Yeah, I think it would be a blast. One would think there would be nice performance gains, although at the expense of your motor.

from what I've read, most people won't use them because of how hard they are on the motor. Ya gotta remember that there are hardcore racers who rebuild the engine every gallon of fuel and change the clutch after every run etc etc. At this rate the negative effects don't seem that bad.

I'd have to say it's been added to my list of upgrades :) near the bottom :(
Lots of more important upgrades first.

Hey everyone, i'm back. Been offline for a little while during our transition to sky broadband.

Hmmm, that supercharger looks pretty sweet! I'd love to try one on a decent OS motor or something that won't be blown apart by running that much boost.

@ skitzo Pix of? I only had my camera phone so I only took a few pix of the race cars, I should be heading back up this weekend though, hopefully I get some nice pix. I have over 330 pix from a couple weeks ago but not on my PC as of yet :(

I had a blast over the weekend, got ran over by an atv! Lost the control arms on the Lr and the gas tank. Came back to town fixed her up and headed back to the track Sunday where I somehow managed to snap one of the control arms I just replaced! Was out bashing last night in a soccer field untill I hit a light pole from about 30mph! Only damage was an anhialated Rf lower control arm, I love this REVO it takes a SERIOUS beating Lol

EDIT : some pix from after a couple minutes of bashing earlier today

:toast:

yeah, not too much activity here...

I read you should stick to what you broke the motor in on, but more alcohol means more power so ya gotta ask yourself, do I have enough :laugh:

I went hunting for skid plates, no go on the titanium. I'm gonna have to wait a week for the superduty aluminum skids to arrive :(

that's a great idea :)
what kind of cam?

A while back I saw an add for a wireless cam that runs on a 9 volt battery. Transmits ~30 meters for ~ 1 hour. Not really enough range for flight but would be fun for me. I've also considered trying my old cell phone, it does movies without audio.

This hobby is expensive. I decided to forgo the w/c for my pc this summer for my TMaxx, I've spent alot more than the w/c was gonna be :laugh: I see myself spending more in the future too :eek:

did ya wreck the motor already too, or when you asked yourself "do I have enough", did ya blow right past fuel into a motor upgrade?

My 2 cents:
do some other upgrades first ... namely protection :) If you add more power without more protection you could end up bust'n more parts with your crashes. The roll cage with the wing mount looked good, should stiff'n things up so you can hit those 6 foot jumps (might even help your landings with the wing and all):D.

An OS motor with the super charger would be fun :toast:

already have/had a wingmount + wing :laugh: didn't help with flying! need to be better at applying throttle/brake during flight ;)

motor is OK but more power is alway's good ;)


got the RPM front arm's last friday just have to install them.....

i'm thinking first new steering servo (stock is crap), then roll cage + bigger motor :rockout:

I take it by the have/had, the wing was a casualty in a crash...

The steering servo was my first uprgade.

Finally picked up some screws, not gonna wait for more parts. My patience has run out lol. I might just have to start ordering parts online. The lhs isn't very big and some of the parts I want have to be pre paid and ordered in, at that rate I'm getting the same service as online without delivery. Time to twist some little wrenches :)

this is killing me, I had no plans to let this thing sit so long :(
got it back together the other day but havn't had a chance to take it out. Stopped by the lhs yesterday, skids should be in by next friday, new lid and rpm wear plates will be in today. I was told that titanium parts are not being made atm because of high material costs. Grabbed some new springs cause she's sitt'n a little low after all the aluminum upgrades. Think'n I may grab a new clutch bell, wanna try the 16T and 18T.

I'll post some picks this afternoon :)

I need to decide on paint for the lid (early 50's Chev pickup). Leaning towards a candy black/blue with some candy violet extras., any suggestions?

I've been thinking about functioning brake lights; specifically the activation. I can think of a few mechanicaly activated setups to build, but that means more moving parts to break. The servo's present another option ( I think); they have three wires: positive, negative, and signal. I'm wondering about the signal; does it have two different signals (high and low) or a single that reverses the motion. If there are two distinct signals I should be able to build a circuit that would detect the braking signal and activate the brake lights via transistor.


Does anyone know of a good guide for reinstalling the engine ( gear alignment)? I'm pretty sure I've done it right, just want to make sure.

@ Intelli gent I forgot about that site you said I should check out/join, can ya hit me with the name again pleaze

k, no skid plates, no wear plates, no lid yet. idk, looking at the picks I don't see alot of difference, my wallet is a fair bit thinner though :laugh:




the washers are only there so I could button it all up. The screws are too long but that'll change when I add the wear plates.




this is most of what I've replaced already

:rockout:

well, I finally took it out and got it tuned... what a blast. My day got cut short cause my spare air filters were the wrong ones but the motor saver filter lasts longer in the sand :) If I oil the pre filter it should be alot better. I think I may have smoked the clutch, gotta take a look. It's slipping pretty bad and at one point it appeared to be smoking :laugh:

when I picked up the new lid, I found out I was looking at the wrong shelf for paint. The lexan paints don't come in the colors I want (looking for dark candy colors) so I'm back to square one as far as paint goes. How does the holographic paint look? Can it be backed by any color? If possible, I'm thinking metalic blue or black with the effects being holographic backed by metalic red. The effects will be minimal, busy paint jobs don't have alot of appeal for me.. I'd rather use the dark candy colors though.
