I don't know anyone who does it another way other than above, including myself.
Yes you could do that. All the positives (on the receiver) are tied together and all the negatives are tied together. This way, there is always 6 volts going to your servos. With that said...
You're gonna have to cut off the tabs on the servo connectors so that they can plug into the receiver. Other than that it's pretty much plug and play.
I took out the reverse and never looked back. FOC all the way.
Sounds like you're talking about the optidrive. That's what keeps you from shifting into reverse accidentally.
In the manual there is a procedure to setup the optidrive so that it operates...
Fit's my truck perfect too. Much better alternative than cutting up the stock box.
I agree with the other posters. Dump the wheelie bar and get a wing. Let the wing be your wheelie bar :). Works quite well, plus adds better protection for the motor.
I would love to see a pic of this setup!
Also, where are you getting the hardened diff gears from? Is it a coming up traxxas part or aftermarket?
I use a os lc3 and trinity platinum 30%. Works great for me.
I saw this on another forum. Mine is on order :).
Mine didn't make it through break-in on one charge either. But you gotta remember and 1 tank of break takes forever in comparison to after break-in where you racing it around.
Your wheel/axle bearings could be going out. Once crud and stuff gets inside your bearings, they won't spin as freely anymore.
It has the horns for both steering and throttle in there. That's what I use. I have a hitec for the steering (and the throttle).
You need this.
Yup, you'll need that kit. It's not expensive at all. I've got a hitec as well, and the teeth on the hitec servo are different than the stock servo (has either more or less, can't remember which)....
You might need the aftermarket servo horn kit depending on what servo you're going to run.
This is one wierd problem that has never happened to me.
I'm preparing for a race tommorrow, and after getting my truck fixed and back together, I wanted to take it out for a little test and tune....
Windows media player should be preinstalled on a xp machine. Use that, if you haven't removed it. Otherwise download the latest version from microsoft.
Yes you are correct. 2 per pushrod. Simply unscrew the ends, throw on the spacers and put the ends back on. The idea is so that the pushrod is a tad longer to compensate for the P2 rockers.
You didn't mention if you turned any of the tuning needles. Try richening it up first.
Do you have a temp gun? If so, what does it read at the beginning and the end of the tank?
I've tried to repair it before. No dice. You're better off with a new body or complete assembly.
I have it and I like it. Didn't notice much in terms of performance, but the temp of the actual muffler went down quite a bit. No more burning myself by accidentally touching the exhaust :).
From looking at you signature, I'd say the backflips are the culprit.
The only time I have ever broken a ring gear, was because of backflips. Landing under full throttle on just the front 2 tires...
Checking for really high temps, such as 350 is really easy without a temp gun. For starters you'll probably be seeing smoke coming from the head. Also, if you spit a little on the head, it'll...
