I installed mine after many frustrating adventures re-aligning the rear toe angles. It seemed that every 5th time or so that the truck would land hard, the toe links would jam into the plastic ends...
That one's going to be a pain. Personally, I'd just buy a new bulkhead and some new rocker arm posts. If you ever manage to get it out you'll have a spare bulkhead.
But, drilling and using an...
It's definitely not going to hurt the tires, since it's made specifically to protect rubber. I wouldn't use it on the tread if she's gunning on road, just like I wouldn't use it on my real car...
What OS are you running on your computer? Did you read all of the support documentation prior to trying to install? It's pretty self explanatory.
Vented body is by far the best solution, but my fan helps to keep mine about 10-15 degrees cooler as well. Every little bit helps when you're running hard.
Hopefully it's just me, but I'm a little confused. Do you have a picture?
That pin looks too short to be a hinge pin, unless one of them broke.
Stock tires aren't bad for a while, but you'll definitely want to get some nicer ones. Mine wore really well driving them on asphalt a lot, but only lasted a couple months before starting to...
I run my Big Joes on 18/50 with no issues, so 18/54 would be a good starting point.
I tried cramming them in, but no luck glueing, as they just pushed the sidewalls out too far. 1 wrap of monkey tape and I don't have any issues with ballooning. They still feel very solid.
I'm guessing it'll give you issues with aerodynamics at high speeds. Based on the tires, I'm assuming that's what you're shooting for?.... Taking that much out of the stock body is probably going...
From all of the tires I've seen at the LHS, it looks like Proline just has a generic foam that they ship with all of their monster truck tires.
Mine looked the same. I couldn't stuff them in and had to trim them all to just over half the size they were originally.
I just bought these last week. No bidding wars.... :)
I also found these right off the Traxxas website:
A quick Google search yielded this, among others:
I upgraded to Summit shafts after I broke a stock one, and I'm happy so far. I've heard too many bad things about steel CVDs, so I don't even want to waste the money.
Yes. With the gears you have on hand, try 22/54. I just ran 20/50 on 4s for about a half hour with BIG tires doing speed runs to see how hot I could get them and everything is running around 145(F).
A hacksaw would work fine. They're aluminum, so they'll cut fairly easily. I would recommend smoothing/flattening them out on a sander to remove any burrs and make the nut easier to thread onto the...
Scroll through here and there are a couple decent pictures of the stock rear-end.
The stock rear end looks identical, minus the sway bars and add the turnbuckles that you mentioned. The turn buckles attach between the blue aluminum plate in the back and the bulkhead, then attach...
I'd just put a couple wraps of electrical tape around them if you're concerned. If the tape wears, it's cheaper to replace than batteries. Just make sure you're able to easily identify different...
Try the 22/54 and keep an eye on the temps.
I'm very much interested in the Outerwears cover. I've also kept a close eye on the RC Solutions cage. My pea-brain has been churning (thinking) about building one. I can't see spending the money...
