+100 The TT seems a bit lighter and more nimble than the SC. My 6.5 is more than enough for this truggy and it hauls. Temps in the 150-160. With heatsink and fan= 130's. Time to play with timing advance.

saladFork,

It's a ton better than the SC in that dept. It does nose down just a touch, and I mean just a touch. With that said, you can manipulate the truck how you see fit in the air. It reacts to throttle and brakes just fine. Of course if you screw up off the face, your screwed. No amount of throttle will bring it back. That vid was literally the VERY first run with this thing. It turns great on power and pushes a bit off power. I've come to the conclusion that a 6.5-8.5 550 on 3 cell would be the ticket for this truck. To bad that wont fly for racing. But I'll tell you what, it would be absolutely perfect for this thing.

nice to know that the temps will be that low with a heatsink on. i just bought one and now i might gear up a tooth or 2

According to their website the e-roller is all they have had in stock. I hope i'm not getting jerked around. I was counting on having it for races this weekend but have lost hope in that.

Crazy, but my tt is as fast with the gtb speedo than with the mmpro with timing (22 degrees) and temps are around 100 (150 on mmpro with timing after 5 minutes) with the 6.5. Though in the sc with 13.5 the timing really hits in and makes it faster than the gtb. I guess mmpro isn't a good mod esc. And no ext bec needed with 13.5, though the gtb needs a glitch buster with the savox servo in the tt.

I put the gtb behind the motor, perfect level flight without nose diving, a much better driving feeling. I think the smaller the speedo the better for this car and easier for weight distribution.

Hey guys I have a question regarding MY PERSONAL DRIVING STYLE

I currently dominate with my Hyper10sc which is really heavy with losi 8-ight big bores and 550 motor combined with RX8 pushing 3s of power!

Anyways, I love the way the truck behaves since I upgraded to 550 on 3s. The weight / power ratio is just insane.

I used to drive that truck with a 540(6100kv, 11t) on 2s and I was never 1st... Maybe because it was too light or not enough power?? who knows...

Now time to build my TTe

and I was thinking about the same setup

550 + 3s low gearing for optimzed weight / power ratio and low temps

but this is the part that is getting me confused
Since I will run on 3s with low gearing this gives me very low temps... Should I use the RS-Pro instead of that big RX8?? I also wanted to drive with the motor like the picture below.... but the 550 motor will not fit with this setup.... 3s is not an option its a must

Any one can help me?

im not sure if your going to feel the timming boost hit as hard in the TT compaired to a 2wd sc. on the TT you have more drag on it and it seems like your mmpro has to try to work harder to get it up to speed for some reason. i know afew guys here are running the mmpro but they are running with a castle motor. That is strange you have to have the glitch buster on the gtb with that servo. i have had the gtb before and never put one on.

i will try my esc behind the motor since i have a lrp sxx and it has a smaller footprint

i dont see how you can get the motor like you have it in your sc on the TT. you would have to move the batt box and have to drill holes for it along with the hole for the mount. the way the TT sits for me is really nice. If the RS-Pro will work with a 550 motor i would use that since it will be lighter and the footprint will be way smaller. You can also try a 6.5 or lower with the 3s hooked up to see how it is for your driving style. For me a 3s will be insane with a 6.5 motor. i hold right with 8th scale buggies all the time with just a 2s so im sure a 3s will be nuts

I appreciate your feedback, Although 3s is not as nuts as 2s I dont go faster because I run 3s.. I just run 3s to keep temps low... And I love to torque and the consistancy of 3s

very true on the 3s. i run truggy also and run a 4s batt and im thinking of doing a nice 3s instead for it because with a 4s the truggy likes to pull wheelies on the straight lol

I think the savox are known for being power hungry, never had a prob with the gtb otherwise the last 2-3 years (touring car before), and the glitch buster is not a big deal, but i had a power hole after 10 minutes running.
My gtb just surpasses the chassis a little bit at the rear diagonal edge.
