  1. Great post, and very good resto job there! Out of curiosity, since this is an original Vanquish, and it had clearly been used in the past, did you find that the infamous G part was cracked anywhere when you disassembled the buggy? Part B of the question: Did you originally use any locktite around that area when you first built it? Was there any residue when you disassembled it? I'm developing a theory and a real-life case like yours would help me prove or disprove it.
  2. Slightly off-topic, but since this topic is closed for the most part, would you mind showing us your ride @DPR250R? I happen to be a fan of how the Dark Impact looks, so I'd like to see what you did with yours.
  3. Then there MUST be something wrong with the setup. The Top Force can handle a lot more than a Sport Tuned. Getting a steel gearset made without first identifying what's breaking the plastic gears will just transfer the force somewhere else causing breakage there instead. Check your pinion mesh, and check that the rear gearbox cover is not loose and jamming the gears together on acceleration/deceleration.
  4. To my knowledge, motors do not have thermal protection. They'd rather just heatsoak and then burn out lol. What's likely happening is that your HW1060 is going into limp mode, which is apparently quite a common issue. I leave it to others on here with more experience to give you options as to what you can do about it. I believe installing a capacitor is one of the possible solutions, but I'm not speaking from first hand experience.
  5. I had always wondered if it was a good idea to put 'open can' brushless motors in offroad vehicles. Seems like the dust would eat them alive in no time, but I may be wrong. At least in that regard the Tamiya motors are relatively protected against the elements with their fully covered cans. The Surpass Rocket v3 is pretty open from the front, and the v4 is just wide open everywhere (for example). Does that make a difference at all?

  7. Ha ha That is so me right now! For what it's worth, I'm still here, albeit much less active than before. But that's mostly because I'm undergoing a major change in life that's keeping me away from RC entirely. I know this post came out of nowhere, but I figured I'd take this chance to explain what 'happened' to me. I still visit TC daily, but it's mostly as a lurker until I regain stability and get back into the groove. Cheers guys,
  8. How much did you need to lengthen your servo cable?
  9. Seeing an RR legend on an FF03 chassis just blows so many fuses for me.
  10. If mine turns out half as good as yours has, I'd call it a win .
  11. Here's a picture of my current daily driver: ...nothing. I walk to work, I walk to the gym, I walk to nearby restaurants, and I walk to the beach, so I don't need a car.
