Default Brushless V1RRR WCE

The question isn't how. Fabrication isn't the issue, at least, not yet. Or maybe it is now I think about it. I'm guessing I could use the stock gearing? There are some new spurs/pinions I have laying around - I think I bought Kyosho's whole gear range for the RRR WCE.

What size motor would I use? And how about gearing? My math isn't on par for a gear ratio chart. Single speed obviously.

This holiday season I've been looking at buying a new car (off-road) but my poor WCE has two days of racing on it, if that. maybe a little project is needed...

???

Were you answering someone? I didn't understand your post...

If you're talking about off-road, you should post it in the off-road section?

Just a suggestion...

Hahaha, no! I should have made myself more clear, as I was excited, during the start of my thread.

I want to convert my Kyosho V1RRR WCE to brushless!

Curious .... Why convert an RRR to brushless when 1/10 scale onroads already exist? I see the appeal for 1/8 scale buggy, truggy and on road....

Anyways, different strokes for different folks.. It's a hobby and a project right ?

you'll need to figure out your final drive ratio and match that with a motors specs. For instance I have a Novak 3.5 GTB velocity, and Novak advises final drive greater than 9.5. If you go with an 8.5 motor than you can go lower etc.

Kyosho just released the EP Fazer series which are 200 mm electric TC cars. You can also run 190 mm with + offset wheels to get to 200 mm..

Raman, also, I've been a nitro guy since '99 and haven't raced since '06. Call me ignorant, I have no clue what's going on these days other than brushless.

Plus, this car just sits, it's a shame. It probably isn't worth a dime as it's two generations old. Plus I have all the Kyosho upgrades for it still in package. It's just a waste.

But, I'm tired of getting greased up and cleaning grime. Not that it goes away, but electric was so much cleaner.

I wish Mugen would make one. While Kyosho makes winners, there's something about the plastic/nylon composite (?) I don't like. If I remember correctly, my MTX3 was entirely nylon composite, or at least felt stiffer/sturdier. Down to the linkages...

Anyway, guess I should go now.
