I really like the red one. Might buy one for a review....
Only.bad thing about that car.is the motor esc..
Those are the more cheaper reedy motors.. Baaah
There is nothing wrong with the motor or esc for a RTR buggy
Yes for rtr but it will be the first thibg you'll upgrade..
The steering servo will be the first thing IMO...
Oh ye forgot that..
I was at the track three months ago...a guy had 3 rtr kits and his kids went through all 3 servos in an hour. I don't like RTR period no matter who builds it.
The more I look at the new RC8.2e RTR the more I want to get one...
Why don't you convert you nitro buggy into electric?
I too much love my nitro buggy to convert it to electric
I just ordered my 8.2e RTR today....
Too late !
Have you gotten yours out yet? Not too many RC 8.2e RTR reviews out yet.
The servo on mine went kaput on the second set of batteries I put through it. Installed a new servo, works great and does a much better job in the corners. I thought it was fine before, but it's really great now. Very disapointed at the breakage though - even if it is only a mediocre servo it should at least last and do the job of steering the buggy for more than 45 minutes.
On Battery #3 the motor gear moved forward, it is easily reached and a 2 minute job to fix, but if you are racing it, definitely take the screw out and locktite it first.
Also on battery #3, the ESC unglued from the servo tape and knocked the button to the off position, killing the buggy. Again this is something to fix before going racing.
Minor: One wheel lug was very loose, not even hand tight. make sure to check the lugs before first start-up.
Another guy bought the red one, (thankfully, I opted for blue), and he broke the rear chasis brace and because of that, bent the rear drive shaft. Not sure if he broke it bashing or at the track, he was being grumpy and wasn't very talkative. He has the aluminum Factory Team Kit chasis braces on order. I was looking forward to racing him side by side.
What about motor and esc temps?
Hmmm, didn't take them. The motor certainly didn't feel over hot, not sure about the ESC. I was able to put my thumb on the motor for 4+ seconds, going by feel it was fine, and didn't get discernably hotter after a ran a second pack through it.
That's a good news. I love cool electronics
I received mine today youhou!!!!!!!!!!!
