    Ya, use the bell cranks or a Large truck servo saver even with titanium gears because even if the gears dont go, you could end up over-heating the servo motor and having servo toast. Good luck with the hand.

    Balmy 52* here in Chicago, almost 60* on the Lakeside, sunny with a blus sky and a little wind. Perfect weather, no snow, just a boat-load of leaves.

    I need a bigger broom. The idea is to sweep the water over the rise and off the side of the driveway, but the thing wouldnt push much water. Maybe a varation on the snow plow design.

    Next time my truck's together and its pouring rain ill try to get a vid.

    Broom prob is better, more flexible and it dosn't have to be bone dry, just so you can walk through without getting your soxs wet.

    But the ground curves so much and the concrete is so rough that i might well flip the truck over the squeegee. What I need is a big wind-shield wiper blade.

    yep it's in inches, if you want mm without searching it's
    01.8799 = 47.7494 mm can
    0.1575 = 4.0005mm mounting holes (M4).
    0.1969 = 5.00126mm pinion shaft. (5mm not 5.005mm).
    0.5787 = 14.6989mm this is the little lip on the can.
    1.2795 = 32.4993mm mounting space for fixings.
    Problems.The manual's good starting point. Simple

    see what happens when you get a bunch of good people together Mr jarhead, everyone's ready to help or give some advise! has anyone had issues with the strength of the spring in the emaxx bell crank system? or is it just me since im using the summit tires? I have seen the heavy duty spring for the revo, but i haven't seen one for the emaxx? I'm thinking ill make a one piece arm to replace the two piece with the spring, and go to some good High torgue servos with steal gears, has anyone else made mods for this problem?

    if any emaxxer is interested (and don't already know, and if you did already know why didn't you tell me???...j/k) you can replace the plastic bushings in the bell crank systems with traxxas part# 5114 Ball bearings, blue rubber sealed (5x8x2.5mm) (2)...lol just thought I'd throw that out there because of a question I saw in another thread!

    its all fixed! just waiting till my right hand is feeling a little better had the surgery on it friday the 18th, took it out Thursday night and caught some huge air and broke the rear shock tower lol you should have seen me replacing it with just my left hand working, but, waaaalaaa a new rpm shock tower is in place!

    thanks dnvrlrdge70, I think most of they guys that keep up with this thread are already running the dewalt set up , we just have made friends and we keep up with any and all mods we all do or any trouble we may encounter! all are welcome! are you a emaxxer too?

    Its good you got it fixed with the magic hand! My wife is about to have surgery on her shoulder and will be out of work for 6 wks at the least. Now we all know your still able to go out and get some big air! As long as the trigger finger isnt broke its all good!

    Thanks! The wife isnt looking forward to it but needs to be done. Its a little rainy here also. I took mine out yesterday and the dogs were so mad it wasnt funny! It was on the top most of the time. That was the first time I ran it that hard. I can say the brakes work really good!!
