I think it is very slow, but indoors may seem fast (probly too fast) I would guess about 10 mph or more.

On the dogbone, I just got done building my second td and I remembered that I installed an extra o-ring on the outsidfe of the bone (just like on the inside)It is possible you forgot the oring?

I've ran my first truck nearly double speed as stock and never lost a dogbone, just keep loosening the wheel nuts. I can't seem to keep them tight.

thanks ill check out the oring thing i read somewhere when you wire motors in series the turns of the motors become additive ex: 12t+12t=24t is this true? if so a good esc would cost half as much as a super rooster and if i use 2 12t would that make good power and could i get decent run times with a good pack? thanks again

Yes, that is right about the motors. They will also have about half the power.

I've been using white out on the nuts, I probly will go to thread lock soon.

I had more fun with my td than I've had in a long time, my whole front yard was solid ice from the freezing rain. I could do full throttle power slides, spin-outs, donuts . I can see why people enjoy drifting, that's basically what was going on.....

I could get the truck to slide exactly straight side ways for over 30 feet.

When motors are wired in series, they are getting half the voltage. They pull far less amps. Not sure if it is exactly half though on the amps.

we got a few more inches too. stuck inside ...again.

I just finished my td. I did something pretty weird to help break in the motors. I always hook motors in series to break them in. When doing this on the td it acts like a center diff. Allowing the rears or fronts to spin faster or slower. Prety weird on the bench with the wheels off the ground.

I just noticed I have 2 bent dogbones in front. Are there any slightly heavier duty ones?

I've never had them pop out.

TL01 parts for Detonator

Hey guys,

has anyone tried using the TL01 hop-up and aluminium after market parts on a detonator?

Are there other types of parts that can be used on the Det?

well turns out the motors i got dont have adjustable timing so could i just reverse the positive and negative wires on the front motor and it would then turn in the right direction also will this hurt the motor or esc i am going to wire the motors in parallel thanks

It will reverse rotation, buut the timing will go negative (if it's 0 that's good) If it has timing then it is not good.

I just put 2 14 tuirns in mine, and for breakin I wired in series. It's kinda cool like haveing a center diff. Front end burn outs and will go around a corner pretty good too.
