It was time for the Tekno to shed its lipstick and shelf queen shell , and dress in its bashing armour instead. Cleaned up recycled JConcepts HiFlow practice/bash body, JConcepts Chopper tyres on Serpent rims, T-Bone Racing front and rear bash bumpers reinstalled.
I have 3 bodies for the SCT410.3 now, all have their challenges due to the 335mm wheelbase. This Jconcepts HiFlow fits OK, wheels are not centered in the arches no matetr how I position it, but I have reached a good enough compromise where it works well enough for practice/bashing and the initial shakedowns.
The initial shakedown was on a flat , prepped grass sports field ( cricket /soccer ) , so had plenty of room to get the acceleration, speed runs and a feel for the basic handling , a few embankments for some mild jumping.
On 2S, acceleration and punch was O.K, but not what I was expecting, top end was lacking compared to the Hunter BL running a 3970KV / 3S , so I was left wanting more
From reading in on posts from Jerry-Rigged who runs the same 4600KV / MMX setup, I was expecting to see something more similar to the Hunter on 3S.
I'll have a go at recalibrating the Radio just in case I haven't got the throttle dialed in correctly.
Truck has a 15 Tooth pinion , not sure how far I can go up with the 4600KV ?
