Florida? I'm from Alice Springs Australia.
Sounds awesome Jordan, especially to someone who has never even seen snow. Got any YouTube vids?
I always found dirt hawgs ok as an all round tyre, but not great for track racing. Soft Proline tyres are good, I don't know if Fuzzy-Ts are still avail, but they're awesome.
Now try 8 cells. Make sure your ESC can handle the voltage though.
(I did 8 cells through the MSC before I bought my ESC).
Hey Platinum, good to see one of the old crowd.
Like I said, I've really only done a few mods since then - mostly dremel work nipping out bits and pieces from all over the chassis.
Yeah, that generous cousin could donate one of those huge boxes of gear to us !! :D
Maybe not. :(
You can actually stiffen the standard diff by packing it with grease - obviously it's not track-adjustable, but it's a kind of limited slip none-the-less.
And exactly how would you know how much positive input I've made or intend to make into this message board?
In fact I have made a substantial effort to educate in the past - and this...
Was I bragging about on-road top speed? I don't think so...
Back in the day this truck was about as hopped-up as it could get without using titanium parts.
I've done a bit more work to it since (mostly chassis work) but nowadays I'm sure it's nothing...
An old post but a good cheap mod .
Hey I'm sure everyone's done it at one time or another (including myself), to satisfy their curiosity.
What I'm trying to say, however, is that top speed on-road isn't the be-all and end-all !
I know some of these links will be dead by now, but some of them will be useful.
You mean you just got your Rustler and you've already broken the front bulkhead etc?
Wow, what did you do, drive it top-speed into a brick wall or something?
I've had my Rustler 2 years and...
Did you not read what I said properly?
My point is that these are important factors in overall SPEED which everybody forgets about!
If you think they're so boring,...
It's been a while since I was on this message board, and I doubt anyone remembers me, but it seems that people are still talking about the SAME OLD STUFF.
Everone is interested in how...
To tell you the truth, I found that Dirt Hawgs were terrible on dirt but excellent on-road.
I haven't been back to this forum for about a year and don't recognise anyone's names! :(
Anyway, I have finally got around to posting some pics of my Rustler in various stages of...
Well as I said I get most of my gear from
They're really good - I can usually order and receive the stuff the following morning.
The one at Ryde is the best, although I did get some good footage of the St Ives one when I strapped my video camera to the chassis of my Rustler and drove it around ! I've raced against petrol...
Hey Dean I have a Stadium Thunder as well. It's my basher - it doesn't have an ESC but I put bearings and a 13turn double into it and it's almost as quick as my Rustler (but handles like a brick).
I live in Nth Syd - get most of my parts etc online from - Hobbies Australia www.hobbiesaustralia.com.au
Have you raced at the Ryde track? What about the one at St Yves?
I have 3 Tamiya cars plus...
It's been ages since I logged on so I'm surprised anyone remembered me (thanks Nitro Misha).
The names seemed to have changed a lot around here (not to mention the board itself).
It'll handle almost as many cells as you care to fit in your car - remember thought that the higher the voltage, the more prone to sparking/shortcircuting the MSC will be. As long as you keep it...
Yeah I made a discharger with 10 globes and then the auto-cutoff as per the Hamilton Club site. Using the 10 globes, a fully charged pack discharges in a few minutes - a mostly-used pack cuts off in...
