Default losi speed - t or any top speed addicts dream

just looking for a thread on the speed - t
the thread in off road is in the wrong place and i got hammered for using an old thread?
does any one else have a speed - t ?

i;ve had mine a few summers now and run it in a straight line for top speed only. i run 8000 mah 22c 3 cell lipo, and rear tires last about four charges. lol

what kind of top speeds has any body hit with any car on road?
i have triied the venom sensor but don;t think it;s acurate due to tire swell at high speed.

i have many losi vehicules and i guess this response for the speed t prooves why there is not too much hop ups for many of the losi vehicules ... only some from losi.
i'm disappointed buy the lack of aftermarket hop ups for losi speed t and strike.
pro-line has bodies and tires for hpi traxass and ae but no losi .

i had a bad start with my losi due to poor assembly.
but over all since i find it goes very well and is quite durable for the abuse high speed on ashpalt can do.
the speed t handles soo well i go back and forth on the road in front of my house , and because it's electric i can here traffic coming long ahead of time.

with my rs4 i need a parking lot free of traffic , straight seems to be optional, especiealy on turn arounds.

So then why didn't you try searching instead of opening a new thread to ask for someone to search for you since you wanna be a douche about it

soo ... that was not to fun ,

now let me start over and use different words slightly to try and save the thread. maybe

i was searching for a thread for speed t , or top speed but didn't find one.
sorry if this is a duplicate

does any body run thier cars ( any kind of car ) in a straight line for top speed? just to see how fast it can go, when you get tired of slowing down for the corners.
my venom speed sensor tells me 52 mph.
that was measured as the sensor passed the magnet or vise versa , but that was before tire swell from high speed and the magnet comes off the diff cup.
even with ca glue dried over night
i am going to get a gps sensor from a budy any day now ...

hey there thanks for checking out my vid.
with the new 4 pole 1406 motor from castle , this thing has become even more off a test of nerves! still triing to get the right amount of accel to get max speed before i run out off radio range so i haven't put the gps in yet,
but my last best was 63.0 mph ... before the this esc / motor.
