Novak's Edge 2s speeder can be used for brushless/brushed racing. I have a few of them, easy to use, as with any Novak unit.

Are you sure you aren't thinking of the Havoc? I have both Havocs and Edges, but only the Havoc instructions cover brushed (and it works well, although it's very large for a Mini). Is brushed operation a hidden feature in the Edge?

Yep, you're right. My bad! I have both and got the two mixed up.

Shopping for spare parts to make waterproofed so I can drive in the rain. What specs should I look for in a servo? or shouldn't I worry about it getting wet?

I'd worry about the speed control and the receiver....

Traxxas makes a line of waterproof servos. That might be a good place to start. Your best bet would be to find a video or two on waterproofing RC electronics for trail trucks. There are techniques that are as simple as stuffing things into balloons to complete tearing stiff down to encase it in epoxy. I just avoid water. haven't blown anything up since the puddle incident of 2008.

Savox also makes waterproof servos. None of them are exactly speed demons but should work ok on these. I use them on my scale trail rigs.

That's where I got my inspiration. I saw some videos of using PlastiDip and stuff like that, but my plan is just a few old sandwich containers and some hot glue around wires. Was planning on putting just short jumper cables for battery and motor in, and a servo wire, and then packing both the RX and ESC into the sandwich container and toss that in a ziplock if required. We're wanting to do winter rally and rain racing this fall, but want to have them be safe. Was going to order some servos as spares so if\when we do kill one, we can replace em quick. Probably will put the battery in something similarly shaped that should be waterproof as well.

Hey guys, big question about small parts: How does camber affect top speed? I'm running the stock, solid upper links on my M03. At the very low ride height we tend to run, they give a fairly insane amount of camber. I know this is generally good for cornering and bad for tires, but does it have an effect in a straight line?

I'm generally happy with my setup (crude as a rock). It corners very well as is. I've got a complete set of adjustable uppers I'm hesitant to install. How do you guys see it?

Except that the camber speeds tire wear, makes the tire smaller, which lowers the effective gear ratio, no changes.

3racing dif gear set or ta03 dif set ... do you need extra bearings to install in a m05 complete?

OOPS-edit

The 3Racing gear diff uses two 10X15mm bearings. The TA03 ball diff uses the same bearings as the stock diff.

Theoretically, yes. But taking tire wear out of the equation, what does it do? EG: Two cars bombing down the back straight, one with loads of camber, the other with almost none, how will the top speed of either be influenced?

I've got some ideas. Just looking for perspective.

For the TA03, no. For the 3Racing you'll need a couple 10x15x4 bearings.

Which has the biggest tires?

If your M chassis is getting passed on the straight....it isn't camber. IMO.

Tried, but failed, to go club racing yesterday. Last chance for me for a month probably.
