I had a front pin snap in half
If you have to replace your stocker then there's no reason not too. It's a larger diameter and can with stand more power and heat. I had to install it when I went with the Monster as the stock one...
I run a 5s on my 2200kv, works excellent in sand pits with paddle tires! One of these days I'll pick up a 6s just for :D
Very cool scale looking design design
HPI has some belted tires for the Blitz
I had the same thing happen to my previous 5x15x5 Boca green seal bearing, it seized. I opened it up and it was full of dirt, I did empty all the dirt, lubed it, then it spun good as new after that.
Mine has the blue seals as well, and the seals are much tighter then the traxxas bearings. The King Headz seal is so tight I actually wrecked the seal when I tried to pop it off to inspect the...
For that kind of money, they'd be worth trying! Let us know how they hold up.
It's all about the tires! Look at the contact area from the big Pede tires compared to the little tires on the Slash. Not to mention that the stock Slash tires have almost no traction on any surface...
Drill it out, be careful when drilling so you dont go thru the motor shaft, do small amounts at a time. You could also grind away at the set screw with a dremel and a cut off wheel. Again, be careful...
Im keeping mine for when the snow hits, got to lover the water proof Velineon.
If you mainly run a 2s then the stockers should be ok for you. Have your stock shafts shown any signs of wear yet?
This is a big problem area for this truck.
Great idea on the foam around the bearing, I'm going to try that!
I got the new King Headz motor mount along with their alloy slipper bearing adaptor to replace my STRC mount and 5x15x5 Boca bearing. Here are some pics of the install along with some comparison...
Yes, mine broke in the same spot.
Ok, Sue at MIP returned my call and gave me the part number for replacement pins #1147 (2 pins, 2 set screws, 2 couplings) and that they would cost $12.95. I then...
I just tried that, it went to head office voice mail. I'll keep trying thru out the day.
They're really there at 5am? I called the sales and tech lines at 6am pacific time and got voice mail, so I left 2 messages.
Thanks, I'll give them a call Monday.
Broken X-Duty pin
I was working on my truck tonight and as I rolled it on the floor I noticed I was getting some binding. A closer look and I see the front drive pin closer to the axle was coming...
Stormerhobbies has the MIP X-duties for 49.95/pair
lol that's just so sad, it really is. When it gets right down to it, it's a only a toy lol. Hating on a truck because it has big motor and esc in it doesn't make sense, it should be the other way...
I just got my new body today too, I got a Jconcepts Manta.
The tires come glued to the rims. One way of breaking down the glue is to put your wheels in a pot of boiling water, take them out after a few mins and once they start to cool down the glue will...
Here's a 1:1 example of a pre-runner
