Not the 1/16th scale Slash's GTRs! :wacko:
Saw these and thought of you:
Don't forget Michaelsjo's SCX10 Deadbolt:
Wait for El Sob to post. It's nick-named the "El Sob Special" for a reason! :thumbup:
You can always PM him as well...
Quality set of tools (hex drivers, sockets, screw drivers, long nose pliers, Vise grip, ...)
IR temp gun
Super Glue (CA adhesive)
The Traxxas 2400kV is the motor from the Funny Car (ET-2400).
It's a re-branded Castle motor.
Traxxas = Blue Can
I don't know. I've always taped mine.
The 2.8 Trenchers have a 4.87" (124mm) height.
McMaster-Carr has them with an inner diameter (ID) of 4.487"
I would guess they would work. Let us...
If in doubt, gear down and take temp readings every 3-5 minutes and adjust accordingly till you get it right.
For El Sob, I would say 2400kV with 3S.
2.8 Sand Paw: 5.52" diameter
SC Sling Shot: 4.52" diameter
I would run the same tires front and rear. Either one should work.
Should keep them the same size to save the slipper/diff from buring up.
2.2s wont fit anyways...
2.8 Primes are available at Tower (limited quantities left):
Kind of narrow, but the wheel base isn't too far off:
Length: 19.63" (499mm)
Width: 7.44" (189mm)
Height: 5.88" (226mm)
Wheel Base: 12.3" (312mm)
Proline has just released their new '66 Chevy C-10 body:
If you have the 3 caps on the back of the ESC, you have the 4-Pole unit.
Still don't know about the Primes, but Charger Man runs XO-1s and they fit:
The 2.8 Primes are larger then the 2.8 G-Locs.
2.8 Primes are 4.8" in diameter and 2.6" wide.
2.8 G-Locs are 3.8" in diameter and 2" wide.
I don't know if they will fit or not...
Did you read the manufacturer's website for that body? It tells you what you need to do this (like the picture):
Not sure if this would work with individual LEDs, but this has options to turn the lights on (no strobe) or set to different strobe patterns:
I just noticed that you're in Knoxville.
My dad and a couple of his brothers came to America in the 50s (from Japan) and went to college in Madison, TN. My uncle never left TN. After finishing...
I don't have any experiance with Spektrums, but I am old school and have always loved my Futabas. They are also well known for their range (something you may need if this is for your speed demon).
Looks like a stub axle, but not Traxxas. Do you know what brand your axles are?
Traxxas 6754 looks like this:
Two frogs and one dog.
For those that don't know, here's a video that shows the rubbing on the chassis and how to Dremmel it down at 6:00 into the clip:
