Great that you can come! It's not exactly a short walk from the pier... You're looking at more than 5 miles from there. I'm sure one of us would be more than capable of offering you transportation from there, and I might volunteer cuz I think I'm the closest.

Holy &$#@!! I'm in shock. I knew linc had a ton of cars, but most of them aren't even working . I see 20 what look to be working cars. Thats incredible! How many radio systems do you use/have? I just have 3 cars... CRT.5, 8ight-T, and a D8. My D8 will be working as long as Mike finishes the motor mount on time. The other two are all ready to go.

22 cars total, there is an RC18B FT that did not make the photoshoot because it was still being built. Yes all cars are fully functional. I only have 3 transmitter. Airtronics M11 2.4, Futaba 3PM 2.4, and Spectrum DX7 for my rock crawlers.

I will bring my radar gun that day in case any of you guys want to clock your cars. I clocked my cars a few weekends ago on the grass and didn't get the insane speeds I hear so much about brushless setups. I think it could be me just gearing really low to start with on these cars.

Losi 8ight T
Tekno RC conversion kit
Mama Monster Max v3
NEU 1515 1y (2200kv)
NEU 4s 5000 MAH Lipo
13/48 gearing
Temps were 120 for ESC, 120 for motor and about 110 for battery after 20 mins on running a track. This car clocked in at 34mph consistently on grass (does wheelies).

Losi 8ight B
Tekno RC conversion kit
Mamba Monster Max v3
NEU 1512 1.5d (2050kv)
NEU 4s 5000 MAH Lipo
14/48 gearin
Temps were 110's across the board after about 20 mins of running on a track. The car clocked in at about 33mph consistently on the grass.

EMaxx
Mamaba Monster Max v3
NEU 1515 1.5d (2700kv)
NEU 4s 5000 MAH Lipo
17/68 gearing
Temps were 110's across the board after about 20 mins of running on a track. The truck does somersaults on dirt! Does back flips when I punch throttle at like half speed. I clocked this guy in at 35mph on the grass.

All cars although reliable are not registering these 50-60mph speeds I hear about. Are these guys with these kinds of speed only doing quick speed passes with insane gearing?

If they are all doing mid 30's on grass/dirt does that mean they are geared correctly? I heard gearing correctly should yield 40mph on asphalt right? Any comments would be appreciated.

You need to gear down to keep the temps right in the grass. 110-120 are excellent temps in the grass, actually. I ran my Revo (with 3905 E-Maxx tranny) @ 22/62 on 4s lipo with the 1515 1.5D and it ran very well on dirt and onroad it was a bit mad. 17/68 is way undergeared for onroad performance.

For higher speed, you also need more voltage. 4s is good for 40-45 top speed, 6s should put you past 60.

EDIT: If you want to run the E-Maxx onroad, 24/58 should be OK with that motor but watch your temps.


All I ever wanted was an honest weeks pay for an honest days work.

Let's see: Savage, Z-Car buggy, Rustler, X-Cellerator, Jammin' truggy, rock crawler (maybe), 18t (maybe), XLB (maybe). This could be a very interesting bash with so many vehicles...

Hey is it LeBard park for sure? Shaun and Travis, you guys may want to go check out Shipleys Nature Center in HB. Its but a few minutes from LeBard. You guys may want to check it out. There are dirt hills, big jumps, flat lands, grass lands, and no neighbors to worry about there. Good parking for setup and pitting too. Check it out if you guys can. Slater going West make a left at Goldenwest. Then go into the parking lot on the right side about 1/4 mile down. Maybe something different if you guys are down for it.
