Need to sell this ASAP
I purchased this Slash last summer from a local hobby shop and I've added some extras to it, but now I need to sell it for a different hobby that I'm more heavily involved in.
Here's what you...
Nice job! I almost took the same route when I installed my sidewinder combo, but opted to mount the esc up front opposite the servo in hopes of a little more airflow, not sure if it helped much.
On 2s I think your looking at around 35-45mph. I clocked almost 40mph with 23/86. With more gearing and 3s I believe speeds in the 50's might be achievable.
Ive ran 16/90, 16/86 and 23/86 with no problems on 2s (I think those are the stock gearing numbers). Just recently made the switch to 32p and have ran 18/54 with no problems, but it was getting on...
The offset difference from front to rear is something like 2mm per side so its not much of a difference if you run the same offset all the way around.
I was running 23/86 but changed over to 32p yesterday. Now im running 18/54, it still wheelies and the top speed is up there but the motor runs hotter and the pack doesnt last as long. Trying 14/54...
Lovin the road weapons!
The rusty tires have hooked up good for me on dirt and pavement but they are starting to look like slicks from all the pavement runs.
They are rusty rear tires all the way around in that pic, stampede rears are on in the other ones.
I expect the pin in the top-shaft to go first, but the stock axles are bound to fail eventually. While beating on these trucks does lead to breaking parts, fixing it up bigger and better every time...
Here's mine, sorry in advance if there are too many pics or too big!
Here are some quick videos I recorded today on my phone. Better ones coming soon :cool:
After some tuning I finally have a wheelie machine with the sct3800 on 2s. Rusty tires and a tight slipper and it wheelies on command all day :)
Dreaded, what offset are those wheels? Also, are you managing wheelies with 2s?
My pede wheels and tires showed up this morning and I managed to get a quick run in with them before leaving for the day. Still no wheelies and I messed up and got 4 rears so the front ones rub the...
Ive read that you need to get 4 rears in order for them to fit and have the correct offset, since apparently the fronts have more of an offset to them? Is that only on the 2wd?
Edit- Found the...
I believe his gearing may be why he is having heat issues with that setup, since its the 4600 I think you would want to gear it to a higher ratio since its not going to produce as much torque as a...
I cant figure out how some of these trucks Ive seen videos of are getting traction. My setup feels like it has the power even without lipos but it just spins the tires, I cant imagine how it would...
