Just wanted to introduce myself and share my excitement with my newly purchased Rally. This is my second RC car, my first being a JATO. With that said I'm new to the electric scene, and I'm glad I went down this road instead of going with another nitro.
I was previously leaning towards the Rustler VXL, but my LHS really sold me on the Rally. Since I had the Jato before I know what that kind of speed feels like, so I decided to go with the 4wd and have some fun at a more "controlled" pace.
I've taken it on two runs today and WOW is it a blast. Gotta love the 4wd drifts kicking up all sorts of road debris. I'm in NY and we have lots of snow right now, so I figured it would be perfect for testing the capabilities of the Rally. So impressive. I might raise the ride height a tad for the snow, but I really don't know if it's even necessary.
I went ahead and grabbed a 2-C 5800maH LiPo battery while I was there with a nice LiPo charger. Like I said, I'm new to electric so I have virtually no experience with LiPo. Honestly, I'm a bit intimidated by it at the moment so I haven't ran with it yet. I'm going to wait for some drier conditions or some time to thoroughly seal the battery before I take it out for a run. I'm expecting great things from LiPo!
So, I made a little snow hump to get all the wheels off the ground and had a blast ripping this around the "plowed" parking loop.
Upgrades are imminent so stay tuned! Thanks for looking! No comments on color choice are needed, as we all know that I made the right decision. Enjoy some pics of the day!
w00t w00t! Not too many trucks on the market will take a belly full of packed snow like that and live to tell the tale. I'm sold.
