    I did, and it seems to move the swash plate more in reverse than forward. Like it physically has more travel in that direction, or maybe there is less resistance for some reason, so it is able to...

    DR1 slow going forward?

    I have a new DR1 and really like it so far. One issue I am having is that the forward flight is so slow, about 1/2 the speed that it can fly in reverse.

    I have tried calibrating it multiple...

    I think that in your quest for insane power and speed, you are making some serious sacrifices.

    First, you are ripping tires off which will lead to increased costs and downtime.

    Ok, cool, that is what I was expecting. It seemed to me that the ESC could not tell where the motor was or something like that, but once you moved it it was fine.

    Personally, I am not that impressed with the Castle 1/10 motors. They seem to run very hot no matter what you do.

    I am running the stock VXL system with 30C 2S Lipo, and using 13/50 gearing and...

    Out of the box, my Slash PE turned better to one side than the other. It turns out that the steering was not centered, so I had to compensate on the remote by adjusting the trim to one side by a...
  11. Best place for preglued wheels and tires?

    Went out to the race track on Saturday with the new Slash PE. Very fast, really nice truck, but the stock tires absolutely blow for a race track. Car spins out all over the place.

    The pinion they sold me was the wrong pitch, so much for that! I did however see that I have a 52t and.50t spur gear, so I dropped in the 52t spur and I will see how it performs and go from there.

    The tracks are designed for 1/8 scale primarily, so they are pretty big.

    And I also picked up a set of blue RPM A-Arms to keep on hand. :-)

    I ran my 1/8th E-buggy on a very wet and muddy track, and when I tried to carefully rinse off some of the 10lbs of mud before the race, I got some water into the ESC.

    Well, I don't plan to add heatsinks and fans and stuff in order to avoid a meltdown, so I will probably need to run lower gearing or something.
