Equipped with a 25A brushless power system, this little 1/16 truck is both powerful and fast. Small and quiet enough to zap around the living room on a 2S LiPo pack, or adjust the suspension travel and take on tougher terrain at your local park or backyard. The TURNIGY Stadium truck is alot of fun with a plenty of performance features usually only available on larger trucks.

*&%!$ Replaced the ESC, ran great... once... until the motor shaft came loose! Now it slides back and forth through the motor so the gears don't mesh. All I did was run it on the driveway. Another $30 to replace the motor or just buy another car and keep this one for parts? Any ideas on how to retain the motor shaft?
In that case then.. any of the 35A ESC's should be fine, it might come down to whats in stock and of course there's no harm in getting a higher rated ESC, its probably safest to go with the ones with the highest star rating and reviews.
Make sure that the mesh is correct, without the correct mesh you will always have excessive wear on the gears "no matter what they are made of". Running a 3s pack will also increase wear and heat build up.
Back in November 2013 my son had one of these for his birthday and chewed out the gear after two battery packs. Make sure the mesh is good by packing up the longitudinal drive shaft support with shims or tape. You should also make sure that the clutch slips enough to save the gear. Adjust the clutch until it just slips when you hold the spur gear still and push the car forwards.
My son hasn't stripped a gear since we did this. I bought several plastic gears and a metal one from ebay but still haven't used them. Good luck.
as long as it has two hole for the slipper screws and have a 0,6mod pitch to match the pinion, it should fit
Received and tested today. It's for my Son's xmas present so didn't do much. Put in a 1300 3S which fitted in fine, and this little things flies and was heaps of fun. Had to pry it out of my hands to ensure it stayed good as new for xmas! Had a problem with the servo arm slipping which sucked, so initially had no steering. Needed to CA the arm on to fix it but good as gold now. Will eventually order a new servo to sort it but for now it's perfect. Can't wait to see the look on my sons face when it unwraps this!

This is crazy fast. I put a 3S 2200mah (30c) Turnigy lipo on it. The battery holder doesn't clip it in, but it still fits in the battery area. ESC heats up but is still not too hot to touch. The paper instructions state that it handles up to a 16V battery. Will be getting a 4s and testing out.
I have never done RC cars before so I am still getting used to the controls with breaking vs reverse and drive. Already confirmed that it takes a beating and keeps on running. I jumped it off a 3 foot dirt pile at full speed. It went off at a bad angle and rolled for a good 10-15 feet and landed on wheels and kept going - zero damage.
I am buying another as soon as they are back in stock!
I got this about a week ago and it arrive perfectly packed without damage. It's actually quite a nice little rig....I am impressed given the cost and the fact it's brushess right out of the box. I ended up using a 3s 1500mah here www.link Installation with the radio and ESC was a snap! With a 3s pack this thing is outrageously fast....a blip of the throttle and it just flips upside down-it's a screamer. The ESC has reverse and braking...it didn't get excessively warm....all in all, I am very happy with this little rocket. I would like to see some repalcement/hop up parts start to appear.

Este coche es una pasada. Tiene mucha potencia y es muy controlable. Yo lo he equipado con una bateria de 1550 Rhino que aunque no cabe perfectamente en el hueco, queda bin sujeta. El mando de HK para coches va perfecto. Se monta todo en 15 minutos y a correr. La bateria dura 15 minutos sin descargarla al mximo. Lo recomiendo totalmente. No admite baterias 3s ni de ms de 2000 mAh. Lleva conector XT60.

This was a great fun little truck to play with. I shoe-horned a 2200mAh 3S into it and had a blast, however I dont think the ESC is rated to go that high, so I would suggest an 1800 or smaller 2S for a lighter, faster truck that will last alot longer. Don't be mistaken by it's size, this is a fast truck when set up right!
