I also recently had to replace the rear diff beacause of clicking - just as you described. I suspected a missing tooth on the gears or something, but the real wear is surprisingly not that big.
Any opinion on those wheels? Are they OK?
I am totally impressed with your work!
I'm here too! Just more focused on my Axial SCX10 :cool:
Good idea and nice fabrication. And gearing is still possible to change if I'm not mistaken ;)
go for stiffer springs - from the summit range. I am using below setup and love it!
7245: Spring, shock (GTR) (2.925 rate, blue) (1/16 Summit)
7246: Spring, shock (GTR) (3.2...
You could refresh nimh batteries per few weeks on a charger with discharge/charge cycle - if your charges has such option.
Slow charge would be better - at C/10 or below (10% of the rated capacity)
+1 on bad servo
you might be in training mode - check the manual and set normal mode on ESC.
this way it cannot work - 6v is enough just for 2-3 LEDs in series depending on colour (power consumption).
you need to use separate circuits and resisors for 8 LEDs
This could help you:...
I am also running 2x2S to get better punch and longer run times. Moreover I like extra stability because of higher weight.
Suspension have to be fine tuned - I have summit blue springs in front and...
Servo is very likely to cause overall behaviour problems. No mods required, just servo reversing on the remote.
Check where this noise is coming from. I would guess:
- the diffs - new ones usualy have "tight spots" on the ring, which wear out over time - would match half wheel turns
- other then that oil...
true, true ... didn't notice ...
Put your ESC and receiver (just in case ...) in dry rise - it should take all the moisture out of your electronics over a night or two.
Could be saved since it is still partially operational.
Maybe only the screw holding the pionion gear on the motor is loose or even lost?
If you plan to stay in the hobby I suggest you invest in a good microprocessor charger with LIPO balancing capability. It lets you monitor amps that went into the battery and charges much faster than...
I also think that 2x 2S in parallel delivers more power to the system, since both batteries are drained and ESC has more amps to feed the motor.
Have you tried both servo channels? Possibly only broken, badly bend wire???
Can you double check servo on a different/operating system? How old is your BB?
What batteries? What charger? Lipos were balanced properly and undamaged? There is a lot of questions to investigate what has happened. I hope your electronics is OK!
OK - it is hex 1,3mm
I've found it is 0,50". Should be 1,2mm hex. Will confirm when I check which bit fits.
And my guess would be worn gears inside the servo itself. The final gear that you attach servo horn on the "inside" is connected to the potentiometer that tells the servo position of the horn. To me...
If in doubt keep exploaded prints at hand and most of maintance jobs you can easly find on Youtube for guidance.
