Let’s see those 3s/mega screamers out there !! My Newest project the typhon mega ! I’m gonna change those shocks ,metal spur,aluminum shafts and a blx 185 esc/motor combo from a typhon v4 so it should be a blast on the dirt track ! I did the same to the vendetta and my brother did a mega infraction up we put all the goodies on em and man are they fun! I’ll post up pics of the vendetta and this typhon project …please post pics I’d love to see what others have done to the vendetta and what performance they achieved as well as the mega/3s infraction and typhon !

What are u using for gears in the diffs? Or what diffs? I k ow my vendetta metal internals and ring gear and the typhon has plastic like the infraction so I’m anticipating problems with that ..I got the metal spur dor the slipper in the typhon I’m gonna keep the slipper in it cause it’s gonna be a SC dirt rig ,I locked the vendetta soool .you seem like you have this platform figured out .. good stuff!
Picked this up too……

I've run plastic diffs up until 2 days ago when I blew rear diff on 5s.your vendetta is going airborne cause rear-end is squating at 90mph.the second rear squats lower than front I'll go airborne. Here's 1st 4s hit from detta other day...waiting on new 4s packs..should get 130s easy on 4s...

Nice rigs! And runs! Can I ask what springs or shocks or what u did to stop the rear from squatting? I was thinking limitless front shocks all around ….I’ll post up pics of my vendetta I have metal diffs also …it’s so frustrating because it has so much more in it on 4s and I haven’t even done a 6s pass yet 😣

I've got 5 speedcars,none of them have shocks...I'd try putting a set of tbuckles on rear an give it another try
By the time ya have super stiff shocks on them the shocks are so stiff that they do nothing for you anymore,besides put tons of tension on suspension..with links no tension an also adjustable.

The @K-BASH shock delete totally works! Done this. to my mega infraction with Spektrum 150a 3900kv combo. Short 600ft View attachment 257107 controllable PB run on 3s @76.7 mph. Dropping a TP 3840kv motor in it this weekend.
Bro that 3840kv will need some power to run it..is it the 4050 or the 3650

Anything smaller than a castle 8s esc will be HOT quikly..these motors are amp hogs.i haven't personally tried this motor,but from my experience with the tp high kv motors they require lots of amps from esc.i love my 3650-3080kv.it'll work most all 6s escz to there limits.maybe firma150 will run with them better than the more unlimited castle escz...🤷‍♂️

This truck looks sooooooo badazz
I've been running 3650-3080kv in mine lately, love this motor...the 3650s are great for this platform.with being a 4500w motor,being 36mm ,420grams make the work great in these cars..
@ChrisC update us on run I'm really curious how it runs together.if it doesn't cut out it scream....just watch esc temps..
