    just remembered i still had one and am now ordering a new set of rpm a arms for it. was considering buying a mini grave digger, just to see how 2wd on this style of car works out.

    anybody know how...

    i would like to know how the handling is going to be, and whether it's really just a simple case of "removing the front drive shaft".

    although i've never tried with the e revo style setup, when my...

    i have both motors - i didn't notice anything different with either in terms of performance.
  4. i don't think there's enough of a performance...

    i don't think there's enough of a performance difference to quantify as viable "differences". i don't know how the stock mount is made (i think it's casted), but i recall breaking a stock 380 mount...

    although it might sound misleading by saying "lipo's aren't dangerous" - all batteries can be dangerous if treated improperly. the consequences of mistreating a lipo, though, are greater than most...

    ... and you've convinced me to invest in either a vapor or vapor pro :)

    i'd personally like to know how hpi made what is essentially a castle esc "waterproof" to the point they're willing to state...

    from experience, a 2wd vehicle is totally different to a 4wd vehicle - so much so, that simply disabling the front drive shafts on a 4wd car won't make it feel (or act) like a 2wd car. because you've...

    imagine an adjustable length chassis :)

    ... maybe if traxxas made an extended rear bulkhead, rather than the longer wheelbase rear a arms. since the centre shafts use a similar sliding section to...

    why would it stress the drive line? and is it worth using summit shafts on the merv? is there a difference?

    it just adds extra complexity that most people could do without in such a small car. although i suppose the ability to adjust brake bias is a nice plus point (if it had separate front and rear...

    fill the centre diff with thicker oil - mine has 50k oil in it (or 100k? i'm never too sure) or remove it entirely - mine still wheelies, but doesn't send all the power to the front like that.

    if you're getting some grit or stuff jammed in the gears (or hair... oh man, hair can mess up bearings something bad...) it might jam the bearing and just cause it to heat up when it's supposed to be...

    how is this possible? the merv and summit a arms are the same part number. are you sure you didn't put the upper a arm on upside down?

    i wouldn't personally advise it, but if you are going to press ahead, try using a more powerful esc. small ones can simply fry just trying to push about the extra weight.

    my rpm arms have never come off. they are scuffed, scarred and generally battered, and i could carry on using them until the car breaks in half (which would be the third time for me :) )

    best upgrades are usually the smallest, seemingly insignificant things. steel hollow balls are amazing. it's a shame they don't come stock on the traxxas aluminium rods - (or at least they didn't on...

    actually, when did traxxas start doing limited lifetime warranties for electronics? has this always been the case or is it something recent?

    I snapped a pillow ball in my front left lower a arm - i have a new set on order, but to replace just the single arm i had to order an entire new front set, which, if the same were to happen on the...

    it fits similar to the slash body, actually - the body sticks out too far from the sides, so instead of getting a monster *mustang* truck you...
