    Erevo has their speed challenge, the slash has their racing set ups, the Tmaxx has their aluminum blings , Whe have our custom crawlers. Post up your set up, with detailed specs and a few pics, especially if its customized but ofcourse all is welcome - Lets bragg. Since its my post - Me first. Me first. Me first



    mine

    Name : Pit Bull Summit
    motor : TEkin 1900kv T8
    ESC : Tekin RX8
    Spur/pinion : 22/54
    Batts : (2)3s lipos in parallel (10000mah)
    speeds : 35ish
    Run time : 1hr 10min - mostly crawling
    WHEELS/TIRES : CEN GENESIS 7.7 (COMBO)
    BODY : Jeep Rubicon
    Suspension : Stock long travel
    Radio sys : Spektrum DX3R
    # of lights : 14- stocks + light bar

    Bolt ons : Led light bar, 23mm hexes, aluminum servo guards and skid plates,

    Custom :
    hand made aluminum roll cage, Led light wired to body post , so the lights come on when then body is placed on the car, 4WS (rear steer), Hobbywing $10 208oz torque servos all around

    Comments : good speed, a little top heavy to be a serious rock crawler but does well on hills, motor gets a little warm with serious bashing (will go down to an 18 pinion soon), roll cage is INDESTRUCTABLE I could roll down Mt. Everest without a scratch, 2.5 foot turning radius with rear steer, tekin slow crawl is amazing.

    I do like the idea of this thread. we should be able to brag a bit about our rides. I am still in the testing phase of my latest setup but this is it.


    motor : Novak HV 7.5
    ESC : Traxxas VXL 3s waterproof
    Spur/pinion : 14/68(working best so far)
    Batts : (2)3s lipos in parallel (8000mah)
    speeds : 27ish
    Run time : 1 1/2hr - mixed crawling/bashing(estimated)
    WHEELS/TIRES : RPM Revolver/Losi Claw MT
    BODY : Jconcepts Bajr
    Suspension : Stock long travel
    Radio sys : Traxxas HO
    # of lights : zero

    Comments : Motor set up is unproven, still in testing phase. Custom built 4WS setup(also still in testing phase). It is crawling extremely well for what it is. still a lot of work to do.

    Everybody is allowed an opinion, if we are each happy with our own setup that is all which really matters.

    speeds : 30ish (3s) 50ish (6s)
    Run time : 1.5-2.5 hrs (3s crawling), 25-40 minutes (6s bashing)
    WHEELS/TIRES : Stock Canyon ATs on Geode rims

    Bolt ons : RPM front A-arms, Aluminum bumper mounts (bought before RPM bumper mounts were available), Traxxas wheelie bar, Hi-Tec steering servos, Finned AL heatsink for the NeuCastle motor

    Custom : LED lighting (each LED wired independently with it's own dropping resistor for max lumens), Fully shimmed differentials, External capacitor bank for the MMM ESC, "Phono" plug/jack for lights on the body (jack mounted on chassis).


    Comments : Amazing speed (on 6s), and a very good rock crawler (on 3s) though like mentioned, it's a bit topheavy (tends to flip backwards on steep climbs), The 8 Cree lights make for awesome night driving, a very good do-all truck that just never gets boring (my E-Maxx just sits now lol).
