You can use NiMH, or get a round case lipo which looks like the old NiMH. I had both, the NiMH finally died and I haven't bothered replacing them. I bought a dual charger so can charge 2 batteries at...

A lot of radios will do it, the Flysky GT3C seems to be a popular choice and they're pretty cheap.

I ended up getting my son a Futaba 3PV as its quite a small radio and he has small hands. Its...

My go to for racers is either the Savox 1258TG (perferred if a standard size fits ok) or the 1251MG if I need a low profile servo. There are better out there, but these are fast and strong enough...

Check out the HTRC C240. Its a dual charger, 240w power, 10a charge rate, charge up to 6s batteries (I think, not looking at the specs right now). I bought 1 6 months ago as its cheap with great...

I have thought about this too, but would build a tennis court in the backyard (not this house, next house which should have enough land) and buy the lane barriers like many clubs use to make up a...

How much had you run the motor? You said its new, was the whole use a few short throttle blips? It may be faulty, I've had one that would start to spew out smoke after a few seconds, but if I just...

The XV01 is primarily a rally car, but there is a touring car version of it too. I don't have one but a lot of people rave about them. They are a lot more expensive than the TT02 though.

Yep 60amp is fine for a 17.5T touring car. I've heard a lot of different theories about how the ESC amps matter, but basically the ESC is a conduit, it doesnt push current into a motor or anything. A...

I'm in the same boat, the V4S isn't holding me back. The only reason for a new motor is for a new car, my son has now got a second car so I can either put a really old motor in it for him, or buy...

Do you run the V5R? Is it that much better than the V4S? They have the V4S for AUD80 vs AUD135 for the V5R - is it worth the extra?

Are they from the DF02 buggies? They look like it. I use them in my TT02B and just needed the diff housing from the DF02 and the outdrives, dogbones etc all worked fine with them. I just had to file...

Thanks for the feedback, Exotek it is. I run on asphalt or a weird carpet that isn't high grip so it should be perfect

I've seen a few people mention that the TB05 is a 'failed chassis' (mostly in the TC01 thread) which surprised me, so I thought I would ask the users. It looks like a great chassis to me, how do you...

Mine all run fine on grass as long as its been cut recently. I just run kit tyres and as long as the spikes are in ok condition they do fine. If the spikes wear down then they can just spin their...

Interesting, the only TT02SR I've seen are more expensive than the TB05 Pro or TA07 Pro. In my experience of them the TB and TA cars are far better than the TT cars and always the better option.

I like the Savox 1258TG as a great bang for buck servo. Been running them for a few years without issue. The only thing to watch is the BEC output - the servo is rated to 6v, no idea if 7.4v would...

The XV01 is a great option, especially when comparing them against a TT02SR or TT02RR, as the price difference will be minimal at that point. I've never had one but heard good things about them and...

I forgot about the receiver. I actually put mine on top of the servo. I know its better to have weight down low but they are small and light so I figured it would be ok up there. Then I have a fan...
