I'm not sure what everyone is bleating on about tbh. Running non boost wrecks your motors faster cos you have to gear the nuts off them. Boost isn't hard to set up really is it? Once you have a...

I think the capacitor farad and voltage rating is tuned to each speedo and application, ie, 2s or 1s. So I would just get a new set of identical caps and replace the old ones like for like. Thats the...

Well the cap will help to keep a steady and constant in voltage to the speedo, I think the main purpose is to stop them overheating. But like you said I'm sure they give you a fair amount of punch as...

Have you tried a factory reset? That'd be first on my list, then run the car in mode 9. It's a known quantity (control) so that should tell you if the speedo is to blame or not.

If thats ok and...

Good point, but some people on here must be using the roche axles and I don't hear them having the same problem. So they are doing something different to me and I'd like to know what.

I've just installed the Roche lightweight axles and they seem to be a bit long, as in they push the bones towards the centre of the car. This...

Go for Deans connectors, you can buy LIPO's with deans already fitted so that makes it nice and easy for you should you want to upgrade your battery. Like the others said, if you get a LIPO cut...

20 mins sounds like a fair run time to me. But if the motor/esc isn't hot yet the batt is, I'd say the batt is a bit dodgy. Is it running tamiya bullet connectors? If yes then get those changed out...

Hhhmmm I wait to be corrected but not sure how it would smoke your ESC. Nominal voltage is only 0.2V higher. You might smoke the LIPO as I'm guessing the ESC won't have a low voltage cut off. But I...

That run time doesn't sound too disastrous, although with it being a drift car the loads are quite low so I guess you could expect it to last longer than that.

But like I say, its not drasticly...

I suppose if you know the correction factor for your station then that is slightly better (i.e. you know when the station says 2 degrees it is actually 1.5 etc)
