    Changed out some of the rubber boots that were worn out today and finished the new body. It's in the gallery thread.

    Adjusted Integy twin brake kit with ballpoint pen springs, all I need to do to the trans in this rebuild anymore is to change the screws to titanium ones

    Just ordered some traxxas 17mm hubs to go with the black chrome e-revo wheels I just bought. Installed my new 2.4 ghz radio with newer optidrive.

    Started working on my Caster / Camber board. It'll give me one more thing to wrench on my revo. Made some plexiglass guides for the wheels. The ruler on the bench is just there, it isn't going to be part of the board. I have another sheet of plexiglass for that.


    Still have to make some larger holes so I can adjust the pillowballs without removing them.

    Put together a list of parts that I want or should I say need so that when I go to my local hobbie shop I won't be stumbling for part #s.

    I also helped my buddy put an ad on castanet to sell his HPI Savage X 4.6.

    This was yesterday but I put inthe new front diff as well as some blue anodized shock ends on the rear and two new rear push rods.Also 4 new dust caps in the rear. Installed the new 2.4 ghz traxxas radio only to find out that the optidrive and reverse servo went the way of the do do bird. Removed optidrive and ordered a 2056 water proof micro servo from a summit, head pipe and resonater, fuel tank rebuild kit and robber the two water proof 2056 and 2057 servos from my jato and switched to one steering servo. Even with just one it turns so much better than the dual servos that were always humming and makin little noises. Also I decided that no more money is going into this pit lol Just gonna run it now. Happy New Year to all!

    Hey man. I also installed the new radio. I had to buy the newer optidrive (red SET letter) for it to work. Just thought I would let you know if you wanted to run the opti.

    i installed the traxxas cvd's.... then went out bashing and broke my ring gear in the rear diff on only my second jump of the day, and while removing the rear bulkhead i broke it to. Lol I landed a little to hard under throttle i guess. since i have the rear end apart im ordering a spool for the rear..... any opinions or pros-cons on running a spool in the rear.

    Its an HPI body that my wife picked up as a Christmas present from Hobby Town. It's a 2002 Dodge Ram body, part number 7178. Here's a couple more pics.




    This is a Savage / TMAXX body. Don't know if it will fit a 3.3, but it fits my 2.5.

    Today I took it out and beat it like a bad dog.


    As can be seen, Krylon paint don't stick well, lol. Guess that means I have to repaint it.

    beat it like a bad dog you did....... that a boy. Lol that thing looks awesome.... i may try and find one at hobby town and see if it will fit over my 3.3. one more question trail, how are your pins secured to the body. ive seen that a time or two but was unsure how you guys mounted them like that. Im sick of losing pins everyday and dont wanna ghetto rig something either. thats a clean good looking way to do it.

    FINALLY got my 3.3 dialed in with a 14/40 and a short wheelbase 5310 chassis, let's just say that my wheelie bar got a workout today.

    I also found a 4x4 Stampede today (#6708) on craig's-list That some kid fried the ESC buy running a 5000 lipo and a 21 pinion/54 spur without setting the low voltage detection on the ESC and no cooling fan. On the bright side I got $200 worth of batteries, an $80 charger and a $100 controller with a slightly messed up and barely driven truck for $100. I think it will be around $150-200 to fix it all up, so long as the motor didn't get fried too.


    I love my Traxxas (Electric or Nitro)

    i have the same thing on my truck it was like 5 bucks at my local hobby shop, it's like a rubber thing you threat your clips to it. but i made 3 holes with my body reaver and threaded everything from underneath so you can't see the blue rubber band thing that holds the clips.

    Pulled that sloppy throttle linkage off my new 3.3 and made this outta an old heatsink I had kicking around.











    Haven`t drilled out the actual linkage hole yet, but its tight, smooth AND fully opens the slide barrel.

    Like was said, I got the rubber thing at the LHS. It was only a couple of bucks. Drill one hole in the body, and push the center in. It's molded to go through the hole you drill and stay in place.

    Just got back from bashing at the skate park no broken parts but a stripped spur gear from a bad set up (my bad) luckily I have a spare so I think since I have to tear it apart I'm gonna throw the 2.5 in and head back to the park.

    Turns out it was a broken motor mount that ate my spur gear for lunch and not my set up. Oh well off to my LHS for more parts. She ain't no shelf queen that's foh sho.

    Don't run the spool on high traction. Others have been known to twist the output shafts of it or twist/break the axle shafts.

    i run mostly grass and dirt, with an occasional speed run up and down the street. i have upgraded the axle shafts to cvd's. any idea where we think my next weakest link would be now. im hoping its not my rear diff as i just broke it on my second jump with cvd's installed under heavy accelleration to get wheels to hit instead of landing on roof.

    Just a tie rod, but at least he gave me beer to compensate!

    Nope, broke the metal on the wheel side where the threads meet the shaft, second time this has happened to me. Yes, stock.
