Default jdawgs CC

Here is a CC I have been running alot lately.

-Removed the center section to allow for lower elec mounting
-Cut the side plate to get the ESC down low. I wish I had another FXR-Pro to put in it but they are both in my Berg
-Holmes 454's (LOVE EM)
-5oz + Great Planes stick on lead weight in each front wheel (Proline)
-Big bore shocks
-FULL metal gear set (including the main gear)
-Full bearing set
-Aluminum links
-5 cell battery mounted on the graphite batt plate over front servo

Looks good J. How do those 454's do on 5 cells? Sure makes it easy to pick a battery since I have a bunch of 6 cell 2/3a's laying around

I love them with 5 cells. I have tried 5,6 and 8 cells with them. 8 cells was silly stupid power. I am currently using Much More 5 cell receiver batts and love the performance. 6 cells gave me a little extra, but since the thing is pretty light it doesn't really need 6 cells. Thanks for letting me use your butter knife
I am working on doing a carbon chassis for it now. Just need time to finish drawing it up.

Well, they are setup completely different. My Berg uses front steering only and a dual esc setup to control dig. My CC is 4 wheel steering and a single esc without dig. They just are not the same. Not to mention the size differences. I usually take my Berg, Axial and my CC when I go crawling and each work differntly, but all of them are a blast to drive. Hope this answers your question.

I would talk to the lhs's first to see if they can order in the parts for you. I don't know of any of the RCC vendors that are currently carrying the hop ups or I would suggest one of them. You can always go to Tower Hobbies.

Yes, the gearbox housing is covered under stress tech guarantee. However, the gears themselves are not.

I am running samples of the main gears right now. We should have the main gears in stock soon. New dogbones? I am still running the stock dogbones.
Glad to hear the guys in our warranty center took good care of you.

J, go to my "Broke" thread and look at the twisted break, that is with the stock motors. I purchased the CVDs they look a bit more beefy.
And yes the warranty department rocks, If I could I would buy them a round!!!

I already checked that out. I have never broke an axle like that. Very impressive. Even with the Holmes motors I have not seen that. I have alot of time on SEVERAL Cliff Climbers. I will pass along your appreciation to our service center. Alot of times all they hear is how upset someone is so to get a pat on the back once in a while will be appreciated.

Randy dont dispair, shit happens, just count your stars that it wasnt a real 1:1.
Call the warranty #(217) 398-0007 and they will be happy to send you out a set.
