As much as i like nimh batteries, it's lipo all the way for me.
The only thing that I don't like about lipo, is who fast they degrade in their cycle life.
I race, and it's all about driving skills...
I run a flat washer in my diff, and there is a big difference in traction.
Lets say you are driving up a gravel hill, both wheels will spin at the same time giving you traction.
With out the...
It is what is, and you get what you pay for.
No one likes high shipping cost for anything from overseas.:eek:
you will have to trouble shoot,
first, make sure you have compression, meaning roll the flywheel to see how much resistance it has.
second, check to make sure fuel is getting to the engine. if...
what kind of program is that on the computer screen?
I love my LiFe battery's, they have not let me down like lipo's.
My lipo's died one by one, they did last about one year.
Money gone to the lipo fairy I guess.
I have put together two 6 volt...
Just curious, what kind of battery? how many volts, and what is your gearing?
you need to solder the braided wire back on. its connected to the brushes.
you should not see any shock thread if you have fully tightening the shock cap.
how tight are you tightening the caps?
don't try this
Thanks for the insight on my mod, and your 100% right about the bind/rub.
But i did have limited slip action.
I now run it the regular way.
Everyone disregard my mod.
it is very effective, but don't take my word on it. i rather have another forum member review it.:D
I have done this mod a little differently, instead of metal washers I use two traxxas Teflon washer on the inner diff case, one on both sides.
I have won many races with my rustler, with many set ups, but i must say that the 19 turn check point or any good spec 19 turn power by a lipo rocks on the track.
the first motor wire nearest to the shock tower with motor mounted, goes to black, middle to red, last to white.
my son is 9 too, but i put a 23 turn titan motor is his rustler geared at 23/86.
this way he learns a lot about driving the rustler, while being easy on my pocket for parts.
The best option is to use suspension pins with eclips.
glue and blue loctite will will be stuck to the metal thread making it worse.
what pitch is the Tamiya pinion?
It's very possible that the pinion is the wrong pitch, and will lead to a worn out spur gear.
The a123 2s battery charged cut of voltage is different than lipo 2s battery.
a123 2s battery charged=7.30 volts
lipo 2s battery charged=8.4 volts
So you could charge the a123 with the...
It's a new battery technology built off of lithium-ion, they use proprietary Nanophosphate technology that is built on nanoscale materials.:D
I run a 2s a123 battery that I put together.
But it seems to me that, a lot of people dog a123 batteries.
And don't own on a123 cell.
Yeah it my be slower compared to what?;)
Very false info Dj1793.
what's your set up?
don't forgot some toe in in the rear.
