    Rally Shock Part Questions

    Just a few questions bout the shock parts for the rally. Not sure if anyone knows yet but who knows?
    1. The piston valving, are the holes smaller than the revo/slash valving?
    2. The springs for the rally, are they stiffer than the revo springs?

    I was just looking at the manual and cannot remember. You can read the manual and look at the exploded views and compare.

    According to the parts lists and the manuals:

    Rally
    2 x 0.5mm holes + spacers
    2.89 green/white springs (front and rear)
    60wt silicon oil
    Front differential 50.000W silicon oil
    Rear differential 30.000 silicon oil

    E-Revo
    2 x 0.5mm holes
    1.89 green/red springs (front and rear)
    40wt silicon oil
    Front and rear differential 30.000W silicon oil

    Slash
    2 x 0.5mm holes
    1.89 green/red springs (front and rear)
    30wt silicon oil
    Front and rear differential 30.000W silicon oil

    Edit: hope I got it right, there's no info on the stock springs for the E-Revo/Slash on the manual... Also, the piston valving should be different on the Rally, but looks the same on the parts list...

    Well, atleast the springs are stiffer. Gonna get a set to throw on my revo, though i heard the valving was smaller aswell. Guess the stock shock pistions will stay in then. Also I know the slash springs are softer than the revo springs, can't give you numbers on it though.

    i'm waiting for the stiffer springs, too, but while i was waiting, i decided to try the double tan springs and 60wt oil, and i'm actually well pleased with the results.

    i was going to test 100wt, and 100wt mixed with others, but 100wt and the double green springa and it was very slow to bounce back.

    @ RC-Fan: the manuals for the rally are posted on the traxxas site. i have no reason to believe they won't b different to the slash stock gearing, considering the wheels are the same size.

    The specs for both list the Overall Drive Ratio:7.32:1 (stock, out-of-box)

    However the Slash transmission PDF list's the pinion to be a 31t (2431)
    and the Rally to have a 26t pinion (2426)

    Sure! Here you go:

    E-Revo
    Pinion 28t - #4728
    Spur 50t - 7046

    Slash
    Pinion 31t - #2431
    Spur 50t - #7046

    Rally
    Pinion 26t - #2426
    Spur 50t - #7046

    They all share the same spur but different pinion...

    I might be buying a year old slash, with plans to convert it to rally, how do I know if it has the updated bulkheads, what part # should be the replacement?

    I started a thread about that sometime ago...

    http://monster.traxxas.com/showthread.php?t=508932

    I don't remember now, but I think it's the same part #, you have to be lucky and get the new one...

    A few hobby stores are phasing out the original bulkheads. It's not a big part, to me the original is no different (and in my mind, breaks easier), so if you have the older style ones, change it if/when it breaks and don't fret.

    With the originals it as one less screw to worry about, and you didn't need to remove the left front upper a arm to take that apart...
