2005.06.28, 09:11 PM
Ok. I got my monster today and have already run 8 AAA's through it. I have driven it all day. I have used all the different pinion gears and my Monster still ownt pull good wheelies. On fresh batteries they go for about a foot and then die but I have see in vcids people do them for a long time. Can sumone help me with ideas for more torque. just to let you know I am going in reverse then slamming it into forward all the way and it just zips away and doesnt do a wheelie.

make sure you are using good quality rechargable batterys. Also an x-speed motor will help too.

I run durcell rechargables along with an xspeed motor. I can pull off big wheelies for over an hour.

alright thanks. Do you recommend an mAH for the rechargables....600, 750?

Here, these are what I run. http://www.duracell.com/products/rechargeable.asp?id=42&

The AAAs are 750 mah and only take 30 minutes to charge. There are many other battery options as well. I understand that most people use other types which may even be better. I'm sure you'll get all types of info if you jus search "batteries". good luck!

ok...another question....Motor 1 (http://mini-zracer.com/shop/product.php?pid=692) or Motor 2 (http://mini-zracer.com/shop/product.php?pid=8) I have the money for both but which one is better for a monster. ANyone have these. Good torque and speed?

i think the first motor you are looking at you need fet upgrade for it.out of those two i would get the second one but i would sugest get this motor


it is the fastest motor you can buy with out fet upgrade and i say run the 10tooth with it and you could pull a wheelie for a while.

ok....I looked around and got the motor wkn advised me to get. I read some reviews and everyone says it is fast and can pull wheelies like none other. i am happy with my decision. I also went to the store and bought 8 rechargable Energizer AAA's that are 850 mAH. They make the car scream. I love them and my new motor will just add to the setup plus my new alloy front and rear shock stays.

Thanks everyone that helped

sounds great. I'm thinking now you'll need to upgrade to some stronger gears with all that wheelie pulling power :D

haha..thabnsk guys..I am lookin into have my brother use the CNC machine at work to do that for me......anyway i just got back from War of the Worlds while my batteries were doing there first 3 hour charge...that movie is awesome just to let you know and i put the batteries in...(which normally take 15 minutes to charge but the first is supposed to be 3 hours) and i can pull wheelies like no toher....with the stock motor. If i give it full thrtottle it pulls the front end up a little but the reverse trick is the best. I can now make it roll over on accident going to fast in corners so I cant wait to see what the new motor will due. Thank you guys I love my MZM now.
