  1. Sticky Thread Sticky: SteveR1960's ESC Spreadheet

    I have created a compilation of readily available ESCs suitable for 1/16th scale and above. The link is to an Excel workbook with three spreadsheets. Note the tabs on the lower left when you open it. The ESCs are mostly designed for 1/10th scale, but most will fit well in 1/16th scale. There is...

  5. Stock parts for servos... Where?

    Yea, I'm keeping the stock gear. Why? I'm not a racer, but use them to 'perform' with my RC tanks. But I've got a ~bit~ of a problem. I got all my LAV's used, and only one of the trio came with a screw to mount the servo arm! Yep, that tiny M1.8x4 TP screw. Its NOT part of the replacement...

  7. Upgrading the Nano Dragon's ESC to 120A FET's w/heat sink

    This one is simple enough. Probably easier then a FET stack on an xmod. Here's what you need, but of course....some clippers, solder, copper braid, etc., will be helpful. First rip your old FET's off like a wild animal, like you hate your old FET's for they are stinky and weak.

  8. Malfunctioning radio system

    So I recently put a brushless system into my MIST (Wraith and Quark), and used a Nanodragon Tx and a 27mhz AM Rx from Toyeast. Everything works normally and fine until the car gets about 15-20ft away from the Tx. Then the radio loses control of the car, and the car will continue moving on its own...
