No, I don't want to use an external BEC. I just don't want the clutter and complication if it can be avoided. Same goes for a plug and play glitch buster.

Last time I used a CCBEC was to enable an...

Trying to decide what servo spec is good for the DB Pro.

Is 200 oz-in torque plenty? Would I notice a difference going up to 300 oz-in at the expense of speed?

As a point of comparison for the...

ESC and motor temps still good with 3S 20T? Do you think 20T might actually be too much gear? I definitely don't need over 40 MPH on this rig.

I had fairly low expectations for it but got it anyway and am glad I did! I am actually having more fun with this simple R/C than my Losi Micro SCT indoors due to the smaller size. Drives good,...

When the 5B Flux came out I thought it was about time! Turns out the market, at least here in the US, was still not ready for it. It didn't seem to take very long for 1/8 scales to go from one-off...
