  1. Hi Does the V2 box work with the 80a turbo esc (non waterproof) https://hobbyking.com/en_us/trackstar-roar-approved-1-10th-stock-class-brushless-esc-and-motor-combo-13-5t.html?wrh_pdp=1 https://hobbyking.com/en_us/trackstar-turbo-program-box-v2.html Thanks, Kris
  2. I went with the trackstar 13.5 combo in the end. Was a pain to get running, the sensor cable was wired back to front but sorted that. Then the receiver kept dropping signal until I got a new nimh. Runs ok for now. Just bought a racing fighter black edition which I like the look of, it comes with torque tuned and a tble02, but I also have a super stock tz and the sniper rv20 burning a hole in a box somewhere. Rv20 is rated to 20t but do I need to consider amps or anything when powering the tz? And is the tz enough of an upgrade over a torque tuned for bashing or am I just as well to fit the cheaper motor. It’ll be just for fun. Any suggestion of what pinion pitch for the racing fighter? I have bags of 0.5 pinions for the dark impact.
  3. Mines sensored :/ You have to brake to a stop, come off the trigger, then reapply to reverse. Annoying but not world ending. My old esc you could hold reverse and it would brake then go straight into reverse. anyway the issue has gone, I charged a new 7.2v battery (measured it at 8.4v) and no problems for the five minute testing - no singal drops and no low voltage cut off
  4. Its the 80A trackstar. Also getting low voltage cut off light with a full battery. I’ve got a couple of escs and brushed motors and a couple of batteries. Only one rx and tx though. I have a tble02s which I think will run the 13.5 brushless motor, it’s just a major PITA as I’ve twice soldered the trackstar esc directly to the motor - I just want a plug and play!!!!! Tempted to put in the super stock tz with my basic rv20 esc and be done with it.
  5. Never any problems with the old silver can!
  6. Thanks, it was calibrated but calibrated again anyway. Still keeps cutting out. I cut the trim back and it was a little better, but then started cutting out even more, like once every 5 seconds. Even with half throttle. Tried resetting the connection between the tx and rx and that had problems also.
  7. Cue car meets curb :/ Just fitted a trackstar esc and motor, worked fine for two minutes before it decided to stay on full throttle until it hit something. I was a couple or metres away so not out of range, it wouldn’t respond to braking or even just coming off the throttle. When I picked it up it was still going then it stopped, and started working normally again. Also noticed a low voltage warning light even though battery is showing 7.4v. What gives? Bit reluctant to take it out again
  8. Are there good and bad xt60 and gold plugs or are the cheap ones on eBay as good as anything else
  9. Hi is there any benefit to fitting deans or XT60 connectors with a nimh battery? Ill be running an 80A esc and 13.5 brushless in one car and standard tble02s and torque tuned in another Thanks, Kristian
  10. The tble is far cheaper in the UK, £15 v £38 for the 10bl120
  11. And https://www.modelsport.co.uk/speed-passion-1-10-competition-mmm-series-13-5r-bl-motor/rc-car-products/368333
  12. Thanks, will order the tble02s. Two motors I've seen, trackstar or quicrun 13.5t, the spiel suggests the quicrun should be run on lipo only....? https://hobbyking.com/en_us/turnigy-trackstar-13-5t-sensored-brushless-motor-3040kv-roar-approved.html?___store=en_us https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.ebay.co.uk%2Fulk%2Fitm%2F173391963950
  13. Should add I’m planning to hike the motor up a bit, a 10t or 13t (.0 or .5)
  14. Hi After reading lots of posts from 2012 about how hard it is to get hold of the five stars steel shaft for the Dark Impact, I wager I have zero hope in 2019. Only option is to use some decent grease on the gears - what is the recommendation? I have the slipper gear on order hopefully that will help. Thanks, Kris
