    I'm using the losi 10t wing and mount and a hyper 10t body. Then some SC tires and just some custom work to get it to fit. I'll post pictures later on to show what i've done so far


    Just my 2 cents

    So this is what i have into my truggy build so far. You can see the plates i made to sandwhich the shock tower for a mount and awesomely the lower mounting holes slightly squeeze in and actually hold the plates in place before you tighten them down so bonus on that. Then you can see the modified body mounts i have front and rear. These work for my rustler body i will let you know if they work for the truggy body when it gets here. And then running some bandlands SC tires i had on proline beadlocks. I will lower the truck when i head to the race track.





    Just my 2 cents

    Yesterday I fried vxl motor, broke splined driveshaft end and broke the shaft for the slipper clutch. Nice huh? Today I got a MMP for my 2400kv that I already had. Liquid taped it so hope it's waterproof now. Headed to LHS tomorrow for the shaft. I already have a big bone but no outdrives for it. Need to order those.

    Not sure. It was NEVER overheated and always maintained. The magnet inside literally exploded.

    Well. The next run broke a front driveshaft. (Please fix the driveshafts traxxas. I'm begging!) Ordered the rear mip axles on Saturday and ordered the front yesterday. MIPs at all four corners!

    I noticed I sheared a pin on my MIPs. Gave Matt a call and new ones are on their way! I installed the MMP and 2400 motor. Had to dremel and make a mount for the MMP. Still waiting on a few parts to get it back together. MMP sits up higher than I like. Hope it doesn't interfere with my gopro.

    I use a small piece of wood cut to size. I screwed into it from the bottom to secure it to the chassis. Industrial velcro and CA glue hold down the esc. It was just a tad to wide to tuck down between the motor and servo.

    Finally broke a shock top after a bad landing and can't figure put why I can't go in reverse. Every once and a while it will allow me to reverse but if it does then I can't go forwards for a minute then I can then can do reverse again...if I can't figure it out from a previous topic I'll be asking shortly.

    Took it to work to run, in what is now dry parking lot. Ran on 3s with the 17t pinion. I blew my co-workers away with how fast it runs. Some questions I got were: "What kind of gas does that run on?" "Holy crap is that thing fast, can I drive?" " Thats incredible, I need to go get one of those" and "How much does it cost to go that fast?" I think I gave the one guy the bug. Hopefully he'll pick one up for himself so he won't be bashing on mine...

    Managed to get my new 57 chevy truck body cut out. Now to fit it to mounts, i think its gonna take rear body mount front and back, prob lowered in back. LHS has the rear mount i'll get it tomorrow. Tire rub might be an issue on hard landings. Goin almost full rust treatment on this one. Second pic is my inspiration. Hey spennie, there is no better hobby and never grow up dude!!!

    It's a conductive paste that helps with drawing the heat away from the motor when used with the heatsink.......peace

    I changed out my chassis to the one I dremeled out to fit my tenshock motor. Also opened up the rear diff and found out it was leaking, so I refilled it.

    Here it is, my version of a barn racer. Really couldn't have turned out better as far as fit and finish. Pics barely do it justice, looks awesome in person.

    Hopefully that will stop your diff troubles be because you still are on stock motor mount and plastic bearing adapter could be flexing the slipper and causing trouble with the diff because these upgraded parts stop flex by quite a margin but I could be wrong but its an idea..........peace
