What’s the cheapest way to hit 100MPH?
What car would you buy?
What car would you buy?
I’m not interested in smoking any ESCs lol What would be a conservative gear ratio and system for a 100MPH run?I have just as much fun,if not more with detta,not as scard to crash it..an it faster than in shorter area than any bigger car..I've done 0-122mph-0 in 1200ft in my neighborhood with detta..to do 100 cheap,dettonly needs a system, spool,an that's about it..it'll most likely get crashed Bad before your get there unless somewhat experienced in speed,I crashed alot before reaching 100....I just redid mine cause I maxed system out..installed about the biggest system possible in a detta in the last couple hours..got some work to finish,bout burnt mmx8s up today on a 4s pass..esc temp went from 70 degress to 196 degrees in about 11 seconds on a 135mph 4s pass...esc had a 4s fan on it too....crazy....so back in with xlx2see what it'll do tomorrow...this car will smoke any car I've ever had 0-120mph.its insane..still currently fastest 3s,4s vendetta
Mm2 an tp3640 3400-3900kv 3s ya might get there, definitely do it on 4s +I’m not interested in smoking any ESCs lol What would be a conservative gear ratio and system for a 100MPH run?
Is it also possible on
But is it the cheapest? Sounds like the OP already has a Vendetta and a tight budget. Speculation but, one based on the questions.
Do you have any ideas that would get close to the 100MPH mark? Your comment was spot on BTW.But is it the cheapest? Sounds like the OP already has a Vendetta and a tight budget. Speculation but, one based on the questions.
I'm no expert but, I've learned to "Over power and under volt". Could the OP get the same results from a stock 4S system on 3S? Or stock 6S system on 4S? A lot cheaper to buy new pullouts here or from Jennys.
The bigger question is whether the stock internals will hold up? What have you done to yours to handle that powerhouse? If the list is long, it's not budget friendly either. Just my .02.
I’d say the answer is likely the opposite because of ohm’s law. It’s more expensive to go 100mph on 4S than it is on 6S. Not counting batteries.I'm no expert but, I've learned to "Over power and under volt". Could the OP get the same results from a stock 4S system on 3S? Or stock 6S system on 4S?

What is the 1/7 scale car?Maybe it could do it in the vendetta with a RTR type ESC that is low cost.
The problem is the ESCs that can put out the big amperage needed for 110+ mph speeds are expensive and won't fit the "cheap" build budget. The Corrally 6s esc idea above might be good.
If you want to go under 100mph the price is pretty cheap but going over 100 mph gets pricey..... You will also need quality LiPos which also get pricey. Going fast and not spending money just don't go together.
I bought a used Typhon 6s for $260 with no radio and put a limitless v1 spool in there with a set of GRP tires on it and already had my own radio and 6s lipo to reach 96.5 mph. That is about the cheapest speed I have seen done.
Right now I have a 1/7 scale car with a TP4070cm and XLX2 running 146 mph on 4s
The power of the XLX2 is insane!
