I used to run the big S car, but I go back to Mongoose because it is just more comfortable to drive. people choose car not only base on what they drive well, sometime the reputable and parts supply count

still I like G4

I still like my Mongoose, it was easy to build for a first timer in building a nitro kit, my son who will be racing the mongoose I gave'em this year, I got me a Kyosho RRR WC which was harder kit to build considering it was my second nitro kit, also in my opinion Kyosho is a better kit people that had mongooses are faster with Kyosho

Default RDLOGICS ARM SET

I am ordering parts for the upcoming season and have a question.
Does the Arm Set listed on RDLOGICS site (#502305) include both upper and lower arms left/right?

Anyone know what the chassis weighs, minus engine, dry?
Can these be converted to single-speed?

I'd like to experiment with one, like how we do our .21 engined, single-speed, 26T/37T geared HPI Racer 2's and see what it would do top speed.....

Smile which servo.... ??

Hi all.

I've recently purchased a RDLogics Mongoose and it's almost fully assembled, but the problem I'm having is, I assumed I could use the servos off my Monster GT truck. However, when I tried to install it, I discovered it will not fit well. Apparently the server is too big/tall (the servo arm sticks out too much and the steering linkage is hitting the frame). Someone recommended to me that I look into a low profile servo. I looked around the internet some and it seems the low profile servos aren't very fast on response times.

Has anyone else had trouble fitting a standard size servo into their Mongoose?? Can anyone recommend a decent low profile servo? I'm not sure
how many Oz's of torque is recommended for my car so I'm having trouble determining the right servo for me. Do they make a metal gear, high speed (perferrable a .08 - .11/sec) low profile servo?? All the ones i've seen that claims to be high speed are .15 or .18/sec. I was hoping to find something better.

Anyways.. was hoping someone may have some good recommedations for me

If you space the servo forward about 2 or 3mm and then install teh ball for the steering link on to teh back of teh servo arm instead of teh front it will all fit and work perfectly

The Mongoose to partial G4S upgrade kit has been released. See G4S thread. We should have them in a couple weeks.

Guys, I need the 3 weight/shoes that go on the 30mm Centax Clutch on the Mongoose, but I can't find them anywhere, I did find those 3 shoes for the 30mm NTC3 Centax Clutch though, and they look identical, anyone know if those NTC3 centax clutch shoes work on the Mongoose Centax?

well i bought a new mongoose, except for having to shim the servo and reverse the ball it went together sweet. couldnt believe how fast it is with a little OS12. Took it to the track to set it up and couldnt believe the cornering diffrence between it and my old reflex. just dont see how an upgrade kit could make it any better. Best handling car ive driven so far.
