A Jato 3.3 can easily outrun a big block Revo, it's all about traction and keeping the front end down. Sticky tires and throttle control. A little weight on the front end doesn't hurt. You have to...
Yes the 7950 will be great for steering and the 7940 should work fine for throttle.
You could use a 2s LiPo receiver pack with a BEC (voltage regulator), but I would recommend a 2s LiFe receiver...
Amps X volts= watts.
At 25 volts you only need 500 watts to get to 20 amps.
What are you wanting out of the gear swap, low end power, more top end speed?
14/42 for low end.
16/38 for more speed.
These engines don't have floating wristpins. If the rod is moving and the piston isn't, either the piston or wristpin is broken. Which would explain the clicking.
Nitro.... Nitro.... Nitro....
There's nothing like a real engine.
NO, whatever altitude your at the temperature of a 3.3 should be kept between 220f- 270f.
That's pretty cool. The slash transmission is actually quite a bit stronger than the jato's, so be careful not to strip the gears.
You need a new glow plug, they should glow bright red.
Set your steering servo endpoints and center the servo.
I made one out of a piece of steel.
It sounds like you have one of the differentials in backwards.
The zip ties don't need to be that tight. If they're too tight, it will cut into the coupler. It sounds like your pipe isn't straight with the header putting undo stress on the coupler.
You definitely can't tighten the screws too much, it will keep it from spinning freely. As you have already found out.
Patience is a virtue, Grasshopper.
Since the electrical system isn't connected to the engine, it might be vibrations from the engine. It's possible you got a bad receiver.
Double you're power= triple you're cost.
It sounds like you have a pretty good handle on what it needs as it's needing it. That is what's most important. Don't worry so much about what the actual turns out are, they're just a baseline to...
No, of course not. But it is responsible for most of your other problems.
I think some of you are a little confused on the reverse thing. The Jato doesn't have a reverse gear. Marcusw has reverse because he locked the transmission in 2nd gear bypassing the one way bearing...
It seems we have the same taste in chargers.
I usually charge at the field or track, powering the chargers with a generator. When I charge at home I'm outside so I take my charger out with me and...
I think it might be your one way bearing, take it off and spray it real good with some wd-40.
I run the Traxxas heavy duty plug in my 3.3's.
He's talking about the slipper clutch behind the spur gear on the transmission. You adjust it with the nut in the center of the spur gear.
My rear shock's fully extended measure 3 1/2" from bolt to bolt. I don't remember what springs are on it, but it sits level in the back with no preload.
