My friend Jernej helped me out with the car maintenance yesterday, he is very keen on RC to say the least . Installed an Kimbrough servo saver on the Blitzer beetle and did some drilling to reinforce the chassis, but that will be a post on its own.
we took the Blitzer Beetle and the Blitz out for a late bash in a grassy field . turns out the grass was a bit too high as the Blitz Firebolt 15t motor got smokey . No big problem, as i was planing on changing the motor & ESC from the df03 to it anyway , so now i will do that and the DF03 is going back to brushed running , just can’t decide on which motor yet , probably a Tamiya Super Stock BZ.
The Blitzer Beetle again performed admirably, i can’t belive how much fun the little car is . it went trough two packs with no issues, just one shock screw backed out , but i fixed that . great little impromptu outing.
