rocketrob's -- Duratrax Vendetta ST-SR (long wheelbase conversion)

Beitrag  rocketrob am So Nov 28, 2010 2:42 pm

Pardon my German - I enjoy the fact that you guys over in Europe are fans of 1/18th scale minis, and also race them like we do over in the U.S., and I thought I would include a few photos of mine for you to enjoy.
Verzeihen Sie meine Deutsch - ich genieße die Tatsache, dass euch über in Europa Fans von 1:18 minis sind, und auch Rennen wie wir sie über in den USA, und ich dachte, ich würde ein paar Fotos von mir sind für Sie zu genießen .







A little over a year ago Duratrax came out with another version of the Vendetta, the SC (or Short Course truck), but many people including myself had already been using custom modified extended chassis plates to take advantage of the longer wheelbase SC chassis. PhatBodies in the UK subsequently came out with a buggy-style body called the "Bolt" - and it's proven to be a winning combination. The SC chassis plate has stretched the wheelbase to 185mm (from 160mm) which make the car much more stable at high speeds and over the jumps.
Vor etwas mehr als vor einem Jahr Duratrax kam mit einer anderen Version des Vendetta, der SC (oder Short Course Truck), aber viele Leute darunter auch ich war schon mit benutzerdefinierten geändert verlängert Chassisplatten die Vorteile der längeren Radstand SC Chassis nehmen. PhatBodies in Großbritannien später kam mit einem Buggy-Stil Körper als "Bolt" - und es ist erwiesen, eine gewinnende Kombination. Der SC Grundplatte hat der Radstand um 185 mm (ab 160mm), die das Auto machen viel stabiler bei hohen Geschwindigkeiten und über die Sprünge gestreckt.

The guys running the LRP Shark over in the UK are just using the same Duratrax SC chassis that they've importd from the United States.
The conversion can be made simply by obtaining the chassis plate, center driveshaft, and battery hold down plate - and, of course, the PhatBodies Bolt body.

Die Jungs laufen die LRP Shark über im Vereinigten Königreich sind nur unter Verwendung der gleichen Duratrax SC Chassis, dass sie aus den Vereinigten Staaten importd habe.
Die Konvertierung kann nur durch den Erwerb der Grundplatte, in der Mitte Antriebswelle gemacht werden, und die Batterie halten Platte - und, natürlich, die PhatBodies Bolt Körper.

As most of you know, the Vendetta line-up is just another variant of the same car produced by LRP and called the Shark over there - though the cars were produced original by a company called Anderson, who then sold the manufacturing rights to the car to Duratrax in the USA, LRP in Europe, and Yokomo in Aisa.
Da die meisten von Ihnen wissen, die Vendetta Line-up ist nur eine andere Variante des gleichen Auto von LRP produziert und rief die Shark dort - obwohl die Autos produziert wurden von einer Firma namens Anderson, dann verkauft die Rechte an der Herstellung Auto Original zu Duratrax in den USA, LRP in Europa und Yokomo in Aisa.



I've also changed my set-up a little since my days of running the short wheelbase car, so I've included a copy of my set-up sheet to be of assistance. Enjoy. Hallo Smilie
Ich habe auch mein Set-up ein wenig, da meine Tage der Ausführung des kurzen Radstandes Auto geändert, also habe ich eine Kopie meiner Set-Up-Sheet auf der Hilfe einbezogen werden. Genießen Sie. Hallo Smilie

I feel honored, as you have replied in English. Top Smilie

Depending on the track - I use a Novak Mongoose 10.5 for a large/highspeed layout, and 13.5 for smaller/more technical layouts.


In my other, with the truggy-style body, I use a Traxxas VXL 1/16th system - but I much prefer the sensored Mongoose system. it is much smoother.

No problem Very Happy

Yeah, i think the Novak Mongoose is the best micro-brushless Rock Smilie


Could you post some photos of your Chunk? That would be cool Smile

I recently obtained a Tekin RS Pro speed control, and plan on giving that a try - not that I am having any issues with my Mongoose ESC - just to see any differences. But I think the Novak sensored system is the best all-around on the market for these cars.

I did not want to rain on your Chunk-parade or work, since you did such a nice job with your comprehensive report - and other than foam tires mine isn't much different than yours.
I currently don't have any photos of my Chunk in action on the track, and my daughter has borrowed my camera, but as soon as I get some taken I will post them.

I don't know if you have considered obtaining the extended chassis for your LRP Shark, but I can not recommend it highly enough.
It will give it the same approximate wheelbase as your Chunk = much better handling. Top Smilie

I think the the Tekin RS Pro controler is also a good speed controler. Some people in the UK drive this combination.
Let us know how the combination works.

@Chunk
Thanks Very Happy
Yes please, post a picture of your chunk, if you have the camera again Very Happy

By the way: where do you live in the USA?

Yes - the Tekin RS is a good ESC, gives the car a little more brakes from what I understand. I will be testing it out next weekend, so I will keep you updated to how it works.

Yes - I will get up some photos of my chunk when I can.
But I am more concerned that you try and obtain the SC-extended chassis for your Shark - just so you can see how great it works, and how much better it makes the car. If you have any troubles obtaining the parts just let me know, as they are easier to obtain here in the USA (since they are produced by Duratrax).

Depending on the time of year, I live in several different places in the US. Currently up north for the winter, so I will be doing a lot of indoor racing on carpet.
