My dad and I went out for a little bashing even though it looked like it was about to rain and was also very cold outside. Today's bashers are the Tamiya Tamtech Buggy Champ and the Thunder Tiger FM-1e.
I swapped the already fast 800kv brushless motor in my Tamtech for an even faster 9200kv brushless motor. I just wanted to test out the speed increase of the new motor on the Tamtech. It was really fast, but I think it can be pushed a bit harder with higher gearing since the motor wasn't even warm (or maybe it's just because my hands were freezing already). The vids for the Tamtech is not too exciting since it's an offroad buggy running on pavement. Next time I will seek out some dirt to run on. But I did manage to catch this clip when my dad tried it out.
However, as expected from the Tamtech, nothing broke after this crash except for the two little plastic piece on top of the body. They are just secured to the body by little flanges and can be pulled out. These flew right off during the roll, too bad you can't see that in the vid. This Tamtech is one of the strongest RC's I have. The fact that I can drop in the fastest motor available for this scale in the car without upgrading anything is already impressive. I just ordered some aftermarket gears to see if I can squeeze some more speed of it, we will see if the little guy can handle more power.
I also have TONS of footage of my dad driving the bike. But most of them don't last any longer than 10 seconds because most of them end up crashing. This one is the longest and best one. The bikes are VERY fun to drive because they take skill to drive nicely. The side metal guards on this bike is very short, so they don't help much when the bike leans too much because by the time they touch the ground, the bike would have lost its momentum.
