Default U-Force 50/75 Firmware Update to Version 4.

Hi Guys/Gals,

Anyone interested in updateing your Schultze 50/75 ESC to version 4. Version 4 has more amps/voltage control on ESC to prevent it from overheating.

Im charging $20 for the Firmware Upgrade for all 50/75 users. Kindly contact me at: 9696 1893 for an appointment.

Cheers...
Loh.

Anyone care to suggest what stock motor would be best suited for the track seen in this video (http://www.bigslicksoftware.com/down...ookieSedan.wmv)

I am currently trying to decide between one of the following Epic based motors:

ROAR
Monster
P2K2

I will probably go with Team Brood or Team EA Motorsports but welcome other suggestions on this aspect as well. Thanks!

James

Hey James, I would sugest a Monster based stock motor for a track that size. I would also gear in the 25.5mm roll out to start. Good luck and watch out for Larry

being that the track is as small ans windy as it is I would say go with a P2K2 PRO they are full of torque and perfect on small tracks

the Monster is a middle of the range motor high rpm less torque then the P2K2 and the Roar has even more rpm and less torque then the monster

27mm + rollout

Default My vegas ride

What do you guys think of my Race ready 19T for vegas? Any helpful hints anyone can provide for my car?

Finally got her under weight, comes race ready at 1435grams, just 10 grams under, think I will add a motor fan. with a stock it is close to 30 grams light. . Took some work but got it handled. Took it up to Gilroy's carpet track for some practice the other day and she handled awesome!! Can't wait for the race. Thanks in advance for any input.

Cant go wrong with either the Reedy Quad Mag Motor or the Trinity Chamelon, all motor turners use these as base motors. Just be sure to get the dyno'd ones.

One last note on your car, be sure to change out the front spindles, other wise your gonna have issues later on down the line. Get the spring steel ones ASAP!

James, I would like to second Tag's suggestion to go with a Monster. It's simply more versatile and easier to gear properly. The P2K2 is a good motor, but not as easy to find the proper gearing for. Also, P2K2s have a tendency to fall out early on the straightaway compared to Monsters even when geared properly.

Yea get the front spring steel axles and a P-Dub front bumper and A carbon fiber motor guard to help protect the endbell.

Everything else looks great. Nice wiring job. I am Jealous.

Thanks, I just got done with the wiring and I really like how it turned out. I do have the P-dub bumper and CF Motor guard but didn't like the wieght of it for this race, I willl for sure put it back on for the outdoor racing though. The spring steel axles I forgot all about, thanks, will get on my list for sure!! Thanks for the comments, keep um' coming.

As for the motor questions, go with the monster, very rounded motor, good at almost all situations.

Please elaborate.. The P-Dub bumper is lighter than the stock one and the CF Motor guard is very, very light.

The P-dub is heavier than the stock one by almost double. The motor guard will more than likely go back with a fan mounted to it as well since that is the corner of the car that will need some weight.

Is that where you normally keep your transponder. It seems like if you take one good shot or if you tag a board with that side your transponder might just be done. Ive seen many guys mount them under the bumper, I personally just put it atop the servo and I havent had a problem with it.
