    Well was able to make it through a run tonight with out any issues. Ended up putting some glue on the driveshaft pin and is holding in place so far. Really enjoying the MMP, have so much more control. Now just need a Neu!

I have a 45 spur kinda wanna put that on and mess with that for a bit. I have a 3s just haven't had chance to run it yet.

    Did some running in the parking lot at work, and have to say my merv ran great and couldn't ask more for handling. Also did a late night project last nigh. Just took a quick pic. I'll take more once the trucks back together checked my difs last night all is wearing good.

    yea i'm happy with the way they turned out. couldn't complain for 5 bucks. they come assembled and all you have to do is mount them and plug them into your RX. they are the halo light or reg white led.

    not to much light in the dark nothing. it doesn't shine down on the ground or anything but i'm going to run a summit bumper and i have to led's in that in the outer holes and i have some green ones laying around that i'm going to see what they look like in the two center holes with the chrome cans on the bumper and have a summit rear bumper i'm putting some red led's in. i'll take some more pics tonight with the lights out with the truck on the ground to give a idea on the light outputs.

    Yea they def aren't that bright. Lol. How does that handle roll overs?

    So ran the merv today and my esc came off. I used some 3m double sided tape that's used for car moldings. Is there something else that can be used? Gonna try what I have again maybe add another strip.

    Here's a couple pics with my new halo lights with the body on.

    I also use the 3m double sided tape.
    If its the one body shops uses then it should be good.

    Greased lightening works good or oven cleaner. All you have to do is let them soak for a little bit.

    Not sure how this happened But I managed to bend my cvd, but no damage to my traxxas aluminum pushrod or toelink. Which I was glad since I just installed my toelinks. So gonna order a couple of the replacement shafts tomorrow.

    Don't have the part number for just the replacement shaft handy do you? Been looking and havent been able to find them. Saw them awhile back but of course I didn't write it down. Thanks.

    Probably a side impact or cartwheel? Can also happen with loose pivot balls.
    Check if they stick out too much, the dogbone can then slide out too far and hit the drivecup on re-entry when the suspension articulates. It's not a problem with the plastic shafts, but the CVDs are somewhat prone to this.

    Part No is TRA7153 for the dogbone only.

    Well it finally happened, my stock servo finally gave out. And of course it hapened just two packs after I through my CC 5700kv big block in. And pictures will come for that as soon as my new chassis comes in, not realy happy with the way everything sits....

    The only thing I hate is that I have a servo on order, but who knows when that will be here...So prob will settle for the hitech servo.....I'll prob just end up grabbing a 5085mg.

    And all this had to happen the first run we had my buddies go pro out that he just got. WE got one video yesterday but started getting to dark after i got out of work. So hoping this next weekend we will get some video. but first one worked out pretty good with the mounting plate i made for his 1/16th summit..

    Thats ace mate, you've made my decision easy I'm building a merv with raptor body. I just brought a used mini slash but wasnt sure to build a mini ver of my slash or mini ver of my revo since I'm getting a raptor body for the 3.3 and they do a 16th scale. Simples.

    Well went to my lhs this weekend and picked up a hi-tech 5085mg. Got it installed but no chance to run it yet. Now just wanna find a dif horn for it, not really liking the ones that come with. Kinds seem it'll break easy.

    LOSA99038 its the hitec servo arm for the Losi 1/10 comp crawler. You do have to cut the servo guard a bit for this one on a 5085.

    Thanks guys.

    Well so much for the clean digger body, as it rides the roof across my works black top. lol..
    Took it out for two packs and needless to say i broke two parts today. I ripped out a rear tie rod end which was easily fixed well now i just snapped the other ear off of my steering saver.
    Who has experience with the HR steering saver? Thought i remember someone not liking it but that was alittle while ago. If anything i'll just pick up a stock replacement...

    Stick with stock!
    If it was aluminum you probably would have ruined your servo

    Yea true and possible bent tie rod.lol. It was the ear where the tie rod screws into that snapped on me. But that's what you get with a big block. lol but man it's a blast to drive.

    I just put a order in for 2 stock savers and a servo arm. so untill next week the diggermerv is down for a few days. so guess it's just nitro for tomorrow. lol. seeing this is prob the last nice weekend up here in ohio actualy is 63 up here today...
    Just have to retune my MMP before than. need alittle less brake and prob bump up the punch control alittle too.
    Oh and actually gonna finally get around and order up a t-bone set up....

    Well my aluminum servo horn finally came in. Did some chopping to it. I cut off the farthest out screw hole than sanded down also sanded down the top side. That made it so I didn't have to trim to much off my servo guard. But here's some pics.
