    Traxxas Sledge

    Hi all, I'm new to the whole RC game, I've just purchased a HYPER GO (H16DR). And it's wicked fun so far (Obviously a lower end little guy, but good entry level so far). However, I'm contemplating getting a larger model cuz...bigger is better :). I am considering the Traxxas Sledge, however as...

    Traxxas X maxx Problem

    I have reassembled the truck a handful of times trying to find the problem. The truck makes loud clicking noises and does not always move forward even though the motor spins and the pinion gear is on tight.. Thought maybe before I take it in to a shop I could try asking on this Forum for help...

    Hpi savage E conversion build

    I'm converting my nitro savage to electric. I still enjoy nitro but I'd rather have a simpler system for this type of vehicle. Thus far i've taken my transmission off. I needed to as the nitro version includes a OWB as seen in the first photo ( the middle one with an arrow pointed at it ) After...

    anyone know much about the OFNA NEXX 10sc

    I see one for sale for 80CAD I'm just curious if they're any good and what do previous owner think of it. Also can you buy spare parts from knockoff brands since OFNA isn't really a brand anymore. the photo is one i took off the internet not the one i saw

    Good Deal? (Slash)

    I definitely was not looking at RC cars on Facebook marketplace when I found what seems like it may be a good deal. $100 for this Traxxas Slash (it’s 2wd, probably brushed) along with a charger, a power cell 3000 battery, a 5000mah battery, and some spare parts. Supposedly it works and runs...

    Is the WLtoys a959b worth it?

    In my opinion, yes. Here are my thoughts after a few weeks of ownership. • Fast! Clocked it at 37mph but probably could get a couple more out of it • Flimsy! A front shock broke, and after replacing them with stiffer shocks (came from amazon, not sure what kind of vehicle they made the...

    Ground clearance AND stability?

    My sister is looking into joining the hobby and she was thinking of getting something that allows her to do large jumps, mud, etc. She said she would like something with a little more ground clearance than my Vorteks so I immediately started looking at other arrma trucks (love the vorteks) but...

    "Sh*t! It's on fire!" — Me, an hour ago.

    I walk to and drive my rc often in a place I live really close to. They always have a digger with a bucket parked next to the garage, so I figured I'd try a crazy jump inside of it- probably not a good idea in and of itself. Anyway, in goes the vorteks and it flips onto its back, laying inside...

So my brother got a Wltoys 124018 last August and it has worked just fine up until i couple months ago when the steering suddenly turned weird, so we took of the plastics/cover and the steering servo was really weak and making this ticking sound when you turned it and it would kinda...

    Heavy truck electronics, whats working for you?

    I'm building a 9lb capra and I'm not sure what electronics i can use in this thing. I was trying a riot xl 1100kv with castle copper head 10 on 4s but I'm still getting alot of cogging at low angle climbs. Are there transmission mods i could do? I feel like thats a part of it, it seems very high...

    Thinking of home making a pan car

    IS making a pan car even possible? It seems easy to make. If you made one could you share some insight on the process and if you had a specific budget what was it and did you stay beneath it?

    1st 1:10 Electric RC

    So I've currently got a 1:8 Nitro car that I run but I have recently found out that there is a club nearby that run 1:10 electrics and so I thought I'd take a look into it. Being somewhat of a novice with current cars I'd very much appreciate some input please? Looking at something like the...

    What does cooling a brushless motor do?

    Hi everyone! How and why do you get more power when you cool your motor? The efficiency of your motor doesn't change because it depends mostly of the max amp draw and IR of your motor. If you give the motor the same load , same voltage and same application the power that it makes in theory...
