CRT.5 brushless basher - 09.21.2011, 09:37 AM

Couldn't resist the price: 79.99$ for the pro roller that's a steal. Especially if you know that the car continues as a sct truck (SCRT10-E) so all the parts are still available. That's a sweet deal!!
I found a lot of info on these forums, so thanks. Hopefully I can inspire some people too. Enjoy!
Parts used:
Ofna Jammin CRT.5 http://www.ofnawarehouse.com/product...oducts_id=1127
RC Monster motormount and lipotray
conversionkit OFNA Receiver Box Set (OFN40946),
steeringservo: Hitec (5625MG)
Futaba receiver
Mamba Monster ESC + 2650 kVA 5mm V3 motor currently with a 13T pinion
Hyperion 35C 5000 mAh 3s lipo.


First I needed to switch to the long chassis to be able to work with a bigger steering servo:

To protect the investment: T-bones

Lipo fitting: as big as possible :)

IMG_3866 [1280x768] by Gv288, on Flickr

paintwork, not my favorite part

decals to cover up the paint mistakes ;)

I Couldn't risk not having enough power, so .....
CC 2650 + mamba max esc: I'm loving it, my tires aren't :))) The drivetrain holds up well, no problems there (and I beat it)

Almost finished

Mike's Lipotray a bit redone

Photobucket seems to be better at keeping pics up, but they have a ton of site advertising that slows everything down. I guess i should not complain, free is free right.

And good price on the crt.5, especially being the pro version.

With a shiny body

IMG_3909 [1280x768] by Gv288, on Flickr

I must say it's a very clean setup!

IMG_3917 [1280x768] by Gv288, on Flickr
bad tire-gluing, or better: bad preperation (didn't clean or degrease them)

IMG_3921 [1280x768] by Gv288, on Flickr

As a result I brought home some sand

IMG_3932 [1280x768] by Gv288, on Flickr

second body, just to be prepared
stole some ideas from the punisher skull

I have 40 serie Mashers on my E-REVO and I love them. I just had to put them on (the 2.2" version that is). I changed the frontbomper to a rear model. The rear is smaller and allows full turning of the tires.
As a result: wheelies without having to put thicker oil in the diff

am I the only one that has terrible luck with the steering knuckles, and front A arms? Seems like every outting results in a broken knuckle. I've also broken the rear axle carrier. Those knuckles aren't cheap either...I broke 3 of them at the track in one day, on one battery pack. Mines running a 540 can motor too.... guess I just cartwheel it too much. Bought it for my girlfriend but shes kind of afraid to drive it since she doesn't want to break it. (shes broken 2 knuckles, lol)

oh well, looks mean with the mashers. I gotta pick up a set for my savage someday :)

I've read about those issues. I have the traxxas parts tyo replace the front upper arms and the steeringlink, but I'm not going to replace them before they break.
And for now everything is still good

That is a great deal. I always enjoyed my .5.

I never really broke any knuckles, but I did break the servo saver a couple times on before I moved the rod to the inner position.

I also have a set of mashers for mine, altho its impossible to keep the F wheels down. One trick I do like with the mashers are to mount them on the TRX 2.8" rims. I cut the beads off, then mount them inside the new rims. Same size, but much less ballooning and a bit better handling.

Original thread from way back when

Do you have a picture of this, I don't really understand what you mean.

Sounds like a good idea. I taped mine, so the ballooning is ok but steering is far worse

Love your paintwork

Thanks on the paint. It was first airbrush job. Screwed a bunch of things up, but still came out ok. Still have the shell, but it is very rough from all the bashing.

it's a t-bone rear bumper (front is bigger and the OP said it rubbed against the mashers) that was installed in the front. they are basically the bumper that RPM never made and they are great at preventing knuckle and a-arm breakage. i had a set on my old rustler and i went from breaking 1-2 knuckles and caster blocks every run to breaking only one after about 30 runs.


They say a good mechanic only needs 2 tools - WD40 & Duct tape. If it moves, and its not supposed to, duct tape. If it doesn't move, and its supposed to, WD40.

Correct. In the first pictures with stock wheels and tires it's the frontbumper.
In the pictures with the mashers it's the rearbumper.

Both are a direct fit, they come with longer screws for a perfect fit. I really love those T-bones. I'm installing them on al my vehicles
