Once the bugs arw worked out
8 months straight of running? Time to get a vekta*Ownership update*
The first failure in eight months of running this. Steering servo just died during a run, figured a gear or motor went. Under further investigation, a capacitor (transistor or whatever you call it) came loose off the circuit board. First time I've ever seen this happen to a servo before. I was going to solder it back on but as these stock servos are garbage, I figured a good time to upgrade.
Went with an 845WP and Full Force mount. Looks like I'll have to Dremel the mount off the battery box to fit these.
The latest batch of RTR Vektas are pretty much bulletproof to an extent. Really nothing needs to be upgraded. Also depends on how you plan on driving it.I'm becoming interested in joining the cool kids club. The only issue is that after $1700 I can only tolerate so many necessary upgrades before I'm like wtf. Wondering what people think is a required upgrade from a stock vekta 5.
Unlike my Baja I don't plan on jumping it. I eventually want to drop a 40gt in it and upgrade steering and wheels but that's about it.Good for another eight months.
