RRCi Review in progress

Don't mean to tease, but can't resist posting a pic of my latest review, the GPV-1 all option special. Check it out in RRCi coming soon!

Always wanted an RC30, guess this is as close as I'll ever get....


Fully built and wired, brake kit, venom 5200kv brushless, all alloy option in a race spec chassis on V1 tyres and 5 spoke rims (before I painted them white) .. hmm yummy.

Jees you know maths was never my strong point, and I learnt many years ago not to count (or admit) how much I'd spent on racing or it would scare the wife ;-)

I must say though that the whole range of Venom RTR Spares/option parts are top notch and very reasonably priced indeed!

Yeah cheers Scaulfi, you'll see it in action later this year too!

Oh and MRB1GG, I think your brake servo horn is on upside down, the cables are being kinked once they leave the guide block to reach the servo horn, it should point down and not up as you look at it, that way the cables glide in and out and you get no brake drag, better brake action for less effort and a servo with less work to do will last much longer.

Should look like this... hence you need a 20mm motor can size to get clearance, which is why I guess yours is 180 degrees out and pointing upwards, your motor is too big?

Glad to help. Glad your motor is small enough to allow access.
