Yeah, I suppose that's true. I was just trying to "have it all" so to speak:
I like the durability of 17- or 23-mm sized hexes, rather than the MT-standard 14-mm.
I like the...
Roy and Misbehavin',
Thanks for your replies. Hmm. I'd prefer not to have to do any shimming. One of the many reasons I prefer my current RD 23-mm hexes to the Pro-Lines I was running before is...
Thanks for your reply. I have a follow-up question, if I may:
I'm not sure why I'd need to shim between the hex and the axle carrier. If the hex hub fits snuggly on the axle, it...
I've been running RD Racing's very well-made axle carriers, 8-mm axles, and 23-mm hexes. I noticed in your description of your Revo and setup system, that you use 17-mm hexes for doing the...
Read Pro-Line's page on wheel offset.
This may not directly answer your question, but...
AM stands for amplitude modulation. In AM transmitters, the amplitude (and thus instantaneous power) of electromagnetic carrier is modulated...
Can you explain where you cut the tires to make them fit? I'm thinking about doing the same thing with some Losi Zombie-Max tires.
Read the last post by Igotskills and carefully read Step 2 from my last post:
"Use the tool that came with the truck to unscrew the pivot-ball retainers (the black rings with the...
Right. I understood.
Take off the wheels, hexes, and pins. Disconnect the tie/steering rods.
You can simply unscrew the pivot balls from the outside, using the socket built into the pivot balls for camber adjustment.
This way, you don't damage the surface of the pivot balls.
Where DO you live, anyway? I'm not trying to stalk you, just curious about your region.
I'm using the Jump/Roto Start with an OS 18TM and a Savage OWB. It works very well. Just make sure you get the right Roto Start for the Savage, not the TRX 2.5. The backplate is the same, but the...
No, that was the Reader's Choice Award. I believe the RCCA editors gave the Truck of the Year award to the LST.
I've been using HSC-5997 as a steering servo and the HSC-5996 as a throttle/brake servo for perhaps 3 months now. The 97 has enough torque and enough speed, as far as I'm concerned. ...
Thanks for the photos. What's the point of adding the vinyl covers to the wheels? Is it to keep out mud, reduce aerodynamic drag, or give the truck the look you like?
Here are some updated photos of my Revo, van der Veken the Flying Dutchman (AKA Dutch):
I don't know if this is old news, but Slayden's Revo Performance Setup Guide, Part 2 is out. Click here.
I'm running one. It works fine with and without the wing. Check out page 8 of the Revo gallery thread.
The rockers don't actually control the overall stiffnes of your suspension; that's what the springs do. The rockers control the progressive resistance of the suspension; they don't simply make it...
American, eh? Here's RB's address:
ZA Route de la Mirande
38580 Allevard FRANCE
Those foams are designed for Maxx-sized tires and wheels, not 40-series.
Most tires come with foams. The Road Rages do, for example. Check before you order tires to make sure.
Here's a link.
Read this review by Darkhaven.
I'm glad the Savage OWB is working out for you as well as it has for me. Also, thanks for the acknowledgement.
I've been running this setup since around February 1. ...
From your current setup, go up one notch in spring stiffness, shock-oil viscosity, and rocker progression. If that doesn't do it, go up another notch.
