yea i realized that after a bit, and the digger pushrods. lol yea i got my list all set up just gonna be replacing as it breaks which might be often as it goes up against my buddies mini summit and tmxx 3.3.....But thanks i'll def be keeping it up to date on all mods...
what's a good gearing for the stock set up? noticed my temps were getting up around 170 on the motor and if i remember the esc was 120....
Mine was the opposite.
im running 23/50 with 2s and im still getting the same temps but i was gunning it most of the time.
Emaxx #3903, MERV
Looks good! Like the green!
Are you going with pro-line bead locks?
i'm not sure which ones i'm going with yet i had a set of the pro-line bead locks in my hands this weekend and i just thought they were on the heavy side. i love the looks of them just not sure i want all that extra weight that come with them. ive been checking out the hpi mesh rims and road rages. might be getting a set from someone off here but if i get them at a good price i'll prob end up buying another set and prob get the pro-line bead locks anyways....lol....
minirevo...yea i'm running 2s and pretty much gunning it the whole time too...lol gonna get some pinions this weekend and another spur or two well if my lhs has them. so since it's something i want they prob wont have them so will have to order some...if i lose some power off the line i'm ok with that as it would help my tires last alittle longer...
I really like the green arms. Only thing they'd make me want to slap a Digger shell on it. Nice build my friend.

Yea I know what u mean digger. Here's the first body I ever did up with my first kit truck I had when I was 11 or So. Looks good for almost 20 Yea old! Lol I'll have one for it sooner than later....
But tonight my servo finally went. Well striped one of the gears in it, was able to rotate gear to keep running but going to lhs
tomorrow and picking a hitech servo..
What hitec one? Good choice by the way.
Emaxx #3903, MERV
Not sure yet.gonna do some looking online tomorrow before I go. Yea I have a hitech for my throttle/brake servo On my slayer pro and haven't had any issues with So was a easy choice.
well i've been checking out the hs85mg and the hs5085mg hitech servos. and was wondering what differences i would notice between the two i know the 5085 is a digital and gonna guess just the 85mg is analog. but what would i notice in performance between the two.
and has anyone tried using hitech ms82mg servo? its alittle weaker in power like 2in/#'s but it's quicker.

Great lookin build! Bright green and black look great together. The grave digger lid is nice but if you ever replace it Kawasaki or Monster would look great on that bad boy.
oh the grave digger lid is from my very first lid i ever did up when i was a kid for my first kit truck i got back than. i'm looking into another body right now and have a friend that's pretty good with drawing and painting and gonna have him do up some bodies for me.
just seeing who has experience with the pro line titus wheels. looking for a set and just wondering how people liked them. all i mainly do is alot of bashing, i'm not going to set it up speed runs or anything. just a good all around basher. but i'm def going to get the dirt hawgs.....and possibly a set of the RPM revolver rims.
ERBE, MERV BB
yea just said screw it and ended up going with the titus wheels, if i don't like them i have a friend i can sell them too. but going with the dirt hawgs. also ordered traxxas gtr shocks with a set a black and tan springs and got some 70wt shock oil. and also getting a hitech hs85mg servo. and also will be picking up some new pinions and spurs....
Awesome keep us updated bro!
ERBE, MERV BB
I like my hitec hs85mg servo. You should be happy with it.
Emaxx #3903, MERV
well got all my parts from my lhs except my servo so just picked up new gears for my stock servo for the time being. and tonight i'm going to pick up a new lid for it just a stock one and gonna order a proline raptor body. and prob get a air brush kit. gotta love out of towners at the poker hall at the casino...lol..
yea trying to. found the integy piggy back shocks they have in green but already had ordered the traxxas gtr shocks. and personally haven't had much luck with integy. and not a big kawasaki fan. lol just started the build around the green rpm arms...
but i'll have pics up tonight hopefully of all my new parts...
well have a update. got majority of my parts installed. installing new ring and pinion tonight as well as finish painting a body for it. nothing special with the body just a stock clear body. i have a pro line raptor body on the way. not sure when i'll get that one done as i also finally got my flo tek body for my slayer pro...pics tonight..
Well here are some pictures finally. Have done a fair amount of upgrades since last time. Replaced ring and pinions shimmed diffs, tires and rims, two new bodies, Traxxas cvds, Traxxas gtr shocks, raptor body, and looking into another set of rims and tie rods and push rods[IMG][/IMG][IMG][/IMG]

Lol also picked up a set of stock rims have a broken one, some body post and front and rear skid plates. Have a lot to put on this weekend and hopefully get my other body painted. But will get pics with all new goodies
Well here it is with the traxxas shafts traxxas gtr shocks and strc front and rear hd skid plates. Have a few more things coming next week and just debating if I should get some paddle tires and make it into a pond runner. Lol. Here's more pics
Nice green aint ugly!
Dirt Hawgs.... best tires I had on my Merv so far.
The STRC silver goes well with it.
Nobody is born with experience
An aluminum mid plate would help.stiffen up the chassis
yea i gotta order one. my lhs just had those hidden on one of their racks.
finally got my raptor body painted and turned out pretty good. still waiting for for some more parts. have a new bumper on order to run with the raptor body didn't really feel like chopping up the rpm bumper i just got, also getting a set of sand paws (wanting to attempt crossing my pond) and have a 3s on its way. heres some pics...
That is awesome.
Big Air Don't Care
Installed a heat sink today along with some cleaning and had to reshim my rear diff. Also wired up some l.e.d.s on a summit bumper also sincertain that was the only bumper I got to work with my raptor body. I have a aluminum bumper ordered and my traxxas center steel shafts are on back order till mid august but sand paws and a new 3s battery will be here mid next week hopefully. More pics to come.
well got half my order the other day. Got my sand paws, HR aluminum push rods, 3s 35c 1800 lipo. Also picked up some green digger tie rods, just until I find ones that i like. I'll prob just get the black HR tie rod replacments and try and find some green rod ends for them. I'm still waiting on my steel center cvds (traxxas), some rockers, center skid plate, front bumper for my raptor body. i got my tires taped and mounted just not glued yet. but heres a couple pics. more to come.
Those tires are sweet! Do you have a part number fOr them?
Pro line #1052-01 and hpi #2196 if I remember correctly.
