LOL, my buggy came with no fail safe to control the brakes, For some reson the xtal in the reciever *vibe'd loose... I learnt how to sprint for money that day.. Chased the thing a block and a half, not that I could catch it, but at least I tried :-/

It was a trip back to the hobby shop, *5 mins of fun cost me almost 80$ in parts after severing the front left suspension on a curb, at about 60+mph :'( Im lucky the chassis are tough on the OFNA's A similar crash split the plastic chassis in half during a similar collision with an evil curb, on an old electric.

Lesson in R/C.. If you break it on the first run it seems to be good luck or something, the second time is better as you keep in mind not to repeat the first :P
Yea I had a Traxxas 4-tec rc car that i got for my birthday bout 5 years ago. First 20 minutes of playing with it I went too close to a car and the back wheel jammed under the car tire and ripped it right off LOL I was pissed. Also I used to be really big into XMODS *;D I love those lil guys. 1:28 scale car merely 5 inches long and went over 40mph! lol those things are amazing. I can't tell you how many FET's and boards I burned up. A 60,000rpm motor drawing over 1.2amps in this tiny little car? lol. I want to get a Kyosho Mini-Z F1 like the one below. Far superior quality of an xmod.

Default Re: Hopped up 1/18 scale RC monster truck!

Pic of my old XMOD. I loved this thing * Atomic Z2 high current motor 58,370RPM @ 8.4v (2.8 Amp Draw). AWD. modded 4xAAA battery holder with 4x10440 in 2S2P configuration. Low resistance FET's stacked 3 high. This thing was a BEAST of a little car lol. fit in the palm of your hand and went at least 35mph * ;D 8-) had a hummer h2 body but it was heavy and always made it flip when i turned so i never used it. it was EXTREMELY high maintainance. at nearly 3 amps it just couldn't handle it and fried constantly. I went thru over 10 boards and FET sets with this thing. Not to mention how many boards i messed up on while desoldering the stock FET's (ripped pads off the board :-[ ) After a while it just pissed me off so i sold it lol. I miss it though *:'(

Sweet! I used to have a x-mod, it was really cool but the electronics suck! it kept glitching.

So, who can guess the first thing I did after I completed the motor swap on this truck? No, to go drive it was 2nd. The first thing I did was search on the net for the parts list, to get an idea of what else I had to upgrade. Being that rc toys are also a big hobby of mine, my experience has taught me that when you upgrade the power, that the drive train also needs to be upgraded. I had to order two new differentials, upgraded from plastic gears to metal ball bearing, and I had to upgrade drive shafts from plastic to aluminum. I also bought the center drive shaft, a set of knuckle arms and 'A' arms. I was able to run it once, but heard the snapping of plastic teeth breaking and knew what I had to buy next. Can't wait!
