Its been quite a while since I posted here with any regularity. Good to be back.
Question: What is the best way to lower the ride height of an E-Revo? I just finished painting a nice Proline Rat...
My replacement just came in Yesterday. It took so long that I bought a 180 Amp Seaking ESC and its so much better than the Spartan unit. 3 times as powerful! About $100 on Ebay.
Could not see the pic. Just had the path.
Oh man. Sometimes in the dead summer here in Central SC we go for days without hardly a slight breeze. A stagnent sweaty, humid mess is what it is....but I love it all the same. Hardly any winter...
I have the skills and experience to do just about anything relating to RC.
I'm turning my new Blast into a recovery/rescue boat. Since the Blast stock ESC does not even have reverse I'm going to...
What is the biggest NiMH battery that will fit in the stock blast? 7 cell? 8 cell?
Yep. Castle has a 1 year warranty on these. You send it into castle instead of Traxxas.
What size motor does the blast take?
Has anyone put in a 1/16 vehicle brushless system in a blast? Does it drop right in using the stock motor mount?
Bought mine from tower in August of 2011.
How long is the warranty on these ESCs?
How much do you have to pay for non-warranty replacement if the warranty period is up?
Its $70 for a Mamba...
Yep. There sure was supposed to be thermal shutdown protection if things got too hot. Sure did not work in my case.
Anyone else have this happen to a newer version Castle ESC?
I'm just suprised it happened to the newer Castle version. Lesson learned. Let 'em cool down!
I found another Castle VXL-6 for pretty cheap so Iím going with that for now. This was the newer Castle version too. I've been into RC quite a while but I've never totally toasted an ESC like this....
I'd go for the 8400s
My Spartan ESC was totally torched this weekend so I'm looking for a replacement ESC.
So does anyone know how many amps the stock VXL-6 can pull? Might get something other than stock.
That is too funny. Like the edit effect.
Forgot to say that if animal does want to make a video he'll have to use a small GPS - not that speed meter. Too many variables with that calibration. Can't trust it.
Animal must be showing 198 kilometers - especially since he is in the UK and especially since you can't see the GPS clearly in his pics. Even if he is showing kilometers per hour that is still 123...
Do tapered pointy prop nuts actually help the performance of a boat or do they just look cool?
I was pretty suprised to see that metal props for the Spartan run well over $40! Does Octura have the market cornered on these, or are there any other companies that make them?
Will any of these...
Anyone else have answers to the other questions?
Oh weird. I just posted that before I saw the pics you just posted. It was like I had immediate results!!
RCforever27, Do you have more pics of that new hull? I'd like to see it from the side and a bird's eye view from direcetly over it. If you have them post them here or you could send them to my...
Yep. I called today and they are going to trade my hull for the new hull.
I'm going to call Traxxas to see if they will trade my hull for the new version. It just isn't right. I paid for the new version. I should have the new hull.
I feel cheated getting the old hull with the brand new castle ESC version! Gaaaaa!
