Cool, I didn't know the mvbashers started again. Good times over there!
Excellent build! One suggestion though, I think you should lower your body. It adds a lot to good looks and maybe even some handling. Try to mount it as low as possible -_-
The RB Concept S3 isn't a bad idea. Not a bad idea at all! It will fit your big block mount without mods, it's a very good engine for the price, and it's not as brutal as its bigger brothers (I'm...
RB Concepts header (192 I think) The one that comes with the RB efra 063 pipe combo
Thanks. The battery holder is from Xtreme racing (http://www.xtremercracing.com/REVO.cfm)
The diffs and axles are still stock and are holding up fine (*knocks on wood*). Haven't broken a stub pin yet. The clutch bell is hardened steel yes, and I'm using indeed a Robinson Racing steel...
No worries, your servo is fast enough! ;)
- Take a normal car (without servo steering), and try to move the turning wheel when standing still.
- Drive it 20mph and try to turn the wheel now
Feel a difference? ;)
Good point. At one moment I was thinking of moving the fuel tank at the location where my receiver is mounted, but that would move a lot of weight to the engine side of the truck (although on...
Very good question. The original problem was the well known binding issue that I had when I was still runing the RB TM523. A big advantage now is that the throttle servo is directly linked to the...
Looks very good, but next time lift the wheels off the ground to show the "real" servo speed. Steering speed is reduced a lot when standing still.
Read skid wasn't mounted when I took the bottom pic I guess, no biggie ;)
About the CD/Rear brake, I ran the CD once in my revo, but I like a solid transmission, just cause I love the wheelies.
Just thought I'd share some updated pictures of my truck, I think I can call her DONE now (yeah right... :rolleyes: )
You could also add a shim to further reduce compression (and you can remove it after break-in)
This is oviously a prank. Nobody just writes "engion" every time wrong in the same way, his nick "captian", and he says he runs his engines lean. Strange, a guy that runs 3-4 gallons of lean engine...
Amaizing build! Ever since I read that the rd racing axles fit any type of 8th scale hubs (and not only the M2C ones), I was thinking of doing the same, getting offset from the axles and not from the...
You pretty much nailed it there my friend. What a lot of people seem to forget is that some guys actually enjoy building custom stuff, trying new things, inventing something that no-one has done...

- mugen clutch nut

- mugen 1.1mm springs

Thanks for the input matt, 2 more questions:
- how does it affect in-air handling when jumping? I suppose less rotating mass in the air means a bit more stability but allows less control?
- does it...
Would you recommend it to a basher?
So you like the RD racing quickturn with only rear brake over a CD with front/rear breaks?
Yeah, and now you're assured that your work won't be all for nothing in the near future. I'm about to order some badlands too to mount on lpr's. Do you think the beads of the rulux rims is the same...
Great, well done.
By the way, I sent a mail to proline racing yesterday to inform if they were making an LPR version of the Badlands, and they have no plans at this time to make that tire.
Thanks for the tips. Are you using the stock badlands foams? Aren't they a bit deformed now since you stretched the tires?
