The motor is a brushed 540, offering a lot of torque and power to your hill climbs. Just drop in your battery and it is ready for action. But the steering angle is easily increased by removing the stops on the steering knuckles. Now your Blazer can handle any terrain and climb any steep crag. While this truck can really perform under pressure, it is not even close to top speeds seen with professional grade trail rigs. Got my local shop to order some up.
Stock plastic axial c hubs will fit just fine with a little modification to the screw hole in the hubs. More advanced drivers can opt to add rear steering and crush on with more finesse. Still could use a servo saver though, just a bit of added protection. I have half a mind to buy it just to see what it can do, and then return it if it is total junk. It offers everything you would expect and more. While the added weight is certainly a bonus to the crawler enthusiast, the steel C-Channel chassis and other metal components offer a rugged durability that shows staying power and a build that is going to last through some harsh treatment. The fact that this truck is ready to use straight out of the box will make this appealing to beginners.
The exceed maxstone 10 is virtually identical to the redcat so you can find some more options for modding by checking those forums. Can you confirm what turn motor comes stock, and what turn you might recommend as a small upgrade? And I also suggest a ubec to let you give full 6v or more power to the servo. Either was it gives me some more time to research for an upgraded servo. Also, I live in a very rural area, pics don't upload well from here, so tomorrow evening I'll do some from my daughters home, I don't have a lot as I want to beat on it a bit before itear it apart, but if something breaks, y'all will be the first to know. Out with the old and in with the new. The single motor design might offer a slightly less responsive and powerful output than dual motor options out there, but this truck has a powerful 550 brushed motor that can get the job done.
I'm happy with the servo which seems to have plenty of torque for the Everest. I don't trust my eyes to not put them too close together. Something like , but you can go cheaper. Your servo is either stripped or you've stripped the teeth of the servo horn. This is among the more inexpensive of the rock crawlers that you can find out there, primarily because of its overall lack of model specific aftermarket options.
Here is a recap of all our favourite pics for the year:. The shocks are complete with anodized aluminum caps and the long travel spring shocks are perfect for crawling conditions. With the Vaterra Ascender, you are getting an entire kit to build a lifted 1986 Chevy Blazer just how you would like it to be. The stock ones as you know are too hard. The longer a machine runs, the more stuff breaks. Get yourself a new new servo, preferably a high torque one.
The waterproof design and out-of-box readiness make it an easy choice for those who want to just have fun, and with some simple customization, this could be a favorite for experienced users as well. We are lucky to have such a vast array of models to choose from. I did notice that the body is pretty flimsy and I feel like it might do well with a couple upgrades. I'd say this should be the first mod. The necessary upgrade is to replace the plastic lockers with the axial steel lockers.
When you go hard, stuff breaks. Kind of makes me feel like I got the raw end of the deal! I'm going crawling tomorrow and should see how it fares with light throttle. If you would like a specific body please add a comment on the checkout page. Real easy to work on. Apart from the mods and upgradable aftermarket parts that are available for this model, you can find a lot of versatility just in the stock components. This truck is probably a lot like the Maxstone. The entire Maxstone line, in all of its ratios, is exclusively intended to be rock crawlers.
Just switching to a LiPo made a decent difference. Will mess them up pretty quick. But i found out that the stock redcat axels put a werid angle on the driveshafts once they are mounted to the scx10 frame. The fact that the components are waterproof is great. They may be inferior to others, but I think it'll challenge me and teach me things to learn with the less grippy ones. You can find all the top general purpose and basher trucks in our.
Full lock to the right on the steering and it would go straight. If you decide to add rear steer please be forewarned - the front lower links have a bend in them to provide clearance for the tires, the rear lower links do not. But lets also be clear.

Rock Truck: If you are looking for slow, technical driving where your primary objective is to conquer obstacles or courses, a crawler is you best bet. As mentioned by others Axial aluminum c hubs and knuckles bolt up, so it should stand to reason that similar mods to increase steering angle would work.
