Posts Tagged ‘bsd racing’ Here’s my no-BS review of the BSD / Redcat Racing cars’ optional upgrades. If you happen to get hold of a car or truck by BSD / Redcat Racng, congratulations, as you’ve just picked up one of the fastest machines around. In this video, I’m gonna show you which upgrades work, which ones are a waste of money, and some additional tips to make your car run better and last through bashing better.

The tips here apply to all the BSD Racing 1/8 Scale Cars, i.e. the Land Ripper, the BS809T, the BS807T, the BS802T, the BS808T, etc, the Redcat Backdraft 3.5, 8E, Aftershock 8E, 3.5, Earthquake 8E, 3.5.

Being an importer of these cars to my country, I have the privilege of thoroughly testing them in stock form, as well as with the full set of option parts. I must say, more expensive doesn’t necessarily better. Don’t just rush out and get every single upgrade out there – as in some cases, the stock settings may be better. If you deck them out correctly, they’ll serve you very well and even win you some races here and there.

Some of the upgrades I covered in this video include:

– Aluminium Shock Tower
– Revised A-Arm Design for BSD Land Ripper 2
– Axle Extenders
– Anodized Steering Knuckles
– Steering Hub / Chassis Screws
– Steel Spur Gear
– BSD / Redcat Front Chassis Modification
– Steering Servo Upgrade
– Lipo Battery Configuration
– Loose Receiver Box Problem
– Monster Truck Wheels
– Truggy conversion for BSD / Redcat Racing

I also referenced the two websites for getting better screws:

I hope you find this video useful. Do drop me a comment if it helped you out. If you have any questions on BSD or Redcat cars, feel free to ask me anything as well.

Peace out!

Http:// The FlySky FS-GR3C is the accompanying 2.4ghz receiver for FlySky’s popular GT2 and latest GT3B transmitter models. The antenna is protected 2 inches from the end with clear heat-shrink tubing. It also comes with a short antenna tube and a bind plug. I’ll be getting more receiver units like this, so that I may bind all my RC cars to my new GT3B controller. My latest cars from BSD Racing come with the GR3C receiver as standard so I wouldn’t need to replace those. FlySky also does OEM for HobbyKing, so those looking to get additional receivers after buying the new GT3B won’t have to look too far.

FlySky FS-GT3B Box Contents

The FlySky FS-GT3B’s packaging includes: the FS-GT3B transmitter, the FS-GR3C receiver, Bind plug, Antenna tube, Usage Manual CD-Rom. Racers will also be glad to know that the controller comes pre-loaded with a virtual racing software so that you can practice your driving and cornering skills before you head down to the track.

“How nice if I could have my own RC Store, even if it was just an E-bay Online Store” – I found myself saying last month.

First, I found, and thought they were pretty smart. After all, they started with a humble E-Bay store and went on to having their on E-commerce website, offering lower prices on big brands like Kyosho, HPI/Hot Bodies, Traxxas, Mugen Seki, Thunder Tiger, Tamiya and more..

But I could never imagine how great a scale an online store could go, till I came across, which is apparently by a handful of Asian college-age RC fanatics, currently specializing in Asian-made RC brands like Exceed RC, BSD Racing, . To start off with, they did a great job in social media marketing. They have a Youtube channel of professionally filmed and produced videos – topped by an introduction of the Traxxas Revo 3.3 which garnered 1,180,224 views, and seconded by another of Exceed RC’s Brushless Cars which took in a close 1,014,379 views, followed by a slew of other videos with viewership in the hundreds of thousand. On Facebook, they are also closing onto their target of 7,500 fans with their current count of 7,128. For the matter, the have also made themselves synonymous with the previously little-known Exceed RC of Taiwan which produces high-quality, high performing RC vehicles closely inspired by the big brands mentioned earlier.

While it may be easy to dismiss their online achievement as something intangible, I was shocked to find out that NitroRCx had been gaining great sales and publicity at the annual RCX Expo in Pomona, CA. Brilliant branding campaign in purchaser and prospective customer interviews, and capping it off with a thank-you message from an appreciative African-American 10-year-old Birthday-Giveaway winner. Check out this video here.

All these bastard-child RC cars have rather great offerings at rather low prices in comparison to the pedigrees that inspired them.

What we have here is the Exceed MadFire .28 1/8 Scale Nitro RC Buggy. Quite evidently, it’s a ripoff of the Hot Bodies D8, Mugen MBX, etc. I’m not complaining about it being copycat.. After all, who would mind a powerful 2.9hp 0.46cc engine, 16mm big bore aluminium buggy shocks, chrome wheels complete with 17mm hex hubs and even a metal gear high-torque servo as standard feature for the paltry price of US$250? Besides, these RC “Mongrels”, like the ones from BSD racing, are extra bash-friendly than their IFMAR-winning step-brothers.
