    I've been lucky, haven't broken anything. But i drive pretty hard, lots of parts have worn out on me. Shock shafts and seals, bearing carriers, castors, driveshafts, steering assembly, kingpins,...

    My local track sometimes runs a stock 2wd slash class, which means Traxxas ESC and brushed motor and stock HCG chassis. I've read that some tracks do similar but require Traxxas tires too.

    Sounds like some of y'all have had some sorry-NiMH batteries. My experience with the Traxxas NiMH pack is quite good. I also have a Venom NiMH (not as good) and two excellent SMC LiPo packs. I always...

    if you like doing jumps, consider the proline chassis saver. Transmission to chassis tabs are a weak point.

    I tried 3M undercoating because i read internet reviews preferring 3M over flex seal. I used #08881 from my local auto parts - but that is not the right stuff. It is cracking a bit and flaking off...

    I got smc-racing instead of SPC because they have great prices and a category called "out-of-spec specials". I bought their regular stock, but the fact that they test each batch of product and reduce...

    redrandy gives good advice. I would add one thing - For $5, replace the bell crank steering bushings with bearings.

    I'm not exactly sure how it happened. Yes, the stock bearings with rubber seals.
    The slash does play in the mud sometimes but never deep puddles, and i hadn't noticed binding before. But here i was...
  10. Bearings clogged with clay - but are they ruined?

    Replacing bearings takes some time, so trying to balance time against cost. I put in new rear bearings, but i'm wondering if i should keep and reuse the old ones ($4 worth).

    So I ran on moist...

    Well, I was running 50wt and actually wanted a little more. With a three hole piston and 90wt (!!) it seems just a little more stiff, looks like more holes is proportional. I think 90wt / 3 hole...

    I like that better, next time i take the shock off I'll put the nut in front. I think I'll skip on shaving the tower and using two nuts, tho, just the screw and one locknut will be enough for me....

    problem: shock screws backing out: solved!

    I've been plagued by the shoulder screws backing out, the ones at the top of the rear shocks on my 2wd slash (Traxxas 3x12mm Shoulder Screws (Ultra Shocks) ). Tried making them tighter until i...

    Restatement::
    problem: landing a high jump (3 - 5 feet) the rear appears to freeze up short of bottoming out, slaps and bounces on the tires (not suspension).

    is it slipping?

    I can never tell how much the clutch slips in use. Alternate method i've seen is to turn it on, hold the rear wheels, and give throttle. Loosen until it slips, then tighten until it just lifts the...
  17. shock oil compression or hydraulic packing - to be avoided?

    As i understand, hydraulic packing is when the shock piston moves fast and the oil flow changes from linear to turbulent. This is also called high speed compression. The effect is the shock gets much...

    My truck doesn't exactly act like that, but from what i've read about tuning I suggest you try softening the front suspension and leave the back as it is. In your previous changes, did you adjust...
