someone at my LHS told me that traxxas will repair your button it for you if you send it in. has anyone done this or know if its true?
what SHOULD i be getting with a 2wd XL-5 geared velineon?
(runnng a 5000mAH 7 hump pack, 7.4V)
dont use aluminum on any stressed parts, like bearing carriers of A-arms. turn blocks, shock towers are fine i think
same part as deerHurst, i was in a broadside collision and it snapped like a twig. i broke the exact same part on my friends car a week later by ramming his car :rolleyes:
i found this on another forum, haven't even seen the movie yet
so: before anyone tries to persuade me otherwise, i am going to get a velineon system. no castle, no ST engines, and no kits. so here's my question:
should i drop the extra coin at my local hobby...
I'll be going brushless soon enough, but besides a sealed motor, what do I have to do to make my 2WD sand worthy?
Wow, tough hit... But hey, at least your running it. All I can seem to break is bearing carriers :P
havnt heard from you for quite some time, hows your build going? im sure wede all like to see some video
as much as i would love to stay close to traxxas, looks like im going with the castle. thanks for your help guys!
do care about waterproofing?
ill be going on gravle, dirt and road; all for bashing. my plan was for a velineon package with stock gearing: is that a bad plan?
just got new wheels and shock towers, so that would be redundant...
Glad to hear it, but I should mention I've never changed my pinion before, what should I go for?
Alright, so I'm going brushless. do I need a liPo to see a speed difference, or will I beat 40mph with my 7cell? I believe it's a 5000mAh, that enough to get me going?
if you send your old motor/ESC to traxxas, you can get a velineon for a discounted price ($130?)
still not cheap, but with a liPo, its as good as youll get :thumbup:
if i still have a 12T titan, would i have to cover it? or would that not even be enough power to get me over a rise? <_<
not sure if i follow; are you saying ide have to re-gear my car for the velineon, because that isnt as much of a issue as being waterproof. is there a BETTER brushless system for less? because i...
sorry, i double posted... and i dont know how to delete this.
i should mention im on a budget of $60, so i was hopping for one at a time. but i found somthing else interesting:
should i save up for a venolian?
should have gotten the PROLINE rapter body, but oh well. thats just me and my scale looks
so, ive decided its time to give my 12T slash another $50 worth of goodies. now i just need help deciding what should come first:
RPM nerf bars, rear bumper+mount, front and back A arms, and...
i tend to run in somewhat wet conditions, how sensitive is the sidewinder to water? Im not running it into pools or anything, but I'd like to have a motor/esc handle puddles etc.
you hold the lead at the moment, that story will be hard to beat! :thumbup:
surprisingly good looking truck u got there! how are you liking those powerstrokes?
