IMO very bad idea. Places a exaggerated moment on whole chassis, better to refine any driving skills you have
I would have liked to hear their insight - too bad they didn't post -oh well that's good they did what they did!
Looks to me like something kept the outer bearing race from seating properly and when load was applied to the inner race (by the spring) it applied a heavy lateral load to the bearing that it was not...
two batteries = a LOT of unnecessary weight. personally, I go faster and swap batteries in my kits
Even on 3s SPCs, (1500 mah) it's worth it but that's just me
someone bring me my banjo
(no offense to banjos, I really like em)
You can but you better know why it's right for you. Some love em some hate em, there advantages and disadvantages. And yes, extra power equals broken parts no matter how you do it pretty much.(skill...
I wanna know why they go to all the trouble to design a new chassis and leave the CG so ridiculously high
yea I would not expect RTV to seal a rotating surface. I don't remember anyone saying they have no leakage but I keep the mating surface on the outdrive semi polished with scotchbrite and am super...
Exactly. It may seem logical but it is in fact wrong.
the skid plates are just that. Think of them as sacrificial. You have to throw out any 1:1 logic here if you want your kit to be fast and durable.
The suspension is designed to and should bottom out. It is a means of dispersing energy without over stressing the suspension components and also it allows suspension setup that works properly - if...
IDK what those are but the dimensions have to be precise
This will help a lot of people (and it has a logical title for easy searching - hint)
Good job all
Forget the 1.9 crawler wheels, waaaaay too heavy.
and as for grass, yes , you need something more merv or summit like but, also remember, like sand it takes power to run through it (using power...
I'd talk to others that race on the same track - staggered setups are pretty track specific I'd think
Just set the mesh in the opposite direction so when tightened it winds up perfect. I'm guessing the flat on the plate where the washer seats is not square to the screw hole so the washer grabs one...
why do you want a larger than 55T spur? - you want to gear it down?
don't think there's room even if they did.
Nothing off topic in that post my friend. My response was directed at the person quoted. If you are not interested in the contents of a post, please disregard it like most people do instead of trying...
what are you using for a brake? also know that although nitro is in fact very cool, it's not as fast -
but whatever, go for it
+1 on the SPCs Top notch product and CS
Ha! dude, you make it sound like he just sawed up a '62 Corvette! Is there a shortage of twelve dollar plastic traxxas chassis? Give me a break!
Who cares. Laugh all you want, I give him respect...
Read and understand this:
That sure looks like a T bone stiffener to me and as for the gears, that looks like a flat piece of aluminum so.....that invalidates that one too. Sure the first version is not gorgeous but my guess...
Traxxas #7059 (with steel balls) period.
Nothing stronger in my experience, I run 'em on Lunsford links 8 places
