Tire and wheel choice can cut allot of weight.
It's win win too because less rotating mass will help performance.
It's like a slap in the face considering the ski season was so poor this year.
I may even skip buying a season pass next season and just spend the money one one good trip to Utah or Canada.
Yep, you have to go by feel.
I have one large diameter shim on the ring gear side bearing and one of the thinnest small diameter shims behind the pinion.
That was on a brand new housing and...
Traxxas, SPC, *****, and ******* are all good brands.
Find out which is the most cost effective for your budget.
Really depends on the servo.
I have a JR8711 and the MMM's internal BEC powers it no problem. I don't run massive tires though.
Now if you have a servo that requires high voltage to get the...
From experience when those leads touch they can burn up like a fuse. In the blink of an eye.
I had a battery come with the wires in the wrong order in the balance plug. While swapping the wires...
Laggy Forum = Double post.
I hear you guys. My best advice would be to find a good spot where you can operate it safely.
Spectators usually don't approach me and ask to drive my Brushless E-Revo. Then again, I don't go to...
I think gorillamaxx sells their stuff at the RCMonster site.
You can find more about them there.
I don't see 87_GN's posts as a thread jack. It's important to note what type a drive train can already handle huge amounts of power (5ive t) while modifying a truck (E-Revo) so it can handle big...
lol yea there are some less desirable parts of LA that push that number down that's for sure.
Supply and demand. :((
Well yeah its all about location. I'm sure that the values of homes in Los Angeles, Sydney, and other densely populated areas are comparable.
Did a quick search and this was the cheapest one I...
That's true and might be the case. I have had pinions that have a sloppy fit on the motor shaft and they would work loose every pack. They wouldn't even mesh smoothly.
Hahaha Yeah he does do that. I actually first learned this in the military. I used to be a NAVY helicopter mech and we never assembled anything without applying adhesive first. It made assemblies...
Instead of an extra battery I would run an external BEC.
That will probably solve your power problems.
Forgot to mention that sometimes a pack needs to be balanced on its first charge because the cells were not matched up when they were assembled.
This may not be as much of an issue with higher...
That's insane. I never smoked but I remember when a carton was $20.
You mentioned that you used red locktite.
Put a few drops on the shaft and in the pinion. Then put the pinion on the motor's shaft.
Take the set screw out. Squeeze the locktite into...
It would be a good idea to balance charge them and check each cell's voltage after the first few runs.
This will tell you if you got a bad pack right away so you can exchange it before warranties...
Look for E-Maxx Housings they usually go for less.
Just swap out the housings.
Beware and be sure to read the auctions to see what model the diffs came out of. Allot of sellers are...
I'm pretty sure 87 GN meant to say "Shouldn't really hurt anything".
E-Maxx, E-Revo, and their brushless counterparts all have the same diffs.
Nitro models do not have the hd diffs.
We are just discussing what it takes to handle 8+ cells. :thumbup:
Unfortunately I don't think a Revo is up to the task until fast lane machine releases something like their T-Maxx hybrid 1/8...
If I were to splurge and get a 5ive T, I would do a bl conversion too. The ESC is the most expensive part of the conversion.
