Hi Guys,

First post on this forum. I am very new to this wonderful hobby. Started with a Rustler Vxl and then recently bought my first Electric Buggy Vorza Flux ..

Very happy with the performance of Vorza...


Here is my first crash straight into a light post !!!


Lucky me ..no damage at all.

Loving this hobby !!!

Hate to burst your bubble but while that impact looks impressive wait until you've done landed a 6-8m jump on your roof then cartwheel 15 times full speed into a railroad sleeper somehow ending up on your wheels and kept on going, then we'll talk. (I'll get video evidence if needed, I do this almost every lap :)

@Scratch2k I am very new to this hobby ..and wanted to share my experience so far .. to feel part of this rc forum.

I believe we don't post here to compete .... ;) we are here to share our experiences ..as we develop into this hobby.

I am basically a heli guy, I hope one day I'll be able to drive as wonderful as you can now ..

I will love to see videos of your driving /bashing ...mainly to learn from your experience..

show us how its done !

ok, so it can handle 6s from stock speedy ?
Yes Stock ESC is basically re-badged Castle Creations Mamba Monster, called 'Blur' .. for HPI, which can handle 22.2 V 6s lipo .. without any heat issues .. max temps of 50 C so far.

I am running stock gear and motor (2200KV).

haha I wasn't having a go at you, sorry if it came across that way.

What I meant was that because you're new that crash is likely to be one of many many bigger and better ones and I'm looking forward to you recording them and sharing :)

I haven't got an video of me cartwheeling like a maniac, but I do have this:


and this (stick around until 0:44 for cartwheeling)

and me racing, thank Zeus the camera wasn't on me most of the time (purple car with white wheels which started in pole position):

I don't (technically) bash the ECO, it's for racing but given my lack of driving skills it gets a good bashing. That last video was me but the camera only caught me mostly driving OK, a rarity, I didn't bribe the editor at all.

The only injuries was Ben's ego and pride :p
The vorza just kept on going.
