Ebay special, manufactured in JP. Better than replacing cracked plastic parts all the time. I like the Terminator skeleton look lol

I got a acme/hobbyking tropper last week. I replaced the stock motor with a mystery 3900kv 3650 motor. Also swapped out the stock 35a esc with a 60a turnigy trackstar esc. Im running it on a 3s 5000mah hard case lipo which makes it lightning quick and holds to firmly on the ground. Only problem is if i run it flat out for to long something over heats and it shutsdown for a moment or two. But other then that I love this car.

1/10th acme trooper with 3900kv on a 3s very fast (6 min 40 sec)

Here is my only truck a bone stock ECX Torment. I got it last friday when i finaly got tired of waiting for the wind to die down so i could fly my RC planes.

I absolutely love this thing. More then enough speed and grunt for me. Jumps great and takes abuse seemingy well. Get 30mins of runtime on a 5200Mah 2s LiPo. And she just looks awesome
I never knew RC cars could be that much fun.

do you change the oil in the diff? are you shimming it right. I have never blown a diff, and i mostly run 6s but i do run heavier oils then most

yeh, i put grease as the oil isnt thick enough and yes i check. To be fair i have only blow one diff (spider gears) as its had a full season of nitro racing in the USA from its first owner, then my mate converted it and drove it for about 3-4months then i blew it in a week. I also busted a diff idler gear and diff spur gear, but this thing is so hard on its driveline i also broke a drive shaft, bearings dont last long ect. Also i never really drive it anymore as driving alone is boring.

Torment.


Just had to show my truck after running two 5200's today.. The suspension is a little soft so the tyres burned trough the paint above the rear wheels.

The rear hangs down a little more then normal due to the weight of the heavy mud haha.

Hey Traxxas & drag racing fans, you will like this. Here's a NICE high resolution image you might want to print for your workshop with John Force/Traxxas 2012 schedule. I printed it at work on 11 x 17 paper. Turned out nice!

:thumbsup:

I got into rc trucks and cars for the same reason

Now I've got slashes and rustlers and troppers and emaxxs but once you want a change from speed and bashing, crawling and making your own scaler is also AWESOME!

hmmm, maybe something to thinck about as i have gotten sick of driving by myself and just race now, maybe a crawler would be good, but that has to wait till iev but alot of other non rc related stuff.
