I just received the buggy version, looks pretty neat. I haven't put it side to side with the other ones, but it feels like it's longer than the Stadium Truck.

Could be the same wheelbase of the micro DT?

Its an ok deal to me, but with the wltoys 1/28 being not that much more and much easier to drive, this is a hard sell unless its specifically the type of platform you want. Also, parts availability is unknown yet.

Mines was at max tightness and was way too soft for me. I tried replacing the spring with one from wltoys and it is way too stiff.

Servo dimensions are length 22mm, width 11mm, height 25mm without spline shaft.

I also found a 2s lipo battery that fits in the battery compartment, but it is an extremely tight fit and is probably not good for the battery. The battery is a 180 mah from hobby king https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-...pack-5pcs.html

Here are some pics of my conversion with everything mounted up top. Also shown with a wltoys 1/28 k989, wltoys 1/24 ??? and an ancient kawada m24 for comparison. This car isn't smaller than the 1/28 like I hoped.

Just found out about this and got excited about spare parts. It's all about the gear box replacement for the micro t for those that went brushless.

I have to put it next to the SCT for comparison, but it's definitely longer wheelbase than the Stadium Truck version. As result, corners are a little easier, but still the servo goes to full angle way too soon. You see the same with trimming, first there is little movement, but if you move trim further, the servo goes to max angle. Seems like there is a lot of "expo" programmed into either the servo or the transmitter, so there is little steering response around center, but a little further from center it goes all out. Shame, because that is what could have made it much more controllable to drive. The original Micro T still rules here, giving much smoother steering.

LT832 - Battery polarity


I just got the buggy version this week. Just wanted to point out that the Polarity of the battery and electronics is different than the Losi Micro series.
I had to stop myself before I plugged it in and something potentially got smoked.

In short the Negative and Positive battery / ESC leads are reversed between the LT832 and the Losi.

Welcome to RCG and thanks for pointing that out.
