Sorry for the spelling errors
To be honest, a majority of the list above can apply to the SCX10. I have always intended to make a similar list for that rig, just haven't gotten around to it. The majority of parts will fit or there are SCX10 or 1.9 equivalents.
Feel free to ask any questions specifically, that's why we are all here.
IM really looking at the motor option, would the same motor/escs work in a scx10?
Yes. The transmission is basically the same and mounts the same. Actually you can fit a couple bigger motors in scx10s that you can't fit in a wraith because of the link mount. What motor specifically are you looking at.
Im just looking for an upgrade, i burnt out the stock motor, so i put i tekin t35 crawler motor in with the AE-2 system and its not working the best and i really want to go brushless, i was thinking of the traxxas VXL system, but ive heard its not good for crawling.
If all you plan to do is hit the mud and water, the VXl would be great. I've seen some guys run in the "training mode" which knocks everything down to 50% to crawl with. it doesn't work great but it can work somewhat on the rocks. However, the rest of the driveline can't handle this power for long as it wasn't designed for it. You'll need to upgrade the transmission gears, driveshafts, and eventually the axle gears.
You really need a sensored system if you want brushless. The Tekin Redline (gen 1) motors are perfect for an SCX10. Either in 17.5 or 21.5 you'll have great resolution and control with more than enough wheel speed. If you want to get crazy with speed you can get a 13.5 or 10.5. You'll need a good sensored esc like a Castle MMP, Tekin RSpro, or a Tekin RX8. The MMP is the least expensive and in my opinion the best value. With a 17.5 or 21.5, your driveline will stand up for much longer than the faster motors but like anything, you will eventually need to upgrade parts. Sensored motors and esc's can be waterproofed, there are many different ways. I use sensored motors in all my scale rigs except 1 and I love them. The power and speed combined with low speed capability sets them above brushed motors. Plus the maintenance is much less on a brushless motor. No brushes to change or com's to turn.
thanks for the help, ill have to look at my options
one question, why tekin redline gen 1, why not gen 2?
Gen 1 has a solid can you can seal easily. The gen 2 has vent holes all over it. I'm sure it's a good motor just wouldn't want to try waterproof it. Plus the gen1 is $20-30 cheaper.
This is just what I needed! Perfect helps me out big time thanks guys! Rcsparks forum has never let me down!!
Thanks really helpful information dna4engr
SO, I run the TOPCAD performance and chassis upgrade kit on my WPS. It killed my stack hubs and stock servo immediately. Word of the wise, replace your hubs with aluminum hex adapters and a MG waterproof Hitec or other brand servo immediately if going with these options...DNA you were right on the money.
Dna is it possible for you to email those charts to me? I can't them on screen as their too tiny .. or my eyes are that bad lol
email@example.com duh forgot that part
Ill send them out tomorrow.
Any forum experts that can help me with the photo size. These are huge on my computer. Then when I host them on Flickr they show up small on the thread. Don't say "use another hosting site". I battled with photobucket enough due to bandwidth. That's why I'm with Flickr now.
Lets just say in better at wrenching then I am at thread tricks. Lol
i would also like it emailed to me firstname.lastname@example.org thanks
Thanks I plan on getting a wraith after I sell my summit
I finally figured it out. In Flickr you can select the image size as it will be posted in the IMG link through the BB Code. They all should be easily viewable now. Sorry for the inconvenience.
I've searched for the mud queen motor choices and there are no Holmes hobbies products in the uk or eu so would anyone happen to know an awesome motor, just the motor, brushed aswel, for mudding, price doesn't matter
The Titan 12T should be available in the UK.
And it's cheap, if it doesn't work for you, then you can just import the Holmes Hobbies one.
Just because it's first on the list doesn't mean that its bad, if it's on the list it's recommended for the use.
