    I have been hearing a lot about the new TRX ID connectors lately, and after doing a fair amount of research, I have an idea of the overall concept of their operation. But there are a few things that...

    Do you put the shim between the drive pinion and its bearing, or between the diff housing and its bearing?

    The ESC has everything to do with speed. A brushless motor is a stepper motor. The ESC controls the pulses of electricity that are sent to the motor. If you had a variable motor drive, you could make...

    Ball bearings on the rockets and the bellcrank will smooth out a lot of the MERV's handling. I used the old plastic bushings as shims when I got a CF chassis.:lol:

    I suggest Hitec HS-85MG servo. It has all metal gears and ball bearings on the output spline. The stock steering arm won't fit it, though. An aluminum Losi crawler arm will be the best fit. The Losi...

    I have RPM knuckles, and am actually glad for the minor popping out factor. If I land my MERV awkwardly from a jump, I'd rather have a knuckle pop loose than to have an A-arm break. When the knuckle...

    I don't own an XO-1, but knowing that it's 4WD, I might suggest that something is going on with the front drive train, or an issue with bearings. The front bulkhead might be loose and the torque of...

    Yeah, I expect my MERV to be pretty much indestructible once I
    get a T-Bone brace. The CF chassis allows for excellent ventilation
    to the batteries and esc. The whole reason that I got a CF...

    Thanks. I think I'll go for the T-Bone brace. I want something that will mount to both
    bulkheads as well as the chassis. The only issue with the CF chassis is that there are
    fewer holes on the...
  11. Installed Integy Carbon Fiber Chassis, Need Input On Chassis Brace

    I recently got an Integy CF chassis for my MERV. Everything went together quite well,
    but due to what I've read/heard about the quality of Integy's products, I'm
    hesitant to do any hardcore...
