Not new to RC but new to 1/5 and gasoline RC. I wanted to purchase a 5bss and build the kit however my domestic chief executive
frowned on the expense. I found the Dunerunner and got 4x4 and a much softer price of entry.
The box arrived and I have to admit I was impressed by the size and how stout the components look. Going though the kit I found many loose screws and items that needed to be adjusted. Overall I am impressed by the simple layout and ease of access to all the neccesary components.
- Kit is set up to service, from the cutouts to allow the radio box to be opened with no other disassembly to easy access to all of the carb and servo adjustments.
- It just looks great, the easy comparison is to the 5b but since I do not own one it looks great on the workbench.
- Screws seem a bit soft, had some trouble with a few that stripped the hex head.
- Use of "e" clips
I am currently breaking in the motor and have it running very rich (and slow).
Over the weekend I will tune the motor and get some speed out of it. The motor starts great and have only had a couple of issues that were just simple maintenance to fix.
Look forward to continuing this and getting some feedback.
