On a suggestion from Rajat,I started this thread.


Well,I decided to go the track today.My brother was driving,I was the 'navigator' with google maps.Things went well till we reached the outskirts of the city.The roads.OMG!!! Shocked  Angry Angry

Well,we went off the path thrice.Scraped the roads a few times.Finally,reached the track. *sigh of relief*.Called Jayanth and guess what,we were in the wrong parking lot. Cheesy All that effort paid off.The Track at last. *sigh of relief again*


Met Jayanth and a guy called Abhishek.Spoke for a while,ran my slash.Those guys said I should treat it like a car,not a baby. Grin So,drove it on NiMH and it was an exhilarating experience.Jumping,cornering.........had SOOO much fun.Stopped and waited for Shashank and Divyam to arrive.They came separated by a few seconds.Finally met some more guys.So,we started again and practiced and played around.Had fun racing Divyam.Psst,I beat him Grin Roll Eyes  Cool

Saw the revos and a pulse running.Nitro sounds good.Played with the guys.Crashed a lot.The slash came out without much damage.

Had lots of problems with my 'navigation' on the way home.My brother is slightly angry now and I'm typing this.But all that trouble was WORTH it.It was a SUPERB day at the track.My thanks to all the guys who were there.Had a BLAST.

Now,its cleaning and (possible) damage assessment on my slash.

Now you guys must be thinking ,"I read through all of this,WHERE ARE THE PICS!!!???"Grin .Well,Divyam and Shashank took some pics.They'll put them up later.

Today,we had 2 slash 4x4s(Divyam,me),2 revos(Jayanth,Shashank),one pulse(Abhishek),one TT MT4 G3 and a TT Tomahawk.(Both were Joe's cars).


Joe's MT4G3 was AWESOME!!It didn't handle as well as I expected it to.Even with a center diff,it wheelied.Still,it was one bad@$$ car.

Couldn't have asked for a better saturday! Met many RC enthusiasts, had a great time running at the track with some peace of mind  Grin Went to meet Jayanth, Divyam and Gandhar but it was nice to meet Abhishek and Joe too. Lost a lot of time getting to the track and i think those who had already reached lost some time. Sorry to everyone i kept waiting, will make it on-time the next time. Running at the track was awesome fun  Smiley lost count of how many tanks i ran today. All in all, had a great time and we should do this more often  Wink

@Gandhar: Even while returning i lost my way !! Got stuck in MAD traffic and reached after 1.5 hours. May be i'll hit the track tomorrow too

PS: Rajath and tassem left to meet. Hope it'll happen soon  Smiley

Here are a few pics i clicked and a small video

Not bad. I have 2 x 2400 Nimh as of now.

Do they have peak chargers for lipos there? Or one has to carry their own charger?

Yeah. Grin

The magnets start getting damaged at around 200F.My motor was doing 130-140 when I checked.But it was close to the limit.It ran cooler with lipos.The rotor is around 10F hotter than the can.180 is the max safe limit.

Hey with 40F you have some leverage. With nitro's we're told not to exceed 270F and we keep it between 250 to 260. Is it the same for electrics ?

Its a nice 'toy' to play with on the track Giggle .More important for the nitro guys though.Still,its a great tool on the track.

BL Motors are meant to go that hot!

I think I found out why my VXL was running hot on that day.I suffer from 'nitro finger'.It means I blip the throttle.That causes amp spikes and raises temps.I should drive smoothly from now on.I remember blipping the throttle on the straight and the corners.SO it warrants a change in driving style.I hope that one run did not cause any problems.

And if my ESC didn't go into thermal shutdown,I don't think my motor became too hot.

Was the track horrible or was it reasonably ok? I heard that it is in a horrible condition as of now....

Sorry about your bearing. Was this the new one?

From the videos it looks like its not been maintained well. I see a lot of small stones on the surface. No problems for the monsters i guess Wink

The track was in a bad condition. Small branches, lots and lots of leaves (kept getting stuck between the dogbone and turnbuckle) and gravel heaps and dried bushes. I did not expect anything so i didnt have any problem with the track condition. Hope things are better next time.

The tyres gave up - hardly any traction - easy to drift Cheesy

It was more of a bashing session for me Cheesy

Nope this was the stock bearing. It happened after an hour of running or so.
