Yo - thecoldone,

One of the best things you can buy for yourself is a good quality Battery Charger like the Swallow 2 or similar.
They charge everything and it also saves on having 1/2 million of those crappy ( =usually black)
chargers everywhere that usually
1- look the same
2- Take ages to charge
3- dont give you any useful info on the battery
4- I'm sure there's more things that sukc about those chargers but i cant remember right now...lol

Re your tuning issues.
Go down to your local track or wherever there are some RC'ers having a bash and ask them to give you a hand.
RCers are very helpfull if you ask them nicely and are usually always ready to help. ( in my experience anyway)lol
If you can get someone to actually show you what 'this thing' and 'that gizmo' does it can help a great deal.

Cheers, Kal

Hey ffactory666 the Jammin SBB are pretty much a straight swap. All you will need to get is longer screws. I had to get m3x35 for mine, although m3x32 would probably be long enough (if available).

All hinge pins are captured, the manual is not coloured though, trust me you won't have any problem building it, just shim diffs and hubs properly.
I'm also looking for a new engine, but not sure which one hyper28, GO.25, STS D28Pro or STS D30M... any suggestion guys? it's not for racing, just bashing around, sometimes I even install Pirate Sport MT tires, they are huge! that's why i'm looking for a new stronger engine, I do have Hyper ST RTR and pro tires, but that tires just badass!
below are my Hyper ST with pirate tires and my GS CL-1 (yeah it's a 1/8 buggy)

The JPX28 is an outstanding engine for the Hyper ST or any other truggy...

Save that cash for tires, fuel (getting more expensive by the day BTW), gas for the drive to/from the track (also getting more expensive...), and entry fees. Your Go engine is plenty for racing. I doubt you'll be able to drive any faster after droppping in that OS Beast. I know I'm not good enough to make use of the power difference between the two mills. Upgrade your radio and/or servos if you need to. Buy some good tools (hex wrenches, etc). You get the picture.


In case I haven't been clear.......RACE WITH THE GO ENGINE!!! If/when it finaly poops out, then buy that badass OS if you must (or just buy a Picco/Jammin or another Go).

Hey Arct1k, That is friggen awesome! I love it. I have thought about doing this in a buggy, how did you go about selecting your motor gearing? Also the ESC, MMM - is that the Mamba Monster Max?

Thanks - Yes it has a MM in at the moment as my MMM failed - But it will run a MMM (Monster Mamba Max) when v2 is available.

Any tips or setup sheets for the ST Pro?

What shocks are people changing to? Threaded CRTs?

Any spares I should stock up on?
