Default im not new.... but been gone along time

Hey guys, ive been gone for probably close to 2-3 years now

Thought id come back to check in, good to see some of your names again.


I still have my xmods, havent touched them since i pretty much left here, been riding my quad and mostly working.

But yesterday i stopped in my LHS and bought myself a losi micro rally car the brushless one. it was fun to drive around but then i charged the battery and it doesnt turn on or anything now.

welcome back!
take the rally back to the shop and see if they can figure out what's wrong. ive been hearing a lot of defects for the brushless ones lately.

lipos for more speed.. that's about it.

maybe a lower kv, higher geared motor, so it runs cooler

you need to drill another hole in the motor mount for it to fit. yes itll work with the stock esc.
