Can’t seem to get any sleep these days

I’m having a hard time getting sleep these days, and thus have a bit more time on my hands. Since there’s not much to do in the middle of the night, I might as well write.

I wrote about a Blazer nitro that I got, and am thinking of remaking/rebuilding. Well, turns out getting parts are a bit of a hassle so it’s been put on the back burner. I’ve got a lot of ideas, but not yet the know how to make them a reality.

What I do have as of yesterday (Monday), is this:
IMG_1826This is a Maverick Strada MT Evo 1/10th 4wd. ┬áIt’s RTR (Ready to Run) and comes fully equipped. 2.4GHz radio system and plenty of power for the price. It comes stock with a 1800mAh NiMh battery pack, but this will not last long driving. The stock ESC can handle a 2S lipo pack, which in my opinion is a must.

Saying that, I have of course upgraded:

IMG_1832This is a Robbe EVO 5000mAh 30C/60C
Charging current of 1 – 4C, which is good, but I think very few have chargers that can handle 20A current… I’m not even sure how advisable it is to charge with such high currents! This battery will give for some great running time as well as a little extra oomph of power.

Takes a good while to charge up!

I didn’t have much light/time to go out and do some real driving today, but I did shoot a quick video in my yard (I’m really bad at this sort of filming, but I’m learning).

Thank you for tuning in, be sure to check out my feeds:
