Ordered a waterproof brushless crawler system,new stock driveshafts,light kit,a complete stock a arm set.

$125 was hard to spend right now....but well needed.
Lookin foward to get her going again.
This time gonna try to cram a 3s 2700 under the shell,room is very limited on this platform.
May also plan a trailer for this to be towed behind a 1/6 rig.

installed the quickrun 60amp esc and 21.5t sensored brushless motor.
rotation was backwards so i flipped the tranny.
on 3s lipo she hits around 6 mph with plenty shaft snappin torque.
gotta find my programmer card for hobbywing to adjust the punch and reverse percentage.currently she has 20% reverse,20% brake 100% foward.
punch on default 3.....and she spins all 4 tires on the jump.
guess we will test my homemade driveshafts....lol

temp placement of battery and rx for test run.i did rearrange things and installed the body for a quick run......so glad to have her back drivable.

next up is orginizing,battery tray,getting rid of servo saver and installing unit.

Not really poor craftsmanship kills r/c's...........and not knowing when to let off the throttle.

So your sayin my bmf yota was poor craftsmanship....or me not knowing when to let off the throttle....lol.
Actually i only killed a spur gear that day.
I think you still have vids of that vxl powered beat scx10 yota

Got the rhino rtr....tried a couple spots for the battery....it wound up in the bed.

Im saying we were careless with that much power.was an Scx10 designed to withstand 3600kv on 3s?
And the poor plastic 48 pitch spur.

To be fair a stick got jammed against the spur in the mud pit,slowly wore the teeth off.the 3600kv didnt eat it.
