  1. This is an accurate statement. Not only good controllable performance in lighter vehicles, but they are pretty popular in the scale and crawler scene as well. ( For all the same reasons mentioned above )
  2. Update on the LaTrax 7575x 370 brushed motor. This thing is a Beast in Dancing Rider/ Dual Rider. Right now I’m running 100%Stock internals in the gearbox including the plastic Press On pinion and No issues with over powering the drivetrain. Performance wise I have a 3 Wheeled Rocket on my hands now. On 2S Lipo I could legitimately use a Wheely bar. Im having to re learn to drive the trike again. Even with throttle limiter set to 50% on radio it is faster than the stock motor was! Did I mention it’s only about $10 USD and is a direct bolt in? :)
  3. I don’t know if anyone has mentioned it yet. The Traxxas LaTrax part 7575x is a 370 motor I dropped one in my Dual Rider last night. It’s got plenty more speed without overpowering the whole chassis and gearbox. They are about $10 on eBay and a direct bolt in .
  4. So far no pinion slipping with the stock press on plastic pinion . Soon I will be upgrading to a proper grub screw pinion when they arrive
  5. Mine has 2 vehicles in our collection she considers “hers” I built the G6-01 King Yellow for her since she works in education. (Adjunct College English Professor, I know college freshman don’t ride a school bus to class, but the sentient is still there .) and An SCX24. 2020 has taught us both to take an active Interest in the other’s respective hobbies. She started actively driving and playing with RC and has taught me to start using the new sewing machine . I’m planning to apply that knowledge to start making Lucha Libre wrestling masks
  6. Welcome to the forum. I can’t say I have much expertise on the Blackfoot/ SRB chassis in general. I’ve never owned one, but the suggestions above all seem like solid upgrades. Nice to se your partner supporting your hobby and buying you the kit. Hopefully they're just as understanding when and if you go on a deep dive into upgrading and modifying. LOL
  7. Switching to Deans of XT 60 is a switch you will not regret. If you don’t already have soldering skills it is a little intimidating at first, though.
  8. I’ve used “cheap” sensor less brushless systems before from GoolRC and and Onyx. performance on 2S is pretty. Some of the cheaper sensorless systems can shudder and cog a bit in some applications , which can make lower speed precision and control a bit of a problem. Other than that they can be quite brilliant. that’s to say nothing of better Brushless systems
  9. I’m convinced mine went the Long Way ‘Round and got stuck in the Suez
  10. I have a Uni Jetstream. And I love it .however I stopped carting it daily because it has a hairline crack in the body where the two halves crew together and I don’t want it to split in half
  11. But this is how my pens are sitting in sleeve pocket right now.
  12. I don’t know if anyone has mentioned it yet. The Traxxas LaTrax part 7575x is a 370 motor I dropped one in my Dual Rider last night. It’s got plenty more speed without overpowering the whole chassis and gearbox. They are about $10 on eBay and a direct bolt in .
  13. I had my local hobby dealer order my kit. And one of the first things he said after his initial awe of the concept wore off was “They should make a version with 2 wheels in front “
  14. Alloy motor mount and steering/ suspension springs for Dual Rider trike . installed them all as well as upgraded to the LaTrax 7575x motor. And took it for a rip around the living room (since the front drive is covered in snow ) RC Mart finally Came through. Or rather Hong Kong Post came through. RC Mart order history shows the items shipped March 10
