Even tho I'm looking into a T-SCTE,I cant say I agree 100% with traxxas not being very tunable. For the price I think their one of the best values out there.
But i want to get into the 4x4 seen,and the losi T-SCTE looks like a nice way to start. I always said I wouldn't race in 4x4 class,because the trucks are so easy to control.
But with all the power options out now,even the 4x4's can be quite a challenge, now i am getting more and more interested,but I still like to build my own truck,from the first, to the last screw and nut.
In my opinion there's no better way to run the truck you want on the track,when you know every screw and nut in it.

Default hey everyone

My name is Kelvin and i just recently purchased 2 traxxas rustlers. I live in sicily italy on a military base. Ive been here a year and havent seen anyone else over here into this hobby. Since theres no track me and my son just bash the cars. I built a 2 1/2 foot launch ramp that is crazy fun to launch the cars, but this breaks parts a lot. So far i have bent every stock shock in the rear, broke the rear shock towers and the rear gear housing where the arm connects. Well i hope to get some good advice and meet some good people on here. If anyone just wants to talk rc, hit me up, im really enjoying these toys.

Hi there, Sir Davies here, just got into the rc craze. I just bought myself a MJX F-645 helicopter and a HSP 1/10th Brontosaurus RTR Monstor truck. Now I have questions concerning this these two models.
First the helicopter:
How do I setup the swashplate settings so that the heli does not sway left or right during take off? Is there any video on youtube which could help me out?

Next the truck:
How do I pair the rc transmitter to the trucks receiver? I had tried different ways of my own and I think that I might have messed up the esc. If thats the case is there any way to reset it?

I hope you masters of the rc world could lend a new padavan like me some help. Thank you and may the force be with you...

I'm new here as well, great forum.

I've had a 25 year break from R/C - last thing I drove was a Kyosho Optima back in the 1980's......

Recently bought a Losi 22 (RTR) so all this talk of Lipos and sensored brushless motors is like another language.......but I'm learning fast!
