MOA in my future....
« on: July 21, 2012, 11:41:15 PM »
Well it looks like I will have a MOA for the next season. I will be picking up some parts soon that will let me make my Lossi Comp Crawler a MOA. I love the worm gears so I am sticking with them.  I will be sticking with the stock chassis for now but who knows what will happen down the line.

I will be picking your brains soon enough on ESC and radio options. The learning curve will be steep but one thing I know it will be fun ( and expensive). Ha ha! Looky forward to playing with the big boys. With any luck I will be let into the Pro Class. If not... Well we all run the same courses. I can test my metal there. Game on!

Psssttt, you want the noob class. first place points in noob only gets you pretty close to last place points in pro..  >:D

Another down side, once you've played for any lenght of time with a MOA, very hard to go back.
If it ain`t broke.... Try harder.....

Thanks for the encouraging words! Ha ha!

I am still in the learning stages of crawling. I will do fine as long as there are a few guys to play with. There have been a few gates this year I have cleared and some of the top Pro drivers have not. Admittedly a rare occurrence, it has still happened. I know a MOA kit will better allow me to mix it up with some of the  new Pro drivers. I'll take my chances.

Rig aside I have to slow down. Again today I finished a few courses with over a minute left. If I had not rushed I think I would have missed hitting a few gates and not had a "roll over" that  I needed a "touch repair" on. I used to bug WTFox about speeding around on the rocks. "It's called Crawling for a reason" I used to say. I need to take these words to heart......

Nah, just go as fast as you want...   >:D

It's real easy to go slow, a professional will always finish with at least 3 minutes to spare................... ::)
Sommmabich, who put that gate there?

I am just "keeping up with the Jones". I see a lot of MOA rigs popping up. You have one, Darwin, 4Mods, the list goes on. Sure I could get an XR10 but what fun would that be.....

NFG never worry about how much time is left on the clock once the course is finished.  Only worry about the next gate and getting through them all in time.  If you finish with 4:30 left then great but its just as good as finishing with 0:01 left.

As far as electronics go: sidewinder micro`s $50-60 a piece
GT3 around a $100 hacked and ready to go or a 4pl for about $250new.
CC bec
400oz plus servo (think you already have this)
Now don`t cheap out here motors!!! Cheapos will do but some Brood or Holmes should be on your menu and will serve you for along time!!! Plus they are rebuildable for cheap!!!
I slag all Axial rigs but in reality they are a great rig. You'll love it.

Ha ha! Mike said that once then realized we were both at a Comp at the exact same time. No Bruce Wyane/Batman hi-jinks going on here. WTFox is a busy man right now. He will be out again. I can't wait. I am looking forward to kicking his butt once again. Ha ha!

Ha ha! I have two months yet and then some. I will be paying for the MOA motor mounts this weekend ( PayPal) and hooking up with a local member of this site to grab his XR10 wheels. Then starts the slow process of getting all the other parts. Once they are all on the bench I will start the build. Up untill then I will have the Losi CC to play with.

Should be an intresting rig when I am done. Kind of a Mutt. And we all know mutts are the best dogs....
