These arms move the rear wheels further back relative to the rest of the truck, rather than farther out. Wheelbase refers to length rather than width.
I definitely prefer 2s for off road. I drove my slash off road with a 3s a couple times and had heat issues and really just more power than I needed. With a good 2s battery, you can still get plenty...
My vote goes to SPC. I have a lot of 2s batteries from them and my truck runs great with them.
There's still a good amount of thread sticking past the end of the locknut on mine with stock axles and normal width hexes.
Here's my slash 4x4
Ultimate edition (running the center diff)
Castle 3800 and Sidewinder
Airtronics MX-V radio
MIP race duty steel CVDs all around
Hitec 7955TG (total overkill but I...
I just measures some 2wd front hexes against standard 4wd hexes. The 2wd hexes will add about 3mm to the width on each side. Not a ton, but it would help a little
17 mm adapters won't work with those wheels. Slash 2wd front hexes would widen it a little bit. Those are traxxas part number 3654.
Looking at pictures, it seems the transmission placement is different on the revo 3.3 chassis than the erbe chassis, so the traxxas center CVDs made for the e-revo probably wouldn't fit the nitro...
That's what I run in my erbe. It is the same Castle motor, but it's just rebranded by HPI and has a different heatsink on the can.
Here's a good video from Jang at URC on reinforcing and repairing a body using shoe goo and dry wall tape.
Looks good! Awesome color scheme
Well I finally turned my erbe into a proper monster truck!
Make sure you take the motor and esc off so you can get a better angle on the lock nut with the wrench.
I know it seems backwards but I have a 1/16 e-revo and the 23 tooth is the "speed pinion" even though it would make the truck slower but running two batts in series with the stock pinion overloads...
Yeah I think that's what op is referring to. I believe stock is 28 tooth and the "high-speed" is a 23 tooth.
7107 is the 1/16 e-revo vxl. But either way it's still the same idea to get the pinion off.
Don't forget to shim the diffs. It'll dramatically increase the life of the diffs.
You need to leave the front diff and drive shafts because if you remove the drive shafts the front wheels will have nothing to spin on. Just remove the center drive shaft that connects the...
Sweet! I'll have to get one soon to match my full size e-revo! Whoever gets one first, please post lots of pics!
I don't have an opinion on what a reasonable selling price is, but I tend to agree with jonasrafael in the sense you might not have had to spend so much if you bought upgrades when stock parts broke...
When you check the receiver, pop open the case and look for moisture, but be careful not to touch any of the receiver components as you could short them out. Also it might be a good idea to check...
