Hpi Mini trophy build. - 04.23.2011, 07:40 PM

Hey guys, im getting one of these trucks sometime this week, and looking for some help. Running a sidewinder esc, 2~3s lipo, but what motor? I really wanted to order a neu motor, i want crazy torque, with mild speed, really i want to drift with it basically, in dirt of course. Building a flat track in my back yard, short coarse style. Any help?

I would think a Castle 1410/SCT combo would be more excellent choice for this truck ?

Sure is cool looking RC, just got done previewing it at the HPI website and I'm impressed with the looks and function.


I retired from RC, now life is all about guns and long range shooting.

I really like it too, but I wish they would have made it solid rear axle. They picked one of the very few trophy trucks that has independent rear suspension to model it after. Although it still has trailing arms which is cool.

I agree one of the 14-series Neu/Castle would be a good choice of motor and cost less than a true Neu. Castle/Neu are also better suited for car use with the flexible silicone leads and a few other minor differences.

Beleive me, that 1410 on 2s will be absolutely crazy in that truck. Some guys here are running that motor in a 7lb buggy on 2s with no heat issues. The motor is a 4pole just like a larger 1500series NEU. Motor ans ESC can be found for 100.00 or less.

If you really want to go nuts you could get the 1415 2400kv on 3S, but I bet the 1410 will be plenty. Doesn't take much to "drift on the dirt" with a little 4WD truck like that.

V2/SCT Sidewinder can't run 4S so you'd need to go up to the MMP. Probably can be done for the novelty, but you might just end up with extra power you can't put to the ground. Keep in mind a 1415 on 4S is enough to toss around a 1/8 buggy. You'll be spending extra money with no real benefit besides the novelty of having a super overkill machine, but it's your ride, do what you like best.

These are what you need: http://www.rc-monster.com/proddetail...d=RCMdiffshaft

They replace the regular drive cups with shafts that will allow the use of Traxxas driveshafts.
