    When do you think it will hit the ground?

    Had to return original servo to Tower (wrong part, my fault); waiting for it to reach them via snailmail, then have to wait for same snailmail return. Prolly 2 weeks? Who knows...

    In the meantime I need to solder BEC/ESC to connector, and trim/paint body.

    Began wheels today. 2.8 Trencher onto 3.2 Revolver. Trimming the tire to size was very easy, literally less than 5 minutes to complete both beads. The wheel on the other hand... ...pretty much sums up the emotional rollercoaster. Dont let anyone fool you, wheel trimming is time consuming. However, the results aren't too bad for my very first mount. One down, three to go.

    Btw, where did you get your complete set of MIP 17mm adapters for $26.29? That's a really great deal man!

    Saw that question in the other thread, but was unsure if discussion of specific merchant+price was allowed. Other non-RC sites I belong to heavily frown upon this practice (certain AV sites and auto enthusiast sites come to mind). I originally found the price and B&M (with online presence) via Google.

    Phils is a great place for parts, and at great prices too. Many purchases in the past from them. They are semi-local to me.

    The only thing that I replaced was the original solid ball screw with the hollow ball pivot connectors. I took the hollow balls off of the original shocks that came with my roller. Traxxas exploded view lists two different PNs:

    2742x
    1942

    2742x looks like your best bet. There are decent pics on Amazon, in fact 1942 shows the ball scrwes that I took off of the sway links.

    Cool man! Many thanks for the link and how-to on the hollow connector.

    I really appreciate it!

    Finally finished 2.8 Trenchers/3.2 Revolvers. Of course, trimming the tires was easy. The pile of black bands in the pic are the sections of bead that were trimmed from the tires. The wheels however...

    What tool did you use to trim the sections of bead from the tire? Same tool used to trim the wheels?

    Scissors followed by Dremel for the wheels. X-acto for tires. Honestly, the wheels aren't that difficult. Just very time consuming/tedious.

    I must admit that I was slightly nervous prior to gluing the tires. However I found the process to be gratifying and relaxing. I am looking forward to gluing my other set as soon as I find the time.

    If anyone is on the fence regarding gluing your own vs purchasing pre-mounted, I highly recommend going DIY. Not only will you find more wheel/tire possibilities, you will gain useful RC experience and skill.

    I'm gonna sound like I live under a rock, but I have never seen an RC truck or car running (in person). I've seen planes and helis, but never anything with wheels. I guess by default, it will be the nicest one that I've ever seen. Now, if I can just get motivated and paint the body. Waiting for servo to arrive before I finalize the ESC/BEC placement.

    Removed chassis for mods. Still new at this, so I get pretty geeked out over these sort of skeletonized pics. I'm sure that many seasoned P4ders will probably find them somewhat mundane:
