Like the title says, I’m going to be putting together my first on-road electric sedan. I plan on racing the local beginner’s class with the following specs:
Chassis: any 1/10 scale 4WD touring car
Motor: any 27T brushed or 17.5T brushless
Battery: 6-cell or 7.4V lipo
Body: any 190mm or 200mm touring car body
Tires: rubber touring car
Minimum Weight: 1500g
At the advice of those on these boards (thank you by the way), it was recommended that I hit the track and see what most people at the local track are running – so I interrogated half of the people at the local club race last Saturday (plus lots of internet research). It seems as though most people at the track are running a Hot Bodies Cyclone TC; so I believe that this is the chassis that I will go with.
What I need is advice on everything else. Most people seem to run a myriad of different things. Can I get some advice as to where to go from here? I’m going to hit the local shops this weekend, but before I do, I’d like to have a bit of an idea (as well as additional research) under my belt before I start shopping.
I have “some” criteria:
• 2.4 radio
• I’d like to keep everything around $1,000
Outside of that, I I’m pretty open, but I do need most everything including radio, ESC, motor, charger, power supply, etc.
Suggestions as to what I should (or should not) be looking at? Just trying to get ideas here….
Thank you in advance!
