Default Our Jammin CRT.5 brushless is running......

The body is on backorder from our local Hobby Store and we're too stubborn (loyal) to order one on line, but in the mean time, here's the layout and a small video of the test run....

Novak HV 4.5 / Castle Mamba Max and BEC / currently 4 cell Lipo.

We had to tone down the throttle curve via the Castlelink to keep it from going ballistic, planning on toning down to a 3 cell to keep it on the ground and controllable on the track.

Enjoy:

Default Test run 2, on a track....

Still waiting on a new body, but a modified T4 body works. We toned it down to a 3-cell Lipo and still have too much power, will be trying a 2-cell next:

Nice looking conversion you got there. I am running 4s on my CRT.5 as well actually and its great! I decided to go with a MMM ESC though just to have less wiring. I am also running a Neu 1509/1.5y motor. If you ever feel like changing motors, definitely consider this one. Awesome power, and very low temps.

Enjoy the truck!
