Default best s**t box :D open to opinions :D

ok rc tech fans we need all you to give us 2 blokes a hand

we decided to get the shitest raceable onroad electric car and race against
all the stock drivers in our club. we have decided to show all the other drivers you dont need a high performance, over priced, bling bling rc car just to be competitive

weve come up with a list of cars that would be suitable for this test. we only have 2 cars up for grabs (tt01 & tspec) and might i add, they need alot of work hahah

- tt01 or tb02
- trinty t-spec
- smartech *electric*
- tc3 or tc4
- gv electric

so here we have it, we have our list, we have also thought about what kind of hop - ups would you rc fans suggest to get the car up to compitive level to keep up with all the 17.5 brushless motors. also might i add we are goign to run brushed as that is al we have.

so give us feedback guys


and remember guys . .. . . this is just for fun and a laugh and hopefully some suprises

Uh, the TB02, TC3, and TC4 are all very capable cars for stock racing and can still hang with pretty much anything. Not much of a shocker there.

I guess I'd go with the TT-01 if you keep the gear diffs, fixed arms, and friction shocks. Put a 27T in there and if you're a solid upper-level driver you'll get the effect you're after.

eerie.... I have been putting something like this together as well. But taking to the next level with low buck electronics and perhaps an old RTR transmitter, etc.

Good idea.

this kid just started the hobby early summer season at our assphalt club. he had this $hitty XXX-s, the car had never seena tweak station and he used stick pack 3300 NI-MH packs. Good tires, good motor and body, everything else was junk.

Im an OK driver and all my gear is MAXED the f--- out. Early in the season it was a joke, like watching a crash derby. Then He was 1 lap behind me towards the end of the season, i coulnd't beleive it.

The winning driver in stock at our club last season drove a xxxs and it wasn't me. My car was much more expensive than his.

I was leaning toward an old Traxxas xl1 speedo, Traxxas radio and some ofna servo out of a ready to run LD3.

You want to be overwhelmed by options and ideas for a speedo? Check this link. They're sorted low to high on the wallet scale.

We're just gunna use an LRP QC2 (It's just been sitting in my box of old stuff gathering dust). It would probably be more of a hassle running budget electronics seeing as we already have everything, otherwise that would be a good idea.
I think as long as we get decent straight line speed we'll be fairly competitive, handling never really seemed much of a big thing in stock when i ran it.

go to the LHS and ask to have a look at an HPI E10 (drift or touring, both are the same chassis).

it is the WORST TC ever made. But I don't think it would take a 17.5 brushless motor. Mine shredded at the sight of a 19t brushed motor.

NO tuning options. HUGE amounts of chassis flex. You might just be able to get one round the track, and for $50 or whatever for a roller its worth a shot!

Redcat Lightning-EPX, One of the most godaweful RC 1/10 touring cars I've ever seen race. Everything in it is all junk. The guy racing it tried geared it up a little, and ended up frying the motor and ESC.

And all for 100$.

Good luck...
