Convert the Kyosho DRX WRC Nitro Rally Car to Brushless
We all want to run these rally cars now. The whole "rally game" thing is really catching on. The scale appeal is very luring. But up
until now there was only one way to go if you wanted to go electric, the Tamya 1/10th platform. This is
kind of small and not very forgiving or even scale looking on large outdoor courses. Well, not any more! You can now run the much more robust and scale looking Kyosho DRX "D" series platform as a brushless conversion! Not only can this chassis
handle way more power, it is larger, more stable and scale looking than the 1/10th scale counterparts.
Here is what you are going to need to do.
- Get a
Kyosho DRX Readyset, there will be more bodiy styles in the future.
Purchase a great Brushless combo such as the
Mamba Max Pro 5700 system
Get a small range of pinion gears, the
DBX VE and DMT VE gears
are what is needed.
- Purchase these parts for the actual conversion that come from the DMT VE Monster truck:
Needed for the Servo to be on the correct side:
Kyosho DBX VE Servo Saver Set
Chassis Plate is exact fit:
Kyosho Main Chassis for DMT VE
Kyosho Motor Mount for DMT VE
Kyosho Battery Holder and Tray Set for DMT VE
The reason this is all
possible with just some bolt on parts is Kyosho decided to use the exact
same dimensions for the DMT Monster truck's cassis plate as the Kyosho
DRX WRC cars. This allow us to use the parts to make the conversion!
Kyosho DBX VE Radio Box Set
So rally car fans, go out there and go brushless 1/9 th scale 4wd and
have even more fun!
