    Our experiments have sadly ended...Both sets of Johnson's only lasted a handful of runs, but I can't positively say it's their fault.

    Somehow the bearings came out of the endbells in the first...

    If it's bogging when you nail the throttle all at once, but you can slowly get to full throttle, it's choking on fuel...of course there would be plenty of smoke when you kick it (the best indicator)....

    Chassis options

    I recently went to the Torpedo chassis on the E, and it's worked out pretty well. Seems that you could cut your own Lexan chassis to save $ if you can get ahold of a template for it, however...

    Our first set of Johnson's just went in the trash today...but we had a backup set that made it through three packs (7 cells, GP 3300) so far.

    Hi Chief,
    Many folks will replace the pegs with diff balls (bearings), then use a washer & nut to lock it down tight vs. spring/nut. I've run bearings in place of pegs, but didn't skip the...

    We have the PL steering kit on both T/E-maxxes & the nut loosened often. I stuck a spare stock shock spacer on 'em & no problems since. Fixed & Free.

    not worth $pending for

    I'm usually one to grab a bolt-on/aftermarket part for improvement, but couldn't see spending the $ on an aftermarket brake or the time for grinding on my nice new chassis to do the double disk...

    Cutout

    Regarding the cutout in back...you may wish to leave the corners rounded. Square corners crack easily.

    Dunno that it would make that much of a difference. If I ever get to the point where there's time enough, I might dremel the stock plate similarly. It honestly doesn't seem like it would do much,...

    Keep up where? If it's short course/track/bashin' you will do well with 7 cells & gearing. The key to "keeping up" is mostly driving ability. The E is much quicker off the line, so if you can also...

    Redo it

    Nitro413 is right...mineral spirits generously applied to a cloth & wipe away. It was a recent tip in RC Car Action.

    You will really enjoy the E - and you're smart to be researching here so early. Knowledge and opinions abound, so take your time separating them.

    The motors (and ESC for that matter) are one of...

    of course!

    Yeah, locknuts...now we're talking. I hadn't thought about cutting a flat seating surface into the bulks, but just about stuck nuts on the longer screws anyway. I'll give this a shot.

    anyone have a picture of the Torpedo with all their gear installed? I need to see how the battery cups layout with the electronics. With the racebomb & G-maxx the cells are below the electronics.

    Back to the subject...

    I was just looking at both chassis last night. The new G-maxx chassis can be extended (with additional $30/$40 parts) which would make it the same length, or very close to the BPP chassis.
