Here are some updated pics. I received the 40 series tires, 2nd VXL system, 32P pinions as well as the Spektrum DX3 system. I threw the new parts on and did a quick run. I am very happy with the system. It has a ton of torque and great speed. Wasn't able to open it up all the way as it was dark out and the tires are not yet glued. I blew both rear tires clen out of the rims. I have to finish setting up the spektrum and fine tune the suspension. I am still waiting for the steel gears and 2 - 5000mah lipos to arrive. I also ordered the JConcepts Illuzion MGT Heavy Duty Body. Will keep updating. Thanks
The entire rig came in a 9lbs and 3ozs not inclind twin lipos awating delivery. The whole rig should come in right at 11lbs.
Not ready for full speed runs. i am waiting for my 2 11.1V 5000mah lipos to arrive. Also waiting for steel tranny/diff gears coming next week. Once everything is in place and fine tuned i will do a full test.
Make sure the gear mesh is good, and the ESC's are set EXACTLY alike. if you're not careful you'll probably strip the spur gear.
Lol, i would like to see this too. it looks like it'll haul some butt!!!
good luck, Cheers!
Thanks for the positive comments. I synched both motors and got the gear mesh as perfect as possible. I did 1/2 throtle runs yesterday and everything looks good. The diff was slipping a bit but it wont be set until I have the steel gears in hand. I will probablu tape the inside tires as the tires were balloning something fierce at 1/2 throtle.
Small update while I wait for new lipos, Kyosho aluminum shocks and steel gears. I added aluminum body posts, heat sinks for the motors and vxl fans to both escs. Need to paint the JConcepts Illuzions MGT lid. Also replacing remaining phillips head screws with hexes. Having some "Twin VXL" decals made.
