Thanks crunky

I take pride in my builds, I also take them slow and enjoy the build.

Thanks EeePee

In the past I have built most of my rigs in stock form,
then later started to mod them. But on this build,
I wanted to do as many tweaks that I could find
while I built it.

I have always liked to have a well documented build
thread for all of my rc cars and trucks. And a very
methodical procedure in doing so. Also taking many
pictures along the way.

Thanks Vipxj

The reason why I haven't put the grill on yet is
because I haven't decided if I want to paint black
or leave it stock silver.
After today I decided on leaving it stock silver
for a classic look.

That location looks pretty cool. Did they just dump excess concrete over the rocks there?

Yes it gets pretty hott only if i keep it at full throttle all the time. If I'm just messing around its fine.
I have blown up a few of these esc's thou, so be careful
Thanks
I put it temporarily just to test the truck out.
Hopefully I will get a new esc for my comp rig for Xmas and the esc in my comp rig will go into my CR01

Is this the regular silver can that's overheating the TEU?

its loading the motor up by trying to go over obstacles or full throttle for long periods of time.
that causes tge teu esc to overheat
