    Hi there, I had some battery life issues with my Alias soon after I got it. As Double G said, the batteries should be 4.2 Volts after charging. I was monitoring my batteries and they never got down...

    What typical run times do you get Double G? Given the up to 15 minutes advertised, 4 minutes 30 seconds for my 'good' battery seems excessively short. The review here seems to imply in real world use...

    Hey Russ916, sorry for the reply to a very old post. Did you ever get the watt meter connected to the Alias to see what the draw at full power was and work out what value the LVC was set at? Also,...

    Hey, thanks for the reply. I flew the Alias again today and got a rather disappointing 4mins 30s and 2mins out of the two batteries. It was relatively cold out today 2-3 degC, I don't know if this...
  5. Early Low Voltage Cutoff (LVC) on Alias? Sign of a bad battery?

    Hi all, I got my a LaTrax Alias at Christmas (after getting a LaTrax Tetron a couple of years ago and being impressed) and am enjoying it. However, I have noticed less than impressive flight times....

    I think the best one in the UK for availability and pricing is Traxxas UK who you can phone up. Details are on the Traxxas website. I'm not sure if they ship internationally but they've been good...

    This is normal and probably due to weight transfer. When you hit the gas and accelerate the more weight will be transferred to the back wheels than the front wheels. This means they'll have more grip...

    Your temp gun is reading wrong.

    It is pretty much a physical impossibility that the top of the cooling head could be hotter than the glowplug area if the heat is being generated down by the glow...

    N80, I agree with you on this one as other factors will come into effect such as greater rolling resistance etc when the car gets excessively heavy.

    Top speed has nothing to do with the weight of the truck/buggy. The weight will only effect the acceleration of the vehicle, not it's top speed.

    Do you have to have servos other than the stock ones for this mod to work so you can adjust the endpoints or will it work just as well with the stock servos?

    Thanks

    It wasn't leaking because of the washer, it was leaking through the centre of the glowplug where you have the metal bit the blue wire attaches to if you see what I mean.

    I've recently got a Revo and when I bought it it came with 1/2 gallon of Model Technics Duraglow 16% which seems to be running it well. My problem is my LHS (bought it online, LHS...
