All these sensored set ups I see are popular, are they "waterproof able"? I had a giggle today when a guy I was running with smoked a mmp in the creek, $110 up in smoke... Thing smelled awful too

Awwwwww.WA WA WA .I think you can get some factory wp.I think hobbywing sct esc is wp and sensored. But most just diy.if you go the diy route I would recommend run an ebay search for sensored esc.there is a blue one that'll show up for roughly 20 new. It's a hobbywing rebrand. Version 2.1.I run it in my cr01.haven't wp it or anything but id try on a twenty dollar esc before messing up a good 110 dollar one. And to be honest I love the performance of the esc.

Right on, I'll give that a whirl one of these days. I need to throw a glitch buster in my rig as it sits, so glitchy with that monster Savox sucking up the juice! I want to try a tekin 550 sensored, but think I'll hold off for when I find a wraith to build. I'm beginning to really enjoy the crawling piece of this hobby and think I'm going to make this one a comp rig....although we have no comps around here so I guess I'll be competing against myself

They have a course not far from me. But doubt they get to technical on regulation. They have a sc as well. But they run open motor 2s.I build to please me lol. If my rigs won't fit regulations I'll run by my lonesome lol

You can waterproof a sensored system. Tons of videos to explain how on youtube. Definitely subscribe to squirrel if you don't already. im running a non sensored in my wraith at the moment and for bashing/trail its fine. For comp type crawling you must go sensored or brushed. IMO. Picked up a novak 13.5 I'm going to try with a tekin rs pro. Getting ready for a couple new builds. First is another wraith and other is scx10. Wraith is a way out as axles are ready and most of cage but no trans and skid yet. Scx10 is partial built 6x6. I need to decide whether to keep it 6x6 or not and maybe do wraith axles on that chassis or scx axle. Decisions decisions hmmmmm

a 6x6 with wraith axles would be very cool....!

IDK what to do about the brushless system, yesterday I changed gearing on mine to 20/80 with that 1370kv motor and i was impressed how much faster it was than stock(or what it came with when I bought it) 18/87. Of course, with that the cogging became very apparent while before it didn't cog much at all. wondering if switching to "high" start mode via the castle link might help? i figured sensored could be waterproof and oh yeah I definitely watch squirrel!

also installed the steel tranny gears and slipper from hot racing yesterday, holy loudness.

bevel gears.....any advantage to spiral cut versus standard?

Huge gearing change. Sounds too high geared. Changing setting with castle link may help but gearing change will be better. Spiral cut is stronger.

Very doable project. Ive seen the mounts to mount that trans on a flat plate. I still believe the hpi axles are the toughest axles out there in stock form.
