How did you time and gear your 10.5?
hmm that was a while ago now but i think i had a 24 tooth on there with 30 boost and a bit of turbo as well but i am using RS Pro Tekin so i am not sure how that works on the speed passion esc mate

dont be scared to give it some boost and punch and a 10.5 will be super fast and controllable in this buggy


EDIT i think it might have been a 25 tooth pinion mate not 24

Yeah 10.5 is a great starting motor if your new to the buggy and on a smallish track. Smooth power and cool runnings, and you can boost it up

+1

Toby is 100% correct. I run with Toby at our local track and just last week I tied the track speed record (while I TQ'd) with my Castle MMP powered Novak Ballistic 10.5T.

When you walk in, the suspended shelf (ceiling) in the center of the aisle, bottom shelf all the way to the right. There's 5 Durango kits, saw them last nite.

Personal reasons. I have to really work hard to get the car dialed every track change. I have gotten it fast and competitive but not consistent. The buggy doesn't suit my driving style as it is inherently aggressive. Not selling it as its a work of art. All carbon, titanium and ceramic bearings.

I think I will be more competitive with something that has ball diffs. Thinking Schumacher k1.

ever think of driving it stock to allow it to flex and w/o all the carbon and aluminum? carbon has a "snap back" trait that makes it less desirable on narrow designs on dirt..

they can be aggressive and does need to be tuned like an actually race car but i actually found it to be very forgiving once you soften it up and let it do its thing.. gear vs balls diffs that a whole other story.
