With brushless, weight is less important. As long as the car is not drastically overweight it can still be competitive.

Not in those pictures but I will test overdrive front, rear and without. Don't know exactly how this will affect the car's action

This is a pic of the front overdrive setup with rear 19T pulley

The first drawing may be misleading this is better

Nice, I miss the snow where I live. Planning on heading to mountains for some fun snow Rallye.

By chance, did you check to see if any snow / water got inside the chassis near receiver and esc?

I've noticed that dust gets in there quite easily..

No snow or water got inside the receiver and esc housing.
Hehe yes when dusty it's like a vacuum cleaner with the fan connected.


This is more rally, maximum suspension travel 20mm front and 21mm rear





Made some lexan covers

I like your tyres.. What brand are they?

Today I visited this 1/8 scale track. http://revrace.com/

I took my TRF201 and XV-01. I did not have much luck with my TRF201, I'm new to off road buggy and did not have the correct tyres with me. So I decided to run the XV-01.

I ran a 96T with 48T pinion and 17.5. The car was very fast and controllable. I wish I had your tyres, they would have been better for loose dirt. I was running HPI rally, they were pretty good.. As usual with this car, the rear was a little loose at times.

Everyone at the track was "SHOCKED" and so was I! I was able to clear every double jump except for 1 (photo bellow, distance was too far for 17.5 motor). Since its an 1/8 scale track for buggy and truggy, you can imagine the size of the jumps. My XV-01 was sometimes 6 ft / 2 m in the air and it landed 95% of time perfectly. I ran two battery packs and zero broken parts.

Something interesting I learned. The TRF201 guys are running the XV-01 rear hubs, because it has multiple holes to adjust roll centre on camber link. So I assume the opposite is true, we can run the TRF201 rear hubs. The advantage is that they will give us different toe angles. At the moment there is only one XV-01 suspension blocks , so its not possible to vary rear toe.

Camber link adapter, gives additional options for changing roll centre

Did you at the start, bend the Novak motor solder tabs up to make them straight in order to clear the plastic motor cage?

I'm about to start my Xv-01 build too, and really wanted to put a 10.5 Novak on. Not sure if it will fit with those tabs on the back.

That is impressive indeed. I had the preconception that the front motor chassis would be totally unbalanced for jumping.

Before you start assembling it, may I ask you a favor and weigh up the main chassis part?

thanks

I've had my Kit since July 2012 (last year) and it's still sitting inside its freight box unopenned...

I'm only starting to gather up the electrics for it as I've put other RC projects infront.

I don't think I'll be opening the kit until about 3-4 weeks from now....

This is how I installed the ballistic in mine

Darkluna took a different approach, I'll leave it to him to explain.
