The reason for the delay in release of the Titan, now known as Spartan is due to a legal challenge against the name Titan which is the name of a model boat already in production by another well...
That's not rock crawling. That's boulder crawling! :lol:
Has the new boat got an official name yet?
I hope Traxxas is going to put a LINK radio system in it. :rolleyes:
Making it 6S capable and then including two NiMh packs is a waste of the consumers money. Ditch the batteries and let us use...
That is nice, very nice.
Hi guys, thanks for your comments!
Re: the springs, I cranked up the pre-load on the rear just enough to keep the trailer level while towing. The rear of the Summit is low, but that is OK with me....
Look at my earlier thread guys, I think it will answer your questions. :)
Thanks Jay. :)
Stinger, here you go:
Thanks fella's, it was fun making it. :)
The wheel actually fell off three different times, had a real issue keeping it tight without proper tools at the lake.
The best way to recover the boat...
Here is my Summit, towing my Villain EX. :)
geezus, now I can relate. :D
Those look awesome with the Summit body on. Thanks for taking the time. :)
Could you post a pic with your Summit body on? :)
They look awesome. Pics on the Summit coming soon?
Hey, nothing wrong with you posting them! I was only making fun at hal001. :D
I put the Titans on just as a test. I am back to the stock Summit wheels/tires now so you are the Titan man now!...
If you look closely at my pics, you will see that I had the Titan wheels and tires mounted on my Summit when I posted this thread:
Going down the 1st page in this forum, I cannot find anyone from Traxxas answering any of the questions, minus the sticky at the top from Peter V.
Because it would be nice if somebody from Traxxas who worked on this radio system would actually answer the questions being posted in here instead of all the speculation from other consumers....
I just received a set of Duratrax 5000 mAh 7-cell batteries and tried them out the other day.
For one, the truck runs much faster with these than the stock Traxxas packs that came with the truck....
Looks more like a lawn mower to me. ;)
Jeff, thanks for your reply. However, I wish to avoid buying a dozen new ESC's if possible. I would like to learn if there is a cheap electronics solution such as small component part that can be...
Yes, you want the fan to draw the hot air up and away from the heat sink.
I have installed a NIB 5-channel Link receiver into one of my model boats. The transmitter is a new 4-channel LINK transmitter that I just purchased. The Tx works fine in my Summit, and it works fine...
Jack of all trades and master of none?
That describes it pretty well. It makes compromises so it can do everything well, but it does not do anything to perfection.
That what makes the Summit...
Hmmm, why would you want to put an 18V motor into a system that can only use 16.8V max? That motor will never develop full power on the lower maximum voltage an EVX can deliver.
