What do I need to do for more traction. I have trencher x tires and sand paddles because I bash more than
What kind of surface are you running on?
Sand, loose dirt and I climb with it
Hmmm, ok. Have you thought about using monster truck tires? There're twice as wide.
The trenchers and paddles bite but its like not all my slayer pros power is getting to the
Ground like it should
So, you want more power/better power delivery?The trenchers and paddles bite but its like not all my slayer pros power is getting to the
Ground like it should
More power to the ground. Like when I'm in sand not all 4 tires
Dont have equal power so it Boggs down a lot and dosnt climb
very well. I just got into nitro bout 4 months ago so I don't know a
Center diff and upgraded slipper should help out
But if I get the center diff kit won't I half to relocate my break?
You will need to buy the rear brake kit. The front disk will stay where it is at and then the rear kit goes on the back side of the trans.
What's y'all's take on diff oil for loose terrain like I'm running?
Since your running in sand, I would almost say just stick in a diff locker spool... But, do you use you Slayer in only sand, or other surfaces too?What's y'all's take on diff oil for loose terrain like I'm running?
+1 on rear diff spool. I have one in my slayer pro, I run on alot of loose surfaces and I love the way mine performs. And If you do some running on the street the slayer pro drifts pretty good with the rear spool in...
For tires I run 1/8 duratrax lock out tires, have lasted almost two summers for me. And give some great traction in loose dirt, not sure how'd they handle in sand..
Paddles great for sand, but stink for other offroad conditions... A set of Trenchers or some decent MT tires like MaxxMashers, Losi Zombies will really stick well in most all offroad and onroad conditions...
Also, if your rear suspension is too stiff or you have too thick an oil, the rebound speed of your shocks will be too slow to keep the wheels attached to the ground when you are moving. Spinning out easy when applying power on a stright run offroad is a sure sign your suspension might need tuning for your purpose...
Rule of thumb, more firm the sring the thicker the oil. If your ride is bouncy go to a less firm spring or a thicker oil....
Also use the preload spacers for ride height adjustment, not to try to firm up the ride, that's just a side affect not the purpose.
