  1. Just put a 2S lipo in there. It will give you more power across the discharge curve.
  2. SRB are over strung so the dampers do very little in the way of damping all that spring force anyway. .
  3. The lighter car will be faster. It will accelerate faster. It will just feel a bit more zippy and a stopwatch or speedo with show this. I look forward to seeing your video.
  4. The reference point was always an old Grasshopper not your optimized Schumacher.
  5. It will be better than NiMh, and give a noticeable boost rather than getting a hot motor, that's where I was coming from. Anyway, you crack on and order all that stuff then make a video and post it on youtube.
  6. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/142153270214?var=441223315629&mkevt=1&mkcid=28&chn=ps&norover=1&mkevt=1&mkrid=710-134428-41853-0&mkcid=2&itemid=441223315629_142153270214&targetid=1140163973489&device=c&mktype=pla&googleloc=1006596&poi=&campaignid=12128858833&mkgroupid=117045676459&rlsatarget=pla-1140163973489&abcId=9300480&merchantid=114898649&gclid=CjwKCAiAu8SABhAxEiwAsodSZDK4vMV5Bd6CuQ1E_MfG8xdD2L8KhcyxaJoBx47KSjuMvEFn09IScRoC9aYQAvD_BwE
  7. An adapter weighs 5g. Great things plug adapters as they widen the scope of pack you can use.
  8. There are loads of them online. Mine were designed to go in a TamTech Gear. They fits perfectly inside my Sand Scorcher or I pop them in a case to run in the Thunder Shot etc. 85g Here's one at 91g. https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-nano-tech-1500mah-2s-35-70c-lipo-pack.html?wrh_pdp=7 Sorry if you've learned something you didn't know.
  9. Regardless of what Glen does or doesn't know, his Facebook groups has loads of people who run their vintage buggies. Clearly you think you know everything there is to know so I invite you to the Legends groups so you can see my stuff and share your knowledge with others. So get over there.
  10. I'm not posting pictures on here as it's too much agro. Get yourself over to Tamiya Legends on Facebook and introduce yourself and I'll post pictures there for you. Current inventory of vintage Tamiya: x2 Sand Scorchers, x2 Hot Shots, 1 Super Shot, x2 Thunder Shots, x1 Terra Scorcher, x1 Porsche 959. All are running except the 959. Lipo wise, I've got a few 1500 (85mm x 35mm x15mm) and even one 1300 2s. If you can't find a 1500 2s via google then I don't know what to tell you.
  11. That's complete and utter rubbish. Unloading all that weight reduces the stress on everything. It's simply Newtonian physics. I'm not the one who has had to mod the cr*p out of his vintage buggies due to crashes. Anyway, the original question was about putting a hotter motor and I said you can get better performance from running a light 2S.
  12. Because they are old vintage cars and I want to run them but not into the ground. I'm not stripping them down every 10min, you big silly goose! If I want to run for an hour I'll get my Slash out or my 1/5th scale IC.
