This looks really nice. Not familiar with this car - is it a conversion from nitro? How much of it is custom work?

I love belt drives. Should be a rocket!

50-60mph is an absolute underestimatement of the 1/8th onroaders.
At 80mph, you can drive these with definate easiness.
Let the real world prove it for you.

Nice to meet you!

I agree - the first time i drove a similar nitro serpent - it was way too fast - i couldnt believe the handling of it - was so much fun - ( with all the other cars i own ) i had to put it down - or it would of been a bunch more money for another car. Cant wait to see it go...


Hows that "Hope and Change" working out for Ya???

Simply amazing now what you need to do is adapt the same 3 speed system that shumacher uses in their new 1/8th 4wd car

Welcome aboard Grizzle and Pocket!

thanks for the kind words.!

No need for a 3 speed. wheels are spinning and spinning at any speed.. absolutely no need for the 3 speed.

Serum, can you imagine what would happen wiht a 2sp under full throttle when it shifted.... me thinks the massive torque of the brushless would do naughty things :D

Kinda like trying to drive a Jato on a side street (I have done that... when it shifts to 2nd it does donuts or wheelies and flips)

If the car could hook up it would be cool to watch it kick into 2nd and just destroy the nitro next to it, hee hee

Looks very impressive. We are so excited to see 1/8 BL gain momentum.

Here is a nice little video of a BL system using 4slipo that might push this car pretty good.

Enjoy! I know we did.

I live 20 minutes from the US distributer of shumacher. I just called them they only have 3 cars left & there not made anymore. It's not a true 1/8 onroad car it's a converted offroad truck.

Cool, welcome to the forum TeamTekin, and thanks for showing the movie. Though we guys like some technical details as well.! you can't get away with only posting a movie!! :p

Looks like a 4S setup to me.

What motor was used? a non segmented one? Feigao/wanderer/nemesis like or something completely different?

Hippie; i noticed that. They do that with more 'street' vehicles. ofna/hongnor is selling an 'onroad' buggy as well.

To be honest; the street thing isn't my bag.. It moves, and it moves good.. but i am more a fan of bigger wheels, and not getting stucked onto 1" high grass.. :) I like a brushless buggy much, much more.

it's nice if you have a track, with the right tarmac..
