Telluride was 3 years after Jang's truck if I recall...I think Jang did it better though
Either way, yesterday's run resulting in some (superficial) damage:
I was so close to making that 2nd smaller hill, but after the 12th rollover, the wheel was rolling down after the truck and my front body mount exploded. In reality, I simply lost the rear wheel nut (no loc-tite) and my body mount in the front is 2 posts mounted to a piece of ~1mm ABS plastic sheet. Overall, for about 5 runs on the hill climbs before suffering a failure, the truck has taken a real beating so far.
My next mod will be a quick detach weighted plate for the front end. I think it will give me the extra front end stability needed to make that dang climb. I was only a foot short yesterday and got caught in some limbs, so my criteria for making any hill climb is to get to the top and be able to turn around and drive it back down.
For the electronics, I've decided on a Tekin Pro4 3000kv but I'm still deciding on a sensored ESC. I'm not sure between the MMP on 3S and the Mamba Monster X...
