Two Traxxas high torque servos

5.5 and 8mm bullets

Some 10 gauge wire

x460 for Hydro and an x450 for Vader

and a bunch of other little stuff..............


I can at least get the servos in and start making the parallel connectors. I can also add connectors to the ESC.................. No more "staring" at this nice hull................... Felt like it took forever to get stuff in
Wohooooooo!!!!!!!......and very nice days and temps in the area!!!......im hitting the water tomorrow,taking at least 3-4 boats........
Anyways,.....im still watching.................Al

That IS a monster for sure scorp. I've been campaigning to try to get WRP to make a mount for one. In the meantime you may just have to manufacture your own. (I know you ain't gonna wait for one)
Any idea of what the bolt hole spacing is?

Charge up the Video Camera. Get the motor mounted. We can take a late lunch and take a quick trial on the pond out back tomorrow.

I may have to find Ms BeHavin a nice foster family to adopt her. You will need a challenger to race so I'll have to get the other 50" to build, and provide a use for the spare 2028 you'll have collecting dust.

Scorp,

A motor of that stature really needs to be photographed with an "adult beverage" can, not a wimpy soda can

Truely impressive!! Can't wait to see it run!!

What the hell!!!......beer,soda its the same thing/size!!!.....you better build a good solid mount `cause this monster can rip your inside hull in one pull!!!!...you can later on try Peter Zicha.....hes very affordable,specially if it is for a one bracket mount only.,,,,,
You can probably ride on top of this monster whenever its done..........

Did someone mentioned the possible availability of a 2028??!!.....lol...if so let me know!!!!,....Albert
