Is there going to be a tlr kit version of this truck by any chance? Sort of waiting about pulling the trigger. Thanks and any info would be great!

Now what I don't know is where the stock wheels fit into the mix. It could be the AKA wheels are fine and the DE wheels actually make the truck wider. Regardless, it doesn't seem like narrower would be better. The other thing I don't like about the AKA wheels is that they fit very loose on my wheel hexes. Where I have to actually press the DE wheels onto the hex when they are new, the AKA wheels slid right over the hex and kind of flop around until you tighten them down.
@jared.
Here's a user review, all based off the powerful Internet so do I really know which cyclone model he used... maybe PM him before you open your wheels.

I haven't been racing much, work/family/snowboarding lately but I've been want to feed the itch.

It all boils down to personal preference I guess.
Huh,
I thought you couldn't win unless you had the right aftermarket chassis?

Im going to start racing my scte this year and was wondering what battery size will help me race 8-10 min with stock chassis? I just havent bought any upgrades as of yet but will in future.

I have the tekin pro 4 4600 and the hobbywing esc.

I'd get a 6500mAH 2s pack, 40c or better.

Be careful with the 4600 pro4 according to these guys there is an epademic of bearing failures... you HAVE to run with an extra bearing to work properly. Ask RC*PHREAK he'll back me up on that..





umm ya no worries on the pro4, i'm just being wise.

If you want to go 10 min for a amain then a 6200 or bigger mah bat is what you want. I run a 6600 70 C and it gets me 12 min of racing. it sucks not to be able to finish a race

I was just looking at these, Boca Bearing has the sealed stainless version for $6.95 each. Also some with ceramic innards for $13.95. It looks like the rubber sealed ceramics are $15.95. Were you just looking for the rubber sealed bearings?

Maybe someday, but if it does come out, it will be a while. I dont feel its worth waiting for with the roller still available.

I have been running a pro4 4600 since before they were available. No bearing failures. I am not saying it won't happen but I would not shy away from the motor based on the failure of a few. this is by far the most popular motor for this truck to date.

The rollers and RTR's that are out for sale are the most up to date at this time.

Ryan, I should have been more informative. The reason I ask is because mine has been in storage for 6 months or so.


I am mainly curious about the diffs. I'm considering machining some inserts for them and having them hardcoated with some other components I'm doing on other projects. Unsure if that is the right approach right now. Especially if there is no more wear issues.

It's a great little truck you guys put out. Very fun!
