Default My hopped up rc18t

Here is my setup . I had do a lot of fileing and grinding to get the parts to work right . The universal drive would fit in to the ball diff. joint. When I got them to fit and I tried to run the truck it would roll riht over when you I tried to turn . SoI had to file down the pins on the universal so it would slide in and out of the diff. jont. It does not roll over at all now. Tell me what you think of my setup ?

Looks good, but looks can be deceiving. Get us a vid.

I have the CPB Monster Pack with Dean's connectors, MIP CVDs, steel turnbuckles, and FT shocks.

I use mine for late night drunken figure 8 races.

I think you went a little crazy on yours!

First two empties are your "cones". Line up with a can, 3-2-1 go, we do a straight first, then start the figure 8.

Hit a can and start over, hit 3 cans you lose. Sometimes hitting a can on purpose can help so you don't lose the race.

Parts do break though, the head on collisions are hysterical!

Good times!

I have a Mini LST with Tekin Mini Rage Extreme Brushles system, MIP ball diff, Dual Disk Slipper. Thats all my performance stuff on it, and to day at work one of the guys I work with has a 3 cell Lipo in his brushless Mini Quake, and he also has a 2 cell lipo. He let me try the 2 cell and it had about as much power that I think that I would want to mess around, but then he asked if I wanted to try the 3 cell and I said, yea sure, so I did and HOLY CRAP this thing flew. He said his Mini Quake will do close to 50, I've seen it go and I believe it, I know my Mini LST is faster than his Mini Quake if I use his 3 Cell. Unfortunatly I am comming down with the I gotta go LiPo sickness, but I am just going to get the Dynamite LiPo that is made for the Mini LST because the 3 cell gives it so much power that you need a parking lot to drive it, but is fun.

Looks good. A few suggestions for parts tho. Scrap the Intejunk CVDs and get the MIP, they're alot tougher. Also the Lunsford turnbucles are alot tougher than the AE's, trust me, I've bent enough. I bash with it offroad and have raced it indoors on carpet.
Mines built with-
Lunsord punisher turnucles
Mamba 6800
CBP monster pack with deans
MIP CVDs
CAW shock towers
T-Bone bumpers front and rear (highly recommend)
GPM shocks with AE blue springs for offroad and Racers Edge mini-turd shocks for onroad
Airtronics 94091z
Driven Productions Lunsford steering brace
GPM alloy gearboxes and topbrace (gonna switch back to the plastic boxes but the brace helps with the diff gears NOT stripping on jumps)
75 mhz radio
waterproofed electronics (it doubles as a submarine)
3Racing (?) sealed bearings
Trinity monster offraods and losi foams
Ti outdrives
Ti hingepins
