SOON MY FRIEND!  SOON!

 

Maybe this weekend?  I gotta talk to blake to see if I can get a roadtrip going! Gas costs too frickin much for me to justify driving by myself.  It would be like 100 bucks round trip....and I just have a little 5 cylinder GMC truck!

hopbot-the 6.5 is the perfect 4wheel motor!

 

19/84 gearing should be at least in the ballpark.  I think I ran a 19tooth on my 6.5 when i was using it in my Bj4...

Just balance while you charge.  Most of the balancers available are passive and can be used inline. What it does is keeps a constant check on voltage and distributes charge to the lower cell while it is charging.  That way your packs are always balanced.

hey there guys, excited to try out 4wd mod with my b44. i have an lrp vector x11 6.5 with 19/84 gearing - will that get me off to a good start? i know i need to learn to drive after that

 

thanks also for all the tips on setup, the car's suspension feels dialed!

Balance them when you charge them and they last longer.. otherwise..  do them every 4-5 runs.

hey there guys, AWESOME race day yesterday! john and kevin, thanks again for all the hard work, the tips, and making it so much fun! you guys rock!!!

john, i'll give 4wd mod a try, even though there's no way i'll make it out of last place! glad to have you call me out of rookie over the PA

kiran: i'm running the diggity braces with the maxamps 6000 sadles (i know the trakpowers are the best, but got these way back) and they work awesome!

Kiran,

Yeah the Maxamps would work and give you  runtime.  Badboy used to rock those batteries.  He and I both run the TrakPower saddles now and they are the ticket and worth the money.

As for mounting, I have the Diggity Designs carbon braces for the B44 and the carbon straps and the mounting is dialed.  They are designed around the TP packs and they don't budge.  Here's the link.  Give Damon a call and he'll get you set up.

who makes a good battery for the b44?

Trakpower makes TP4800 saddle pack that fits B44. Badboy use them on his car if you want to see it in person.

MaxAmps also makes saddlepack Lipo for the car likes B44 and D4 Cyclone athough the rating is not as high as Trakpower but at a higher amperage.

Great time again!  Thanks to Pops, Kevin, John and the crew. 

Hopefully I'll get a new esc (to replace the one that decided to randomly pop and smoke on me yesterday) in time for the next race!

Wow..track was awesome today. If it hadn't for my stupid ESC switch kept switch off everytime I landed or snag or something, I would've finished higher than 8th lol!

Alas, the "grasshopper" broke the rear tower mount after the race is over...good thing there is going to be two weeks before we race again.

See you all in two weeks.

Armand.
