    I have a 3S LiPo from the online dealers, and the power cables stick out to the side (you know the ones, those huge 8 gauge wires that are overkill for the Slash). I just cut a notch in the side of...

    It figures. The Badlands are on back order everywhere, and so are the Slingshots. I am kind of leaning towards the Slingshots now because I really only want these tires for snow, but we visit the...

    The electric screwdriver is going to be my next tool purchase. They have them where I work and are awesome for quickly removing screws. If you're gentle you can use them to tighten screws, but I...

    LOL!!!!
    I wasn't online yesterday, or I would have answered your question. The Revo pin is Traxxas part # 5145.

    There is only a single spur and pinion gear on the Slash, so you just need one. The stock spur gear is 54 teeth, so you would only need one 9 tooth pinion.

    It may have been a typo on your part,...

    t-bone,

    Thanks for the confirmation. When I first got my Slash the first time I took it out I had popped the bottom ball links off the shocks and smashed the bolts that hold the bottom of the...

    So the stock shock guards bolted right on with no problems or mods needed? I broke an A-arm a week or two ago and went with the stock Traxxas arms because I heard the shock guards didn't fit...

    I also used the Revo pins when I put my MIPs on, but I haven't had much chance to run them. Yes, they work like the stock Traxxas pin in the stock Traxxas axles. With one exception. On the stock...

    Tg905,

    Did you run the chevron style tires in the snow on your Savage? And did you run the Badlands knock-offs in the snow? Just wondering, as I couldn't tell for sure from your post if you had,...
  11. winter tire (or tyre for you UK folks) suggestions?

    Last weekend we had that really wet snow in my area, and my kids and I tried out their Stampede 4x4s and my Slash 4x4. As I expected, the stock Slash tires were about as useful as you-know-whats on...

    I agree, lipo solves everything. From smoking ESCs to wide hips. (pardon the sarcasm)

    For your original question, NiMH batteries don't have the same memory problems as old NiCds, so you can just...

    If you are running in snow, for the most part the snow won't melt as long as you're outside (and it is below freezing). I would suggest just blowing the snow off with the compressor, instead of...

    Just kidding, but seriously, my kids each have a Stampede 4x4, and I have a Slash 4x4. They all have the stock Traxxas 2.4 radio, and I can't say it works any worse than my...

    That's what I was thinking. I would think the splined ends would need to be made from aluminum and bonded to a graphite tube. I can't see splines machined into graphite holding up very well.

    I'm not sure where you'd use Liquid Wrench, since it is more of a penetrating oil to free rusted parts. If you have that many pieces of rusted metal stuck together on your truck you may be doing...

    If I'm looking at the correct batteries, they are the same except for one is 4000mAh and one is 6400mAh. The 6400 will run about 50% longer than the 4000. If the way you drive the truck means you...

    I'll third the bearing comments. A bad slipper bearing will definitely do what you describe.

    So you're saying the shafts themselves are different than the Ultra shafts, and the only difference isn't the TiNi coating? I'm only asking because that wasn't the impression I was given, but if the...

    That is exactly what I've found as well. I now try to only use Traxxas pinions for that very reason.

    I usually put some dry graphite on the A-arm pins and bearing carrier pins/screws when I have them off. I'll occasionally put some dry graphite on the sliding portions of the axles as well.
