Slim n Busty
« on: March 10, 2017, 07:33:19 PM »
How's it goin..

Just joined up to get some info on my first 1/5 scale im about to buy...very soon i hope...

Already own a Traxxas Rustler VXL which for some reason continues to cost me $$$ so i'm getting away from electric and going to give the petrol a go..I tend to obsess over a certain hobby for a while then move onto something else after a while but eventually come back to it..

I'm about to start a thread asking for opinions on which way to go into my first 1/5 so jump in and give your opinion..

Thanks

If you can afford it go straight to Losi 5t roller and buy a motor to suit Race 30.5 or bash even bigger

Thanks mate, one of my options was going to be the 30 deg North DDT roller with a Zenoah 32 engine & pipe with a pair of solid servos...but i do worry about the quality of the parts as ive read alot of negative things on clones...

It seemed every time I drove my rustler something broke and 20 min runtime on a 3s lipo isn't a lot..they are crazy fast but..doing 60/70 kmh then nail it and they will wheelie out of control..
