PostSubject: Short Course trucks   Tue Sep 07, 2010 1:14 am

Well been fancying one for ages

An been watching them all get released one after the other, an the one that caught my eye when it got released was the

HONG NOR SCRT10

its 4WD,come with a 3mm alloy chassis, 3 diffs, CNC engine mounts,Sway bars all round, Universal driveshafts, an loads more, so really stood out in my eyes
It seems to be aimed at the more race bread market, but should stand up to the normal abuse we throw at them wink

So Anyway, Ive now finally got one GOOD

Just finished putting it together
They come 80% PRE built
So Its simply a case of putting the tyres on the wheels an gluing them
Fitting the bead locks
Installing the front bumper
An then adding all your stuff, Motor, ESC, servo, battery, an radio gear
Then getting the shell sprayed an stickered up


Motor an ESC wise Ive gone for the

LOSI 1/10 Xcelorin S 4.5T Brushless Combo, form Modelsport
Along with a
HPI Plazma 7.4V 4000mAh 20C LIPO

So here She is GOOD






















I haven't run it just yet as I still need to install the radio gear, but will do soon GOOD


an once ive had my first run I will let you know my thoughts on it wink



Safe to say currently though I bloody love it, Its a fantastic kit, an I think it looks stunning wink

Thanks Matt
I hope it is, what do you think I should do to keep it cool then ??

Vent the shell, add a heat sink to the motor ??

Or just worry about the gearing

Currently its stock gearing, so nothing too extreme wink

Basically to summerise sensored motors are gay.

Looks awsome mark ;) if you got a slash I would stop talking to you lol

Just run it first time with the shell of and keep putting your finger on the motor to make sure it dosent get to hot. Slightly more important here as to my knoladge sensored motors are more easily damaged by heat.

Having seen the repairs an the bills that must go with that, happening to the Slashes at the 'T' Party I'm afraid I wouldn't have one
They seem to take a beating, but man alive how many drive shafts did Nick do in 1 day .......... 12 or something


Bugger so sensored may not be a great Idea, will keep my eyes on it, an do as you say on the first run

What's the best way to keep temps down ???

seeing as no one has answered you Hoss, I'm assuming the motor temps should be fine. I think ten seconds is a sensible time but have seen three seconds mentioned, any shorter or welding your fingers to the can and it's 'too warm' lol

If needed then you can buy a heatsink for the motor. Some have mounts for fans too to further aid cooling. Try it before spending any more ;) Personally I think you should be OK as there's a lot of air under them shells there.

I quite fancied the slash as my next rc for their resilience and for the waterproof aspect but the driveshafts lost were mental. It put me off :(

thats the spirit lol

Best way to keep the temp down is to run it on low cells and not bomb round at full speed but thats boring lol

Basically there are two things that make them hot, and if you undenstand them youll be best place to counter the problems.

Firstly, spending to much time spining at full speed which is genrally cause by gearing being too low.

Secondly the motor drawing to much current. to generate the torque required This is far more common as its caused by over gearing and not having a big enough motor for the car, both of which make for higher top end speed hence it being more common lol.

So basically the idea is to gear for a sweet spot between the two. Fans heat sinks ect help but dont bother with the crapy clip on ones they just fall off all the time. Best thing is to just go and try it you might not have any heat issues rofl .

Thanks Steve

Makes good sense that GOOD

Not sure I will get at it tomorrow, as I've got Hospital all day tomorrow, so might be Wednesday before I get any radio gear in for a run wink

I to quite liked the SLASH's but yeah the drive-shaft failure seemed MAD to me
I know there is Fixes out there an hop-up drive shafts now, but seems mad they fail all to often to me GOOD
