You can safely use your parallel adaptor and run both batteries at the same time. The parallel adapter will combine the mah, but keep voltage the same essentially giving you the runtime of both...
I've been happy with the Traxxas Steel CVD's.
I wound up just getting the pre mounted dirt hawgs...
Probably, helps prevent stripping teeth on the ring and pinion diff gears.
Fair enough, I have them on mine rear only and they work great for what it's worth.
Any reason you didn't go for these?
Back the motor off so the pinion and spur no longer touch and see if it will roll freely. Then go from there.
I second the shimmed diffs. While you have access to the diff I would open it up and check its fluid fill level. From the factory my front had a good amount of fluid but my rear was bone dry.
Once you get familiar with the MERV it is not so bad to work on!
30k front and rear. When I run the center it has 100k, but I don't really like the center diff for my style of driving.
I run Summit purple springs front and rear. Front are threaded all the way out and rear are threaded in so the rear arms return to level when the truck is dropped from about a foot up. I run 70wt...
I run 70wt in my shocks with the purple summit springs and probably could have gone heavier. Shim your diffs!!! I run 23 pinion 50 spur on the stock 380/VXL-3M system in the summer on 2x2s in...
I honestly don't remember what color seals my HR bodies had. I know I used a combination of the stock seals and the seals that came with the bodies. I have no leaking at all.
I have both the HR Shock bodies and the HR front body mounts. I've never had a body mount screw strip out. My issue was the stock plastic body mounts would sand off sliding on the street and the...
You will need to solder on a battery plug and will have to fasten the esc to the chassis with Velcro or double sided tape or something as its not a direct fit, but otherwise it's gonna haul!
Sorry yes I meant 4600, typo! I plan on eventually upgrading my own MERV to the 4600, you are ahead because you are brushed so you won't need anything else, just the Castle combo.
Welcome! The Ultimate is great fun. Let the upgrades begin!
I think he meant the 1/16 slash?
You will need the smaller motor mount and dust cover. Personally if I was starting off with a brushed vehicle I'd go with the castle sidewinder 4700 combo. It will be much more powerful and run a lot...
Or put it on the forum marketplace!
I agree, I was thinking more along the lines of 100-150. The hobby shop is gonna treat you like a used car dealer. Better off selling privately I would think...
So I fabbed up a new pin out of a heavy duty body clip from my 1/10th Summit. A quick test run around my street and it held up. We'll see how it does doing backflips off ramps lol
Reviving an old thread here. I have been running the Traxxas Steel CVD's for about 2 years. Last night was the first time I've ever thrown a pin. Somehow the rubber retainer shifted allowing the pin...
