    I just bought the front and rear for less than $30 from A main hobbies. Would've been content with the standard bearings but they were close enough in price to make the jump. As long as my engine...

    Dude, I think you totally jinxed me lol. I fired up my Picco .28 today and saw oil collecting on the outside under the front bearing after one tank. I'm also having some tuning issues which tells me...

    Its the Robinson Racing hardened gear set.

    So I was correct in assuming the clutchbell was different. It seems I was sold one with a 32 pitch as the tooth profile looks to be more like something...
  4. Well, I had a bit of time during my lunch break...

    Well, I had a bit of time during my lunch break and stopped by my LHS and it just so happened that they had a matched set spur and clutch bell in the 15/38 ratio. I'll have to see how they hold up....
  5. The dimensions of the battery I'm using is...

    The dimensions of the battery I'm using is roughly 107x17x35 mm. I originally bought if for a 1/18th scale car I built and it just so happened to fit. I'd go for a battery that is a little shorter as...
  6. Yes, you are correct on battery life...

    Yes, you are correct on battery life characteristics, but the LiPo battery is only 2/3's the weight. And if you want to run high voltage servos you have that option.

    How is your spur gear holding up? I'm having all kinds of issues with mine stripping out almost immediately. I'm now considering going to a hardened steel spur and clutch bell just to end the...

    thanks for doing this build up as I too have a special place in my heart for the MT class of racing. And while I am all about putting the truck on a diet, its worth mentioning that sacrificing weight...

    sounds like you're on top of things, glad to see you've figured it out. If you're wanting to go "above and beyond" you could do the ceramic bearing mod on the old crankcase. the lighter bearings not...

    Good deal, I'll definitely look into the clutch system. I will admit, my seat time with the revo platform is limited (I've owned it for 5yrs and still haven't put a whole gallon through it). So now...
  12. Many thanks, I totally forgot about Hot Racing....

    Many thanks, I totally forgot about Hot Racing. As far as gearing goes, it has the short ratio gear stack at the moment which I plan to pull out in the near future. I've looked at the RRP extra hard...

    Do yourself a favor and spend the money on a bottle of after run oil and leave the wd-40 for your bicycle chain. While the manufacturer says it has corrosion inhibiting properties, that doesn't mean...
  14. I've only seen that when the high shock loads...

    I've only seen that when the high shock loads were placed on the clutch. A good example of this would be when you land after a jump with the throttle pinned. The clutch is engaged and the stress is...

    First its important to verify which type of failure you are referring to. Mechanical failure will be as previously mentioned with side to side play. Sealing failure will come from the seals no longer...

    Having owned an original slayer, 3.3 revo, and now an E-slayer pro I can tell you the original slayer leaves a lot to be desired in terms of handling and ground clearance under the skid plates. The...

    In that case, yes, its very bad and things will go BOOM if you don't max out the credit card immediately, lol.
  18. Picco .28 and stripped spur gears Help!?

    Hello everyone, I seem to have come across a problem that I can't seem to figure out. I've recently put a P3-28 Picco engine in my revo and it's going through spur gears very quickly (within the...

    Its kinda irrelevant really, the plugs on the receiver are all bussed together so any additional load is going to be seen regardless of where its placed.

    I did the mod to my low gear only and you will still have "some" slop, but its not as bad. Just be aware that you will have a slightly harder time shifting out of low gear when their is a load on...

    My suggestion would've been to swap the new servo with the old one that controls the gear selection; that way you would still have the servo saver feature that's installed on the front diff locker...

    That mod should do well to keep the previously hollow portion of the shaft from collapsing. I'm going to assume you have your slipper clutch set fairly tight.

    the easy fix for that is to buy a set of extended hexes, I used the integy +3mm 17mm hexes. They make them in +6mm too. I don't know if that is enough to give you the clearance you wanted, but I...

    Nothing, its just a difference of terms to describe the same thing. Heavy spring means its able to support more load, stiff spring means its more resistant to compression which in turn means it can...

    Off topic, but I thought I'd share. I'm still unpacking boxes from my recent move and came across a little surprise. Years ago I bought the original Traxxas Slayer. It was completely original at...
