Pirate Radio Control: Custom RC for a 4WD 1/10th Scale

This is the first test drive of my modified 1/10th scale RC car. It can reach a top speed of nearly 40mph with this gearing. It does 0-30mph in 2.2 seconds. More information.

The car is a Team Associated TC4 RTR. Modification I made include:
- Switched to a cheap but excellent sensored brushless motor.
- Added my own true AC (sine wave) controller and two-way 2.4GHz system.
- Added a 19.8V LiFePO4 battery pack.
