    I'm pretty sure my hacker is a 60A ESC but it's sensorless. Is sensored stuff more popular these days?

    I took my old Kyosho TF-2 out and thought I sucked at drifting. Turns out one of the front dogbones snapped (from wearing against the axle) at some point in time and I forgot about it. No wonder it was spin-happy. lol. Gonna stick with this chassis for the time being unless I can't find a replacement dogbone. Don't mind if I break/ruin this one since it's a chassis that was given to me. and it's pretty tough. My other chassis are too old to get parts for.

    Had a look at the MST stuff and it's nice looking (especially the red/SSG VIP) but too pricey for me.

    Need a new charger. Sick of charging off car battery.

    Have a look at the bmax b6ac

    Iv been using it for 2 years now and were around $59 back then

    60amp should be fine the higher amp esc's seem to do a better job at powering high speed amp hungry coreless servo's hahaha

    b6ac looks like it'll do what I want it to. Will see if the shop has one.

    I never got the deal with fast servos. I'm still using a S3003 on the TF-2, haha.

    For some reason, that gold and silver reminds of some gundam model I saw in Japan. lol.

    It also helps greatly when you go rwd aswell especially if your using a gyro it's basically instant to where ever it needs to go to

    Also I'd highly recomend a sensored system just for that smoothness and you can really tell the differance in the power delivery between non sensored and sensored

    I have a speed passion dokyo 8.5t that I'm gunna use a hobbywing 120amp esc with

    Also gunna be changing the super stock esc in my d3 to the same esc when they turn up and I solder the cables on

    Gunna get some heat shrink and some braided sleeving and do a proper wiring job on these ones


    Makes for a much neater looking setup

    I know exactly what you mean with the power delivery between the two systems. The Novak is good at less than crawling pace but I've put some deadband in in the controller for the hacker so it doesn't cog. Makes it hard to drive when it's RWD.

    I did a something similar to this CS thing years ago. I ran the tape on the front tires on the outside, instead of the inside, which have the drive bias to the front. So if the fronts weren't pointing where you wanted the car to go, you'd spin. It felt a lot more realistic than AWD drifting. Had to change driving style to transition the car slower but I still didn't feel I needed a quicker servo.

    I watched a few videos last night, these dudes doing RWD, are they using gyros or does the car move slow enough that you can catch it by hand?

    What's that motor/ESC combo worth? Is it alright buying cheap electronics these days? Should I buy a Novak or castle creations, or is hobby wing(totally unknown to me and sounds like a cheap brand) stuff ok?
