    ran a 5000Mah 3s duratrax pack and at the end of my run i noticed that the truck was making a weird grinding noise like i got a rock in a gear or something, further investigation showed it is actually the rotor, the center shaft is loose inside the neodynium magnet so i tapped the shaft down out of one side and cleaned it all up and slapped it back together with some metal and glass jewelry glue, time to see what happens.

    i tried to reglue it i ran into a couple of potential problems, 1, the balance, 2 i marred up the magnet with my pliers while getting the shaft out, im gonna have to pull it apart again and see if i can clean up that magnet some more because it has a new whine from inside the motor can, this motor may be near its end what is the best price on a stock replacement?

    This Motor is not good for 3s in the long run. It runs too hot. Especially in 4x4 vehicles.

    I think you can buy only the rotor seperately if you plan to stay on the VXL-3s Combo.

    personally. i prefer the question "what survived today's beatings?"
    the list is much easier to give that way.


    What happened after i hit the sound barrier? my car exploded. luckily the screw that holds the pinion on wasn't broken.

    not mine.

    just cleaned the magnet up and checked the bearings and then went on a 3s run up and down the street just speed runs little or no brake usage and 50* farenheight outside. and the motor got to 200 degrees on my infared temp gun. It performed excellent but now ive got to seriously look into heatsink/fan combo

    Man, that's some crazy stuff! I managed to bust a half shaft but that's peanuts compared to that flaming rig above! It did however result in me ordering some MIP's though .

    That's what I was thinking, I can't see any other reason why it would catch fire that bad... Can lipos just explode like that or is it caused by a strong impact?

    Very unlikely but yes lipos can "explode" or catch fire if they are shorted or overcharged.

    Ah ok, I knew they could explode if overcharged or shorted but you don't overcharge a battery while driving lol maybe it shorted somehow

    Broke a barrel in the CV joint on front Tekno axle and subsequently lost the pin. I wasn't even driving very hard or hit anything when it broke. The front axles maybe have a total of 10-15 runs on them. If it happens again, might have to go to MIP's up front too.
    The message above or below may or may not be true

    Broke front RPM arm. Second time I broke my right front. Not sure why, getting little frustrated. Mild hits too.

    Bend the first shock shaft after 2 years now. Just bend it back for now. So it it worth getting the titanium nitride ones?

    Ok now I ordered the stronger shafts and a shock rebuld kit too.

    So what shock oil is best for my 7 lbs 4s basher? Stock is 30k I guess.

    So are the spider gears of the XO-1 Diff identical to the stock diff? Then I would only need a new Diff Case since I still have the spider gears of the stocker.

    crazy, busted the half shaft last Sat. Bought a new one and ordered rear MIPs online firguring if it happened once it'd probably happen again. The very next day I busted the front stub axel! That day I ordered MIPS for the front and opted to just run run 2wd until the MIPs came in. Swapped out the busted fronts to the MIPS last night , then today I snapped a rear stub axel! That's three busted drivelines in about 1 weeks time! Luckly I have the rear MIPs sitting on my counter ready to go in. Wonder what will go next?

    I think my rear diff is jacked up.... sometimes my p4de cogs really bad when starting very slowly from a dead stop. I can hear something slipping too, like gears not quite meshing.

    Ordered the XO-1 gears with the I bar, and a new diff cup. Should be here tomorrow.

    Yesterday broke the proline rear shock tower where transmission holds in place on my 2wd. Attempting to jump a curb while doing a wheelie is not a good combination. Lol. Btw It was not intentionally, I know better than that.
