Talking RC10 B2- Help the Newb!


I just bought a RC10 B2 from a dude on E-Bay. I am new to the R/C arena, so be nice to the newb. Any help would be appreciated. The car is coming without the electrics, but does have a motor. What are some options for putting in a modified motor in this unit? I see all these killer power plants in the mags, and want to know if they will fit. My first R/C car was a Grasshopper years ago, and things have changed quit a bit! I have a T-Maxx tight now, but I want to get into electrics because we have a racing league that is starting in our area.

What would you recommend for an inexpensive radio and speed contoller? The vehicle is stock, what are some mods that I should concentrate on, and where can I find them? I would appreciate any direction or help from you guys, even some web sites would be great!

Thanks man!,

You should have posted this in the offraod forums and i'm sure it will be moved there soon but since I raced a B2 for a while I will help you out some. If I remember correctly, the B2 didnt come with CVDs or titanium turnbuckels so I would get those. Also change the front caster blocks to 25deg. The T3/B3 ones wont work but the GT ones will.
For motor, sttick to like a good stock until you get used to how quick electric buggies react. After that I would go with a Reedy Ti 12 dbl or triple for mod racing. Gear it 20/81 and you should be set.
