Default Donziikid's RC18MT:

Howdy.

This is another thread that was lost during the hack. Just rebooting it, finally; been way too busy!

RC18MT:

Mamba Power!

It's running Mamba Competition X package. This thing is a 35mph beast on stock cells, can't wait to get some LiPo's on this beautiful beast!

Upgrades:
Aluminum shock towers. (Front and rear)
Aluminum Differentials (Rear is missing 12teeth, front seems perfect.)
Elite 1500mAh 2/3A NiMH from Cheapbatterypacks.com.
Stock AE 1100mAh NiMH.
Aluminum carriers.
Aluminum spur gear (60T).
Assorted pinion gears.
Titanium Driveshaft.
Full stock chassis. (No elecs.)
And my favorite: ElectriFly Power Series LiPo. 3s, 910mAh @ 11.1V. (Not currently in use)
And lastly a 9400kV brushless motor. C4 Dynamite!


Ask away!

Why do you say this? Because of cogging? I experience none what so ever, actually.

-Well the performance impact and its bad for the Mamba set-up its not getting what it needs and craves.(lol the word sounded good)

-The ESC is what is impacted not as much the motor (i believe)
-good choice w/ all the aluminum.

Lol, same here, she says I have too many. She is both right and wrong. How do you like the motor? I was thinking about getting one if I get a RC18MT. Got any videos? How does it run speed wise compared to your Stampede, it is BL right? Sorry for soo many questions.

Castle actually recomends using a NiMH setup as opposed to a Litihum-Chemistry setup; at least that's how I read it in my instruction manual. And, at times I see that it wants to have that little extra "oomph" that Lithium would provide, but I see no use for it because that speed is far to great for this little machine. I see enough power band with just NiMH.

True.

Thanks, it does need some shimming with the front differential; however. Rear is flawless in my horrible opinion.

First: I wub' questions.
Second: No videos.
Third: Beats the living daylights out of the Stampede. :lmao: Stampede is brushed, however. 1:10th brushless from Castle isn't my favorite, and I can't afford to go with a Novak. Nor a Spektrum or FM radio to power that intense amount of brushless power. AM can't handle most setups in the Stampede when it comes to brushless.
Last: I love the motor. Fast as all get'out.

Yeah, can't wait to use LiPo... Wanna know what's sad? I'm afraid to pull full boar, so that's not even 100% throttle.

I wish! I plan on buying a Hummer body and painting that; keep an eye out.

You have to be stupid sometimes, and today was my day. Got home from lunch, had a stupid thought and thunk to myself: "Why the hell not!" So, I grabbed the camera, the zip ties, changed out the pinion and off I went. I wasn't going to be stupid for long, so hopefully 49" will catch you attention. Maybe I'll do more in the future.



Yeah, that's onboard video.. Gearing in that video was 15T pinion to 60T spur; Dynamite 9200kV motor on Mamba 25 ESC. 1100mAh NiMH battery charged at .8amp til peak.

Lemme know what you think!

It wanted to wheelie everywhere, but I wasn't about to let it flip on its lid an scratch the already beat to hell Kodak.

I'll get more once I find a place where I can actually open her up 100%.

cool video, i wanted to try that too with my rc18 but, was scared to flip it.
how is your diff gears holding up to all that power? i just had to replace my diff gear and input gear with steel ones. my diff was properly shimmed but they still wore out and stripped. and i'm only running 6800kv and a 2cell li-po.
my new steel gears sound pretty cool though,they seem to be showing no signs of wear so far.
