Question, somebody knows what kind of motor can I use with the stock ESC from the RTR version?? Can I use a faster motor without changing the ESC??

The Cirtix Stock Club Race ESC can "Support up to 9.5T motor with 2 cell lipo" per Speed Passion website.

Can't really rotate the cap as that moves it way too far to the other side since there's only 3 screws holding it together.

This is putting the solder tabs either way inboard under the slipper adjustment nut or way outboard but not in a vertical position.


I run the 3.5 motors and have just put the solder tabs under the slipper adjustment. there is enough clearance just not real fun soldering the motor in.

Thanx, that's what I ended up doing. And yeah, not fun getting the iron in there.

I assume you have the stock Sportsman 13.5 motor in it currently? You will see marked improvements in speed with a 9.5T motor... especially one with timing adjustments. It may not feel as "smooth" as the 13.5 is because of this..

but I would need more information about your track before making any adjustments. Track type, size, traction level, how are you on pace with others on the straights? are you having difficulty getting enough speed for jumping correctly?

Have you tried a larger pinion yet? It will make a small difference in speed, but if you're looking at being able to dial in your speed better on multiple tracks and surfaces... I'd go up to the 9.5T... Most 2WD buggy racers are using an 8.5T, and it really depends on the surface. So you can get pretty close with a correctly geared 9.5.

Tried searching but didnt find the answer, what does adding spacers under the steering link ballstud do? The manual shows 2mm spacer but most carpet setups im copying have 5-6mm under it? Can anyone explain why please?

Spacers are under either inner or outer ballstud to eliminate bump steer. # of spacers depends on whether you run the steering link plate under the bellcranks or on top.

Are these things ever coming back in stock!? Are there any US retailers that have them? The only place I've found them in stock are online retailers in the Netherlands.

Are you searching the new "b type" with the new part # or the old one?

This is the new Type B gearbox, but I'd be happy to have either one at this point.

Why not? I did. Works like a champ.
