I use the ones for the stampede 4x4. At first I thought they were to stiff, then I drove on them and its pretty amazing. No plushness anymore. I like it for my driving style.
Kingsheadz is the motor mount of choice, from all my research. I was looking at the GH one, thanks for sharing your experience.
Use the stock pede springs and spring retainers on them, top and bottom. I wrapped the shock body in some electrical tape so the top retainer wasn't sloppy.
The springs that come with the big...
This is my fix that I plan on using, since i have the keyed MIP's
17mm Hex that goes directly on the keyed stub axle of the CVD. That with some truggy...
Stopped at the BMX park on my way home. Nothing like hitting a bmx ramp, getting 15 ft of air, and doing it over and over, and go home with no broken parts. Motor temp got way to high though. I...
I always like to finish with 2 coats of black. if you want a nice light color, white first, then black. Most of the pactra colors are transparent, so work better with a backing color.
dx3c is the radio I am buying. Awesome features for the price. Lots of buttons and channel mixing options, and a 3 position button.
I do scale trail runs, and one of the guys brought a rig with metal spur. what a racket.
I occasionally will hose mine off so the wife will let it in the house. I have an air compressor to blow it off with, but it has a small tank so its a bit slow. Armor all on the tires is not going...
I would try a different servo, and make sure your bell cranks are not binding in anyway.
Its the only plastic left in my drivetrain, for the reasons stated above. I want it to shred, not my $75 axles, or differentials.
Put loctite on the grub screw, or it will slip again.
Yep, sure are
I have VGA RAcing springs on my pede with 70w, and its pretty sweet. I like big jumps so it works well. Handles better at speed as well.
Baking only took me 30 min total. it melted the tape i had on the tires though, to the foams :/ Boiling takes forever one wheel at a time.
i have to use trim on pavement. On dirt you just don't notice it as much. its normal, and why one of the dials on the TQI is defaulted to steering trim.
I believe the heavier oil is in the front. The viscosity of shock oil, and diff oil are on different scales. My 70w shock oil is pretty close to 30,000k diff oil.
Not to mention each vendor...
I feel like my pede is going to disintegrate on 3s on the vxl... wow.
Looks sharp, other then being a chev... :D
I use some sand paper to rough up the bead on the rim, if its shiny. Followed with a quick wipe with alcohol. Make sure your bead is seated perfectly, and let the glue "wick" in the bead.
Thought i blew my rear diff, showing off my 3s on pavement at work. Started taking it apart and noticed the screw in pin holding my MIP CVd's to the diff was missing... I did loctite it... a cheap...
I have had a few sources say this. I did try some silicone dry lube, but it still collected dust, which I don't like.
2wd, traction is used only in turning, where 4wd is acceleration and turning. rear is only acceleration. There is more force being applied to the front tires, in different directions.
Now for RC...
Just use the stock ones on your truck now, and swap the spring cup. The progressives that come are for the slash, and they totally suck.
I have some VG Racing stampede springs on order. They are...
I was going to go with the cap route, till i shattered the shock body :)
