:rockout:

which method are you gonna use to break in the red dot?
I'm think'n of picking up a temp gun, I don't really care if people think it's a waste... no such thing a a useless tool :)
I was think'n of runn'n 30% only but the picco is gonna suck back the fuel so that could be killer. Really gonna need that second fuel tank now :laugh: Gotta look closer into fuels, I think the new recipies with the synthetic lubricants could have some serious benifits, even with the higher prices. I'm gonna do everything I can to make the picco last alot longer ... shoot'n for 2 months :rockout:
so how fast do ya think your revo's gonna go? Thinkk the red dot will last longer than the 3.3? :)

did ya check out that web site? I havn't had a chance to go back. The flames on the tmaxx looked pretty good

think i'm gonna give the heat cycle method a go for this one, i used a mix of the traxxas method with the heat cycle method for the 3.3 so.....

i've been seriously thinking of getting one myself but i think i'll be getting it from princess ;)

i've been having good luck with the sidewinder 20/12, my LHS sell's only sidewinder so......

i can get other one's but the guy at the other LHS is a bit of a pr!ck

i think runnin' in the sand is what killed ya so you may want to look into improving the filtration system if you plan on continuing the beach bashing

not really shure about the speed......

i'd hope the red dot to last a little longer than the 3.3 (it still run's but could use a re-seal and new front bearing)

i did but it's too slow for me so i left......

flame's on who's maxx? your maxx? pix NAO!

how's about a picco update Intel igent:rockout:
If your stock tires ballon too much and come unglued with the 3.3, wonder how they'll like the picco :)
:laugh: you could always try some bailing wire and a drill :laugh:
atleast if they keep breaking the glue bond, you can get away with re-using the rims with new rubber if ya want.

well i've been up and running for the last couple of week's untill last night where i think i fried my clutch!

gonna have to do a complete tear down/clean/inspect as i got into the mud yesterday :rockout:

the power of the picco is simply AWESOME compared to the 3.3, even with the center diff she still want's to wheelie :respect: :pimp:

yesterday was pretty wicked, we had 5 baja's running around with savage's, revo's, Tmaxx's, and a couple truggies/buggies.....

that sounds like a blast :rockout:

have you considered any clutch upgrades incase it is the clutch?
With the new gears you are running, how long until it shifts to second gear?
With all your new found power, ya gonna put some bigger rubber on that beast? Are you still running the talons?

I've alway's loved RC's...since I was young, and few years back I had a pimped X-Mod that would fly:rockout:. Sooo, my b-day is coming up, and I was thinking of maybe 2x640GB for raid-0. Then I thought, I need a new hobby...so I went on the net, and picked out the car and stuff I'm getting.

The car is a Traxxas Rustler XL-5...battery a 7C 8.4v 4200, and the charger just a semi-cheapo...Duratrax Onyx 200. Should fly, I'm a 10 min walk from a sand pit, with some big sand walls...so I may pick up some paddles too:D Will be my first Youtube videos;)

Going back a few pages, P4-630, that CAD work on that 1/10 touring car is amazing! Have you thought about getting it made?

I've almost got it ready, few little things to tweek and I can start breakin. I think I managed to squeeze the jp3 in there not too bad... it's not perfect but it should do for now.









Half way through break-in, gonna try to complete it over the next couple of days :rockout:

i'm LOVIN' it!

look's mean man :pimp:

here's a few pix of what i've been up to and where i'm at....

i'm undecided of what body to use, i don't wanna hack one up but it's proving VERY difficult to find a body designed for the REVO with side pipe....

Thanx, your's is look'n pretty beastie itself


I can see some options for the body ... different header that'll let you mount the pipe outside the body (could prolly extend one), hack a lid to fit the way you have it or make a custom lid madmaxx style.

I'm gonna hack for now :D Think I'll prolly do a poor job of it too lol, insentive to get the chev lid painted :rockout:

could you bend up a new wire mount so the end of the pipe isn't up so high? It would reduce the amount you would need to cut out of a lid...

you could try to heat mod a lid too, that would be interesting. Skip the heat gun and go simple. Find something you can heat in the oven, make shure you like the shape :) and press it into the lid where you need room for your pipe. Could take a lil creativity to get the press action right but it should be do-able.
