I'm thinking about getting one of these trucks too. Anybody have the RTR models and if so, how good are the electronics?

Had the weather not delayed it I would have mine today and could let you know something. I do plan on a motor upgrade later on though.

hi guys how r u?

I have pick up a 1/10th hyper tt pro to have bit of fun with and some occasional racing. I install an lrp sphere comp esc with a 6.5t motor.
I have reset speedy to the 3pk controller and all works good.
The problem is i have set the punch control to the lowest and apply alot of -expo on the throttle and it still accellerates pretty hard of the mark with the slightest input. which i think will put alot of stress on the driveline. aswell as make it pretty hard to drive in slippery conditions! At first i thought the speedy hadn't calibrated properly so i reset it again and put in the nuetral point, full throttle and full brake points again. But it is still the same!

Does anyone here know any tricks with the 3pk to tame it down a bit or is this how it is with these new generation electric buggy/truggy when they dont have slipper clutches?

the only way i can think of is to put a bigger pinion on and reduce the top speed
at the moment it has the std 13t pinion.

thank for any help or advice you can give me!

Nothing wrong, just boiling the pieces strengthens them apparently...

Oh I switched out the steering rack bushings for Avid bearings too and feels like butter

Oh cool! I used to boil my suspension parts too. But to correct you, it actually softens the plastic so it's not so brittle. That way it will flex more when a force is applied to it.

You have to put on a bigger pinion. I have a similar setup and I'm up at a 17t pinion....

Actually going up in pinion size will actually increase your top speed but it will calm down the bottom end. If you want to remove some top end just dial down your throttle top end end point on your radio. Those 2 things should work for you!

Punch control should be at a higher setting if you want less punch off the line. Thats how it works on the Castle software anyways.

And a bigger pinion will give you more top speed. Not less.
As for "calming" down the bottom end, it wont help a lot unless we're talking 6-10 teeth. Electric motors have a lot of instantaneous torque as we all know.

Try upping your punch control and leave your throttle end point. Should be good after that.

If your radio has curves, just put a negative throttle curve in.
