home made RC monster truck

What welding projects are you working on? Are you proud of something you built?
How about posting some pics so other welders can get some ideas?

Two stroke 110 octane and Motul 800 oil :) And it is loud even with a silencer on it, and don't even think about running on your yard as it will destroy it with a set of super spikes on the back. lol I'm actually thinking about selling it, because it's hard to find a larger enough place to run and it destroys any turf that it comes in contact with. I have a couple of old Kyosho MP9 buggies I bought back in the 90's, both were Nitro. I converted one of them to Tekin 1350KV 6S and it absolutely blows the nitro version into the weeds. Plus it's quiet and has full power as soon as you pull the trigger. I thought about putting in one of MGM's electric setups https://www.mgm-controllers.com/cars/lo ... n-kit.html in this 1/5th scale they run up to 15S and around 20hp crazy fast but Iv'e heard of a few melt downs and they get expensive. I'll probably go back to 1/8th electric, I love the instant power and being to run it most anywhere, like you, looks like your running in your back yard? This one from 6 years ago is only 13hp and it's crazy: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AtjOcGdc85A

indeed ! your truck is a grass killer !

brushless has a lot of advantages , and you're right, it allows me to run in this garden without too much noise

regarding 1/5 scale brushless, my all time favorite vid is this one : https://youtu.be/ahuRlZc4n80
the sheer power and the reaction of the guys around always brings a smile on my face !

did you check my chanel and videos about 1/8 buggies ? i run 4s lipos with a long gearing. i just finished to shoot my next video : 5 flips with a 1/8th buggy on 5s ! crazy flipping !

My Gawd! That is crazy! How many feet in the air was that 1/8th scale? Can't wait to see the video:) I wish I could drive half as good as that 1/5th driver... ;) Love how he was crossing up that Losi!
