  1. Glad we got the TF2 early, still “OUT OF STOCK”!!!! We finally got ahead of the crowds on this one. Check this vid out—pretty nice build:

  2. need to find a water proof ESC I’m guessing Traxxas. Not sure if we need drag brakes or not, my CC01 has the Traxxas ESC and so far I like it.

  3. V6steeda had mentioned this 60$ waterproof Combo for the TF2:

    540 55T Brushed+60A Waterproof ESC Combo

    Check out the 540 55T Brushed Motor + 60A Waterproof ESC Combo for Rock Crawlers! The 540 55T brushed motor offers all the low-end torque for climbing and getting through tight situations, in a low-cost motor. Aluminum brush hoods help dissipate heat for better brush life and consistent power.

    A waterproof circuit board on the 60A brushed ESC means you can now run your crawler virtually anywhere. Pre-installed connectors for motor and battery connections make this combo plug-n-play, so you’ll be up and crawling right out of the box.

  4. CHECK this video out. NICE BUILD—-but analyze the driver figure when it rolls up to the camera. Looks like the steering wheel is linked up to the wheel…..or a small servo with Y-split wiring:

    • yeah looked through the comments and the poster never answered any questions—–i was curious as to his selection of electronics and the steering wheel trick.

    Speed controller= XL-5 (waterproof) =40$
    Servos= 2 Traxxas #2075 (waterproof / found in the revo. 125 oz/in power)= 50$
    i’ll use my flysky 2.4ghz radio receiver and install it in the molded fuel cell and waterproof it.
    Tamiya CR Tuned 35T Rock Crawler Motor TAM54114 =35$
    —————————————————————————————–
    TOTAL cost to complete= 125$

    Got any opinions about the parts above? any suggestions on better components for the cost?
