I finished up my M2C Racing chassis swap yesterday and today I decided to give it a little test run. I've always wondered how far I can jump the Arrma trucks so I got out all the necessary equipment!

I ran dual 3s Turnigy Graphene packs, 5000mAh. They are really big and heavy and just barely fit in the tray. After many attempts the best I could manage was 60' and it came on a back flip.

The ground isn't level so it was probably more like 57 or 58 feet. I'm going to see how far I can get my other 6s trucks (Notorious, Kraton, Talion). Right now I think the ling distance champ will be the Talion. It is bone stock and therefore the lightest of them all. What do you guys think? The Kraton is really heavy and the Noto isn't too far behind it. I'll keep you posted 👍😎

60 feet! The Notorious is probably out of the running as it would likely twist and turn in the air. The Kraton stock and the Talion would likely be similar. The Kraton with the M2C might have an advantage, as the added weight might actually work to propel it further, and keep it flat off the ramp. My guess is 75 feet. Just under for the stock Talion.

Hey, I just picked up the Typhon and man I dislike the tires. What size and type do you have on yours?
Proline Badlands buggy tires. I love them. Excellent grip in dirt and I can easily rotate the truck in the air. Will destroy your lawn, lol.

I don’t think I’ll see much farther with any of my other trucks. Certainly not another 15 feet, but we’ll see 😎

First time poster and new Talion owner... looking for 2 x 3s batteries (so that I can run them in other RC cars for the kids) and noticed your above quote.

Are these the ones you have?

hobbyking is easiest at the moment for me. Just wanted to make sure they would fit. Also need to figure out best way to make myself a ramp...

60 feet is impressive...


Thanks!

Mine are 65C discharge rate, so no. Those are different. This is what mine looks like:
