Quick update. The 4PK should be here soon, after that I will try out dual esc's and see how far I can push the CC. Should be a blast to drive

Wow how about some updates?? Sorry for the delay on this project.

Picked up some more Futaba goodies to finish up this build and take it to the next level.



After I messed with the 4PK programming and mixing for a while I ended up switching to the 4 channel RX for more programming options.

Stared wiring the ESC's. Running them off a single 6 cell pack for now.







Time for a dinner break

After dinner I decided to get this rig finished tonight.

Some more wiring completed



Installed a S9156. Yes its overkill, however I am planning on running some 2.2's or some tall and heavy 1.9's in the near future.







Quick flex shot




Body mounted!

I went with the setup that Harley posted in the 4PK tips thread. Worked perfectly. Cant wait to get it out on the rocks!

First go to Systm



Change Disp-Sel: SRV-VIEW



Go to Menu-T



Change it to Level3 (make sure to go down to EXEC and push +/- at the same time)



Go to PMIX1



Set as such:



Go to PMIX2



Set as such:



Go to SWTCH:



Set like so:



Go to DIAL:



The top two lines are the dials that control the rear mixing:





And that is it. That will give result with this setup. Feel free to PM me or post up any questions

Should be fine, at the minimum you can run them in parallel.

Actually Harley did that, all I did was quote it and bring it in from the 4PK tips thread ;) Make sure to tell him thank you!

I really doubt its possible. Might require a custom motor plate, but the longer can will interfere with the links and shock mounts at the axle.

Yup, I think I need to pick up a pair of the 454's. The rig works well but I can see the CC motors not holding up to a lot of weight in the wheels.

Just make sure to leave the front axle square to the ground, otherwise you will kill your steering ;)

Works great, that is what I have been using for several months now with no issues.

ok, Maybe I'm dumb and should know this but.... What are those little things in line on the red power wires from the esc's? I thought maybe a dig setup but it's just inline. Maybe a fuse?

BTW This is a sweet cc man. I've wanted one for a while. Maybe now I might just have to lol.
