I have one change that might be coming. I am waiting for parts from my machinist though and I need time to test.

The car worked great at the comp. I either have an ESC problem or its from me tweaking the settings in my ESC. My ESC acted like it was hitting low voltage cutoff when my batteries got to 12.2v so I had to take multiple repairs at the comp.

No worries mang. I am guessing its my fault for messing with the throttle curves. It worked perfect before. I cant see an ESC burning up or whatever from just sitting.

Has anyone else built 1 of these yet? Thoughts if some one did?
Have you put anymore time on your rig and your thoughts, do you still think it better than your pro? Id also like to know how your setting up your shocks to get it to sit so low

Nobody has built one yet. I got a handful of orders and they should all be going out this week so you might hear more soon.

I have not had time in life to do anything. I work and go to sleep. Sometimes I mix a shower and eating in there.

I’ll have my parts coming to you this week. Had to remake my own magnum motor because a customer bought it before I could build up! LOL!

I've been working on applying Erik's 3 link theory to the scale part of this hobby. With Eriks approval of coarse! After a month of taking 2 steps forward and one step back and a lot of testing here is a few small videos of how all that work paid off! My ascender crawling a test board with it at 50, 55, and 60 degrees with no TT. Thanks for sharing with all of us Erik!

OK guys. This is my first attempt at youtube posting:

https://youtu.be/iUD5vwCjxhg

This is the first one from back at 50 degree ramp slope.

https://youtu.be/6ix4XgqeYlU

Here is a post from side at 50 degrees.

https://youtu.be/dHkJShaGUrk

This one is from side at 55 degrees,

https://youtu.be/hWMQlHTOec0

This is at 60 degrees.

Ernie

I think Erik got tires of fighting the good fight and doesnt come here often, let alone update his threads...
He went full dark side and moved to FB.

The car does well but I have had a lot of issues during the comps. I am yet to finish a comp without an issue. Mostly electronics failures. I hope thats resolved with this next comp...

Even with the failures, I think I got 4th at worlds? No excuses though.

No changes that I want to make. I just need more time to try and drive it.
