Hello,

I hope this topic is still active...
I have some questions, hopefully here are some guys to help me.

I have recently bought a vorza.
The gear setup is: 46 / 19 gear
Lipo: Gens 4s - 5200mah - 40c cont./ 80c short term (new)
Tires: originals out of the box

1 Question
I run last day on our base track ( short gras en mid size), not warm weather, and after the lipo save of the esc turned on, battery run time +- 10 a 15min, first battery was hot but the second one was even hotter even a little bit blown up!
Engine a little bit warm, esc same as engine, complete normal.
Ok, second round i drive almost all the time on full throttle, even true the corners.

  • Started from the esc i have the original cables 10awg, then i go to other connectors to 12awg, would that be the problem?
  • Or is it because i drive to long on full speed without a small break?
  • Or is the gear to small for the track, because i can ride to long full throttle?
  • Or other suggestions...

What are the best solutions for me, other gear combination, (cables have i already on agenda to change), other lipo...??


2 question;
- what is the best WT to use in the shocks?
My shocks in the rear are to easy to push in.

Thanks already for the help !!

Hi vorza guys im wondering if a vorza can use the same parts as a HB D815 tessman?

shock towers
cvds.
alloy hubs all round

well actually all of the front or rear ends bolted onto a vorza chassis. Still using the vorza steering assembly?

I needed the diffs chassis steering and centre shafts. The rest of the tessman buggy is no good to me. So im hoping i can list those parts to vorza owners as upgrades?

Thanks

hot bodies D8T i think that suits but im not certain however the parts look crazy similar so im hopful.

im trying to build a D8/Vorza MT. Using the D8T front and rear ends with a D8 or Vorza chassis.

HB D8MT tessman spec. A cheap tekno mt410 lol. But with much better materials like carbon and alloy shock caps lol. Tekno couldnt even supply alloy caps for the most expensive chassis kit i know of for bashing.

£415 + wheels, tires and body. = £150 from proline. So its a £565 roller. Plus elecs. £300 ish with budget hobbywing a good servo and mid range lipo.

£865 RTR tekno mt410 and ide say thats a minimum price for decent spec. Not the best but not all out budget spec.

$1.200 ish. Mental tekno. Not even alloy shock caps.

Anyone tried those CVDs on Vorza? It says 94mm drive shaft, so it maybe fit on the rear. It's much thicker than stock ones.

i doubt it. The axle appears to use a larger bearing on the inside of the hub.

But these fit...must use fronts for both front and rear

kyosho 1/8 buggy universals may possibly fit too. I use Kyosho truggy universals on my HB TRUGGY.

Hello there!

I just got my first RC car, the legendary Vorza! I already have an issue It is my fault, I just followed someones post telling them to get this battery and that it will probably fit. I would like to make them work because I have 2 of them and I don't know anyone that would buy them. I am unsure if I can return them but I would rather just figure out how to make it work.

SO.. how do I make this fit? It fits with no tray if I force it in. I think I will have to move that ESC out of the way, or position it so I gain a tiny bit of room. I will also have to cut a couple of sides off the battery tray, maybe even 3 sides. Not sure how weak that will make the final side holding the straps. I also plan on using velcro on the bottom of the tray and battery to help keep it from moving.

Please share your ideas and thank you!

I think I got it!

I cut out some of the trays sides, I left the part close to the drive shaft, and the front side, i removed the sides by the edge of the car and the one in the back to make room. I took out the ESC and its plate, I removed the ESC from the plate and drilled holes in it to mount it over the diff, I took out 2 diff screws out and mounted the plate with 2 longer screws ontop of the diff. I am not sure if I should have used the 4 screws... Anyway, I put velcro on the bottom of the tray and the battery and strapped it in tight. The ESC went over the plate with the sticky pad it came with, and I added a zip tie for extra measure. I ziptied the motor wires to the cable management thing to make sure they don't go anywhere, and i have double sided velcro that i looped around the battery to hold on to the wires.

Here is what I got now. Please advise me about the 2 screws if you can, and any red flags you may see. This is my first RC and I think I just graduated MacGyver school.

Wow, i was looking at the bags of spare parts then looked at the price, he is asking for too much but it got me thinking if I can find some cheaper used ones that come with parts! I wonder if he did mount his ESC on that carbon fiber plate. The body won't sit right all the way up front there, it would have to be right on top of the diff or further to the back. I wanted to offset mine to one side a bit to help balance weight and I couldn't it would rub against the body. It really has to be close to the center to fit right. I am starting to think that I should have mounted the plate with 4 screws rather than 2 on opposing corners but it feels sturdy for now.

I am dying to play with it outside but we had a snow storm recently and everything is covered. I don't want to put it through snow yet. I turned punch control down to the slowest setting to save my hardwood while I try to race around my house

I have a 44 inch spur and a 20 tooth pinion I want to put on soon once I play with factory teeth and get a good feel for the machine. I also already hate the controller and I want a new one.

That’s what I do...I hunt for cheap rollers and pats lots on eBay for spares and projects. This is a build I made from a HB D8 roller that I picked up on eBay a few months ago. All these parts on this build are compatible with a Vorza ...
i cut a piece of Kydex to use for an esc mount, much like that eBay listing....In order to make this body fit

There is a lot more room to place stuff with a new body! I had to place the ESC where it is to clear the body! I would like to have had it more to the side to offset the weight of my massive battery. I am waiting on worrying about balance till I get all my parts in. A new better servo will probably weigh more, so will the 20 tooth pinion when it goes on. I will install the castle creations pro bec behind the motor, that will add weight too. I am not sure if a Spectrum SRS6000 reciever is heavier but there is that too. I am not sure if wire weight is significant, but when all the lights are installed, and the the servo arm is replaced with metal it will balance out a little more. All of these little things together will add weight when I get them then I will try to balance the car. I have seen people use car wheel balance weights to even things out. There is not much room to move thins around at all without drilling holes, one thing i really don't want to do. If it comes to it, I will change the body to put the esc somewhere better.

I also want that skyrc corner balance system! I am so poor all of a sudden...
