    Sean's slowest build in the world.

    So it all started 10 months ago when I sold my slash 2wd as a roller and stuffed the electronics into a rally roller. I converted to a slash and put on some PL switches on PL beadlocks and painted up a PL svt body. I blew my esc back in February and saved enough money to replace it with a ET-3S in May. I found out that my motor was shot on its first run with the new esc, and finally the motor will be arriving in a few weeks. the most recent mod was a free one , I modified the front driveshafts and removed the center driveshaft to run it in 2wd. I have more pics but am limited to 10 of'em.

    Hopefully I'm running within the next 2 weeks, just waitin on $$$$$ from my neighbor! Once I get the motor the VG racing chassis brace is next for strength and handling.

    So I got paid and I am 4 bucks short, so I guess I'll ask 4 friends at school tomorrow for a dollar. If I cant keep the rx box in the chassis I will make a mounting plate with lexan and take the radio out of the box since it is no longer waterproof. I will be looking into a STRC esc mounting plate, my neighbor gave me a pay cut to....

    Right now it is an "if," so if there isn't enough room when I get the motor installed it'll be on a mounting plate.

    The one out of the funny car is what I will be ordering, it is either 2600 or 2650, not 100% sure.


    EDIT: Just checked and it actually is the 2400, my bad. My dads has the losi version so it has the bigger 4mm bullets.

    Awh cool
    I have the same thing just not rebranded
    Make sure to get some good driveshafts
    I've bought traxxas cvds and tekno m6 driveshafts for mine
    The traxxas ones are amazing
    There actually pretty light
    The teknos I bought for my 2wd but accidently bought 4x4 ones
    I decided to put them on my slash 4wd because of the huge rear carreirs
    I haven't tested them out yet
    They weigh about the same as traxxas ones

    IMO the traxxas ones seem tougher
    But the tekno m-6 seems to be better for adjustments and has bigger bearings
    So theyd be ideal for racing

    It depends on what you want, and your driving conditions

    You be popping wheelies soon!

    No wheelies for now, I'm still running NIMH. But, I have a guaranteed job between December and May! So come december this build will accelerate greatly, and will probably go lipo then, which means wheelies!

    Sound good bud!
    When you get your 2400 it'll be slower then stock because your using Nimh
    You also will have shorter run times
    If your vxl motor still works use it until you go lipo!

    My bearings are shot on the VXL and the screws are stripped on the motor can so I can't rebuild it. It'll run faster than the VXL is running now....

    So I was bored and I weighed my truck, 2.21 kg without the battery and set up as 2wd. If the 2wd is weighed without the battery in the specs then the truck only weighs .05kg more. If that is the case I am expecting good handling out of this thing. My motor should be ordered by tomorrow.

    Motor order! Man, I can't wait enough for you....

    It takes a special person to be so diligent and faithful while on the side lines, I myself would have found a new distraction

    So I went to check when the motor was to arrive, turns out the order didn't go through! On top of that the 2 cheaper ads have ended. Now the waiting game starts again.... My patience is being tested yet again...

    So it arrived early! I have it installed and ready to run as soon as I get a mounting plate for the esc, a new hex wrench to get the pinion off the old motor, and a new spur. Any suggestions on what settings for castle link? My plans for birthday presents may change a bit based on how much money I make between now and then. I'll try to post pics tomorrow when I don't have too much homework and when I am not dodging parents....

    Picture delivery!





    It all fits pretty well, just had to take the top part of the rx box off so I could get enough cable to flip the esc around, so now everything fits snugly in there. Does anybody know if somebody has gotten the savox 0321 servo in the lcg, looks like a tight fit.... Hopefully this weekend I have enough time to get all my settings where I want them on castle link.

    So the rest of my onfa hex wrenches snapped and I didn't know what brands you guys would recommend. The truck hasn't gotten any work the past week as I've been busy trying to get money for more parts.

    Snapped a picture of my birthday present a few days early, I will also get a strc gunmetal mounting plate for my birthday. Maybe more parts for Christmas if I can convince my dad that I don't put "too much" money into my truck.... Paychecks on the way from my winter job soon...

    So I am loving these hex wrenches! Thanks MIP. I will try to snap some pictures of the STRC mounting plate with the esc on it. Also might post some pics of one of my christmas presents when my parents are not looking over my shoulder. My friend is offering me his barely used rustler vxl for $125 with electronics so I may be adding a car into my lonely stable within a few weeks! Any suggestions on how to paint the chassis brace I will be getting for christmas? Also, any suggestions for my castle link setup? My et3s has this new motor at a crawl.

    Your limiting factor in your truck is not running 3s lipos. Instead of buying your friend's truck I would buy a 5000mah+ lipo and a decent charger. You will wake that truck up. Right now it's like you are trying to run a top fuel dragster on 87 octain gas. You add more power and you will be very happy
