Well I finally got to run my 10TT for the first time today and all I can say is WOW. The CC SW 3800 has a ton of torque. I'm using the 14t pinion but am gonna jump up to 15t or 16t. I ran 3 2s 5000 pack through it and had no temp issues so all is good. Can't wait to race next weekend.

Been reading though the thread and found mix emotions on diff fluid... I think the hyper tt has been out long enough for people to find their diff fluid set ups...

So what is everyone running in their diffs?

Finished my painted body. I suck at painting but I think it came out pretty good.



Lemme know what you think.

I think I ran 5/7/2 in my hyper 12, but I haven't experimented with this car much yet. I think the guy I bought it from said it has 5/5/2. He raced it so I figured it was already set up pretty good. I only drove it out front so far.

Very nice! I'm painting mine right now. Did you use a airbrush or spray paint?

Thanks. I used cans.
Fades come out nice with translucent or candy colors. Then back it with white. Don't try it with opaque colors. Doesn't work.

My ride:




Since pictures:
  • changed tires and wheels to Goosebumps on HPI 6 spoke
  • Changed shock oil; 35w front and 25w back
  • Put 5K oil in center diff
  • Replaced motor fan that was pulling too much amp

Response from the Mamba Max ESC (with 4600Kv motor) is very bad. I don't run throttle punch, no exponential curve, etc. All stock. Still the throttle response sucks. Like it has turbo lag; at first nothing happens and then it blasts off uncontrollably...

Now changing to a new Sidewinder SCT 3800kv combo I also run (and love) in my SC10. If that doesn't work will switch to RX8 + pro4

Love this little truck! A lot of fun to drive! Just the ESC...
