    Yeah, since then I've been getting into other RC hobbies and have half a dozen lipos in the mix now, so I've been paying much more attention to charging. I've also upped the safety of my charging...

    3S Battery Question

    My 2S SPC lipo burned in a fiery blaze last fall (my fault, didn't pay attention when charging). I've been missing my pede and I need to get a new battery. I have a Castle Sidewinder 3 and Castle...

    Mine does the same, but I had a 3s plugged in as well. I had the balance lead connected to that one, so everything looked ok.

    Now I make sure to unplug everything when I'm done charging. I also...
  4. Been a while, need a battery, have a spare 3s I'm thinking of using.

    It's been a long while since I've been active here, at least it feels like it! I have a 2wd Stampede, with a Castle Sidewinder 3/ 3800kv motor combo & aluminum tranny case. I still take it out...

    Ah, thanks. Didn't realize they could be gotten separately. Was kind of hoping RPM had gotten into the game too though.

    Extended A Arms

    It's been a while since I've been in here. I built up my Stampede last year, pretty much ended up with a completely new one from scratch after all was said and done. The leftovers became a pretty...

    Check Pepboys too, especially local ads. Some of their stores sell Stampedes. My local one had a couple for 20% off on a table up front not too long ago. Coupons would work there.

    That is some hot stuff. I've been wondering if a Lightning McQueen body could be made. I've seen some homespun ones that were... close, but I'm looking for something top notch. My son would flip.

    If the pinion is turning the spur and the wheels are not moving, it's likely something inside the transmission.

    Take the spur and slipper off, make sure there is a small pin through the shaft...

    Probably a good excuse to replace the bushings with bearings then. avidrc.com is a good source for them, or Traxxas has them as well.

    The Traxxas caster blocks should come with the pins. They'll screw in from the bottom. If you go with bearings, it's certainly not going to hurt to upgrade the carriers as well. I put aluminum...

    What parts do you need to convert over to the AE slipper? Do you happen to have any links? I've been Googling around, but not quite sure what to look for so my searches are coming up bust.

    I wouldn't worry about the steel shafts. I'm using the 4x4 shafts (plastic) and they're fine. I ran with the stock shafts for a while too with no problem, just moved them over to the kids' truck...

    Yep, that's how mine works. Those things won't come out of the slot either, once they're in. It's a good solid connection to the chassis though.
