  1. I bought it specifically because it is 1200kv... i do not want a Blackfoot that screams down the road at 30mph. there are other models of the QuicRun Fusion SE that run at higher KV. (1800kv and 2300kv)
  2. sorry, kind of missed the point... BUT... with the luck i have had with 3 of the Tamiya brushless ESCs dying on me, i don't use Tamiya brushless ESCs anymore. I recently installed a Hobbywing QuicRun Fusion SE 1200kv combo unit in my OG Blackfoot. Have not taken it out yet to see how well it works.
  3. thanks everyone... i know i went radio silent there for a bit, but it took a while to figure out the landing legs in a way that i liked.
  4. I am calling this finished. I finally figured out how to make the landing legs on the trailers work, got everything painted, added the few remaining decals, and checked that everything still works.
  5. There is a nice gentleman on Shapeways that makes some killer scale parts for these. I love mine. https://www.shapeways.com/shops/3dcooking i also bought machined aluminum 5 spoke wheels and chrome metal front and rear bumpers to match the box art.
  6. It isn't Tamiya, it isn't a car... but it is R/C, and it is my birthday present for this year, it arrived in the mail today, all the way from britain. Don't expect it to be built any time soon.
  7. there is a 1:1 sand scorcher https://www.motor1.com/news/263669/tamiya-full-size-sand-scorcher/
  8. I notice in the photo you posted of its guts, it still has the mechanical speed control as well...
  9. based on the statements that both Saito2 and bRIBEGuy said regarding Traxxas' policies, I had to research what all that meant... Having read up on it, i don't think i will ever buy any Traxxas merchandise.
  10. Saito, i did not take it that way at all... i simply wanted to let the viewers of this thread know that Traxxas had already tried to make a "Monster Truck", and it was a bad try. I do agree that the TRX-4 is a much better looking vehicle, but like most people here, i buy the Tamiya products primarily because i like building kits. on a side note, i would not be the least bit surprised if the TRX-4 f150 body is the same as the one used for the Bigfoot.
  11. https://traxxas.com/products/models/electric/36034-61bigfoot-classic and no, i don't think they knocked it out of the park... it is a two wheel drive blashpemy based on what i think is a stampede chassis. BLECH
  12. Its all about re-use. they now have a dozen different cabs on basically the same chassis. just like the OG ford f150 and blazing blazer... instead of creating a real truck chassis, they put them on the same chassis as the sand scorcher
  13. I built one of these in 2018... i like the repsol colors, so i made my own stickers, but the major colors (blue and orange) are actually paint. I built it bone stock other than the paint job. i did use the same quicrun mini esc that you are using... i do not remember what steering servo i used, but i can check and see if i can figure it out if you would like to know. i also remember that i am using a tactic micro 2 channel receiver, and a 1300 mah 2s lipo.
  14. to be brutally honest, i wish i had just bought a set of the shortest blank frame rails i could find, cut them to the right length, and drilled all new holes. except that is 20-20 hindsight. i had no idea what i was doing to start with, so i realized this about halfway through getting the front axle re-aligned. there are a whole lot of holes in the frames now that don't need to be there.
