What's the C rating on your batts?
Yeah but I've got experience
If it brakes every time I drive it and I drive it once a year it's totally not a money pit
Chassis are cheap just chop two in half.
I'd like to have that cad file. Water jet table down the street will do it $1 a hole
Maybe this will help too
Everyone duck he said a bad word
Count on it. Three million of us couldn't be wrong.
So it's synonyms across many forums that the 1/16 platform is a money pit that suffers from many issues that have never been addressed by traxxas.
I was getting at the scale of the trees being 1/4 scale and the dragster being 1/8. Seems like there is some numbers there that don't match?
The only jump it sees is a small skateboard ramp landing on grass. It pops axles and control arms every one to three jumps servo saver arms left and right and shimmed pot metal ring gears once a month
Gear it slower. Loosen the slipper. Use only nickel metal batteries. Don't jump it. Apply the throttle and the brakes slowly.
The ring gear is made of pot metal not steel like the pinion gear and...

Agreed summit tires are great! Larger and lighter than others of closer size. But they are thin between the tread, pulled a summit strait from a box ran it ten minutes and the two right side tires...
Hs85mg are good I have a few with never an issue. For waterproofing loosen screws and spray in corrosion x
The esc specs are 52amp max or something. You could monitor it If you could build a resistance roller table for the truck and be able to draw a steady 20-40 amps on it youd'd be able to watch your...
I've seen so many post about the 1/16 platform rolling over so easy well I figured it out it's because the batteries are mounted above the centerline of the diffs and then the multi gear tranny...
1.5 years and still brakes one to two times every battery pack
They stock servos have been failing since day one. Just call traxxas and they'll send you a new one and if they don't hang up call again most of the tech support guys will send you one or two free...
All 1/16 traxxas parts are interchangeable with any other 1/16 traxxas cars and trucks. And next week when traxxas comes out with another one with a different body and different wheels it will all...
With 1/8 dragsters
You can buy a ken block and make it a grave digger if you wanted. It's all the same with different hats
Pot metal, I want some steel ones like the pinion is
Does anyone make a metal ring gear?
