Any basement crawling scheduled for Tuesday the 9th? It's about the only time I have to play at the moment . Let me know...I need my crawler fix, otherwise it'll just collect dust!

Since everyone seems to be getting the new Honcho rig, I'm looking at getting something different. The more I see the Wreckluse chassis, the more I want it . Since the RC4WD Subzero came out way overpriced, I kinda gave up on wanting one. I was thinking of going the trail/rockracer route with it. Reasonably good crawling ability, with a little more wheel speed for fun. I may have to sell off some unused stuff to take the sting out of the $209 asking price, but I shouldn't need to buy too much to complete it.

Any thoughts, comments, suggestions?

That Wreckluse chassis looks cool as hell! Do it!

After crawling my Honcho around some I'm thinking going brushless for the same reason WHEEL SPEED. I haven't got my 3s yet but I'm not falling in love with the 35t brushed yet. If any one knows something about sidewinders let me know cuz I can't get my drag break to work properly, little confused.

This might be a longshot, but did you break the motor in first? I only ask because the brushes won't be making full contact with the commutator until they "wear in". This will affect performance (torque, speed) and possibly it's braking strength. There are many methods of breaking in a brushed motor, I'd do a search and follow the one that sounds most reasonable. Just a shot in the dark...good luck!

Do you have the castle link?? If not you can borrow mine.

The Honcho comes with a 35t? I thought it was a 27t? or did you throw the 35t in?

I had a 35t in my trail rig, but since I smoked that I will be trowing in my axial 27t, that I have laying around.

IMO brushed is the only way to go for crawlers(Although the GOAT system ROCKS!)- BUT ESP. for trail rigs, you all know I'm not afraid to get WET

Brushless motors are just too expensive to replace...IMO

No the honcho didn't come with any electronics, I bought a 35t Intigy. I bought a castle link for my drifter, but thanx for the offer.

Huh? WTF is breaking in a motor? Seriously though I have NEVER done it!
I would if I got A NICE HH motor, or something... But I'm a cheap ass and just buy $20-$25 motors.

So true :?. I bought a cheapie $119 FU2E 6800kV system for racing. 1st one smoked while setting it up, 2nd one smoked during it's 3rd race, 3rd one is on it's way via Fedex...and it's going back to HTO for store credit.

Not sure what Super is running (Integy 35T?) but break-in will improve performance. Low voltage run-in to keep the heat down, then a good cleaning/luber-cay-shun. The brake function works by shorting the motor, so if the brushes don't make full contact, the brakes will feel weak.

FYI: I have a motor lathe for turning/trueing the comms on brushed motors when they need a rebuild and new brushes. It's available to any club member who'd like to borrow it .

DUH! I'm retarded, The TR (RTR's) come with 27t motors right?

I might try breaking in my next comp motor it will prob. be a novak, Integy, maybe a tekin. I'm too poor for Holmes Hobbies

RPM makes a neat little break-in stand also. It allows you to spin the fresh motor with a slave motor powered by a 2 cell to wear in the brushes without putting voltage across the newly cut comm (cooler method, no arcing either). I've used mine a few times, pretty slick.

Soon my 1:1 on road scaler will be out of paint and body so I will have yet another pit to dump my money into.

We went and did a little clean up on Friday at Hobby Town, but the slots car guys were cleaning the track so we didn't want to stir up to much dust.

The current plan (if it works for everyone) is to have our Tuesday night meeting in Oshkosh instead of Kaspers. If we get there early enough we can arrange the sections where they belong and get some test crawling in. Chris and I will probably head down there around 4:00 grab a bite to eat and if others are there start moving stuff around. I think for safety reasons and to keep my back in working order we need 3 or 4 people on each section. This will also help keep the legs under the sections.

Please post if you plan on showing up, and around what time so we can get this thing finished up. Thanks...
