    Granite Speed Run on my 100% stock #GRANITE #BLX 3s #4X4 Truck

    I ran it on a Dynamite 3s 5000maH 11.1V 50c Lipo and was able to get 76KM which is almost 45.5MPH! That's not to bad especially if I run it on a better road vs the wet road I used in front of my house for this run. I bet I can hit 80KM for my next run. Also, make sure you stay connected w/ me on...

    Typhon First speedrun build.. V3 Typhon

    So, I got bit by the speedrun bug a few months ago and thought Id try building my basic blue V3 Typhon 6S into something a little faster. I've been in RC for years and had many vehicles, but never had a dedicated speedrunner. First thing I did for a month was research, and I quickly saw that...

    Typhon Speed runner Typhon 6S ~ UK built fast, not bought fast

    Decided to start this thread as I thought that it might be of some interest and maybe even some help to anyone else trying to use the Typhon 6S for speed runs. Now I'm new to "speed runs" with R/c vehicles so am learning as I go but definitely not new to R/c's having had a whole load of Tamiya...

    Tear/cut in Minokawa Tire. Seeking Repair Recommendations.

    When running Kraton with 6S and speed runs on the beach, I may have run over something sharp. With stock everything, tires were ballooning like crazy (of course). Suddenly, about 1/2 of the foam insert was ejected from a tear/cut in the tire. The cut is a 1/2 inch, straight, fairly clean cut...

    Front Splitter/Bumper Replacement?

    I'm in the process of turning my Talion into a top speed RC, but I have some concerns after taking a bit of a scary front-lift moment and the car nearly back-flipping at WOT. Sure, we have monster rear wings, but I see nearly zero information on something like a front splitter or canards to...

    Typhon Gearing and Lipos

    Just got a Typhon V3. Was running the stock set top except I had a 18T pinion and ran 4s. Got 45mph. Any suggestions on how to get up to 60-70mph without over heating. Just bashing around mainly on road. The ideas I have are 1) 20 / 22 pinion on 4s or 2) Run 6s with 18T pinion Help please
