Default 1/5 MCD MT Converted "Pics Inside"

Well its now official. I am going to start posting more on rct and get away from the other forums seeing that they arent much help to me "besides RCM" which is basically my home.

A short intro about me...

My name is Takedown and Ive been into r/c for about 10 years now, I currently own 5 r/c's that are in one peice and 3 that are not. If you've seen me somewere else you probably saw me at rcm because I dont post much on rcu anymore. I stuck 8k posts into that site and it really gave me no benefit. I currently have close to 2k posts on rcm and its helped me drastically compared with issues and projects I use to post on rcu.

But onwards to the build and pics... I started to build this thing last august and didnt have the money to get it running for awhile. Well finally all my stuff arrived "which took over a month" and I was able to run it for the first time ever. It was weird driving a r/c that is absolutely monsterous and not hearing the loud gasser engine. I really enjoyed it.

My old setup which are in these pics...

ESC- Astroflight 204d 60v
Motor- CIM oversized robotics motor
Battery- 18v 4000mah nimh HD "10s 5000mah 25c-35c flightmax is in the near future"
Driven- Chain and gear


Now for the pics of the old setup...
