  1. 914er's DeltaPlastik Subaru-bodied Rally 1/10

    I've been working on it for about 10 days now in my spare time while staying at this hotel in Florida. I managed to get the Hot Racing struts installed with 60 weight oil, and I soldered a motor fan...

    That was exactly it..... thanks folks.

    I plugged in the lipo battery and it spun right up. Seems weird to me... but I guess that was it.
  3. Thanks folks. It doesnt make sense to me........

    Thanks folks. It doesnt make sense to me..... but that is exactly what happened. I plugged in the original battery just to test it this morning.... not the lipo.

    Ill try again this afternoon...
  4. Something's not right - motor inop???

    This rally is only 3 weeks old... and has only been driven 3 times.

    ..... so I must be doing something wrong. I mailed it to myself here in Florida... took it out of the box this morning, and was...

    You know.... I just purchased a bunch of parts... and I avoided nything "Integy" like the plague... simply based off the recommendations I read here.

    Its funny..... since then.... I've been...

    Bump....

    Does anyone happen to have one of their rear wheels off that can measure for me please?

    I need the exact distance from the mounting surface of the hub to the inner edge of the rim.....
  7. Does anyone happen to have a set of rear Jato...

    Does anyone happen to have a set of rear Jato and/or rear Rustler wheels? I am not having any luck getting anyone to respond over in the Jato forum.

    If possible, would you measure as closely as...

    That company actually makes a LOT bodies that carry the EXACT same dimensions.

    The problem is the euro exchange rate... and the shipping.... then they charge additional for sticker kits and the...

    Thanks Pave.

    Its funny... I LITERALLY just got off the phone with a tech over at JConcepts. He busted out a micrometer and gave me EXACT specifications on both versions of the Rulux wheel that...
  10. specific rear wheel dimensions / offset please?

    Greetings!

    Long story short, I'm building a peculiar Rally 1/10 to match an aftermarket body I purchased from a company in Italy..... that apparently no one has ever used because there is...
  11. I'm going to wait until the body shows up before...

    I'm going to wait until the body shows up before I buy anything. I cannot find another person using that body anywhere.... so I don't want to rely on that "310mm" too heavily. I could need just a...
  12. Ehhh.... We;re only talking about a coupe mm........

    Ehhh.... We;re only talking about a coupe mm..... I think with a little trimming it will look great.

    The d-locs tires are actually a few mm thinner and shorter than the anacondas you are using...
  13. Hmmmm... conflicting information. what does the...

    Hmmmm... conflicting information. what does the tape measure say the body width is?
  14. According to Protoform... the width of that body...

    According to Protoform... the width of that body is 279mm.

    I see a good 4 or 5mm of tire peeking out the back.... for a total of 10(ish)mm extra. ...

    I don't have it yet, but the width is 310mm.... exactly 13mm wider than stock.

    By my calculations.... the outside of...

    That is EXCEPTIONALLY helpful... thank you. I just found the exceptionally low-profile J Concepts "G-locs" tire... and I think it would be perfect for my application. Those are a 12mm hex, right? ...
  17. Ahhhh.... ok... that makes sense. Ok.... I...

    Ahhhh.... ok... that makes sense.

    Ok.... I just had an interesting thought... but first let me throw some specs out here:
    Rally interior wheel diameter - 3 inches (too big aesthetically)
    Rally...
  18. I know I'm going to need the width.... so I think...

    I know I'm going to need the width.... so I think the arms are necessary because I've read post after post of integy failures... especially by extending the axle like that... so I think this is a...
  19. Humay --- I did some research on those arms......

    Humay --- I did some research on those arms... and they add about an inch to the overall width of the car (25mm or 12.5 per side)

    With the reduction in offset using 1/8 wheels.... by my math........
  20. convert to 17mm, and add 5-6mm of width.

    So...... I just learned the hard way that 1/10 wheels do not fit our cars. Fortunately I was able to cancel the orders for tgem before they shipped out.

    I have a body on the way that is exactly...
  21. Well crap..... you are right. The inside...

    Well crap..... you are right. The inside diameter of a 1/10 wheel is 46mm, and the inside diametet of the oem rally wheel is 76mm.

    I just cancelled the purchases of all my wheels and tires........

    The shocks:

    My first goal was to stay away from integy because everyone says their stuff is junk. I also tried to stay away from "no-name" ebay junk. The problem is that there are SO many of...

    Thanks folks for all your awesome advice and recommendations. I've been reading, researching, and listening to every bit of it... weighing my options.... trying to shop smart..... staying in my...

    Pede..... do you have the correct part numbers (or set #) for those traxxas gtr shocks? Of all the shocks I have looked at and priced, they seem the most suitable for what I need, and the most...

    Well.... I dont want to run into any issues just yet.... so I may just stick with a single fan for the motor. Lipo came in today... so I might need it :)

    On a lighter note... I swapped the gear...
