Speed calc says you are geared for 70+mph and 50k RPM on the motor. I'd say that's overgeared and too much voltage for the motor. Even with lower gearing Castle recommends 4S max on the 2650kv. The...

Should be a fine choice. For a pocket compact camera I always like to handle them before buying because the tiny button layouts can be hit or miss. The 14MP is more than enough. My Xmas present to...

Got my SCX10 back out for a little runtime. Since I last posted I have switched a few things: now running with Gmade XD piggyback shocks, Bluebird brushless HV servo, and an aluminum front bumper.

So you have a sample size of 2, and those 2 chosen with the intent to prove a point. Not exactly credible evidence if you ask me.

Just curious I guess. When I get a new Castle ESC I always load it to the newest firmware because many of the updates have bug fixes i.e. it is a little bit broke, it does need to be fixed. Don't...

Castle Phoenix air ESC firmware question

Hey there guys,

Haven't been browsing the RCM forums for awhile. Cars have been on the back burner, got bit by the airplane bug and have been having a blast with those lately.

Capacitors on the power input of the ESC. The ESC has a few built-in, but many people add extra. Castle makes a cap bank, or you can buy caps and make a bank yourself. You need low ESR caps, and make...

I picked up a JQ Products "The Car" dogbone that is 104mm pin to pin for my Jammin GT so I could use the RCM center spool. They don't have any 100mm though, next shorter to the 104mm is 90mm.

I haven't seen the parts you are talking about, so I might be thinking of this wrongly, but what about a sleeve, 6mm ID 8mm OD to go over the stock 6mm shaft? Kind of like Mikes pinion adapters to...

Forgot to update this after I got the Gmade XD shocks.

I think I have a 13mm Ofna shock rolling around my parts bins. Probably a long shot, but I'll test the fit for you this weekend when the Gmade show up.

Are you talking about the older 13mm big bores, or the newer 16mm big bores? I always thought UE supershocks were rebranded Ofna 13mm big bores. Could be totally wrong, but they look alike to me.

I am thinking about picking up some of the 93mm for my SCX10 scaler. For me it's more for looks, but it would be fun to play with them just to see how they work.

You could try the bladders from Revo/Jato GTR shocks, pretty sure they are the same dimensions. Maybe put a little pill of medium/high density foam inside the bladder to stiffen it up?
