    Gearing range?

    Has anyone figured out what the gearing range is with the different spurs? I'm more interested in the biggest gearing possible with the 45t spur. I'm trying to make mine even faster than what it...

    Those should fit fine as they are for a 1/10 scale buggy, not 1/8.

    Yeah, that's the idea but I want shorter than stock. I might just have to pick up another set of short rockers.

    Thanks for the response on it.

    I'm at 31/45 with my rally car, but my tires are smaller as well. This is with dual 3 cell in parallel.
    I'd think you'd be fine at 28/50 as long as you're running parallel.

    You should be fine in shorter runs. Just keep an eye on both the temps of the ESC and of the motor. If they are to hot to rest your fingers on, stop running. That's being on the side of caution...

    The on road cars use them now in cars that use the single cell lipo, such as World GT and pan cars. They do this so that the power pack was used for the motor and the receiver pack battery powered...

    Lift the truck off the ground and give it light throttle. My guess would be a bad bearing, either axle carrier or at the diff, not the transmission.
    Another check would be to spin both front tires...

    I haven't changed out the gearing yet but I did pick up a 31t pinion. That will be going in this weekend as well. I took a big crash and popped the rod end on a rear toe link. I was planning on...

    You really don't even need an alarm or a cut off. You will notice when it loses power very quickly. When you see a noticeable drop in power, stop running and charge. I have never used an alarm and...

    Those ones you linked to seem to be about as much as the Traxxas upgrade ones, which I bought. For the money you get your 4 links, the nylon rod end balls, and the adjustment wrench. Pretty hard to...

    IS HR the only one? That's a static part for the most part and will be really hard to screw up but if anyone can, based on my experience with them, HR will.

    Camber is one thing you have to play with based on how you drive. Camber should be set so that the tires wears evenly across the surface of it. So that really is a trial and error thing. I would...

    Shorter rocker amrs and sway bars?

    Does Traxxas or anyone else make a shorter rocker arm? I know they make at least one longer but I want to limit my suspension travel and I just can't seem to find them.

    The pillow balls look kind of like a lollipop, they are silver and go from the steering knuckle in the upper and lower arms.

    I did mine like Dad said but really didn't like that. One of the only real advantages of pillow ball set up is that you can set up your track width just using what's there, no extra parts needed. ...

    Thanks. What about arms? Are they really a problem being the shorter ones or is someone making some stronger ones. I can't find the Slash/Rally arms from RPM, only the merv ones.
