Just because they were hoping for one doesn't make it right to label this a crawler and then call it crap.I believe traxxas decides what they will call it and they did not call it a rock crawler.
It's not going to go faster than 25 unless you use lipo.There is a video on rccaraction with a traxxas guy explaining everything and he said 25 mph.
The price is 514.99
WHY DOES EVERYONE IN THE WORLD LOOK AT TOWER HOBBIES!This is not and will not be the price! The price on the brushless revo is 684.99 and the summit is 514.99.
The summit is going to be available in december, so i would guess the same for the new revo.
$684.99 and it is going to be awesome!2 5000mah 11.1v batteries, this is going to be fun.
It's going to be 684.99
probably just got an old pack from the get go
Have you considered lipo....
They could have been balanced differently causing one to discharge more than the other.
I'm curious what these better batteries are?
The average a123 is 2300mah but 20-30 c so it is great for a short run.They are used more for flying applications than they are for cars.
that is just a 10 cell nicad battery, jprobably very low mah, no more than 3000.So run time is going to be short and the pack is going to weigh alot, if it even fits.
hyperion 0606i ac/dc charger is the best for the money.
It is common knowledge that a lipo doesn't drop under load like a nickel, thus it's appeal.
That is going to give you more power, but less run time.I suggest 5000 11.1v
A 5000 3s is as big as you can go in the slash, sorry
The third one isn't bad, but that first one you should stay away from.
I doubt the batteries will be damaged, they just won't work as well.
Here is a link to show you some configurations shttp://www.maxamps.com/products.php?cat=7
it's ok, but i would look for something else.
ya if you're going brushless you can use some 2s lipos and still be at a fairly begginer stage, but there is no point in going brushless if you want to stick with nickles.
So how are you liking the battery?
the revo is great and very durable.The enclosed battery chambers are sweet!You should be able to get35 mph out of it fo sho
Those are pretty small packs, most people are running at least 5000 mah packs.maxamps has 8000mah packs that fit it.
