Kershaw Design Heavy Duty Slipper Spring
I received it this morning, I will not install it on my ERBE. I will not comment any further on it until I get a response from Dan, I emailed him about the spring.
Here's a couple pics of the Kershaw spring versus the stock one.
I re installed the stock spring but with the two TRA5352X concave washers that are used for the 3.3 Revo's slipper clutch. I put on the washers like this ''()'' and then the spring and nut. So it's like this: ()///. I believe the spring serves more as a spacer for the nut and it is the concave washers that make it possible to adjust the slipper tension strong enough for the MMM's power.
Rear skid plate protector
I made a new rear skid plate protector much like the one I made long ago for my 3.3 Revo. It's just a piece of 1/16'' thick steel. It wraps around the rear portion of the skid plate and goes under the middle skid plate with a screw and nut for added strength. The other one I made earlier was out of a 3 mm thick aluminum chassis and was too thick. It grabbed when the rear end would bottom out flipping the rear end upwards and the truck often ended on its lid. This plate is much thinner and as I have experienced on my 3.3, the longer surface makes it slide instead of grabbing. I could've painted it black but this thing will wear to bare metal in a hurry so I just left it like it was.
On a side note, those mud flaps made of a hard rubber are the best ones I have ever used. They are way better than plastic or Lexan, strong enough to hold their shape but flexible enough to not break or crack. They are perfect.
5000 mah 4S split into 2S
I just did it without thinking too much about it, if you think too much about splitting lipos, then you start being scared and you don't do it :D . But I'm not a complete idiot so yes, I prepared for the worst, garage door opened with a metal bucket close by outside on the driveway, working table free of combustible stuff and fire extinguisher close at hand. So I have now four 2S1P packs waiting for balance tabs I ordered and heat shrink. I saved the two ***** stickers and will make a couple copies so I will have 4 stickers to put on the new 2S packs to make them look ''factory''. I will be the only one in the universe to have black *****s because I will use black heat shrink.
