The 6.5 is better for the straight speed in which i needed, I still ran for a long time without any motor fade basicly using up most of the batterry. I did however use our motor heatsink to cool the motor better and is definetly a good option to have for the motor. Tonite we race at West Coast again and now Kortz is wiring his up and will be out there with us to race tonite so look up rclive.com to watch the show there should be 8 of us.

again a question: i'll need another esc/motor combo. I was thinking about the mmpro but am undecided on the motor, only know i want 6.5 t, i will be driving on a small to medium indoor track (i know i'll have to tame it down ) but for bash sessions with jumping i need some power. shall i take the mmpro mamba 6700 combo or a sensored motor duo 2, speed passion or ballistic and the likes. i run a gtb 13.5 in my sc10 ft and tc and prefer it to the slight cogging of the monster2200, though i am not sure if on a smaller scale the cogging is the same... Thank you for any input!

Default SET-UP TIPS?

-R2-

Just got my TT today, planning on racing sunday @ my local track in the unlimited 4WD class. Dropping in a MMP & a 4.5 550 Novak

My question to you, or anyone else with some wheel-time on the TT, is what
fluids are working for you? Diff fluids front/center/rear & shocks front/rear?
Was thinking of going 7k/5k/2k or maybe 5/5/2 in the diffs, & 40wt front/30wt rear in the shocks.

We run on a medium sized, loamy track, with some decent sized doubles & triples.

Any pointers would be MOST appreciated.......thanks.

I have a quick question for the guys who have these, what do they use for tires? They look like regular 1/10th scale truck tires. Also, what wheels do they use? Thanks!

If possible could someone snap a pic of the wheel hubs whit the wheel off?

What I was thinking... If it would be possible to put Kyosho RT5 quick changes on this it would be awesome! I have a TON of wheels/tires for that!

They are regular 2.2 truck tires on 12mm hexes, I dont have any idea on the offset.

I am sure as these have sold a few more units that more setups should become available. Usually in my experience the box stock setup is usually a good starting point! I just might be getting one of these soon!
