    I just heard some clicking in the front end and only when I break hard. I'm sure it's the front diff. but I haven't had time to pull it apart yet. 😩

    Took her to the local bmx track yesterday and thrashed her but good.

    After a few bad landings clearing the doubles I was pleasantly surprised to see my body was still in good shape.

    For all you doubters out there I have not reinforced my body and landed a few times from 10' in the air straight down on my SLASH 4X4 rear bumper and the only damage was a lost body clip.

    P.S. the new MAXX Chevrons handled the hard packed clay rather well, next time there I'll try my street fighters.

    Shock caps popped off. The threads weren't messed up, I repaired once in the field but after the second time called it quits as the oil had leaked out completely. Aluminum ones ordered now, hopefully that will help.
    Drive it till the tires fall off!

    Broke the screw mounts off the ESC. It was cold out and I went to remove the battery and when it finally came apart it jerked the esc and broke where the screws hold it to the body.

    Yeah, I do not have jump control down yet! Finally realized I probably have to brake more to level her out then throttle. Didn;t get it right this time .





    Ha, ha, but it popped right back out .

    single digit weather and another bad landing didn't bode well for the front end of my Pede .

    No, never even heard of doing that! I just read about it though. Looks like they don't recommend doing for new parts that will be used in the cold shortly afterwards. I may do it this summer though, or too some of the parts I won't be using right now Thanks for sharing that!

    Toasted a spur gear, which gives me an excuse to put a 50t gear on again ;-) Also snapped off the battery hold down post in the chassis. The crack where the nerf bar goes has been there. Yes, I know I'm technically using a slash chassis at the moment

    I already had a velcro strap as backup. May just go with that for now. Was thinking of making slots on each side at each end of the battery to run additional straps around the battery and through the chassis.
