I just did this conversion as well. I did the trencher on 3.2 rims, but I keep busting axles. Anyone have an alternative to run the 6mm axles?
Yes, Jimmie, screwing in the pillow balls will help, but will not make it 100%. When my arms are level, the wheels are true at 0 toe. When I am at full suspension travel, they are toed in -2 to 3...
I hear it is an issue for the summits because of the suspension travel. They work fine on the MERV because the arms are more level. I have the same issue with mine, not as bad.
I have been told you...
Here is my wife's rally that I bought used, and I have cleaned it all up and painted a body to closely resemble her new car. I know it is a fiesta body, and a Hyundia car, but close enough :cool:
Thanks for the info pavement.
I will be getting some more goodies tonight at the shop. I will post a build thread when I have all the parts in.
I am doing the similar project right now. How do you like the CVD's?
Yes, I decided to go with a brush 27T or 35T brushed motor, and the waterproof VXL5 ESC. I have had great luck with this setup in my 1/10 crawler.
I got a 1/16 roller, and I am toying with the two options.
The main purpose of this truck is for my son to "crawl" with. I just saw there was a diff locker, so I am going to use that as well.
Here is my wifes rally. painted to match her new 1:1 car
And the chassis, all done up.
WOW, I just did the proline kit. But I think I am liking this MUCH BETTER.
Does anyone have any pics of the Regular or the VXL Stampede with the monster jam front bumper installed?
I am not sure if it would mount up to the tranny.
I installed the 775 motor and yes you need to dremel out the mounts to fit, but it works awesome.
You will also need a new pinion as the 775 motor is a 5mm shaft.
There is a LOT more lower end,...
Thanks for the info guys.
ArmyofDarkness, just finished reading it, as I got the reply.
So I am reading that I need at least a 40-50C rating? on the batteries, is a 25C rated battery no good?
I have looked and looked.
What lipos will fit this thing? I am looking for around 6-8000 mah 2 cell. I tried the Dynamite 6000 last night, but the leads are under the hold down.
You could use this kit. I am going to try it on my Slash MT, just to add a little more width
Thanks for the ideas Baja5T. I am in the process of doing the similar thing, but with my Slash 4x4. My Losi shocks are on there way soon.
We will be using the Jato wheels with the new trencher...
I have a few questions, I got the Slash 4x4 and I'm converting it to a 4x4MT Just have to narrow the chassis now.
Now I am stuck on rims / tires.
I was reading the latest issue of...
Does anyone know here which of the Traxxas receiver boxes are the largest?
Is there any reason to not shorten the wires from the ESC? Other than Warranty.
I am looking to make our slash kind of a trail truck in the spring.
I just want to lock the diffs.
I know I can fill the diffs with silly putty, but is there a spool I can use or etc.?
