with this tacon motor! it was pretty cheap but u have to get a ESC, I have a generic China ESC.
