Thought I'd start a thread for my truck. I've been following the Kraton thread on ultimate rc but can't post over there since registration is closed. I'm a fan of Thomas's videos and would like to match his components and mods eventually.
So far, I've had the following things break:
front ball knuckle cracked
wing mount snapped
two stock servos failed - one gears stripped and another fried
What I've changed:
500k fluid in the center diff and 100k in front and rear
TD330786 spring in rear
TD330432 springs in front
50 weight shock oil
MT4 wheelie bar
T-Maxx body posts 4914R
Parma Nissan Titan Body 10127
Pro-Line Big Joe 2
Savox SC-1256TG is supposed to arrive today
I've mostly been running 6s with smc 7200mah packs. This being my first electric rc car in 20 years, I'm blown away by how long these run. My chassis got scraped up pretty bad, running on the street, before I changed the shock oil and springs. I found a small, local bmx track and the dirt is much easier on the truck. It's a blast jumping it 15 to 20 feet over and over - I just want to start working on front and back flips eventually. Since I got the Kraton, I got my little girl a Stampede and different neighbors have bought a Slash TSM, Yeti XL, Typhon. So, we're going to be having some fun races down our cul-de-sac street and over at Cranebrook Park (anyone live near the Woodlands, TX?).
I'm thinking about getting the quicrun 8BL-150. The hope is that it would be more responsive switching from forward to reverse and help with jumping. Can anybody that has it confirm? The other upgrade I'm looking at is a leopard 4092 motor, but I can't find the 1730kv in stock anywhere. How would the 1480kv be instead? Or, is there another good value alternative?
