I always use the cheapest way and the shipping to the Netherlands is about 1,5 weeks. So pretty quick...
The sizes at r2hobbies are not always that accurate.
If you mean the gold wheels I mentioned, they are indeed 52mm.
The width is 26mm. So you will need the 51mm drift tires that are 26mm wide.
Those t-drift tires (hpi or the cheaper china ones) are the best drift tires.
If you know how to put them on, then it's real easy.
What I do is this:
First take the wheels and put them in the...
Had some new wheels in the mail last week and thought I'd try them on the rally.
They are huge, with a width of 32mm. Got them here
They just fit under the body with a little camber:...
Just search for t Drift on ebay. There's some cheap replica's out there. Cost around 5 dollars for 4 tires.
I've got them mounted on some cheap wheels. They drift great.
For pics, have a look here.
Just search on: rcvp3820007
You'll find em ;)
Just got some wheels and drift tires in the mail. They look great:
No, unfortunately I haven't been able to go to the same track.
This might take another week or so (maybe longer). But on tracks with less grip, you can see that the car does have less roll.
I think the pictures should give enough information on how to make them.
About the parts... Well, that's an easy one, however it's a swaybar set of a competition car named E10 (purple should say...
Thanks! I really like the way they look (except for the purple ;) ) and perform...
T Drift tires (don't have to be originals!), just look for them on ebay.
No help needed. I know the effects of a sway bar ;) And even on this small rally car it does work.
My only question was if traxxas is coming with a sway bar for this car. And because there was no...
Yeah, me too.
Guess I'll find out as soon as I'm on the same track again.
Front should be fine. It works like it's supposed to... ;)
The way you are calculating offset is the way we do it in real life. A wheel with 50 offset (or ET50) will be sticking out less than a wheel with 25mm offset (ET25, the latter sticking out 25mm...
Thanks for the comment guys!
About the effect of the weight.
The camera isn't really heavy, but on such a small car it does weigh a lot. Especially with the complete mount.
The mount is however...
Made an onboard video yesterday with a gopro hero hd and the suction cup mount:
This is the result:
Well, I decided to make my own.
Until now it works great. Still have to test it at the same conditions though.
Here's some pictures:...
I guess we really need sway bars... if they help on a small car like these.
If it's griproll, then even sway bars might not work.
Yeah, it rolls over very easy when cornering at high speeds with high grip tires.
Even with the car very low.
So I need a swaybar set quickly ;)
I'll see what I can make by myself...
Today we took 3 Rally VXL's to the track (carpet).
On the stock tires is was kinda difficult to drive, but it was fun.
We tried some better tires for carpet and found out that the car rolls over...
Wow, love the looks of those wheels! Which ones?
Also, do I see a gopro mount on the roof? Got any videos?
Just wondering if you've tested this.
Cause just changing with a longer antenna will not always give you more/better range (and it looks ugly :unsure: ).
Those wheels are still for sale. You can only get them in yellow (white has been discontinued).
Search for them on ebay or use the link provided above (for the white ones) and browse down a bit for...
Did all you guys recalibrate your tx with the esc?
I'm running my revo with 1.29b and a friend is running 1.24.
There's no noticable difference in top speed.
Did a camper race yesterday and top...
Here's part two of that race:
