Want to race my old Buggy
I went to the hobby shop looking to see how things have changed and noticed the only things that have changed is lipo's and brushless and better slipper clutches,Oh and shaft driven four wheel drive is much better.
Here is the rub I was told not to race my old 4w drive car because there would not be any replacements for it and it would not be as good the newer ones! I have a strong knowledge of buggy's the one that I still have won over 54 club trophy's and three Major Roar events back 20 years ago and from the configuration of today's mine is the same with all the same gears and all the stuff excepted for lipo's and motors. Oh and yeah that graphite is not as good as before seems they mixed fiberglass and carbon and it gives to much,but that is something that like to start a thread about later.
I would love to get into this again and use my trusty car and not have to dump another thousand in parts and new car and I think I can make new arms and bash trans parts and I have already gotten a high end charger discharge cycler for all types of batteries up to 6s lipo's couple of brushless motors and three lipo saddle packs still not sure about the ESC I think Tekin or Novak X drive or maybe the new Mamba pro need more input yet on them just don't want to make a dumb move, so that is where I need some help from any one of you that race or just enjoy this hobby.
Thank for helping
