This is my first real attempt at a Top-Speed setup...
I began with a factory Traxxas 4-tec and added a few off the shelf mods to make the car a bit faster than the rest...
...after initial testing with a brushed setup(35mph) i quickly noticed i was opening Pandora's box and installing every part that came in it! Within a few days the new parts began finding their way onto the car and with each testing session the "little 4-tec that could" became more and more like "the little 4-tec that WOULD!" ...here's a basic rundown on the setup:
7700kv BL motor (Mamba - added Mar-23-2009)
Mamba Max ESC(addded Mar-25-2009)
4000mah 3s1p LiPo
Futaba GY401 Gyro
Futaba 3PM FASST radio
Castle Creations 10A BEC
....(Current GPS speed as of 3/28/09 - 102mph....all testing is done with a Garmin forerunner 101 GPS mounted on the car.
My plans are to build the car to a competitive level for the ISC (International Speed Challenge) and hopefully get a crack at a record!..
