One thing I'm noticing though is after a good crash the steering will shift one way. I can then shift it back manually and something makes a clicking noise as it's shifted back. I thought it was my servo arm skipping but that checks fine. So then I tightened my servo saver and it still happens??
Anyone else having this steering issue?

Most all of the parts will be in stock at places that ordered them in come the end of this month. Our warehouses are nearly fully stocked now as well so we should not run into an issue again.

Any idea when the diff housings will be in stock? Sucks for those of us with stripped diff cases that we have to basically stop racing until we can get replacements.

For those who have used the HPI Z449 screws, anyone selling longer screws than the Z449?

It sounds alot like my venom pro.120A sensored/sensorless. But I think that is taking a pooh on me. With my 8.5 it just had no snap at all anymore. Put in my RS and the motor came back to life. I will be bumbed if my speedo took a crap because that was a rock solid reliable speedo.

2100kv 1/8th scale system? Yes you can without any problems. The only issue is some tracks make you race only on 2s, whereas a large can motor like a 2100kv will require a 3s to have any top end at all. It also makes your truck quite heavy. This isn't always a bad thing. On a loose track, the extra weight may help with stability at slower speeds. I'm running an 1/8th scale system and the advantage is gobs of torque and no overheating problems which some of the smaller systems have had issues with. But be warned, if your track only allows 2s, then an 1/8th scale system is a three legged dog on the straights, no offense to any 3-legged dogs out there Lastly, 1/8th scale esc's don't seem to care what servo you use, but some of the 1/10th scale esc's have had to use external BEC's or Glitchbusters when used with digital or high powered servos. If you decide to run an 1/8th scale system you'll have to cut off the little plastic motor cradle with a Dremel tool.

What's your gearing at?? I'm sorry to say, but this sounds too good to be true. I have a 6500 mAh lipo and I'm getting about 12 minutes...if the planets are aligned correctly.

I'm running a 14t pinion with the Havok sc pro and coming off at about 145 and can easily make a 10 min. main with a 5600mah lipo. I see guys running 18-20t pinions???
I received my pins today, but no gears . My gears are shot, I mentioned it when I called about the pins and was told I would receive gears as well. I had one of the very first Retail trucks and my pins were worn half way through before the hot topic became non hardened pins. The gears running wobbly led to premature wear and failure.

There are many benefits to sensorless and 4 pole. The reason racers don't like them is the inconsistancy. The motor does not alway do the same thing lap after lap so there is always a little bit of a guessing game in timing jumps and braking points. It is subtil but the better a driver you are the more you notice it. This is the reason sensored prevails for most racing.

I've tried to explain this to alot of guys at my home track that are good
drivers but have consistancy problems and it's like talking to a wall

Most people think you buy the cheapest little box you can stick in your
car/truck and it will drive just like a good ESC...

Theres alot of racers out there at all tracks I travel to that if they ran good
ESC's instead of junk they would blister the track.... Go figure?
