That's what I use in my trooper. I have 30,40,60 wt and use the 60 in the heavier nitro circus monster truck and 30 and 40 in the trooper. Sometimes I use 60 as well depending on how much jumping I plan to do with the trooper.

Note, I find that putting too heavy or thick shock oil can cause the plastic shock caps on the trooper to Pop off in a hard landing. Keep that in mind.

Nice!

What GPS device is that? I am about to throw my cell phone in my car to measure the top speed as well.

I just swapped my components out to the Hobby King 100A ESC and the same 3430KV leopard motor.
The other day I was experiencing some hesitation on 2S when flooring the gas pedal, but i believe it was because i did not have the ESC calibrated correctly. After calibrating, I ran the truck on 3S for a little while with no issues other than having trouble controlling a rocket on wheels...lol.

oh, the sheetrock fiber tape + shoe goo is a great solution...got that out of the way. Also...gave the body a bit of custom paint scheme...lol

Nice paint job.

The GPS is a Garmin Forerunner 201. I like it because it is waterproof so I don't have to worry about it getting wet when used on my boats.

Test run on 3S battery. This is a bad test run.. didn't get a good run and the servo died on me.. But I did record a 52.4mph run. I think it could go faster if I had a better run. Will try again after I replace the servo.

hahaa looks like a missile on wheels Hang!

tested my truck with a cell phone speedometer app called DigiHUD last night.
I am not as confident controlling my truck as you are via line of sight...so I decided to make a few runs with some FPV gear...lol.

Sat the camera on the ground since I was wearing the fatshark goggles...ground point of view is pretty dramatic. would have been more dramatic if I had run the camera over...lol

I got it!
The yellow bar showing the stock status was going shorter and shorter... I could not wait until next re-stock in EU warehouse!
My only complain is that my son's birtdhay is in July, so I have to wait until that time to unpack (I cannot unpack my Nitro Circus SCT before delivering him his Quanum Vandal XL !)
I presume it will be an interesting RC summer for us...
