@SB24: Got any pictures?
RPM carrier and aluminum caster block. About as bombproof as you're going to get.
Nonsense; I do it all the time and never once an issue.
FWIW the $4 heatsink from the Traxxas Blaster (it's a boat) can be made to work with the stock trans case. I have one on my Slash. It *may* limit your gear ratio choices by restricting the...
There aren't any uprated kingpins so far as I know. Plenty of HINGEpins; I run STRC.
Best thing to protect your kingpins are alu casters with RPM knuckles and arms.
I have two of these and am happy; they're also well regarded on other forums.
The hard packs are out...
Putting 1/8th scale wheels/tires on my slash is one of the best improvements I've made. Approximately 108% more fun.
Dirt and grass, the badlands will perform better for the most part. The Gladiator is a very adaptable tire and works well in a lot of places; they'll smoke the badlands on pavement, for example.
Check for bent hinge pins; an impact capable of bending a shock shaft may have done damage elsewhere as well.
The springs lift the car, and if anything air in your shocks would *reduce* the...
Direct experience shows that the Castle 1410 will eat the Velineon for lunch. More power, longer run times, and cooler temps.
Integy carriers are crap; I tossed a set yesterday. They use a plastic bushing to get the fit between the carrier and bearing right, and once that bushing is crushed it's slop city.
I think the...
Good luck! Tell us why you've decided to move to a Rusty?
You can pay someone to fix it but honestly it's SO simple that it's dumb money to send it off. Plus, then you learn...
FWIW a smaller spur is the wrong direction. Smaller pinion yes!
I think the RPM bumper for the Rusty isn't designed as well as most of their other stuff. First, it's only a got a two-hole mount, and second, the place where the width of the portion that mounts to...
+1; looks great on paper and has a lot of fans... Thanks!
Tekno M6 supposed to be strong....
Washer mod here; like it. Really good 'posi' effect. You will need to replace the washer every so often though.
They come with instructions.
Wow. Mine lasted less than a day.
You're still using 2WD Slash arms? Interesting....
I think you should shop for a higher output charger. Modern LiPOs can be charged at rates up to 5C depending on the manufacturer and that's freaking awesome. A battery that I can bash with for a...
See if either require you to cut away the chassis where the arm comes through to the outside. I did that for the 4x4 Slash upgrade and the chassis cracked right after. It's a poor place to have to...
