    I'm honored you added it to my thread.

    Thanks for the compliment on the old Ford.

    Spent the gift card my wife gave me for my birthday today.
    I'm following ViperZ's lead and bought a set of 1:8 buggy wheels and tires, they are Proline Split six wheels and Proline Badlands tires. Also grabbed the Traxxas 17mm hex adapters, Proline tire glue, tire bands to help mount them, all new wheel bearings, a set of RPM rear bearing carriers (I messed one up at my last outing), the Proline extended body mounts for my F-100 body and some 37.5 weight shock oil.
    Should make for a nice evening of work.

    And I just realized I need the MIP 17mm adaptors.... Part number:10115. Dang; now I wait...

    Nice additions Clint! Yeah the MIP's require their own 17mm adapters, which I'm not really fond of myself.... Be careful when you are tightening the wheels on them as the design can actually press the wheel hub up against the bearing introducing a side load. That's why the Bearing went on my Rally/GT8... Remember when I said I felt there was a bit of friction in the drive train? this was the problem. The Wheel nuts do not thread onto the hub itself, rather onto the 5mm axle acting like a press to the hub.

    I may try to modify a set of regular hubs where the wheel nut threads on to them. I think it should be easy, just drill and tap the hub for a few set screws and viola! That or drill some small center indents in the axles so the MIP setscrews are really anchored on the axle, and tightening the wheel nut does not press them inward.


    MIP 17mm Hubs

    Thanks for the info and pictures Bing. I was thinking about drilling and tapping two set screws on each on the Traxxas hubs as well, it would be easy to do; the hardest part would be the measuring so I drill the holes on the correct spots, I have a nice Starret calliper to take care of that.

    Being it's your profession, I figured you would have it cased. Let me know if you decide to do that, cause I have a set I'll bring over for you to be your pigeon... If you like

    You guys ever loose the set screw and the pins out of the MIPs at the output yoke? I have lost several on my Stampede 4x4 and my sons Summit. Figured out if you put a small piece of heat shrink tubing there it will hold the pins in. No more problems with that. It's real easy to cut off too when you need to access it. $3 fix that lasts a long time. I figured that out after having to replace the female end of the MIP a couple of times.

    ^^^ Not a bad plan, I have often worried about that being one of the weaker points of the MIP system. That and the open CV. I purchased a set of Stampede boots, that I tried stretching on them. it's not bad, but slightly tore one so I shelved it for now...

    I've had the carriers since day one; they are great; I ended up getting a piece of twine wrapped around the inside of the wheel and it messed up the bearing carrier and wrecked the outside bearing; so I'm changing it.

    The colors are Pactra Lime Ice and Rally Green.

    I haven't yet; but I do check them often; it mentioned it in the assembly instructions.
    Thats a good idea, I also use Loctite 242 (medium strength) on all my rotating bits and Loctite 222 (low strength) on all the non spinning bits.

    I use the red Loctite and still toss those pins out until this mod. I actually had a pin come halfway out and saw through the eye of one of the turnbuckles on the Stampede 4x4...

    That's pretty scary, I'll break out the heat shrink.

    So I went ahead and drilled my adaptors.
    I tapped the holes to accept 4mm set screws, there are two on each adaptor so they can seat against the flat spots on either side of my MIP axels, it went well; I'll be installing and testing them tomorrow.

    Agreed! Nice job Clint

    If only I had a drill press, I have the tap, I would do it myself

    Thanks all. Bing; don't you worry, if these work out; you're next.

    Well morning one of R&D is in the bag. The hex's worked flawlessly! I'm very happy with it so far.

    The Ford body on the other hand; not so much, for its first time out it took a beating an the box is all split and cracked.
    I'll be breaking out the Shoe Goo and drywall fiber tape soon.

    Clint, that thing looks beautiful! Go Riders!!

    That's crazy how banged up and shredded that got after one session

    Here is your next project then...



    A Proline C10 just like you were wanting. It is said to be for the Revo, but from what else I have read is it can be made to fi the Slash 4x4

    Okay, deal, I want the custom made hubs over these MIP ones

    I wasn't all that hard on it, I beat on the Bug bodies far more than what I dished out today. I think it's just all the right angles on the body.

    I love the badlands! They are my favorite tire for the moment as well.
    I didn't check the temps this time out.

    Never mind what I said. My son and I went out today and lost another pin right at the start! What is the secret to keeping these things in? It made a hole right through the heat shrink and came out! I use red thread lock and the heat shrink tubing on the outside and just keep losing them.

    I am not at all happy with these MIPs

    People's experience with the MIPS sure vary. One of our trucks used the blue gel that came with the cvds, the other is using red thread lock. After about 10 2s packs through each there has been no issue. And I'm regularly checking.

    I made sure that the threads were clean before I put the loctite on (cleaned with brake cleaner) and I made sure that the set screw was tightened against the flat spot on the pin.
    I'm going to check mine before I go out again.

    Come to find out the pin didn't come out, it broke on both sides of the shaft. It was still in place with the screw holding in the middle but both ends came out.

    Let a good friend of mine tear around the street with the Slash today; he ran it into his brand new car! The Bug was so funny looking I had to share it.
    Both cars are just fine; no damage.
