    Tamiya Off Road Buggies & Brushless motors?

    So this is probably a very noob question. But every time I see anyone with Tamiya buggies, they are always brushed. Why is this? Are Tamiya buggies unsuited for the power of a powerful brushless system? Also, I don't do organised racing, because another thought I had could be that they are...

    Team Energy A7X. Any thoughts?

    I have had my eyes on a Team Energy A7X. (Wait, that sounds like Team Associated.... Hmmmm >.>) I have used 1/10th scale RC's and smaller, but not anything bigger. Is this a good choice for a beginner? Why or Why not?

    Need help/advice

    I’m pretty new to RC cars. I played with them as a kid but they were just like the ones you get at Walmart. My 9 year old has shown interest in the hobby so I’m for sure going to support that. We’ve looked at different types and he really likes buggies. I’m looking for something we could both...

    Fuel Tank Modification

    I have a couple of Exceed 1/10 Nitro Buggies. I was wondering if anyone has ever come across or invented a gas tank lid that you could fill quickly like a one-way valve? I see that they make pressure guns to "inject" the fuel fast, but you still have to get to the lid and open it, from what I...

I read online that ball differentials have less play, and are generally better although require more maintenance as...
