  1. Have you slammed the QD thunder dragon’s suspension? It looks lower than mine. Also is there a way of locking it into one gear? Mine keeps jumping out of gear when it gets air, I’m not fussy about keeping the high low gear choices. Must admit it’s fun to drive and even with a 2S battery, it rips along. Thanks for the inspiration to do the brushless conversion. I enjoyed your video clip! Jimbo
  2. I got them off EBay for a tenner, other sellers were asking £20! There were some new QD wheels with tyres on EBay recently.
  3. Hi, Here are a few photos of the brushless conversion of my old QD Thunder Dragon. I got the idea from your YouTube video. it does need refining it’s still just thrown together but it goes super fast compared to running as standard before.
  4. Hi, Thank you for the pictures. I have it running and it goes really quick, it’s only just been put together. I have some some issues with it jumping out of gear occasionally. I think this maybe due to the one bolt. Need a flatter headed bolt as the second bolt obstructed the low gear and it couldn’t be switched from high to low. Need to look at resolving that. Lost a tyre after the first run with my daughter controlling it, so they need gluing on. Bought a Floureon 2S battery which fits in and everything else I followed your photos. It’s exactly the same spec, even the same servo in there. i just need the metal bearings, but have to wait as I’m getting disapproving comments on how much the little car has cost. I will take some photos/video clips of it. Hopefully I can fix this jumping out of gear problem and it will be great fun. Thanks for your help with getting it converted. Jimbo
  5. Thanks I will chop it off and fit a deans male! Nearly there with my first RC car! Thank you, all! Jimbo
  6. Hi, Please can you advise me on what I need to connect this battery up to my ESC connection. I have included a photo below. The battery is a deans connection but what the other connection called? Thanks Jimbo
  7. Hi, Please can anyone advise me as I don’t have much knowledge on lipo batteries. I would like to buy a 2s battery for a 7800kv brushless motor and 18a Esc combo. How do I know what to buy? Volts, C rating, Amps? Which brands are good? Any advice would be much appreciated. thanks Jimbo

  9. Brilliant thank you! I have ordered some bolts and it’s getting close to being finished. Pictures soon. My plan was to wrap the motor in insulation tape to make a snug fit. Your idea is much better. Thanks again
  10. Hi Wolfdogstinkus, It’s bee a while, I’m progressing with my QD Thunder Dragon brushless conversation, steering nearly there just needs some minor tweaks to the threaded bar. I have received the motor and Esc from China went for the Hobbywing 2030 12t, now I understand your comments on can size. How did you secure the can in the car as it’s slightly narrower than the original? Thanks Jimbo bought this on eBay for £32
  11. Thanks for the photos....I can’t wait to get my old Thunder Dragon QD running again and it should handle better and be so much faster after the brushless conversion. The photos really help me understand what I need to do. Much appreciated! I’m sure I’ll need help again as I bound to get stuck. Really enjoying tinkering with things. Once my little Thunder Dragon is built I’d like to buy something 2nd hand but bigger. Photos will be posted to show my progress of my T/D QD conversion and all the mistakes I may make along the way!
  12. Thanks to both of you for your replies. I’m in talks with the guy from eBay regarding the gold wheels for my old thunder dragon QD, fingers crossed his dimensions match mine.
  13. Hello, please could anyone help, I’m after some advice on replacing the wheels on my very old QD thunder dragon? I’m looking to go brushless but the rear wheels are seriously tired. Any suggestions would be amazing. I have bought some 60D rally block tyres which I would like to still use if possible? I’m new to this and doing the build for my daughter she is 6. Thanks
