Default 100mph Rustler vxl Project

Hello all i thought i would post some info on building a 100mph Rustler.. i started with a black chassis and add the mamba monster 2200kv "what a beast" then i add both front and back shock mounts "strc", integy Aluminum transmission using the stock vxl internal gear. I went with the big bore shocks mod to sit low, All arms are RPM i am not a big fan of aluminum only in some ares.. I will be updating as i go and posting pics If anyone has any Questions on this build please contact me

Update I installed spectrum dx3s full telemetry great radio ,has great option... Some tweaking with the rpm telemetry and it accurate... Also installed 34/34 mod1 gearing.. This thing is going to be insane I had it up on my work stand just to test out the telemetry motor of cours cool and hit 78 mph with only 2cell lipo 50c I could only imagine what my two 3cell max amps 150c are going to produce lol.... As soon as the weather breaks I can't wait to do a speed run with GPS and telemetry....

You hit 78mph on 2S?

According to this...

http://scriptasylum.com/rc_speed/top_speed.html

You will have a top speed of 231MPH on 6s with that setup. Please don't do that, you will destroy everything in your attempt. Run it on 3S, or change your gearing. But nevertheless, get a video.

WOW that would be nuts I would defenently distroy my car.... I think I'm going to stick with 3s there should be no problem with hitting a bit over 100 mph with this setup... Then off to the next project I think I'm going to do and BL e-revo 1/10 now that would be a chalange considering its not ment for crazy speeds like.. The problem I see off the bat is the wheels I wounded if they make steal belted tires for them with 17mm hubs or maybe Jaco foams... Hey but thank you for pointing this out to me I would hate to distroy my car.... I will post more pics and vids as I get them
