I just wanted to update this post. I picked up a Protek 7.6 LiHV 120C 4100mAh shorty pack, and slid the battery mounts in to the other mounting locations. Have to say, this is the way to go- much...

Iíll second that! Iíve had a similar problem myself, and ordered a couple extra screw kits just to have some extras. I searched high and low with no luck. My best advice is to use loctite on all of...

You bet! Iíve heard the chain drive sound really cool in a retro kind of way. The max battery is roughly 139x25x47mm. Itís been a little difficult finding just the right fit, but thereís options out...

Iím using the belt. From reading a lot of user feedback, it seems the consensus is that the chain is more for nostalgia, and/or a less powerful brushed setup. The chain also requires adjusting as it...

I have a Castle Sidewinder 4 with the 1410 series 3800kv motor. Excellent combo with 2s lipo, although 3s is too much in my opinion.

not too sure about that. I have the Optima only. The tech/ sales people at AKA are great though. Give them a call and theyíll help you find what you need.

I donít see why the AKA Evo wheels wouldnít fit. I have them on my Optima. The only difference is that the front wheels are a bit narrower, as compared to the stock wheels which are the same width...

Just curious, do you recommend stiffer springs, or a higher viscosity oil for the shocks? I like the way the car handles with the stock setup and don’t want to mess with things too much. Going stupid...

You’re absolutely right! I just measured the motor and it’s sticking out about 14mm! Like I said, kind of a new back to the hobby, and I just went with the recommendation of the tech/sales rep at...

It’s actually a 540 can (i think?). The picture got stretched or something. It’s a castle 1410 series motor, 3800kv. I didn’t really know what to get, and that was what their tech support...

Thanks for the reply! Iíll try backing off the slipper a tad and see if that helps. In all honesty, the only time the wheelies were an issue was when I was running a 3s battery, which is totally...

I used the AKA 2.2Ē Evo wheels with the chainlinks they offer for clay tracks. I imagine there are other dirt tire options as well. The only catch is that the front wheels are a bit narrower due to...

Sure- it’s diff/final (internal pinion) * counter gear/counter pinion * spur gear/motor pinion. So with the optional 51t spur and say a 31t pinion, the equation would look like this: (53/32) *...

Solved it, I think...

diff/final pinion (53/32) * counter/counter pinion (48/21) * spur/pinion (61/25). So that comes out to 9.237. Call it 9.24. I didn’t realize that I needed to divide the...

One vote for the Castle Sidewinder 4 with the 1410 series motor, 3800kv. I recently put this in a re release Kyosho Optima and it’s definitely more than enough power. The price point was good too,...
