RC Cars

Just for a bit of fun.  Really for Cameron, really!  Got four cars at the moment with various mods.

  1. Thunder Tiger Phoenix ST 2 with Tamiya Stock Brushless motor and ESC.

  2. Tamiya DB-01 Durga with Hobbywing EZRUN 3300KV sensored brushless motor and ESC.
    Hopped up with:
    - Differential Joint 51286
    - Differential Rings 51287
    - TRF501x Eccentric Belt Tensioner 53967
    - 950 Bearings for use with Tensioner 51090
    - Slipper Clutch 54018
    - Differential Pulley (or 84015 black) 53988
    - Center Pulley 53989
    - Reinforced Drive Belt 54140
    - Assembly Universal Shaft (Front) 54015
    - Assembly Universal Shaft (Rear) 54016
    - Carbon reinforced A parts 54033
    - 18 & 19 tooth pinion 53965
    - 20 & 21 tooth pinion 53966
    Bit too much dosh on a an average car, but still a lot of fun.

  3. Kyosho DBX custom. Brought 2nd hand for $100.  Was a gas powered car, but converted to brushless.  Some random chinese motor and ESC, but it's bloody fast and a lot of fun.  I added a 2.4GHz controller, and refurbished the battery, but apart from that, it's the best value $100 I've found for a RC Car.

  4. Traxxas Summit XL
    Super fun truck with heaps of controls, dual speed, diff locks etc.
