    The center diff isn't really hard, just involved. Lots of stuff to pull off to get to the diff.

    I have a set of Street Fighters on beadlocks for other than dirt use, and I added about half a crank of toe in on each rear wheel to help keep the front end forward. And you always want a plastic...

    Ok, I actually read what I'm replying to. If you want to keep the electric start, go with a 3.3 or OS. Wait, I have a spare 3.3, don't I? Yup, there it is. I knew I had one around here somewhere. I...

    I bought mine for $20 with a scraped up head and no manifold, then spent $75 or so on a new head, so for $100, yup. I wouldn't replace a perfectly good 3.3 with one for full price, though. Without...

    I vaguely remember changing the bell at some point, probably after changing the engine. It was crazy fast before, now it's retarded fast. Every bit as fast as my 4Tec. It's pretty much useless on the...

    No problem. I have a 3 channel Traxxas 2.4 around here somewhere that I eventually plan on messing with to make it more suitable for remote start. I'm hoping a spring on the rocker switch will work,...

    True, but it took more effort to put in the center diff and rear brake than the remote start stuff.

    Here's a body I painted for my no. 1 son. Figure I should show it off now before he trashes it.

    At the minimum you need a Losi ROSS module and harness, a small 6 cell NiMH pack or Losi Ten-T lipo, and a 3 channel radio. I got a Revo radio box, too. It holds, with some squeezing, all of the...

    Uh, the kinks in the starting side of it have been worked out for almost 2 years on my Slayer. It's the remote kill system I'm working on. It kills the motor fine, the bracket for the fuel valve just...

    Except for having to manually turn the starter off since you can't program a 4PKS with a momentary 3 position switch the setup with the starter and fuel valve on the same channel works great. I even...

    WD-40 works in a pinch, but its a horrible lubricant. It does displace moisture, which is a major factor, but I prefer an oil designed for this. The various nitro cleaner sprays are worth the...

    Yes, a Hitec 5055 controlling a smoke valve. A non-programmable servo will work, but I'm trying to put it on the same channel as the starter, so I needed to do some creative programming. I think that...

    Slayer Pros only have one steering servo from the factory, so if there's another it was added at some point. No need for it with the smaller wheels and tires compared to the Revo. There's at least a...

    The 2nd half of the video showed me turning off the transmitter with the engine running, which kills the fuel, turns the wheels to the right, and sets 3/4 brakes, but you really couldn't see what was...

    My original 3.3 was running perfect when I pulled it out and put in an OS .21TM I picked up for a song. It was fast before, it's insane now.

    Suppose I'll cheat and just drag this ancient post out instead of making a new one. Lowering the prices to $400 for the Slayer and $250 for the 4-Tec.
  21. FS: Slayer Pro and Nitro 4Tec, both with remote start

    These poor things are just sitting on the shelf looking lonely, so I'm thinking it's time for them to go to new homes:

    OS .21TM
    Sway bars
    Blue aluminum body mounts
