Brushless Mini-Z F1 OUTDOOR run

Just to test the brushless motor, i decided to punch this F1 outdoors although the TX Throttle is set at 60% EPA only. I am a little nervous that the car would crash due to the un-even road.

Anyway, before the run i made sure that i have enough ground clearance for at least a good hi-speed run;

Here is my 'outdoor' setup for this test.

I used just 4 ordinary AAA NiCad Batteries.

I took out a couple of Auldey Racing Tin tires and mounted it on the F1;

hmmm... ugly!

Even on the front tires;

I had to do this just to protect the original wheels and the under-chassis from the sharp cement so that it will give me at least 5mm of clearance from the ground. Obviously, there will be some changes in the drive ratio with the new rear tire diameter.

Here is she as i progressively increase the speed on each pass as i get to feel the road. Throttle is at 60% EPA only or it could be bye-bye F1

great mod, great vid...

mods, can we have this moved to the f-1 thread?

for future posts you can post in the f-1 section

you can probably post all your succeeding improvements in one thread...

i combined all of your threads into
eqmod's brushless 2.4gzh f-1 conversion

so that it would be easier to follow...

hope this helps

Thanks. Yes, moderator please do move the posted F1 threads to the F1 section.

In the meantime, here is another outdoor run at 80% Throttle EPA. Eventually CRASHED at the end

Speed is increased progressively on each pass.

That's the link to your dyno run, I don't see the 80% outdoor run but I'm sure it will be impressive.

All this reminds me of the days when we used to fit giant Mamba Micros into Xmod cars -- one particular GSR member spooled the dyno to 100km/h at half throttle and shredded center shaft gears every run. Good times.
