I'm kinda excited to do it, this is the best R/C I've had.. all the other ones where Radio shack units.. This one is a Traxxas 1/16 scale Revo. I upgraded it of course.. so it can take a bit of a beating...



N after some hard runs.

We have old school RC trucks (Circa mid to late 80s) we are big Tamiya fans. My dad has a Monster Beetle and Blackfoot, and I have a Super Blackfoot. I don't have any pictures of our trucks, but here are a few I scavenged of the internet so you can see what i am talking about.

This is making me want to dig them out again, I think I will next time I am back out to the farm.

I bet they are pretty fun!

I beat mine pritty hard, dang thing does 50 + mph. Some times upside down even. Lol. This one will handle a 5 ft drop with ease. I can't wait to build a track! Than I'll get to spend more on parts I'm sure. Lol


What kinda speed do yours do abouts? Do they make a bunch of hop up parts for them?

There are some original hopup parts, but they are hard to find. My dads trucks are almost 30 years old.

As for speed, I wouldn't know what to guess. With bigger motors, they can really fly. I have an older racing motor on mine, I dont know the specs, haven't messed with them in years. Here are a few videos.

upgraded:

YouTube - Super Fast Tamiya Super Blackfoot-Wow!

Those are pretty good lookin.


They are kinda addicting lol, I followed mine with a vehicle today, and it got up to 43 mph! Its geared down a bit, so I'm sure it could go faster, but for how I use it, speed isn't all that important.


On a side not, my Dog can keep up with it pretty good! Lol


Josh, you guys have jumps and all that on the track you hhad built? I'm not too sure what I want to do to makke one..

It was a circle track, with ups and downs on it, but no cliffs and could be run in either direction. there were plenty of places to catch air. It was probably about 20x40 or so, if I remember right.
