Definitely get a lipo out of the deal. I dont think its worth it without a lipo. I sold my slash with RPM suspension parts, other mods, a nice charger, 3 batteries (2 lipos and one 8cell Nimh) for...
Thats what Im talking about. Ford for life!
Too bad its a Toyota.
Dude dont be afraid. All the other high dollar lipo's are all made in Hong Kong or China as well.
Just get yourself a lipo sack. I got mine from ebay for 8 bucks shipped, something like that.
I feel bad and am glad he made it with his family.
But I wouldnt blame the lipo. Maybe he set his charger to charge NiMH instead of Lipo or he charged it wrong.
I will still say it, dont be...
Looks like it can only handle 2s lipo. In my opinion thats not enough, you want atleast 3s. Run a VXL on 2s and 3s and you will see a world of difference.
If your into bashing then 14 pinion and 90 spur is a good combo to help keep temps down. I ran that using 3s lipo and temps were o.k. But I put a heatsink and fan on my motor, then used 18/86...
How did you bend the cage in rear like that? Did you heat it?
Looks good. How hot does the VXL get? How does it take bashing?
You must be a genius then.... cause you know what they say.
Great minds think alike. In this case, geniuses think alike. :D
Regular paint will chip like stated above.
You need this stuff:
You LHS should carry them. Before you paint, make sure you clean the body real...
Futaba for sure.
Is that a clothes hanger or a pipe cleaner (blue thing)?
Looks good though. I love custom stuff, its good to learn from others.
Wow for 70 bucks shipped thats a sweet deal. Looks killer. I wonder how it holds up to extreme bashing.
Bow tie looks sweet
Your running NiMH on a brushless motor, thats your first problem.
And get different gearing, like 20t pinion and 86t spur.
Get the ******* 5000 3s lipo's.
Shipping isnt really that bad, around 18 bucks and you will receive your batteries in a week. Order 2 of those batteries and you will be on the field bashing for 1...
RPM all the way :wub:
I used one when I had my Slash. I bought one off Ebay for 8 dollars including shipping all the way from Hong Kong. I always charged my lipo's in the bag, but never stored them. Almost all lipo fires...
LCG chassis and a better radio
Im going to say Castle. The 4600 will be awesome with the right gearing (19/86).
Last time I drove my RC in water was.......um never.
Personally I would stay away from no name brand servo's. I bought one off ebay for my 5B and its wack. Its slow and if something goes wrong with it, your stuck. I need new servo horns for it, called...
Yup give Traxxas a call. They should replace it, no charge.
I have been using it for 3 months now and honestly its a great radio. I have had ZERO problems and been using the same batteries for 3 months, and they are still good. The receivers are a bit pricey...
If you want the best bang for the buck then get this. Its not a cheapo Tactic radio and its not a 200-500 dollar Spekrum radio, which still gives problems. It works flawlessly and for 100 bucks you...
