Beater thread.

Post by askbob »

I put together an old stock motor beater for my kids to play around with. I let them paint over an old body I had, as you can see... :D After they get the hang of it, I have another all white parts gold pan to put together that will be much nicer to look at. This is the first hoopty I've built to play with, and I must admit it is quite fun. Err, fun for my kids that is. :lol:

Post up your cobbled up, thrown together, nice beater RC10, or other.

Still my favorite beater even though I went from a Mamba Max 5700 to a Johnson 540. :mrgreen: On a completely unrelated note my wife threw away that vintage Big Johnson bottle koozie... said it was false advertising. :(

Well I was expecting to see nothing more than Bob in a wife beater sporting a mullet. I was shocked when I saw an RC10. :shock: :lol:

Pardon the return of an old thread, wanted to post this up but it took a bit.
My budget beater build. Nice and high ground clearance for off-roading down near the river. Fleabay Reedy SC700BL with a brand new 4900kv motor, b4 slipper mod, 6cell NIMH, Tower scratch-n-dent Tactic radio. Started out as the leftover parts from another ebay car, special thanks to mikea96 for most of the missing bits.
Good setup for being just a hair bonkers but not breaking everything instantly. All I ever ran BITD was stock motors and nicads, so it's plenty. Brushless is truly amazing...
Rollbar wire came from another Ebay car, works well. Destined to break.... :twisted:
