So if I pick up a set of alloy ones, they're not weaker than the steel?
I just don't want them snap first time out. I don't have the best of control.
I've finally snapped a stock steering rod & was wondering which were the strongest to buy?
I know the alloy ones are lighter, but I'm more concerned about strength.
What did you do with the diffs in the end?
If you locked both, how did it handle?
Thanks for the replies guys. I guess that makes sense now.
It's a little bit odd though that there's no mention of it in the user manual.
Can some one please explain this to me, I just don't get it.
Every battery pack I had in my petrol days has a servo type plug on it. Just like the one in this picture, but without the signal wire...
We've heard of a few failing now on here. Same fault, unit is just completely dead.
So far everyone that has bothered to post how they resolved it has simply returned it & had it replaced. (Me...
I think Traxxas now make one with an LCD screen, it's got something to do with an iPhone maybe? :wacko:
I had the exact same thoughts about a switch to disable it. In the end, I decided it was just making it too complicated for it's own good.
Next project, re-wire time on the crawler to make channel...
Isn't it gen 2 iphone upwards?
Any chance of more details
Ok. Cut a long story short, the switch works really well. I managed to get it so that it was nice & stiff in each of the 3 positions. So job well done. Unfortunately, it's still not for me.
I've had time to finally have a play. I've not messed with the temp sensor part. The way I see it, If you want temp & voltage, just buy the sensor. It's so cheap, why would you make your own?
While its in bits......
If you follow all 3 wires from the switch, where do they go to on the PCB? Straight into a chip?
I seem to remember someone trying it out on the newer radios & it didn't work. Course, I could be completely making that up.
We wait to see what jolynsbass comes up with on his test.
Just so you're clear, you can definitely do basic rear steer using a 3 channel or 4 channel Traxxas TX.
Channel 3 can easily be modified to have a center off position. This will allow the rear...
You realise that if a TQi channel 3 will work off of a pot, I'm gonna have a fit. I'll be back to the design stage again for my crawler steering! I'm currently using using channel 3, 4 & 5 together...
Quick post as I haven't got time for much. My stuff has finally arrived from the US. Get in.
Soon as the sensor was tested, voltage wire was dismantled. My guess was right about it being a resistor...
Dude, are sure about channel 4. Channel 3, yes, as we both know well now! :thumbup:
Channel 4 is only left or right, no center, same as channel 5. Is there a way of altering this you've been...
If it will bind again, next step, calibrate the ESC to the new receiver. Just a guess.
I thought I'd just break out the soldering iron. lol.
I suppose thread has become a little pointless now. Seems as though the sensors are more or less available now & for the cost, why would you...
I totally agree with that. Just run it & have fun. I've swapped out my swing arms for RPM, but only because I snapped one. If you're running on 4S, you'll be fine. It's the 6S guys that seem to need...
Glad you've got it sorted. That's good news. The red voltage wire will be different for me, I gave up on nitro many years ago, so I want batt voltage, not just from the receiver pack.
Thinking about it, does the 'add telemetry to your model' page on here not help?
lol. I had an email today from them telling me that. Mighty models have some in stock as well. I'm really tempted to go look for some. I'll give it until the end of the week.
As for mounting,...
I'll check it out & get back to you.
