    You can use Photobucket for videos as well as pictures.

    Just up load your video as you would your pics, save, tag etc. Copy the url image and paste to your post. It should the display the video from Photobucket.

    here are the videos. i had like 10 minutes more of footage but my ipod wouldnt email them to photobucket like that so i had to send them in little chunks

    as you can see i have no traction. the track was also covered in weeds i manged to pull 3/4 of them in about half an hour and just thought it was good enough

    this was taken way back in august and that day i broke my shock end rods. (page 5, post 210)










    hopefully these videos show up...

    Badish goodish day...

    Went to the LHS and I bought my rpm a-arms and rpm rear carriers and a venom 60c 5600mah battery.
    The battery puts out a continuous amp rate of 336a and a max burst of 672a!!
    Pics of it all tommorow

    Now on for the bad news...
    I used my new lipo.
    The pack is a sport pack and so it the balence port. Took it on the track.
    So powerful!
    Then.. No power
    Check it and a internal servo gear broke. Take it up to the counter and my mom comes along. She takes my wallet and I go back to the pits.
    Go to charge my new venom battery.
    Balence plug is broken. There is a little metal piece that goes in the lipo and I snapped in half.
    Took it up to the front..
    And that little piece was fun to get out
    Then he solders it back up and yeah

    Do not leave that plug plugged in when driving! You have been warned

    It gets worse..
    Buy the parts to fix my 2075 and it breaks when I try to get the gear on.

    Oh joy...

    Sounds more like a bad day then a good day! Yeah when I stripped my 32p spur I was mad! So I replace it in 3 mins and I go out side and strip the second one in about 5 seconds.

    I run on a clay indoor track and use Proline Suburbs green dot, taped and balanced, mounted on Split six beadlocks (2.2-3.0) with RCarbon works carbon fiber rings.

    I also use Jconcepts Barcodes on Jconcepts wheels..... the tread is just about identical and I have about the same results with both sets of tires.

    no i run on a clay track like you where in the video made a big difference with the truck also running swaybars that came after the tires then the lipo came in now im playing with gearing shocks will be next i just used the plastic spacers that came with the truck so far it seems to be working but the winter is coming on here and that means time to take the truck apart so i will let you know what i do when i get it done

    Exact problem I had! I ordered STRC hexes and split six rims with headlocks and trenchers. Very impressed with the setup.

    kdvanb You sure did remove the tread from those tires...and lipos will do that....did you run on pavement?

    Iceroad2 You are going to like the Trenchers on the Split six beadlock wheels. The steel rings are a bit on the heavy side so if you can spend a little more, you may wish to purchase STRC aluminum rings or Rcarbon works carbon fiber rings.

    I use both thee aluminum and carbon fiber rings and they work very well.

    Yes I do run on pavement and cement sometimes.
    I mostly run on dirt or gravel.
    My road is paved and after it rains that is the fastest place that drys.
    I also run in the " manure pit" which barely has any except for when I had 15 bull calves but that only covers 1/14 of the "pit"
    Sometimes I make a little track on there.
    The estimated area of it is like 400 square feet.

    Yeah I purchased two blue rings from there and I forgot I needed four lol. Major fail but yeah anyways I like the rings it comes with and I am not to worried about weight because I don't race I just bash so it's not a big deal.

    I'll second the choice for aluminum... I went aluminum last June and don't see a reason to go back to plastic... Plus it looks good.

    You will bend pins so easy with those rpm castor blocks it wont even be funny. Even the stock ones are better than those.

    Nice! I honestly am scared of screwing up while glueing tires so that's why I ordered mine premounted! On a second thought isn't it crazy how calm and soothing Jangs voice is?
