Project: Tamiya Sand Viper
I have owned a Sasnd Viper for around 3 months, but I was too busy with other stuff to really modify it. I plan on buying a new ESC and brushless motor, along with Li-Po when I have the money. I was wondering after doing a little searching, would a cf chassis be a good idea? Or aluminium? The DT-02 chassis at the moment is really bulky and heavy, and I dont like it at all. I would like to know if the stock gearbox would be able to handle a Mamba Max, or perhaps just a less expensive Novak Sport or Gt7.
The stock ride height is pretty low for me, so I may use some df-02 shocks if they will fit. I'll post progress once I've heard some views ..
