Default is there a twin hammers electronics thread

I tried searching, but my browser keeps flaking out and timing out.
Is there a thread that covers what you guys are running in your TH.
I'm thinking of getting one, and want to see what kind of budget I can get away with.
THanks guys :]

Thanks, my first instinct is brushless, just because that's what I'm used to, but I might want to get into some water, mud and snow, so I'm thinking brushed might be better

I picked up a 4000kv 4pole horizon combo for $84. Water proof and everything. Geared 22/78 it crawls pretty good and it is a blast in high gear.

I have one of these in my Yeti
Value Hobby R/C Hobby Store (Addison, Illinois): GForce 3650SL 4-Pole Sensorless Brushless Inrunner Motor-4300KV
I haven't run it yet

how about putting that in a Twin Hammers and getting a different motor for the Yeti?

ok, went through the stash and found a gforce 3550 4 pole 4300kv. So that's what I'm going to use.
so, keeping the price as low as possible. How suitable would a castle sidewinder be?

ok, hope I didn't screw up too badly, but, like I said, I'm going to run the 4 pole 4300kv
I ordered a Castle Creations Sidewinder 3 and CC Bec
an hs-5645mg for steering and an hs-225mg for shifting.

still have to pick batteries :P

I am using the Hitec 5646, and 225 myself, no problems other. For crawling the steering could be a little stronger, but it works good for bashing. A bec is a good idea IMO.

I would look at the Holmes Hobbies BRXL speed control and a Expert 35 t motor, or a 13t brushless motor.

For servos you want something with a rating of at least 300 FPT. I run a Hitec 7954 for steering. The micro will work fine for a shifter if you set up the linkage right.
Hope that helps you out.

I think I might through in my setup later. Cheap 4 pole sensored system, and cheap tower pro knockoff servos. We'll see what happens and if anything lasts haha. I have the knockoff hammers, want to keep the whole thing as cheap as possible. I imagine I'll end up paying for it.

I'm more worried about steering. Need to figure something else out with buying one of the kits. Stock steering is horrendous.

Have you had a chance to run that setup yet. I'm running a U4 race this weekend, and I'm running a Tekin RS and a 17.5. what gearing did you run?

I run a Tekin 17.5 gen 1 in my Twin hammers on both 2s and 3s geared anywhere from 24/82 for crawling, up to 27/82 for hauling. It seems happiest at either 24 or 25 tooth pinion. It's almost unbreakable on 2s, and I can easily break CVD's on 3s if I have a bad landing when on the throttle. Overall I'm very happy with the combo. It's got plenty of snap to leap up ledges and enough creep to move millimeter by millimeter.

Thank you for the quick reply. I only run 3s lol, I will have to see if I can get one of my 5000mah 2s packs to fit in, I ordered the AMF battery tray to see if it will hold a bigger battery. Maybe I'// drop the pinion to like 20-22 and run 3s.
