Well as of right now I have the 12 on it. I also down sized my motor from the 6800kv to the 5800kv so we will see where my temps are on Sunday..

Well this is my first post on these forums, and I can assume I'm going to get thrashed for doing this, but here are some pics of my typical TT.

Weight isn't too bad 2483g roughly on a scale, which is somewhere around 5.4lbs I believe, that is fully loaded with 5000mah 3s.

She is about finished, waiting on some odd and end parts.

BTW I do not race sanctioned events, I am 100% aware that there are much better and cheaper viable options for competitive racing, as there are better platforms to use the Monster on than a 1/10. I just love the 1/10 truggy platform and am set on getting this to perform reliably on the occasional twin 3s series use, which I already have fitted and complete, just too heavy for me to be worthwhile, for now...

Sorry but are you talking the steering knuckles? Just trying to get a list together for ordering.

Hey guys, first post on these forums, just posting some pics of my typical TT.

Don't flame me, I do not race sanctioned events, or competitively for that matter. I am well aware there are many other smarter and cheaper viable platforms, but I love the 1/10 truggy platform.

Weight fully dressed with 5000mah 3s is 2483g, right around 5.5lbs.

I have twin 3s fitted and ready for use sooner or later, but its just too heavy for me to be worthwhile at this time.

BTW the 6s use would be to lower temps and current draw, and extend runtime, not to demolish the poor truggy. Punch would without a doubt be dropped and gearing would be corrected.

Anyways, anybody have any advice on proper pinion size for the 2200kv on 3s for 40mph in the straights? I would assume 17-ish? I also am having some trouble getting some good info on springs, I need to compensate for the weight increase I already have, let alone if I go 6s.

Thanks in advance guys.

I already swapped to the delrin spur from STRC but it still seems like there's some noticable drag once per revolution of the spur gear. I can also visibly see it's slightly warped and/or out of true by a small margin. Is this ok? What's the proper fix? Should I keep cranking on those little screws? I'm afraid I'll strip it.

Thanks - Derrick
Bump, any ideas?

I also have about 1mm of vertical slop in both my steering posts. Is this normal?

Yes sir! I would get at least two sets of them for sure. That is the weakest part of the car..

Default what up!

got mine together! ran it around on the deck a little to see how my 13 tooth gearing was, motor( velociti 6.5) was'nt too bad but the spedo(older GTB) was hot, so i'm gona try an 11 or 12 tooth. i was gona do the ball stud mod, but changed my mind and just bent my own 54mm rod. it seems to turn good. i can't wait to get to the track and try it out! i think i'll get some panther tires. also as you can see in the picture i cut the side of the battery box so i could lay it down flat and get the CG a bit lower.

^^^^I rechecked my spur (STRC) and it's not warped, there might be something wrong there, also checked, and truck rolls free no drag at all.

Kinda stumped on what it could be.....

Thanks for the response, it's very slight but it's visible. Once per revolution it hits a low spot if you will. was much much worse with the stock spur but still exists with the STRC. Could be as simple as putting an extra turn on it but I'm hesitant with the plastic parts. Would you mind checking your steering posts?

So I put the STRC spur on to fix the leaking center diff issue...It's still leaking. I didn't counter sink the holes for the 3mm screws you are supposed to use (per DJ) instead of the stock 2.6mm screws. I actually tried to counter sink a STRC spur and I F'ed it up. So I got another one and just used the stock screws. I basically gave up and put the steel spur on the diff. Holy crap!!!!! This TT sounds like a freaking chain saw!!!

Some pics...

They are ok when it is dry. Holeshots or step pins when it is wet.

From the pin shape they look like Subcultures to me although I didn't think they made them for trucks. Only SC and 1/8th scale... But I could be wrong.
