Default 1/10 electric truggy build. so far so good, but more to come

im converting my tamiya dark impact to an electric 1/10 truggy. currently using cheap shocks off an old kyosho, an old body from the same kyosho, and road hawg tires on HPI SS monster wheels. so far it looks good, but im going to be getting slightly longer suspension, a body with a longer wheelbase, a longer chassis, and either a mamba max 5700 or 6900 brushless motor. also will be putting pro-line hole shot tires onto it instead of the road hawgs. i plan on getting a 1/8 wing and cutting it down to fit onto a wing mount that i am planning on building for this, most likely using a 1/8 mount. driving in the street so far, the truggy does very well. with a 17x2 mod motor and my tekin rebel2 speed control it has plenty of acceleration and speed. about the speed of an e-maxx and with as much if not more acceleration. the road hawg tires stick to the pavement like they are glued there. over small jumps, they truggy floats a mile. a small bump can send it 10 feet with ease. and air control is very responsive and the truggy stays extreemly level on or off the throttle. updates and more pictures will come when i get the new suspension and longer chassis. will also try to get some action pics and videos soon

out of curiosity to see what a mamba max system might do to the truggy, i went and put my reedy neo-one 4star motor into it to see what it could do. man this thing ripped. considering the motor is mostly used in TCs, i had to gear it up pretty high, so it wasnt at its full potential, but it did good. it would ballon my road hawgs, and if i picked it up off the ground and gave it throttle, it would pull the tire off the wheel. and with the stronger and faster motor, air response was even more responsive than before. and this thing takes bumps like its on water, the longer suspension(cheaper but still longer and softer) helped and it could take small bumps at full speed and it wouldnt jump or hop off course. so far it runs good, but cant wait till i can put a longer chassis and better battery into the truggy.
