TB-02 drivers, got any tips?
I am currently putting together a TB-02. I've previously owned a TL-01, and an HPI Nitro RS4-2, both for parkinglot bashing. This time, I want to race, hopefully silver can motor racing at first..
I've read tons on suspension setup, toe and caster, etc. I still have a few questions though that I don't see many folks talking about:
1) What to look for in a steering servo? Quickest servo = best? Or the most torque? Or all-around lightest? Do standard size servos fit? I plan to use a Spektrum radio.
2) What speed controller is good for stock can motor -thru- a little bit hotter as I get better? I am currently leaning towards a Novak GTS Pro.. Is this a good ESC for this car?
3) What types of batteries? I've got a superbrain charger already from my electric R/C planes, so I know how to charge. BUT, what types of batteries are legal in racing, and do you guys go for the batteries that fit down into the chassis cutouts or no?
4) How/where to get started racing these cars? I'm in Annapolis, MD, if that helps..
Any other tips? Compared to the TL-01 I used to have, this current car looks awesome and very adjustable.
