Still contemplating keeping it Brushed, but I'm waining.

I feel like if you drive it enough, a good brushless system will pay for itself before longÖ

Iím contemplating if the 2850kv slate motor is going to be enough, or if I should go for the puller pro 3500kvÖ

Aye. Got that same gut feeling.

Thinking a Tekin ROC412 3100hd with a Mamba X to swap from Race to Crawl mode.

I run 4s hv drone racing batteries, one motor is the castle 1415 2400kv, and the other is a puller pro 3500kv. Total gear reduction is about 60:1 and 75:1. Fun reliable trucks once you dump the coin in them.

I'd guess 12 to 15 mph. Not too sure. But seems like I can run as fast as the trucks can go.

If I can get 15ish plus, I think that would be more than sufficient.

Just not sure which setup I want to go with yet.
Thinking a Shifts for steering, and another Servo AF Drag Link servo saver, though I do have a Treal I could use considering I already have the Incision drag link in the kit.

Though I'm not sure I want to direct power. I may go for the new Reefs 900 programmed for steering duty. Dont think I'll be doing too much crawling per se.
Plan is to run it as a True Bomber.....

Side question on Motor... Would the Holmes 540L Revolver be a good option? Hearing they can turn some good RPMs, or have I miss heard. Not too familiar with Holmes gear from personal use.. so need to ask.
Never really had an outrunner except in a small plane.

Rest of the order has been here for a few weeks, but I've been Really busy trying to get things around the yard in order once im home from work..

Lost all 3 of my Roosters 3 weeks ago to a neighbors Jack Russle. Shes a sweatheart and comes right up and over. but if no one is around, the lil bitch is a chicken killer. At least 7 I can attribute to her. She got a hen with my 3 rooster, got a bite on one of my ducks that same day too. Then about 5 weeks ago, she got 3 other chickens in the course of a 2 day in a row visit.

All I can say is she is lucky I'm not keen on Puppy Chowmein or the lil bitch would have been woked up already......

Pic of the goodies. IF I can find a few hours here and there to get it done.

Oh and the fun begins! Looks like a similar list to what I had when I put mine together a few years back. The currie antirock is pretty sweet, but I ran into issues when I upgraded the rear shocks to the Powerstroke XL. Under compression the shocks rotate into the corner of the antirock arms. That may be in part by the HotRacing upper mounts tho. I swapped the top mount location but now it sits really high. Turns out I used too much locktight on those stupid grub screws too and snapped off the tip of the driver. I had to leave it be for a couple months after that happened lol. I was just out in the garage tonight trying to figure out the best way to fix it. Since I can’t find any replacement caps for the shocks, i’ll have to cut up the mount.

cant you put some heat (Soldering iron) on the grub screw and heat it up really well, melting the locktite?

TL;DR: Try applying heat to the screw/screw hole to burn away the locktite before cutting anything up. +1 for Timmahh' suggestion.

I've had to heat the grub screws on the pinion gears (the one on the motor) of both the GateKeeper and Bomber, both RTR. I used a butane torch but a soldering iron would be more accurate.

The GK didn't have much locktite, but what was there was holding on a little too well.

The Bomber on the other hand? The assembly tech just have dropped the grub screw in red locktite and figured "ah, what the heck" dropped the gear in there too, then dipped the motor shaft as well, for good measure. That gear was a nightmare trying to remove, and when it finally came off everything was a burnt locktite mess.

I probably should had started there a long time agoÖ I snapped the tip off my old integy driver inside the grub screw. Thatís when I set it aside for a while because I wasnít sure how I wanted to tackle it. Last night I decided to give it another go. First trying to drill the screw out from the other side. It looked promising until the bit snapped. Ultimately I trashed the shock mount to release the shock from it. Atleast Iím not stuck buying a new set of Powerstroke XLs. I just reinstalled the stock upper mount and put everything back together.

If I decide to go with another set of aluminum uppers, Iíll def upgrade from the grub screw. The shock still runs into the antirock arm, so its back to the center hole (vanquish trailing arms).

Funny how Bomber builds end up breaking the tips off of tools - I broke the tip off a MIP driver in a grubscrew on my MIP driveshafts, and then broke the tip off a Wiha driver trying to attach an aluminum tranny housing to the skid. Those parts are still sitting there, YEARS later. I built up a different set of components into the one I drive now - and someday will need to test the miniscule screw extractor kit I bought and see if I can recover any of those parts and finish Bomber #2. It's got full SSD Diamond AR60s, MIP drivetrain, Hot Racing tranny housing full of steel gears from both Hot Racing and Robinson Racing. But it's just in pieces - gathering dust, some sorta assembled, and some totally jacked-up.

(sniff...)

To be fair, I would have done the same in the past. I learned about burning locktite on this forum.

I suppose it's better to ruin a cheapish set of shock mounts than buying a pair of expensive shocks just for the caps.

I've read, (somewhere, I don't remember where) the Traxxas GTR (slash, bandit, etc.) caps fit but I haven't tested it myself.
