New Rim idea coming Tuesday.
With 2 tire options.
1. A tire designed for the rim
2. Proline Trenchers which should hopefully fit this new rim.
So...I destroyed my diffs Sunday. Fried my servo on Monday and my brother did his rear diff and bulkhead in.
What servo should I try next?
What servo were you running? I've been running the hitech 5085 for bout a year with no issues.
I was running an imported metal geared servo. I've been looking into both the 5085MG and the 5086WP.
I just installed a 5086 this weekend. Install was fairly easy and this improvement over stock is noticeable at the first power up
Def let us know how you like them.....You don't have any extra HPI rims laying around do you? Was curious how they looked stretched on those rims.....
Well, Unfortunately it will be down for awhile with the servo and I just bought a new toy.
For my rim. HPI WR8. Offset isnt where I'd like but I think this will be fun. Wheel isnt glued and no foam in it yet.
My new toy. A Snap-On edition 1/10 E-Revo Brushless Edition. Used very lightly. Tool bags and stuff weren't open. Got it for an amazing price.

Need some help. Got a new servo for the lil guy and its not working well. I did all the chassis mods to fit a Hitec 5086WP. I hook it up and its very glitchy. My summit lights dim dramatically when turning. Sometimes when turning left it does nothing and i must continue to go center then left to get it to turn left. It's also gets quite warm. I caught it at 150 with my IR temp gun after constant back and forth for about 3 minutes.
My previous metal geared servo did this to me as well with the going left issues when it went. Cant remember if my temp 2080 did it before i stripped a gear in it.
Servos tend to do that when they draw more power then the ESC's BEC can put out. You may need an external BEC.
Could be an issue with his servo...
Whatever it is I just typed... could be wrong.
pinched wire? hope you figure it out. I've got an extra bec i never used lying around.
nice gold HPIs. I looked for those but you can't get them anymore.
