G'day all
« on: November 18, 2017, 04:39:32 PM »
How are we all today?
I'm Adam, I'm looking to get into large scale racing and I've just started a 1/5 baja build.
Any tips or tricks will be appreciated

Welcome mate!
Racing is great fun and just a few tips is good servos and alloy clutch bell carrier is a good start the plastic carriers warp or melt with high heat temps other good tip is just have fun and enjoy it and always ask for help i find almost everyone in 1/5 scale very helpful.

Cheers lads. No ozzy I haven't yet. Will definitely be keen to once my build is finished.
A mate of mine who does 1/4 scale speedway at the penfield raceway is helping with my build.
What sort of racing happens at Monarto?
Cheers wrangler, I'll make sure we use those bits in the build.
 
Build so far:
Kraken v1 chassis
26cc motor (not sure on brand yet)
Will have an ikilly2
Transponder (eventually)
Servos I'll have a double check when I go back to work on it some more, pretty sure they were hitec though.
Flysky gt3b tx
Fair bit of alloy hop ups on the chassis

Sounds like you heading down the right path with it and hitec servos are great its all i run in my cars.
We are off road at SALS and great fun and 2wd outlaw (baja) is our biggest class so plenty of guys to get advice from.
