Default Gonna do some racing!

Yeah...

I know, I need another addiction like I need another hole in my head, but that is beside the point. I got a great deal on a new SC6 kit built with a Maclan 17.5 and toro TS50 ESC. It's gonna be my race truck.

I plan to race once a month, just to have something to do with RC's besides bash, and need some guidance on how to get started, how some of you set your trucks up shock and suspension wise, and what a good, but affordable, TX/RX combo would be for this truck.

I got all this for 185 bucks.






Thanks in advance, all advice is appreciated.

stupid question, don't mean to hijack but since we're talking about venting holes, if you're running 1/8 e-buggy, vent holes? I always see them without.

this is 1/10 scale sct not 1/8.. .1/8 is way heavier than 1/10 right on the hi jack.

Buggys are very streamlined in comparison to SC trucks. The body acts like a parachute, and wants to hang the truck in the air. Buggys don't do that.

Putting a vent hole through the windshield like they recommended would only make that worse.

I think if I was gonna vent it, a hood vent might be better. Like the flow tech bodies. I suppose I could just buy a flow tech body instead.
