The TSL's are an excellent tire for sure. I have ran them on several trips now. The reviews on the Pit Bulls seem to be much more mixed. I think foams are really important to them. Their look also polarizes people too... The good news is that I have both now, so I am going to give them a good head to head comparison to see which works better for my vehicle on the terrain I run.

For what its worth, I am running 5.5" CI Double Deuces in the TSL's and DosP's in the Pit Bulls. "thumbsup"

Its basically an oil that displaces water. I am using it for an extra layer of protection encase of water exposure. I am not interested on turning my Wraith into a submarine, just want good splash protection/insurance. DiEzel's Wraith thread has a good write-up with several links to it. 8)

I stole the idea from someone else, so have at it. :ror: "thumbsup"

I also stole or borrowed the idea from you, and it worked out slicker than cat poop. Thanks for the fantastic tip. I would post some pics but I don't seem to have that privledge yet, as I am still fairly new.

Out of curiosity, what size drill bit did you use on the make shift hood mounts?

rojo 12-07-2011 07:10 PM

Got it wired up and did a few test runs today. So far I am really liking the pro4/mmp combo. For those that run it, though, I have one question...

If I ease into the throttle it slowly and steadily begins to move, and then it jumps forward. It only happens from a complete stop. I can get on the throttle and back down to a craw and it is fine?:?: Its almost like it gets a surge of voltage or something?

Besides that I like it. Top-end is about like a stock slash on a 3s lipo. I'm running 0 degrees of timing, sensored only, cheat mode enabled (@ 4 deg). Torque is great, smooth as butter besides the "surge" issue. Drag break is amazing... anything over 80% is really not drivable. Once I get the wiring cleaned up I will get some pictures and video. "thumbsup"

Couldn't tell you honestly. I just looked through my collection until I found the size that matched the shaft and still allowed the threads to bite. "thumbsup"

i like those tyres, rojo

A couple of video's testing out the electronics:

WraithCrawlingRuns.mp4 video by johnroginsky - Photobucket

I am really enjoying this setup... Great speed and still retains some decent crawl-ability on the rocks... 8)

rojo 12-10-2011 05:01 PM

Tons of electronics and wiring to cram under the hood... but I tried to keep it fairly clean. Everything fit in the front except the MMP which got mounted in the rear. Next up it to fab up a new battery mount "thumbsup"

nice man, i like your setup also, i think it has great speed plus good clawling speed. i kinda like the MMP in the rear, if you get a rear tray panel and the MMP is sits tall enough, you could cut away the bit that covers the MMP, and it will look like a cooling fan. i rekon that would loook mightly fine. how are you liking the 4WS.

I think your turtle could easily end up on a fencepost with one quick trigger.:twisted:
I'd be happy with half the speed and twice the control, but I'm loving the vids. Keep posting, we're watching!;-)

Thanks! I have some plans to make the rear look a bit nicer... "thumbsup"

The speed is great fun for sure. It is amazing how well it still crawls though. I am going to increase the drag break a hair more to make crawling a little easier... I could still drop a tooth or two on the pinion gear to help the low speed control, but so far I like it like it is. The Tekin Pro4 is definately a beast, and a perfect match-up to my uses for the Wraith. :twisted:

New batteries came in and they have some serious punch... :shock:

I also made a new battery mount that locks into (and sandwiches) the factory mounting bracket... "thumbsup"

Glad to see your diggin the motor/esc combo. Pretty bad ass isn't it ? Well worth the needed drivetrain upgrades. :ror:

Dig the battery mount you got goin.. Should be able to stuff one of these big dawgs in there - Sky Lipo 4400mAh 11.1V 30C or even 5,000 if you'd like. Great for those long trail runs.. I get bout 45-1:15ish. 13/60.

Thanks!

I will check into those batteries as well... a man can never have too many! lol

As for the Motor/Esc combo... :shock: still no words to describe the fun.

Haven't ran them all the way out yet... I am guessing about 20-30 minutes each. Definitely go 3s. Volt up and gear down!

I finally broke down and got some new links... The 3mm threads on the old ones were just not holding up... :twisted:
