When I started with Traxxas cars, I bought a Bandit myself and a Rustler for the little guy in the house. When I had to do it over again, I would have got two Rustlers.
If you want to try the...
Better swap right front and left rear wheels. Those are on backwards.
I hope you stay away from poles with that Integy alu, otherwise you will need expensive repairs.
Anyway... welcome to the...
What does that have to do with a motor upgrade?
A too tight slipper clutch is a good drive shaft or axle killer.
+1 on what Briber mentioned about the wheel nuts.
C rating on itself says nothing. When you multiply it with the battery's capacity, you get the maximum current that the battery can deliver without too much voltage drop. For example a 7000mAh 50C...
The improvement you need is in the bulkhead, not in the diff itself. Shimming helps, but in my experience the flexibility of the bulkhead is the main cause.
Since I upgraded to alu bulkheads, I...
The way these RC cars are put together, is quite logical and they do not really have weird parts that are put together in a strange way. A conversion, when properly prepared, should be no problem...
Good to hear the foams work better now. Might it be that the GRPs balloon a little bit?
Back in the days that I used NiMH batteries, more than once the wrap came off. As long as they charge properly and don't get very hot, I would just use it.
All the ports deliver power that can be used for lights.
Streetfighters are not too bad, but they balloon way more than G-Locs.
The problem with the Rustler is that the light nose doesn't help much for steering. The front tires need a totally different kind of grip than the rear tires.
G-Locs are tons better than the stockers, especially on hard surfaces. Besides that they wear out way less than the stockers.
You mean these ones?
Ah ok, I understand. It's important that they can't wiggle at the point where the four screws go in. Maybe a support bar solution like you use on the shock towers decrease the possible movement.
The 2075 should be waterproof. Maybe you can get a set of spare gears and get it fixed.
It looks like the glue came off or there was a lack of glue on that spot.
Too much plastic involved?
Edit: Maybe because the bottom of the tripod legs are too far apart from each other.
Too long screws can cause serious problems. Glad you found it.
Sorry to see it didn't go as you hoped. Sad story about the foams. Jacos are not the best foams, but I never had a piece coming off like that.
You imposter! You let anyone else put a different Rustler over there that already had 100mph on the Garmin. No valid proof!
Haha. I bet there are people who realy think like that.
I never saw plastic washers in a Velineon. Long ago that I had that one open. So I have no idea.
Funny thing is that in some stores the Stampede version is more expensive than the Slash one. I remember I had the Slash ones one the rear. I would also take a look at Tekno. I prefer those for the...
Part #3352 is the rebuild kit (bearings, bushings and screws). Part #3354 is the end bell.
Tripod shock tower. Nice idea. Very rigid indeed. Minimum flexing possibility.
Still an awesome thread of a great idea put in practice.
