goes the bump
Is Kershaw Designs the ONLY place to get 6mm pinions?
Or maybe this one:
Thanks for the tip!
Any idea what the dimensions are...
The E-revo (brushless version) comes with a 2200kv motor and w/ stock pinion has a 18.83 gear ratio.
The Summit has Low: 70.18 and High: 25.34 gear ratios.
It seems, then, that somewhere under...
For RC, I primarily fly helis. I have quite a number of lipo cells lying about. From 1S 110mah to 8S 4200 mah. I think a great pack for this truck would be 2x 3S 2500 packs in series, which I have a...
Thank you for the reply.
Perhaps a better question would be:
What kv would be recommended for 6S?
My goal is not land speed records. Just good, strong, reliable power with great run time.
Do you know what the Kv of the stock motor is? (roughly)
And what pinion does it come installed with?
In less ridiculous figures, it is:
180 mm long
28 mm tall
40 mm deep
For the search engine:
battery dimension summit size maximum biggest lipo bannedito
Is the 1 1/8 dimension for height and width?
It is a Villain.
My latest incarnation of this boat (I have owned 3 - I bought the first one in 1993!) runs on 6S lipos, via 2x 3S 2200mah packs. I am using the stock motors and a Tekin 432M ESC...
Looking for the dimensions of the battery compartments so that I can source the max capacity lipo packs.
I have a number of 3S 2200 packs for a heli. Figure I could use them in a 6S config. But...
Wetted surface area is bad because it adds resistance (in comparison to air).
Making the back of the prop shafts point up will change the attitude of the boat at speed so that it is nose high,...
Exactly. I had a set of the super deluxe Trinity monster whatever motors for the Villain. Decided those motors just weren't meant for that job. They were like 10,000 watt heaters and were slow to...
But it is not exactly the same. If I replaced the entire drive train of a XX4 and made it 2WD, 4-wheel steering, with monster truck tires, and called it a XX4, it might draw a few...
Splashing sounds a bit too cute.
Why doesn't bashing work?
Is it really still a villain if the only villain parts left is the hull?
Why not get a good fiberglass hiull? Wouldn't hat be mo fasta?
For whatever it may be worth, I have purchased two T-maxx trucks and one e-maxx truck, all three used.
And I have bought four Villain boats since 1993. All new, but the latest one was RTR.
When the used ones hit eBay, I'll buy.
I am flat burned out on buying mediocre electronics.
I have thrown away 9 or 10 radios. What a friggen waste. It is ecologically unsound for anyone and...
What are the odds of using two 3S 2500mah 20c packs that I use for my T-rex 450 in an E-revo? I have a ton of them.
For whatever it may be worth, I used a T tube (came with the old kit boats for the "oiling system") on my Villain for a long, long time (1993 to 2005!) and it works great. In all my videos you can...
Hey man, nice boat.
I would happily post your pics.
PM me for details. Mostly because I want to see them bad!
Plus I own a webserver, heh.
How did you setup the props? Do prop blades enter the...
