It'll handle like total garbage, though.. completely different weight distribution and more drag in the front wheels than a real 2wd.
Slash and rustler are very different trucks, very different handling and meant for different surfaces. The rustler is fast, light and 2WD, not really great with areas full of bumps and holes. The...
I got 4 deformed softcase LiPos here that look this way due to chassis flex in the e-revo and hard frontal hits after jumps. This is without damage to the truck, mind you. Took a load of padding to...
A cheap option is the RPM rear skidplate.. it has an extra mounting point that strengthens the rear section, I never broke a chassis again with that in place.
Superglue isn't heat resistant (that's why tires are baked/boiled off the rims), so that'll come off again.. there's epoxy variations that handle 300F once cured.
Says anyone who had a bent/crushed LiPo due to chassis bending or hard nose dives, or a punctured one by little sharp rocks getting into the battery box.
You can look for a replacement rotor, or you can use a heat resistant epoxy or similar to glue the magnets back on.
LiPos never just blow up randomly. Only if there's an accident with them or you treat them wrong. NiMh batteries can explode too, and unlike LiPos, which usually just smoke or burn (unless...
17/54 will probably fry your motor if you run offroad.
Bending the center driveshaft isn't something that happens regulary.. either you had a hard crash that bent the entire chassis briefly, or it...
I can also recommend the yeah racing motor mount.. it's much cheaper and serves the same purpose. I didn't use the bearings it came with, but a 1€ bearing off ebay, and it works just fine, no issues.
You don't need any kind of motor cleaner for a brushless motor either. That stuff is meant to remove the dust from the brushes, which a brushless motor obviously doesn't have. Use compressed air to...
The titan uses oilite bushings, not bearings. You are supposed to use actual oil, as the bushing absorbs some of it. I used to use a generic household oil (the kind used for sewing machines, bike...
Buy the sensors, when they come out.
I do the same, trash them if broken. Our track is astroturf and has a tendency to wrap black nylon strips around the axles.. that will grind down a rubber bearing shield in minutes, no matter if the...
Just about anything that sticks some will do for the servo, it's just plastic gears. You can use lithium grease for example.
I believe the truck comes with a small tube.
Basically anything with long pins or nubs will grip well in grass. It'll wear much faster on hard ground though.
I got mine off ebay, but I just noticed it's apparently no longer made :thumbdown:
Here's some other suggestions: http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread.php?8935394-Gorilla-Snawt
Gorilla Snawt. Sticks great, greases great, lasts a long time.. and inside the diff, it has an effect similar to a light diff oil because it's so sticky.
You'll gain a slight amount of torque, but I doubt it will be hugely noticable.
Running a 7700 kv motor on 3S, that's ~85000 RPM.. I smell bull.
That's way too high in kv, you can't gear that properly when the summer weather hits.
I'm fairly sure it came with a manual, did you check that?
Quite a lot of people use them. I have them in both my 2WD and 4x4, I don't notice a huge difference, but they give me no problems either.
Looks to me like they are not using lexan, but PET or some other brittle plastic. I'd almost say they're "pirated" bodies, cheap copies.
Doubt that'll work, they're completely different.
