Mine was like that too. I think they toe it out a bit for quicker steering response as these are not high speed cars. You can buy...

Are ozziesolutions a small local business? At what point is a business considered large or non-local enough to be taken advatage of? Who...

That would be an observable accident. In the scenario of a online advert, I can only assume the seller took due care to confirm the values...

Maybe sellers should take more care, especially during the current climate.

The stock WLToys one uses a 5 wire servo (many of the 3in1 ESCs do this). The standard for servos is 3 wire. The summary is that if you are...

124019 has greater potential. The car linked here has very small batteries and no space for anything bigger. It also has a relatively small...

Agreed. It would be great if WLToys did kit or rolling chassis for people to BYO electrics.

09/09/2021 - 19:50
Agreed, although personally I have a stack of batteries so paying any amount for more is a waste of money. Bundled batteries are often...

Wltoys 124019 1/12 RC Car US$103.99 (~A$142.22) CN stock Delivered @ Banggood
Lowest price in 182 days (according to Banggood). This model is a good alternative to the 144001 if you plan on doing any upgrades or...

Could you please elaborate. When I look at the JLB I see a chassis that is the same general design as the 144001 with a 3S brushless kit...

I put 12427 wheels on this 144001 and the resulting vehicle was better than the 12427. Faster, better ground clearance, independant...

These claims are rarely accurate, I would say its closer to 45-50km/h on concrete.

I've used one of Aldi's brushless drills and the performance was really poor. For screwing somthing in it was ok, beacuse it could get some...

This Marin cost $2492 more than the Aldi bike and everything is better.
09/08/2021 - 15:15
Short answer; yes, mount the 144001 servo and connect the 2 motor wires from the 144001 ESC to the C14 motor That said, I'm not 100% on the...

No personal experience. AFAIK its just the longer version of 144001. The extra length would help high speed stability as 144001 can get...

Not sure updated is upgraded. Controller looks inferior with no trim controls? Rear suspension looks like its been massively dropped to...

I mostly agree, but would add the condition; 12427 is quite a lot slower than 144001 so the potential for damage is much higher on the...
