  1. Rc Mart has a bunch of brushless combo for like 90. Thoughts on that? I think they were hobbywing
  2. Thanks for all the replies. So, I am leaning towards the bz motor. With the price being closer to 50, would you consider going to a brushless combo that goes for 100? Just a thought. Seeing how you have done this before and the switching to brushless had to have come up in your upgrade history. Thanks, Tony
  3. Any suggestions on a good brushed 27t motor then? I thought that the tamiya was a 27t, but looking it up it maybe a 23t. Know I am wondering if the original silver can is faster than the sport tuned. Thanks for all the help
  4. Thanks for the reply. Here are some pics of the interior. So I have a 15t paired with the tamiya sport tuned. Didn't really want to brushless as I'm not sure how the car would hold up. I think a mix of high speed straight and off road would be what I aiming for. It is more fun with the lipo. I think with a 13t would be overly peppy. I'll go back and the forum for the fire dragon pair up. Thank you both
  5. So I finally had a chance to put the 2s lipo battery in today. I had a 15t pinion installed. I had timed the nimh top speed about 20. The lipo top speed was a disappointing 22. Does that seem right? I did the charge the battery yesterday for the first time. Started to rain so I had to wait till this afternoon though. Doesn't seem right that the lipo and nimh results were that close. Thoughts that battery is defective ? Suggestions ?
  6. My parts from rc mart came in so I changed the front shock tower, got an upgraded a5, and changed the rear shock tower. Replaced the tamiya connector with some deans connector (what a difference in response now!) Old MRC Top Gun wasn't responding so I got a radiolink rc6s v2. Great remote with gyro and lots of extra buttons and customization options Installed a light bar on the spoiler. Upgraded the coat hanger shaft with the tamiya propeller shaft. Motor is the Tamiya sport tuned with a 13t pinion Max speed gotten has been around 19 with 4.0 NIMH I had purchased a venom lipo but have been scared to charge and try it.
  7. Sorry for the long delay. Had to go back and forth to get some shocks that worked in the front.

  8. Thanks It was 22 vs 40. I ordered the larger one and then realized that I needed to change the connectors now. Ordered some dean connectors and battery bag. Hopefully by Saturday I will have some updates
  9. Thanks for the follow up. So being in the US, the core rc is unavailable. So two options are Venom 20c 2s 4000mah 7.4 lipo Or Venom 35c 2s 2000mah 7.4 lipo I have a 60am dynamite esc currently Which one would you pick? I just plan on using it occasionally. More to just update and upgrade and make it faster of course. I did order a charger as you suggested. Similar to what you posted and thanks for all the good info Thanks so much
  10. Thank you so much! I had my doubts as well as I did not read anything saying to go brushless I am actually ok with hacking the chasing. With that being said, what #mah would you recommend. I saw that venom has 2000 7.4. Wasn't sure if it would be better to have a 4000 like the core rc. Appreciate the help!
  11. I apologize for the delay in responding. Took some time to order some parts. Got some metal upgrades from rcmart. Front mount and rear mounts. I did some research on the switching to the 2s lipo and had questions. I went to a hobby shop and they said that a brushless motor would be needed and a new esc to see a jump in speed. I already got a sport tuned 540 motor and a dynamite brushed esc. With that being said, is a 2s battery by itself sufficient? Next question would be on suggestions for a good 2s and a charger. Thanks for all the input
  12. Sorry is that better than the 4200 7.2 nimh? Thank you!
  13. Thanks for the reply! Not sure what the 400cst stands for. The monoshock on mine is horrible. Has bolts in it to hold together. Do you know a good replacement? Sorry been away from this for so long. Appreciate the help!
  14. I have my Thundershot that I have tinkered with for some time now. I wanted to get some thoughts on what I could do to make it more faster. I updated the a5 part and added bearings. I took it to a hobby shop and got a dynamite esc and a 4200 nimh battery and charger. I was thinking of adding a different motor but realized that I needed a different pinion gear as well. It still has the original 15t. The shocks are horrible so that probably needs an update. I'm not trying to race or anything just want to have some fun with it again . Any feedback would be great and where to get the items needed. thank you so much!
