well first i tested out 2 motors...
the gh4700 with 16/45 gearing
the gh3600 with 19/45 gearing
well the gh3600 came out on top.. much faster and cooler than the gh4700
the truggy handled everything well.. my only complaints.. those damn droop limiters.. these things are great for carpet racers but for those wanting to go real offroading,, you need the droop limiters cut off.. that way if a section of the track is a lil too rough then the front end wont face plant into the terra firma,, also it will help keep front end traction to the ground when you are shooting down the straights..
the shock oil will need to be changed to something a lil heavier... also there is a section of the track where the buggy had a hard time goin over.. i would have to punch it so the front wheels would be slightly lifted to prevent any froward flips.. the truggy hadles it with ease.... just as fast as a 10th scale truck would
tires/wheels... half8th ST
they worked out great.. good clearance. and looked every bit the part.. only problem there isnt a great deal of usable traction at certain points of the track,, i will have to treat these tires for sure.. i hope proline comes out with some truggy crime fighters.. then that would be great..
servo of choice is the hitec 625mg..
overall i love this lil thing... not as much as the buggy... but i did spend 2 months of continuos practice and trying different things out before i mastered the performance of the car.. and i think this truggy will need less time but will still need some time on the track to perfect everything
