Skellyo: I've been in Orlando for a little over a month, and now have to leave again already. It was just weird coincidence that I got called in for a job interview right when I was getting ready to...

I decided to order the MMP 1-cell and go for a sensored setup. The motor will have to wait since I'm moving to Cleveland for job training next week, and the Novak Build-A-Ballistic wouldn't be done...

Here are some updated underbody shots. You can see I soldered the BEC input directly to the board of the Sidewinder. I think it's a cleaner install than having it soldered to the battery plug. Doing...

I got a servo horn today and then tested out the new steering link. Instead of using the 2 spacers I ended up using the original link along with the bent rod ends. It was longer, but that ended up...

I 4-linked the front today. Again I used the Axial truss, but this time I was able to use the plastic links that were on the same parts tree as the truss (AX80043). With both the front and rear now...

The Sidewinder internal BEC was definitely no match for the amp hungry Spektrum servo. Installed the Castle external BEC and set it to 6.4V, no need to worry about RX brownouts or resets now.

Today I 4-linked the rear end of my SCX10. Used the Axial truss with Delrin links and RC4WD plastic rod ends. I made the links 2mm longer to adjust the pinion angle upward a little bit. Going to...

I decided even the softest Jato springs weren't soft enough, so I tried out some new shocks. They are Hot Racing 100mm air shocks. Usually stay away from HR stuff, but heard these were OK. They had...
