try and look into ********* combos. You can get a esc and brushless motor for around 62$ combined.
Yes you will and it will go by you extremely fast.
3s Lipo. I cant remember the MAH on it though.
I lose interest in RC cars in the summer cause that is when I go out and race real cars. LOL so I lost my password so I just recreated another account. :)
I was not trying to sound defensive. And I am sure there are tons of people using cheap stuff out there. Its seriously all the same junk no matter what brand you buy. :)
Keep in mind while you are reading this, that I built this thing with the mind set to spend the least I can and still be able to go 90+ mph, possibly 100 once I play with the gears alittle bit. Here...
I got mine to do 77.9 with a 31/76 gear
To make a rustler go 100mph you will not have thousands of dollars in the car.
They make all kinds of aluminum parts for the rustler.
A kind of ghetto cheepie way to do it is get acouple zipties and ziptie the springs down. I do that when making high speed passes.
Which one and where is a good place to get one. Got a 1/8th scale motor on its way and need a way to mount it on the car.
A 31 pinion and 76 spur will net you in the 70's easy with a 3s lipo. You might wanna change out the tires. From there its being able to drive the car without it flipping over on its lid.
LOL thats my car. There is a video on my channel where it went 77.9 on the same setup. I just needed more room to leave it WOT. I've since rebuilt the car and am now shooting for 100mph.
Got about 1.5lbs on the front now. Still need to figure out what gear to run on it. I would think I could make up for the lack of torque with gearing.
32pinion and 76spure should be getting in the 70's easily.
Shouldn't catch fire if it is geared correctly.
I was really happy with the stock vxl system on 3s (77.8MPH) but now I wanna get the triple digits I got the foam tires, mamba max pro 9000kv motor. Just trying to figure out what gear to run on it....
