I will be buying my first crawler ( Losi Night Crawler) soon and was wondering what battery and charger you would suggest I get? I plan on this being the first of many crawlers I will own so as much as I want to quit saving and start buying I don't want to just buy a set of cheap batteries and a cheap charger and throw good money after bad. I have been reading so much about NiMh and LiPo I am not sure what route to go to get started. Thanks for the help

On the charger it depends how much you want to spend. I use a hyperion Duo it will charge 2 battries at once and about anytype of battery you would ever want, but it is a spendy proposition ~300$, but there are other good chargers out there for less money (some one else will have to weight in on them). I would go Lipo you get so much more energy in alot smaller package, they can be snuck about anywhere on the LNC and it greatly lowers CG. As far as brands I have run expensive and cheap batteries and the cheap perform as well (if not better) just make sure the the c raiting is there (discharge raiting). I run these with no problems in the LNC http://www.hobbypartz.com/83p-1300mah-2s1p-74-20c.html .

Default tapping losi axels

there are a couple guys here that are tapping their losi axels and putting in a grub screw to make for easier greasing. if anyone has done this could you please post some pics as to the best way to do it. in theory it sounds like a good idea

This as probably been asked a thousand times and im sorry. Is the only way to tell you have recalled worm gears is from your serial #? I'm also wondering if they newer rollers are fixed, or could they still have the same problem? Thanks >_<

Default lcc

i have run the brushless and the old stock 27 turn seemed to work well with the 12 pinion still gets hot but i still have not checked my worms yet. I just got the moa kit, still putting it together but it should work well. All in all i still love my LCC, got an axial to compare and the LCC just kicks A**!

those are for the bigger 5mm shaft motors and 32pitch. you want just normal pinions like you would get for a brushed motor and in 48pitch.

13, 14, 15 tooths are good to start with

The Hyperion VX g3 battery is really good for ~35 dollars. Has a 35c/65c rating and 5c charge. Runs only 1100mah but it lasts as long as my cheaper 1300.

http://www.rclipos.com/Hyperion_G3_VX.htm

You may be able to fit the 1800mah in there without rubbing the servo. I know that a 90mm won't fit though.

This is the only site i could find that had 48 Pitch Pinions that had a bore size smaller then 1/8th or 5mm
http://www.servocity.com/html/48_pit...pinion_ge.html

Here are some that matched everything other then the bore size
http://www.servocity.com/html/48_pit...ion_gears.html

You would think this would be a little simpler to find
