What did you do today with ur 4x4
I went to the LHS with my broken from the factory Stampede and they actually gave me a BRAND NEW ESC as a loaner until I get a new from Traxxas. Traxxas sent me a new motor (I have not gotten it yet) but today we found out it was the ESC. I was a VERY sad panda. Now I have to send in my old ESC and wait for Traxxas to process it and send me a new one back =( At least the LHS saved the day today!
Ran 2 packs of 2s through it! Does awesome on almost any terrain!
Slash VXL, Rally VXL, and Stampede 4x4 VXL.
WOOT! Just got back from Poenisch Park and had a BLAST! I drove it all around the streets on the way there. I ran it up and down the curb. I ran it an open lot that was all nice short grass. I drove it across the street and all over the little small park. I ran it all over the place on the paving, the grass, the sidewalk. Then... I went down the hill... up the hill, through the shells, up the hill, down the hill, around the storm drain, up the hill, down the hill, into the storm drain, took of the ESC fan oops... up the hill, into the shells, rinse and repeat!
Wow, what a blast! Would have been a lot more fun if it was not dark and I had someone with me... But super fun none the less! I am really going to enjoy this! Only ran one of 2s's out so... Gonna have a TON of fun tomorrow!
Looked up more parts to purchase.
Man i need more than 50 characters.
Tried mine for the first time with the 2400kv castle with 19/54 gearing. Holy crap! Even just on 2s it was awesome. Can't wait to try it with 3&4s!! I ran it earlier with 13/50 gearing and wow did the new gearing combo wake it up.
Mine is in peaces, checking all my bearings, etc as my 2400 will be here Mon. and want to make sure it can handle it. Found one questionable bearing and a slightly bent tie rod, boy trees are hard on those tie rods LOL
Endeavoring to persevere !
adjusted all the screws, or whatever they are called, on my newly installed MIP drive shafts...took it for a test drive with 3s
and they seem to be staying in place
I play til something breaks
drove around location with the Company Man and his nitro revo, then went for some speed runs on assphalt and striped my hex's and wheels, now Im making repairs
took out our stan 2 and ran two batteries thru her.Did some on road ,popping wheelies ,over curbs.Then took it too the empty lot behind the mall and did off road.Over hills thru some water and some jumping would be better if my daughters were with me but their mothers week.Ihope next week the weather is a good.But am going out later today to have a run/bashing
So I did my first run with 3s today with my mmp 2400 Geared 19/54. I have no idea how fast I was going but it is pretty insane. Wheelies anytime you want them. How are these guys running 4s?
I finally ran out of axle parts! Now my truck has it's MIP front axles
ordered protrac kit...
Took mine over to the parks again. I put up a little video of my son running my truck up and down that hill I was talking about before. Went to the big park and had a couple with a dog talking to us for a while. Their dog really liked to chase my truck. He got a good work out.
Nobody is born with experience.
Dyed the chassis with black dye so now it's a really dark midnight blue. Installed my big bore shocks. I even got my new soon to be night time body once it is fitted with led's. Too bad I can't run it until I get my motor and ESC back from Traxxas.
Installed my new ESC and did some speed runs on 3s 11/52 gearing in the road in front of my house. One was cut short by a mailbox post to my left front a-arm. Bent the screw holding the guard on. Straightened the screw temporarily until I get some more screws and was on my way. Also changed the shock oil in my big bores to 45 in front and 40 in rear.
I went up a really steep rock and as i was comming down it my pede flipped over on top of snowmaxx 3905's camera.
Stampede VXL, Stampede 4x4, Rustler VXL
Put in the Revo slipper and finished hacking my GT3B.
