    Old vorteks tranny vs new

    Hello to all. So im upgrading my Vorteks mega to brushless. Bought a 4 pole 3500kv motor with a 60amp esc and a 22t pinion/ 87t spur running on 2s lipo. So here's the question. After much research and endless reading it seems that the older Vorteks mega came with all composite gears (similar to...

    ESC blinking when connecting 3S LiPo

    Hi all, My Vorteks ESC is blinking blue when connecting an 11.1V 3S 4000mAh LiPo. A 7.2 NiMH is working fine, as well as a 7.4V 2S 4000mAh LiPo. No issues at all. Just the 11.1V one is giving me issues. I wonder if 11.1V is actually supported by the BLX ESC I'm having. It's the Arrma BLX80...

    Raider vs Vorteks for bashing

    Hello there, first post here... I'm new to the hobby and looking for a good entry level basher. Being and old school guy I think the Raider looks pretty darn good but strictly for bashing, I guess the Vorteks (mega) would be a better choice. What do you guys think? Thanks, Ben

    Steering gone....

    All of a sudden I have no steering. If I adjust steering trim, servo moves to trim steering, but wheel on transmitter does nothing. Tried changing steering servo and throttle servo connection around and got no love. Trigger would not move steering servo nor would wheel engage throttle. I am...
