Thanks for the info. That track is the coolest track I've seen.
The hobbywing does it with ease, I ran a 5.5 and 120amp speedy for 2 seasons in my 10sc and that has bigger tyres, a lot more weight and I was running a 12 pinion.
It's still just as fast as the day I put it in.

Running one in my TT and it's fantastic.

The newer hobbywing victory with the silver ends is also meant to run cooler than the older model.

He is very happy with the setup, the smile on his face last week said a thousand words lol. He has also sorted out the nose diving.
My mistake he was running his castle gear that day.

I gave him his hobbywing 5.5 a day or two after that.

It's just as fast if not faster.

Cheers Matt.

I would like to see that for sure. It's a great track to show performance of systems. What castle set up is he using in the first vid?
I'm still on the fence with the powerplant I want to use.

About the nosediving. it sounds like the slash 4x4. Having to be on the throttle in the air is no problem aslong as you have a powerful enough system to pop the nose up when needed.

I have to chime in here with the Hobbywing. The true 3650 Ezrun's are sweet motors. There fast, reliable and run much cooler than castle. Ive had the 5.5t motor in much heavier kits and geared so much higher than my Castle 4600 and it never hit 150! I would have to say that every hobbywing product Ive ever used(and Ive used several) is top notch! Xerun, Ezrun both are very reliable

as for nosediving, i put 2oz of lead weights right in front of the rear shock tower on the chassis.... made a HUGE difference in how it flys!

I was wondering if anybody has had this problem ( see pics ). I had it on a indoor carpet off road track for less than 3 minutes and this happened. Now I've been in this hobby for over twenty years and I know how to drive and I'm not a basher! I don't know if this is a factory defect or if it is a weak point in this kit. If anybody has any advice please chime in. Thanks
The first pic-where the pivot ball goes in, it is cracked.

F11972, sorry to see that man. I havent seen or hear of anyone else breaking like yours. Must have been a perfect cartwheel/crash..lol

Tedstryker, Just get some led strips from your LHS and install as far back and low as possible.

My question:
What class with the TT fall in or is it a new class. I've read about racing with 4wd annd minis. I hope this isn't a mini..

2680,
How do you like the SCT in the hyper? What gearing you run and on what size track. What about for bashing? How do you have the settings with the ESC.
Thanks I'm really thinking about this system since I can get it on tower with the 10TT and get $60 off.

Far from a mini! if there is not enough my local track throws them in with 4wd 1/10 buggy.

I'm trying to figure out why i am cogging from time to time and am swapping out my x-12 5.5 (540) for a scx4 5.5 (550) (mmp, 2c)

Currently have a 12 pinion. Should i adjust? To....?

Finally moved my battery tray forward also.

The stock shock bodies are driving me nuts and I've started using plumbers tape on the threads to keep them tight. Has anyone found/tried different/better shocks?

Go with a 13-14 pinion. You might have got some bunk shock bodies. I would call ofna and see if they can send you just the bodies (get a rebulid set at a-main or something). I think you will be set from there.
