Tekin all the way but you need to order a hotwire to get the full potential.

I remember them tamiya ones, I always had the urge to touch the heat shield, even though it cleary stated "hot, do not touch" !

You certainly could have cut foam wing cores with my Novak wires on Sunday!
It was hot enough to melt the solder on the battery and deans connectors!

I got my FXR from Apex models but they didn't list the hotwire and TBH for what I need for trailing I don't really need to alter the programming much. But if I do I am sure someone will be really helpful and bring their hotwire to a meet
I used to use a Tekin 411 back in my buggy racing days, good esc's I still have one kicking about somewhere
Ah yes the good old ceramic resistor that used to shatter if it got knocked, I saved you the trouble of touching it, they did get fricking hot

The Fxr is perfectly fine for Scalers without the Hotwire.

You can adjust plenty for what we do.

No problem at all, when it arrives here that is!

Agreed, it works straight out of the box, the only thing you can't access is the throttle curves, which I think would be good for the slow scale speeds we do... but then again, if you have expo function on the TX then it doesn't matter anyway.

The other thing the Hotwire allows (not cutting foam wings ) is updating the software - my FXR was dated August 09 on the box, I believe there have been few software updates since then?

Once I receive it and get it work, I will bring it to the meet... and you can play all you like

Haven't seen them vids before - good find. They look good, but they also look a little top heavy for the terrain we normally run on.

Yep, I posted an axle question in the multiaxle part of the forum and someone kindly replied and explain, seems easy enough, just need a few truck parts.

does anyone on here make their own chassis?

Seems alot of people buy a chassis and put their axles on them. I've just done a very rough drawing for a scale ALRC comp motor will try and get the tube today if anyone knows of any cheap supplies of 1meter lengths of 5mm external tubing with a 2.5 or 3mm internal hole let me know. Will start a thread once building starts. Curious why people buy chassis' thats all.
