Only the electronics part. I also added a couple of modifications on the brake circuit, LEDs, ESC and actuator driver.

Great pics, folks! Once I hit 20, I'll post up some pics of my heavily modded SC18. Will wait until I swap out the chassis with the FT CF and install the new HobbyWing 25C/Tacon 7800kv combo. If you're interested in a list of parts I've upgraded, check out my first thread here on RCTech. Glad to be back into the RC game!

I have the same motor combo in my T2, but its an ez-run 7800 motor.

cweb,

How is that working out for you? I figure since I do most of my driving on the street or flat, hard surfaces, the 7800kv wouldn't be a bad combination. I am looking at getting the 5300kv for the days I am out driving on dirt tracks. My plan is to use either a 13t or 14t pinion with a 58t/59t spur to help tone things down a bit and keep things running cool. Thoughts based upon your experience with the eZRun, which is similar to the Tacon?

Chris

Man that thing is TINY!!! Makes me ponder how small these vehicles will become as nano-technology progresses. We could see RC vehicles the size of MicroMachines! LOL! Can you imagine a vehicle this small doing 10 miles an hour or more? Man, chasing your pets around the house will be so much easier at that size; able to avoid most obstacles or reach where your cat or dog tries to hide! I am soooo mean.

Integy

*note: Integy is known for junk parts and crappy service, although I am going to give these a try as well as the one's by FullForce RC. Another brand's broke on my first run: one on the rear-left and the other the front-right. Was not happy! So, whichever set I keep, the other goes to the nephew.

FullForce RC

18R007X Rally Aluminum front or rear a-arm set (2 sets on order)
SC18070 Rubber sealed bearing set (for spare set, on order)

Right now I am using 2 NRG 2s1p 2500mah Lipo batteries. Even though they're made for Futaba receivers, they seem to be performing rather well. I eventually want to upgrade to a 2s1p 25C but haven't found any that will fit without cramping the battery tray. Maybe the CF chassis will allow for more room.

My shocks are set up with 55w/Gold Springs in the front and 25w/Blue Springs in the rear. Using the 2-hole pistons that come with the 3racing set. The FT anti-roll bars are doing a great job keeping things stable when turning sharp corners with speed.

So far, I've had minor issues with belt tension. After about 5 runs everything seemed to run smooth. I do however have a front gear box on the way from AE. Great support!!! I love this car, although the ride height isn't the greatest. Runs best on flat services. I do have an extra set of 3racing and FT long shocks for those times when I want to bash through some rough terrain. Although the car isn't perfect, I very pleased with the performance of this little beast. Love taking it for short drives while on my breaks and lunch at work.

Here are some photos of my work in progress...

I didn't include pics of the body since it's just a stock black one (my nephew wanted the blue/white that came with my brushless version instead of his black one).

Pics of my charging station...kitchen counter that is! Yeah, I paid WAY too much for my charger, but it's a pretty green at least!

Sorry for the delay. I haven't had time to run my T2 outside cause of weather, but the ez-run 7800 is very fast, thats judging by the small spurts iv'e been able to do inside. AE says they suggest using the FT slipper assembly if you run over 5 kv. I dialed down my throttle endpoint to 85, I may need to go down to 80. gearing is 11/60 but untested , not going to be able to race for 2 weeks so I can't say what kinda temps im gonna get till then.

So is there a difference between the stock slipper and the FT then? Also, what is the best way to mount the Tacon to the FT CF chassis? I am still trying to figure this one out. Thanks for your help!

Chris :O)
