Seriously cool of you Yeti. I though of doing it myself, but I don't have the BBs or springs to measure.

Hey Guys,

I have a little news to share. The bad news is that I have decided to quit selling the bare aluminum chassis plates. The good news is that I have dropped the price on the hard anodized version to $30.

You can find them on my new web site: www.ape-rc.com

Thanks,


Chris

I picked up this roller and a hpi e-savige for only $250 and the body had been painted with regular red spray paint so I took to it, bending and scratching it up with a coarse wire wool and hit it with a few backing colors. It's not much and it'll be interesting seeing how long it lasts but my kids love it.
I talked my mate who I sold the Merv, to give me back the gladiator wheels, the mamba max pro along with the 5700kv 1406 motor. He still owe's me some money for merv and I've given him the E-savage so he was quite happy to be putting the stock electronic's back in merv to help stop him from breaking parts.

Electronics
Castle Creations Mamba Max Pro Esc - Waterproof
" " 1406 5700kv motor
Spectrum SR300 -Waterproof
The servo upfront is stock and will stay there until it die's, when I have to take it out I'll waterproof that too.
I plan on running 2s2p 4400mah nano's for the boy's and 3s 2650mah nano's for me.

My question to all out there that have experience with this sct is,
If Kyosho parts seem to be more expensive than other brands, does this mean they are strong and it's not necessary to hop it up???
I've been on a web site creating a shopping list that's come to some total for this model, is it worth up grading parts like knuckles, steering, lunsford rods ect???

it looks to be a rtr truck the first thing i would upgrade would be the plastic shocks, see if you can find a set of velvets or if you wanna spend the money big bores, then i'd upgrade the drive train ie: get the cvd set up instead of the dog bones all the other parts should hold up,also looks as though some slipper parts may be missing.

theres nothing wrong with that truck, look at the front bumper its not even tweaked and thats usually a given on a kyosho sc. the chassis and the plastic all looks to be in good shape. if you end up not wanting it pm me

Hi, I'm new to this SC game. I bought a RTR Ultima SC that I upgraded with Kyosho BB shocks, Ti turnbuckles, ball diff, a Flotek body and of course a BL system, a good servo and my usual radio gear.

Here is my question: what rims do you use with your SC-R?
I bought some Trinidad by DE Racing because I wanted white rims, but their offset make them too wide, the tire is rubbing on the body
I know that the stock wheels aren't good because of their internal shape.
I'm looking for the correct offset wheel, available in white if possible.

Thanks!
