My parents are clearing out their attic and I've now got three of my old RC cars at home I'm sure my 5yo son will love them...
(Cougar 2000, Bosscat and a 1/10 Tamiya F1 not pictured)
So, I'm figuring that it should all work but I guess I'll need new batteries as I expect that the SCRC 1700s will be dead after 20 years.
Given that I do want my son to be able to drive them and I don't think that he'll handle the 10/13 turn motors in them at the moment, I'm thinking something along these lines:
- new batteries (capacities seem to way higher!) - 3000mah NiMHs I'm reckoning to save needing new ESCs for LiPo, etc. These maybe?
- New charger - I can't seem to find my old one so I'm thinking of something like this or the double battery model
- slower motors - I'm thinking of bog standard Tamiya ones - 27t/35t IIRC geared fairly low to restrict top speed for now.
- Connectors - corally connectors on there at the moment but any suggestions for any alternatives? Or are they still used?
So, does that sound reasonable or should I be looking at something else?
