    And sure enough I didn't .... Will try with my sl2sh soon once it's back and running. And WOW I like the rustler alot. It has so much power it starts to wheelie and handles amazingly better that my sl4sh

    Got my truck repaired... But then this happens
    Doing donuts on the road and my shaking problems still there... BOOM!! All I see is a liquid all over the road and I take of the body and shock oil everywhere but at least my mmp didn't get any on it... LOL so then I think it's my rear shock empty the oil find out its not the one turns out it was the front one. Dunno how it exploded. Honestly it sounded like fireworks LOL and I was sposed to race my dads rustler because now I have a shock but before my chassis was on the ground so I couldn't get a good start... My dad went back to work so I couldnt race him till tommorow... Looks like maybe Tuesday now if I fill my shocks up tommorow... I emptied them all cause the oil was really black.. Never changed in the rears and changed 4 months ago in fronts... And I've had my slash for 1.3 years. I have 50w Losi oil and 15wt TE oil. Which one should I use for now and what oil should I buy? I don't have my manual so idk what wt of oil.thanks

    And I WILL get pictures tommorow of what happened over 2 weeks

    Sounds like someone needs to tear into their transmission.. It is pretty easy to spot a failure.

    The slipper shaft is bad...
    I'm just gonna buy a new transmission soon..
    And a 3s lipo because they didn't have any when I bought mine this week. Plus they only had 25c as there highest 2s.. So I took it
    Plan on a venom 11.1v 50c 5000 mah which can give me 250a. LOL I don't think I'm gonna ever use my 2s I bought in my 2wd cause it only gives 100a

    Sounds like you've had a mission with the slash mate. Hope you get it sorted, I'm too much of a newb to offer any help except what you've most likly already done. Take out all bearings soak in wd40 inc diff bearings. Check for missing teeth on all gears and diffs, are the wheels aligned. Has any of your plastics work allowing any play in the drive line.

    Sorry I can't be more helpful you'll figure it out tho,

    Nice work rancher ide loved to have grown up on a farm that would be amazing, more so being in love with engines and things that go fast.

    here is the SURPRISE

    Before:





    After:





    i painted the wheels black. it looks alot better.

    as you can see my paint has chiped of my green body alot. just the green though but i think thats because i rushed that colour

    Okay,
    So bad news and good news...

    Went to my LHS bought some parts but had to order some to get my 2wd running
    And I bought: 2 trx ball bearings( all they had) a 86t 48p spur and Teflon washers for ball bearings..
    Also bought rr 13t pinion but that was for my 4x4..

    ORDERED: traxxas planetary gear diff, output shaft.

    GOOD news: I emailed my LHS like ten minutes ago. I asked them if they could order me spc lipo battery's because I was worryed about the venoms connectors on there batts. I asked if they couldn't could they at least put a trx connector on it

    Shocks because my rear shafts don't move because their to bent.

    2s lipo because my current lipo doesn't deliver the amps.
