R/C Cars.. Well Trucks

Something a bunch of us here at Bertera Nissan have gotten into… Remote Control Trucks..  Mainly Traxxas at the moment.. Ranging from the Rustler, Slash 4×4’s and a Stampede. So far we have gotten all of these in the Brushless form but using Cell batteries. I know I may be speaking another language here for some but I will describe a bit as we go.  (taking a little left from our main topics..)

Now the engines (brushed or Brushless) as I stated we have the Brushless models. These accept two types of batteries where the brushed version wont. Brushed will only use the cell batteries and brushless will also accept a lipo battery.  I have yet to try a lipo only because of a video I saw that the battery exploded! And man did it damadge the Stampede…  So in an effort of keeping cost down we have not yet gone there.. But these things FLY. Now we have not gone out and bought a radar gun or anything but figure we are running alomost all of them in the 40mph range. Yes that was read right.. 40 Miles Per Hour.  1/10 scale trucks. Like I said..  They FLY. On the trucks we drive most ( Stampede and Slash 4×4) we have changed out the optional gear for higher top speeds. Again only using eyes here it was not a huge change but I would figure a 5-10mph differance.  Out of the box there good for 35mph. 

So I plan to post about these from time to time as its something a few of us here have gotten into here.  Yes you mite catch us staying late to race around our trucks or meeting somewhere to see what we can do.. Jumps/Bash/Race.  Its just a good time I tell you. 😉

Now if this is something your considering.. Keep in mind its not just a buy and done…  Parts WILL Break and you will want to change others.. Bodies, Wheels & tires (Ive already changed all my wheels), and parts as they break.  I would like to find a Nissan Titan Truck Body. Maybe once my truck body is broken. Now these trucks do take a beating… So dont think it will fall apart in your hand but as I said they do like 40…. Hit something and come to a sudden halt and something may have broken. It happens.. 🙂 Upgrading is something we mite get into as time goes but for now it has just been really fun driving them around hitting jumps here and there..

I will try and get some photo’s/videos or our after hour activity with these up soon.  Just aiming for a little out of the Box from us as Bertera Nissan!

Monster trucks make everyone smile and they have been around in the RC world for a long time. What makes them so cool is their big size and ability to cover any type of terrain. We’ve been lucky enough to have a lot of monster trucks to choose from, even though some have come and gone.
