Default Speed Runs

Hi guys,

wanna try something new. After bashing with my Durango's DEX 408V2 I wanna try some speedruns. I already have an XO-1 and I just ordered a castle XL2. Would the XO-1 be the best bet for speed runs or are there better options out there?

It wouldn't be possible to fit that monster XL2 in a 10th scale right ?

You could prob get the xl2 in a 1/10 scale. I use a tc4 for speed runs and a top fuel rail dragster(xl2). Never cared much for my xo-1 it pulled to the left constantly.. good luck. check out Fastrc,com

For speed runs on the street a ⅛ on road is hard to beat. They are aerodynamic and you can fit a lot of motor in one.

you do not need that much esc for a 1/10 car.

Certainly, but probably not without considerable modification or moving of components.

no i run a mamba monster in my tc4, I was looking though. You could make a top deck for the tub chassis and mount the esc on it. would be easy. I do like the mamba xl for the data logging feature. comes in handy in speed running. If you pick up a tc4 let me know if you have any questions.

Thanks! I will definitely let you know when I pick one up :-) And then I can figure out how to make that top deck for the ESC ;-)

Whats the difference between the TC4 and the TC6.1/6.2 though?

The tc4 is a casual tub chassis, and the tc5/6 series is the hardcore racer series. If running on anything but a track do t get the tc6. You will quickly destroy the chassis on the tc6 on road asphalt.
