    Yoloer, tough break. Been there before. I still dont think the smaller 1/8 motors are going to have as much torque as the 1717. They wont swing a gear as tall as the 1717.

    If you want to build something that is uniquely yours, buy a roller and put your own electrics in it. The xo-1 does 100+ out of the box, and does so very stable. Push the xo-1 to the ragged edge by...

    Interesting thread, but I just dont see the 2200 putting in a higher top speed than 1717. Just dont think the torque will be there. I wouldnt mind being humbled though. ��

    You very well could, and if your a skilled rc hobbyist, I would encourage it. You could build a real beast of a truck this way. Revo parts/lcg chassis/tekin or castle power. This is what most of us...

    +1 on the tekin RX-8. I also like my novak 550 5.5T motor. It comes off the track ice cold after a full 6 minute qualifier and 8 minute main. If I were to do it again, i would probably get the novak...

    The lifespan of the center diff really comes down to what weight oil you run in it. I had 10k in mine and it swelled on 2s. The more power it diverts, the more stress on it.
