Hi everybody I am looking to buy a TC5 for $150 locally but I need to know what spur gear and pinion size or whatever its called
I need to run for a mamba max esc and 5700 kv motor
so I don't fry anything or overheat my motor. I won't be running on any tracks so roar rules don't matter as the town I live in has no rc scene. I have a TC3 that I beat up on now bought for $50 from ebay but I bought it for something to run indoors as its snowing and icy here in Iowa and my other car a CEN CT5 is nitro so it doesn't like winter.
I know nothing about rc cars and sent my CT5 back to CEN when my pullstart needed replacing long story
I have read 350 pages of this thread and am getting closer to being up to date but I want some tips or help for when I get this tc5 or anything I can do to make my tc3 more fun or even common rc knowledge. I'm at the point in this thread (pg350) where the tc5r hasn't even been created lol
I hope someone can help me or even tell me what tools I need to adjust and maintain my rc cars, I have a spektrum dx3s with 2 sr3300 telemitry receivers, just bought it,5 sets of rubber tires slicks and belted, and 8 sets of foams tires from parma everything I own was bought from ebay like I said no local hobby scene so I buy everything online and always try to find the best deal what can I say I'm on a budget. I might be in over my head but I taught myself to fly last summer with a rc brushless jet that did 70mph out of the box and with fms and my desire to go fast
I terrorized my local pigeons and sparrows. When I finally found a rc group an hour and a half away to join they couldn't believe I learned to fly with a jet instead of a trainer.I will never race at a track probably so I don't really worry about what body is best or how to sauce my tires I just want my car to turn when I want it to and go straight from point a to point b in the least amount of time. I figure if I like the TC5 enough I will turn the TC3 into a drifter just so I can have a fast car and drift car, still trying to figure out where my nitro car fits in
I know the DX3S isn't as good as the DX3R I read all the reviews but like I said I'm really just going to bash wherever I can find smooth asphalt. sorry had to put that in just got a online beatdown for buying the DX3S
