    Use blue threadlock on your wheel nuts and it stop them from getting undone and stripping your hex and if its stripping when the nut is tight epoxy glue the hex into the wheel.....peace

    Don't exactly know what happened yet, but sounds like my slipper is just well, slipping. I took it apart, replaced bearing and slipper shaft, and tightened it right down. Even with the truck in 2wd it barely moves, I'm thinking busted diff?

    One of the friction pads on the slipper clutch broke in 2 and in the process, ruined 3 teeth on my spur yesterday.

    Had to get new friction pads and another 54t spur. Also decided to get the Revo pressure plate and hub. A good upgrade for sure since I run on 3s most of the time.

    Ouch. Sorry about the trencher. Nice to hear that you have a spare set ready to go. There is still a lot of snow here in Michigan and I'm dying to drive my p4de.

    Ground down a set of four 2.8" stock wheels (no tiers) while drifting my Tellup4de on cement.
    Traction? What traction? We don't need no stinking traction!

    Antenna tube came off and now the antenna is about 2 inches shorter then it was yesterday. Makes for some real short speed runs

    Will do man I have just put my 17t pinion back on because with the dirt hawgs being smaller and lighter the motor and esc ran low temperatures and just want to go a little faster.but it handles so well on road and grass even though the tread is smaller too and I am going with the bulldog body..........peace

    Can't wait spennie!

    I decided to take my p4de out today. One of the snow piles turned into a hard packed ice surface that made a perfect ramp into the street. The truck was getting some huge air but landed directly on the pavement in the 20 degree weather. After about 15 minutes of jumping the throttle was going in and out and the truck shut down. At first I thought the esc took a hit, but thankfully (cost) it turns out I killed the lipo battery. It may be time to pick up a 3s lipo in the spring. Hmmm...

    After my last run, my receiver decided it will never shut off again..... I shut off the esc but the receiver comes on and stays on if the battery is connected. I do have it where I can run it, there's just an annoying little process I have to do first.

    Both were slightly bent already. I did nothing fancy except hammering the throttle . Time to look out for something better...

    Not sure yet. The problem is that I still have a set of Trenchers on Desperados and need 12mm hexes for that. Maybe I will sell those and go for a 100% 17mm solution. In that case it would be Tekno, because Traxxas steel would be more expensive.

    Took my P4DE to the local bmx track and ran a couple 5000mah 2s's and was having so much fun I BROKE out the 3s 5000mah for a little more fun.

    Cleared the doubles a couple times and then my battery went flat, guess that's what I get for not bumping it up from the storage charge lol.

    P.S. the new 2.8 MAXX chevrons are awsome.

    luckily thats all that happened. $2.50 for the counter sunk screws, $5 for the diff housing, and $7 for the front bulkhead and I'm back on the road again. Hobby can be very cheap and very expensive at times.

    and no it was 80* and sunny out.
