Totally normal my friend. Now get outside and get it dirty!
My son's 1/16 Digger and my 1/10th Son-UVA Digger.
His is fairly stock for now (bar wheelie bar). Got some lipos to use for...
That Monster Energy body looks unreal.
I agree it looks better. Lol. But function over form!!
Who gives a toss what others think about the body mate? If you liked it that way you should have kept it that way.
Nice truck by the way!
It was also a 38 degree C day (100F).
Gave it a good flogging today and the hottest it got was 74 degrees C (165F).
Bloody wheel nuts keep wiggling loose though.
There's always something!
Running 16/90 it is a wheelie machine... The power is quite violent.
Maybe it is time to order another pinion and spur combo.
Hey guys, long time no post.
Can someone please refresh my memory/ suggest which gearing combo would be best to run in my 1/10 Son-UVA Digger.
I'm running an Associated Sct brushless system on...
Cool. Post pics!
After 10 mins of pretty hard accelerating and stuffing around bashing yesterday the motor was 137 F and the esc was 100 F. The weekend before after about 25+ mins the motor was in the 160s ... Can't...
Gearing is currently 16/90. Running mostly on tar road and a bit of grass at the moment. Outside temps between 20-25 C. Just waiting on some new gear options to arrive to see if they make any...
I am using that Reedy motor and esc combo in my truck. It is probably my gearing, but I'm finding I'm having a few heat dramas.
So I took it out for a 10 min run today with the temp gun at close hand.
After that run with the 16/90 gearing the esc was 100 F and the motor was 137 F.
Should I try a 14T pinion?
Looking forward to it!
That's what I thought as well, but a majority of people reckon it's a good set up... I don't even know if my motor and esc are going to hold up and work properly after the weekend issue.
Just bought a 19/86 set up... Will see how that goes when it arrives!
What would be best for bashing around, mainly shorter distance drives (it lots of accelerating) on grass and tarred road?
I threw a Reedy brushless system from a TA SC10 in my Traxxas Monster Jam truck running 2s lipo.
90t spur and 16 pinion.
I was checking temps and they got to about 165 F.
So I pull my truck down to fix the annoying clicking noise thinking it's the diffs. Checked and shimmed them ... Noise is still there.
Can the centre transmission make a clicking noise for any...
Thanks for the reply.
No error lights on the rx...
I'll have a bit more of a play this afternoon.
So I go to run my Merv after it has been sitting for a few months.
Charge up the battery, plug it in, turn it on.
Esc lights up. Cooling fan kicks in. Servo works. Motor doesn't.
Got back into working on my Merv today after it has been sitting for a few months. There is a horrible grinding noise coming from what appears to be the centre gears/transmission. I...
Does it matter if the shim was put on the other side of the gear? I just pulled my truck down to do this and out it all together before seeing the picture above.
Bugger of a job pulling the diffs...
What should I do?
I am feeling the need to buy 'big brother' (ERBE... or a Flux, haven't decided fully) and can afford or justify buying it without selling anything else.
I have my SC and Pede...
