Itís a discontinued model from Hangar 9. I cut it down a little but itís nice and short and had holes for 2 mil hardware. You can still find them, and the Futaba one seems easier to find, but the 23t...

The least expensive that Iím aware of is the non sensored Hobbywing Max10. LC also rebrand this ESC and sell it simply as the Max10 RTR ESC. During LC12 testing this was one of the main ESCís used....

With any digital servo and HW ESC you should have zero issues using SHR. Agree with the above commenter, there is zero point in using normal mode with a radio like an M17.

Is there a "new" normal...

Haven't owned the EMB-1 but I did have the truggy that I bought as an ARTR because I had a remote already. I wasn't ready to build a kit at the time and I don't regret the decision. The assembled...

Never lost one, but when I have an item I know I might need more of I buy two just to make the shipping worth it. Sometimes I'll even tack on items that I know will wear soon or at least eventually....

Afaik, and from what I recall when I owned my DB, it uses a completely different bell crank/servo saver setup from the truggy or the buggy. You may be out of luck unfortunately. You could always try...

For in the house, I think the 1/24 scale micros is probably a better bet than a 1/14 mini like the LC Racing cars.

Billy posted the link up to get the rally kit direct from Carisma and that's a...

Yes, thank you for mentioning the dry fit first. Absolutely check it dry, but if I understood correctly I believe Strode has done that. Not a bad idea to check without the O ring/shim and the...

Strodedawg, the only thing I can think that would cause that to happen is the the pins are not keyed in together, or a manufacturer defect in the case, causing either the bottom gear to sit too high,...

The wet sanding is definitely not something done at the factory, but it's a well known trick to get a better seal on the diffs. Most of the time, that is where your leaks will happen. A bead of black...

That number comes from the kit instructions, so it's a reference measurement that you follow when building the kit. You dont have to take the car part to measure every time. Get it set to 7mm once,...

The wrench that comes with the LC's is a royal PITA to use for any real adjustments. Just use a real 7mm open wrench. Much easier thing to use if you dont want to pull the slipper out every time or...

Not really. I get them inserted in straight and then just press them in using a table as something to get some leverage on and push down on the metal block part.

Sounds like there's definitely some rationale behind it then! I was just curious. Wasn't trying to roast you or anything.

The Mini 8ights are setup like that, I just never considered it in the LC.

Ah. Yes, the 225 is certainly not the same as a 65mg. They get decent reviews, but Iíve never used one.

Yes, those are the correct specs for the 135f.

The 65mg is a micro sized servo, and has only about 30 oz.- inch of torque at 6 volts. Itís also to small even for the stock mounts. Completely defeats the purpose of using the floating mount and is...
