I can't pin it down to one particular big crash. I'm not the greatest driver and I crash a fair bit (think cartwheels into metal fences), but I have the feeling it was more of a fatigue thing as the crack opened up after a race where I didnt have any big hits.

Fingers crossed the parts arrive from Hong Kong today or I wont be racing it this weekend.

I'm really torn between finding another m05 or getting one of those hobbyking m-rage 4wd cars.....

I bought one of the M-rage's - no idea if it's any good though - it's still sitting in the box! I couldn't say no for the price!

it's a rebrand of Nanda NRX-12, which according to this is pretty decent... http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric-ro ... -12-a.html

hurry up and build it so you can tell me what motor etc. to use with it

I've owned a few different 4wd's over the years - but never really put much time into them! The VMII was pretty impressive. The Active 210 was a bit 'soft' and broke easily. And the Xpress was awesome at killing diffs even with low power.

The HW system in the 4wd's is PLENTY of power - they are seriously off-tap with that much power! But still fun!

from what I was reading, the HW system might be a bit much for it - a standard m05 type motor and ESC in it might be smarter?

this is a good thread for them, post #77 lists some maybe essential bits

I'd probably stick a 21.5 brushless motor in it.

what's a decent but not expensive one of those?



is it eligible for the 4wd mini class? would need a hobbwing combo, but otherwise OK?

A cheap good 21.5 motor is the the turnigy trackstar. That is what I run for touring car combined with either the 80 or 120A turnigy trackstar esc.


As for the 4WD Mini class, I guess you would have to run the HW combo, but otherwise it would be legal.

#2 daughter and I were having a fang about at the track with the 3s lipo and I backed it in to the curb.... first broken bit in ages

is the alloy rear plate thingy worth bothering with?

Did the whole shaft pull through the plastic? I've never seen that part break. Good job.

I don't think I'd bother with the alloy. I'd reckon someone at your club would have a spare plastic one lying around.

How'd you go with repairing this simon? Still racing?

Our club hasn't raced for 2 months due to weather. Hopefully we can get on the track this weekend.

oh yeah, bought another plate... not an issue, raced a couple of weeks ago, I'm not getting any better at it


but Hobbyking had the m.rage on special on the weekend, so I'm putting that together now :)

it's a bit bloody fast... standard tyres that come with it aren't quite up to the job. I just transferred all of the electronics from my m05 to it
