Missed this... thanks Alex. I went to a local Recreation Ground the other day that has this nice gravel car park. It was fun to drive on and get some pics. It was just missing some jumps!

Finally got to take the truck for another run today. Issues are resolved. For the some reason the esc's must have been out of sync. The are totally matched now except the front brakes are set to 25% and the rear at 50%.

Had to take some more pics!

Your welcome! I was looking at that picture again with the tire ballooning. :shock: That is really impressive! I assume those tires ARE glued? :mrgreen: You can see where the bead is on that rear tire. I love that shot!

I just found my body for my Barbarian build. Going to see if Shane can paint it up for me.

Yeh tires are glued! I only just found out that the Prolne F250 Supercab body has been discontinued... I really like that body.

Drove this truck for the first time in ages the other day... It's a blast! I need a gravel area to drive on though, grass is too grippy, resulting in roll overs. I hadn't thought too much about it, but this truck won ROTM on two forums...... Shane-Buds body really sets it off.

This truck is awesome! I knew you did the TXT-2 with Clod axles, but forgot you did this as well. Im currently running the Firebolts in the TXT-C2 I just built but after driving it once I just put it on the shelf. Compared to my brushless shafty trucks its downright boring. Think the only way Ill ever use it is to go dual brushless. Might look into the motors/ESCs you have in this truck.

Thanks! The Firebolts go really well on 3S.... Not sure on longevity though! I'm building another one of these, but keeping the cantilever suspension. I think I will run twin brushless in that as well.

Havent run them on 3S yet, have read they dont do well with it. Maybe Ill just run 3S until they go then upgrade to brushless. How do the Clod axles do with brushless power, do they hold up well? Ill most likely run 3300-3800kv motors on a single 3S.

I haven't had any issues at all running brushless. The Firebolts on 3S gave around the same top speed as my 4370kv brushless motors, but the brushless have much more torque down low. I haven't burnt out the Firebolts on 3S, but running at night I can see the sparks flying off the brushes!

3300-3800kv on 3S should be really fast!

Yea, I should have explained better. The speed is good once it gets going, but the torque is pathetic...Ill run them on 3S for a while and see how it goes. If (and when) they burn out Im thinking its time for brushless. Do you run both ESCs from one battery? Thats most likely what I would do, dont want the extra weight of two batteries.
