Monster Truck Insanity – You’re a Firework
Greetings and an early Pleased 4th to our American readers!
The above pic was shot again in July 2017 when me and a few buddies tried to recreate Dennis Anderson’s “Mr. Destruction” wall of metal stunt in r/c type. We used an Axial SMT10 and a bunch of plastic automobiles, and it was a blast.
I’d hyperlink video of it, however Monster Jam hit us with the outdated stop and desist copyright strike for utilizing audio of the true stunt. Boo. Pic remains to be cool, although!
Anyhow, with the vacation weekend almost upon us, my thoughts is severely scatterbrained. I spent final weekend making ready my fleet of monster vans for an upcoming Set off King race, so I’m taking a break from the bench. I can reply a pair questions, although!
I’m shopping for my son a traxxas stampede and was questioning what you considered the Traxxas EZ-Peak chargers? I need to get a Traxxas 2S battery and so I need a first rate charger. I hope you don’t thoughts this query isn’t stable axle associated! I get pleasure from seeing you submit about these vans, although. Thanks and sustain the great work!

Whats up up there, Steve! Hope North Dakota has gotten much less rain than Missouri the previous couple of weeks!
Earlier than answering your query, please don’t ever hesitate to succeed in out for questions of the non-solid axle selection! I do know that I focus heavy on that section right here, given I’m dedicated to it, however I’m all the time sport to speak common outdated bashing monster associated questions. I’ve acquired a pleasant fleet of them, too!
The Traxxas EZ-Peak household of chargers is one which I extremely advocate for these of you utilizing Traxxas Batteries. I’ve each a single and twin EZ-Peak charger, and they’re SUPER simple to make use of and work nicely. Nowadays I’m predominantly utilizing my twin charger as a result of it’s good for juicing up my twin 3 and 4S packs to be used in my X-Maxx. I’ve acquired no criticism. I run them on “stability” mode and I’ve by no means had a difficulty in my packs. With a number of easy push button choices, it’s additionally fairly easy to function. It’s about as “plug and play” as you may get.
Thanks for the query and good luck!
What do you advocate gearing the Losi LMT curler at?
Hmmm, nicely John, I’m lacking a giant piece of information right here. I’ve no clue what motor you’re going to use. I’ll simply assume it’s a decently powered brushless system.
I might personally stick to the 14t pinion after which run it on 3S. That ought to provide you with loads of energy whereas additionally being conservatively geared. If you happen to intend to run on 2S and aren’t pleased with the velocity, I’d proceed rising pinion measurement till you get that good mixture of high finish and low warmth that you’re attempting accomplish.
Not understanding what motor or ESC we’re speaking about, that’s the most effective recommendation I may give, fella! Better of luck!
Alright of us, I’m off to go be a powder monkey for the weekend. Keep secure and have a very good one!
