  gopro HD hero
Posted by: robb41488 - 11-01-2012, 05:34 PM - Forum: General Discussion - Replies (6)

this is my discussion on the HD hero. I personally own a HD Hero 1 camera. I use the camera often to make videos of my rc cars. I love the camera and think the world of it. I've used it for hockey, dash cam, and rc videos. Later in this post i will post my thoughts.

This is a video made by gopro to promote there new HERO 3 Black edition. I personally like there videos but its ashame they make them better then they truly are. I have never seen a video look as good as the ones they post no matter how well a person can edit.





This is a video i found comparing the older Hero 2 to the hero 3. I think this is an amazingly honest test. You can clearly see how much they've improved on the camera.





as you can tell im really excited about the Hero 3 and can't wait to get one.

and heres a few crappy videos from my Hero 1.

what are your preference on c-rates. back when i was racing 1/8 off road i really noticed the difference between....25c and 45c. i have only run battery's with a 25c rating in my drift chassis, would most people notice and difference with something higher seeing as traction is low in drifting?

Chassis introduction: This was one of the first modern front motor drift chassis to arrive on the market, previously the only contender was the Tamiya TA-03F. The FS-01D was MST's 2nd attempt at a chassis and it is extremely successful! Straight out of the box it was a fierce competitor without much tuning. This setup is for the battery in lateral position, longitudinal position requires some changes. This was due to running on larger tracks that require slightly more speed.

Hey everyone! My name is Dustin and Im fairly new to the RC drift scene, been into it for a few months now. It all started at Formula D in vegas when I met Vaughn Gitten JR and Justin Pawlak at the HPI RC tent lol. I was pretty much forced into buying a car after they signed their cars and showed me how to drift. Now that the snow has fallen i've parked my drift car and started concentrating more on RC drifting. It's been a blast so far and im really liking it. Also the people i've met in the past few weeks at some of the RC drift meets are pretty damn cool XD

Here's some pics of my cars :D

Alex Racing Design has released a revised version of high performance front midship motor drift chassis. Alex Racing Design has been popular in Japan for a few years now by developing both RC and automotive products. Their latest release the CER-D11 and CER-D11TX Plus Toyo Version; this is the CER-D11 with the High Traction chassis upgrade chassis. The new Plus Toyo version incorporates the High Traction chassis right into the CER-D11 chassis kit.

The new ARD High Traction kit is designed for the CER-D11 and CER-D11TX chassis. Designed with the experience and input of team driver Toyomichi Nakabayashi, the new chassis design has been optimized for high traction performance. The CER-D11 has been specially designed with extreme drifting in mind. This chassis was designed based upon input and opinion from the best in the Japanese RC community, so this chassis is fully loaded and combat ready! The chassis is made from the highest grade carbon materials available such that it will maintain its structural integrity and precision. The chassis includes many of the essential hop-ups wanted by drift enthusiasts, so there is little to no need in upgrading. For example, the kit includes both a front one way tube and center one way; often not included with high-end drift kits.

Eagle Racing R31 GRT Front Motor Conversion Kit Full Posting


Eagle R31 Front Mount Motor Conversion DM (1)Eagle Racing has done it again! They have just released a new R31 front mount chassis converts existing R31 chassis to a front motor chassis. The new trend in RC Drift chassis manufacturers seem to be a front mounted motor. Most manufacturers have already implemented this into their drift chassis line-ups. Eagle has now followed suit with this new R31 front motor conversion kit. The new R31 GRT conversion kit will be compatible with the Street Jam OTA-R31 or the TEH-R31 chassis. The new R31 GRT chassis conversion will add better styling and rigidity to the existing chassis. Eagle continues to expand their ever growing GRT line-up, pretty soon there will be a GRT equivalent for every chassis.

The new GRT front motor mount position is the new trend in drifting performance. This would be especially good upgrade for any TEH-R31 owner. The new R31 GRT front motor mount chassis utilizes a new cut-outs from the original R31 GRT chassis. All of these parts will be available separately so no need to upgrade the entire package if you already have compatible Eagle Racing parts.

Full Posting of 3Racing Sakura D3 CS Sport

The 3 Racing Sakura D3 CS Drift front motor drift chassis has been officially announced. Look for it to be released at the end of August 2012. Breadcrumbs have already begun to make an appearance on the official 3 Racing store. This marks the 3rd full front motor RC drift chassis to hit the market and is expected to be the cheapest of the bunch. The 3 Racing Sakura series chassis are popular among budget minded enthusiasts. The chassis will come with 45 degree steering angle out of the box, and with the option parts will be capable of 53 degrees. It appears to have the integration of the Sakura FF and the Sakura XI, these pictures are of the official version. The chassis will retail for approximately $128.57USD to $135.06USD.

3Racing will have approximately 67 spare and option parts available for this chassis. To keep it stock or to fully “bling” it out with Pink Anodized Aluminum, the choice is yours. This looks to be a very promising chassis, especially at the very economical price range. The current Driftmission.com pole shows that this is the most anticipated upcoming chassis, please vote and let us know what you think!

It arrived with 1.79CS modified but is now increased to 2.29. This chassis has been fitted with the R31 suspension system and is quite the countersteer contender. The only thing missing on this chassis is steering angle, once that issue is sorted out, this car will be complete ;)
