Sorry Funniekid, I thought I had access to a scale but I don't atm. Soon as I weight her I'll give that to you. But on another note, I have been dealing with castle since christmas working some things out about some esc's. Anyways, I learned today from one of the techs some good info about bullet connectors. I run straight 6.5mm bullets, female on the lipos and male on the esc side. Well if your not paging attention you could potentially short some lipos very quickly with how I have mine set that way. He mentioned that I could do all negative on like say the positive side, then male on the negative side and it will also eliminate the need for a series harness. By doing the bullets this way, there isn't a way to short your lipos when connecting in series. Pretty neat and smart if you say lol. So, I'll be switching over everything yet again to this better and safer way of connecting bullets in series.

So here is some data from a few 5s and 6s runs. I'm not sure how the data is collected over one run or on am average? But this is my first time analyzing one of these, and everything on the numbers look right except the max rpm. It's reading 114k, with a 1717 1650kv motor on 5s and sometimes 6s which is a max of 41,580 rpm.





Can anyone comment on the castle xlx data log?

The stock losi tires have been great for me, I actually like the soft rubber and foam seems to handle good to my liking. But I have seen many others not feel the same way, but after some hard bashing it seem these tires have finally had enough.....I picked these up second hand originally so I'm not disappointed at all.

I ordered some 17mm hexes and 3.8 trencher X's are on the way next week hopefully. truck runs great otherwise

Anyone in Los Angeles ? Been wanting to run my converted LST against other LST.
I think I've reached the end of the project. Can't think of anything else to do with it.

What made you go for the trencher x and not some other pattern?

I have ran the trenchers on my emaxx in the past, I have also tried the mashers, badlands and I just love how the trenchers perform so I just went straight to it. I was able to get a pack ran thru her earlier today with the new trenchers, and it hooks a lot better and stays planted. Those stock losi tires are super thin rubber and it seems like mine had thin foam in them. But I did pick those up used, the stock losi tires got the job done.

I have been a proline supporter, haven't tried tires from other manufacturers.

I think the super swampers are better than big joes II though, they grip better on all surfaces and makes the truck turn better ^^. According to proline, the trencher x and super swapers have the same frontal traction.

Also I was serious about the kissing hihi, and dont forget to store the truck on a stand otherwise the foams might get flattened like in my case.
