i raced with some local stuff back in the mid 90's with everything from 1/10th scale...1/8th...Bolink Legends...some drag racing and everything else but im slowly getting back into it. Picked up a 2wd slash about a year and half ago, threw a bunch of chassis and suspension mods at it then its been sitting on the garage wall for 8 months. My lipo's went bad from sitting so gotta order more and im about to go brushless on it. The this thing pops up......

That is sick!

bigdave03svt I really thought I would hate it but the more I look at it and see it run I'm really digging it. Of course I'm going to wait and see what mods come out for it .....and of course it needs brushless power lol

Just picked up another Axial SMT-10 but this time a Grave Digger edition. Put some Jconcepts Tribute wheels on it with Jconcepts Golden Years tires in Gold Compound. The green beadlock rings are Crawford Performance Engineering beadlocks and Clark Planetary covers to round off the green look.

Added an Axial aluminum servo horn(servo is shit though so need to grab a Savox 1230) and the front sway bar kit. Still on the stock V2 electronics for now - brushed motor 12T 550 size and a 12T Dynamite ESC. Will add some Beef Tubes down the road to keep the axle housings from snapping. Brushless is a hit or miss on these, some blow the ring and pinions up and others never have an issue. So im on the fence about throwing too much power into it. On the 16 tooth pinion gear and the 12T motor it has some speed and isnt overpowered.

I started in 2001 with Kyosho nitro helicopters. Then Traxxas T-Maxx, 4-Tec.

Got the rock crawling bug after that. Ran local, state, and national 2.2 pro class comps. I still have 2 pro class rigs, not gaylers ( scalers) lol. But I have also run scale class, and sportsman. I find pro class tons more fun.

Also still have 2 drones, 2 VTA class onroad cars, and a Losi scte short course.truck.

Just recently learned about street eliminator class that is drawing me back to the hobby.

I can afford to be competitive with rc's. My budget does not allow me to even come close to 500hp in a real car.

I got back into it again at pandemic. I currently have a tekno sct410, traxxas rustler, associated t5m, losi mini t 2.0. The new losi mini t 2.0 is fun as hell its probably my favorite one.

Top to Bottom:
Miss Geico- 60mph
Zelos Twin- 86 mph
Spartan- 35 mph
Zonda- 90 mph
Fightercat- Not tested

I’ve since been outta the game but it was sure as hell fun and expensive at the same time to go fast. I didn’t really try with my V hulls, I have another that is not pictured, a Proboat Voracity E that I got up to 50 mph but really didn’t make an effort to get the best out of them. The Zonda did only 90 before I had to cut out due to running out of lake.
