Today I fulfill a request that many novice and intermediate hobbyists have asked me about. Smoke Kits and Electronics. Since I am building a New ‘PROJECT OVERKILL” 4×4 GMC TopKick 1/10th scale radio controlled 4×4 trail truck – I think this is a great opportunity to approach this as easily as possible. I have it all hooked up, and laid out on a nice white background for you to easily identify and easily understand what you are looking at.
The ESC I have chosen is the Hobbywing XeRun AXE with FOC. It is a waterproof, brushless, sensored esc.. and can take up to a 3s lipo battery.
The Motor upgrade was a no brainer for me.. as OVERKILL should have more than enough power to go through mud and difficult terrain. Today, I show you a 550 can size motor, that is a 2700kv brushless installed on a beautiful SUPERSHAFTY transmission. These things are brilliant.. and yes, very F****** expensive!! But.. this is what it takes to build a BULLET PROOF Tough Truck. The 13.8 wheel base on this GMC Top Kick will make it a climbing machine with all that torque.
Also .. I wanted to show you the smoke kit option that is available. I purchased the ADRC smoke kit from an online store for about 49$ USD. It is not the normal smoke kit that I would use in this application.. but it seems slightly more practical. The only thing I dont like about it.. is there are many areas for the “oil” to escape..and it could be a messy process. I will have to consider moving it to an “open” area of the chassis so I dont get everything covered in oil during a roll over. The good thing is.. It can be easily removed, or bypassed if I dont want to use it.
Enjoy the video folks.. I hope it helps teach some of you that this really isnt so hard.. and that ANYONE can play in this hobby. You dont need to most expensive stuff to start.. there are all types of price points, so the hobby can be enjoyed by most folks.
Thanks for watching!
