Traxxas Spartan Maiden Voyage-No OverHeat

Posted on Tuesday, May 17th, 2011 | in Electric RC | 5 Comments

Yes Kiddies! We have finally taken our brand new Traxxas Spartan out for its first run. If only I wasn’t such an idiot and I waited until now to buy it instead of rushing out in February to score it and then wait 3 months lol. Many people have been hating on the Traxxas Spartan for overheating and I am here to say we had no issues of the type yesterday. We were only running 5 Cell Lipo’s but we ran for a good amount of time and let me tell you this, The Traxxas Spartan RC boat is every bit as much fun as you might think it to be. In terms of filming we will have to get a little more creative as who wants to watch 3 minutes of us zooming back and forth but as you know RC NightMare has got something up our sleeves to make it looks amazing.

I was afraid first of all that the boat would be hard to handle and I might flip it, then have to swim my fat butt out in the cold water to go get it, however that just didn’t happen. I will say the turning radius left something to be desired but that is likely a big contributing factor to the fact I did not flip it, had I had the ability to turn more sharply I am sure I would of and I am sure I would of been more likely to roll the thing.

That said, we have another run scheduled for later this week, and hopefully we can test out 6S power for you guys to confirm our Rudder fix worked in terms of cooling, I have also been kicking around the idea of just going ahead and adding another cooling line to the Traxxas Spartan just for good measure and might have Brandon help me out with that before the next run.

That said the Traxxas Spartan RC Boat was super fun, super fast and worth the wait for sure. As we compile the footage for a running video, here are some pictures Cory took yesterday.

Team Associated SC10 RS RTR Truck Info & Review

Posted on Thursday, May 12th, 2011 | in News | 11 Comments

Team Associated has recently come out with the SC10 RS (race spec) Ready-to-Run Truck. It is a 1/10th scale Electric 2WD Off Road Race Truck. The reason I wanted to take a look at it today is because I’ve heard a lot of people asking, “what the heck is the difference between this and the regular SC10?”. When I first started looking into it, I was a little confused myself. Is this just an SC10 with a different body? Are there upgrades? So I took a little bit of a deeper look into it.

What is a Race Spec?

My first thought was, has everyone been racing with the wrong types of RC’s? Do I need a race spec model? The answer is no, of course. But, like the name implies, this is a replica of the trucks driven in the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series. So basically, it has the same specs and looks as the truck that was used in that race. The SC10RS won the 2010 R.O.A.R. National Championships. Read on »»
