Helion has outfitted the Dominus 10SCv2 with a powerful brushless motor system that is capable of running on up to a 3S LiPo battery pack. The truck comes with an 8.4- volt 7-cell NiMH battery pack and jumping up to a 3S 11.1-volt LiPo pack will give this truck a noticeable boost of power. Grab yourself a MaxAmps Hard Case LiPo 5450 3-cell 11.1v battery pack with a Deans plug.
HOP-UP: Aluminum Rear Hub Carriers
PRICE: $24.99 (HLNA0181)
While upgrading the suspension arms to RPM’s super-tough units, it only makes sense to also beef-up the rear hub carriers. Helion offers upgrade parts for the Dominus SCv2 including these strong and greatlooking aluminum rear hub carriers which replace the stock plastic units. They are easy to install, provide a more precise fit for the bearings which the axles spin in and will help bullet-proof your truck.
HOP-UP: Suspension arms, front and rear
PRICE: $12.95 (70632), $11.95 (70872)
If you are not familiar with RPM, you should be. The crew at RPM designs and manufactures thousands of high-quality, injection molded aftermarket parts that are made from their own special blend of engineering grade nylons. Add a complete set of front and rear RPM suspension arms to help make your truck stand up to the harshest of conditions. To outfit the Dominus SC10v2, you will need two sets of the front arms because one set includes one upper and one lower arm. For the rear you will need just one set.
