RC8 conversion vid


Just a short vid of my RC8 conversion...set up for really good speed (to get away from my Australian Shepherd...it's her "chase car"). 6s 30C lipo (almost dead in the video though ), Neu-Castle prototype 1517 1800kv motor, 24/44 gearing. I do 10 minute runs then shut her down...don't want to push the motor too hard just yet.

LOL...that's my Australian Shepherd...and it's HER car. LOL She LOVES chasing the car, and when I get home does everything but fetch the radio to tell me to play with her. I'll get some vid with the higher kv motor in it and fully charge the battery. That was an 1800kv motor with a 3/4 dead pack. Go up to the 2200kv and fully charge it...post vid of it for you guys. It's NUTS, and actually scares me to drive it. LOL

Thanks for the support today. I'm the one that asked the question about the CM 2042. You emailed me back.

I was wondering why Castle didn't provide specs. Then I realized "it is" a car motor. I'm using them in two GWS EDF 55's for a A10. They pull 15A WOT(a piece) and really are nice in that fan. My A10 is gonna be fast
