Default My 18R...just broke it...DOH!!

Just wrecked it. Damage includes a broken front tower, wheel, and body post.



Handles like its on rails though. Got out of my line of sight an went into the 22" tire of an SUV. I forget some times that from 50' away it looks like an ant. Especially with the body off, on fresh black top ...Exotec, my money is coming!!!

Specs are, E-Flite Park 370 5400kv motor, 2s 1800 MAH 25c lipo, Losi 22 tooth pinion(for MLST2), Hitec mini servo(not micro), and of course the awsome Exotek conversion. Going to throw the stock tower back on just to get it running again. This thing is like crak!!

Its all good though. This gives me an excuse to getthe titanium tie rod kit, bronze rims, and CVDs.

keep your old tower for extra carbon fiber, that will come in handy one day!

It,s a great motor for the 18R! I also have the same setup in my MiniLST2 which I have been running for over a year now with absolutly no issues. Plus, when you consider the price, it,s a no brainer!

As far as more torque, I have nothing to compare it to. I am so satisfied with the performance of this motor that I have not looked to any other motor since my purchase. It will rip the tires loose with no problem even with a 24 tooth pinion in there so I dont think torque is an issue.

It will do the same on the MLST2 but the KV is too low for the gearing but its still faster than the 2 stock motors that came with it

The shaft fist all the Losi, Associated, and RRP pinions with no issue.

Hope that helps!
