    One thing I do like is when parts like this are keyed, so that it could fit snugly...

    Ha! Yeah, I don’t know what I was thinking... in my head, I know everything is essentially brand new, but realistically, you’re just never going to get that much back.

    Thanks for the info! I was actually reading that the buyer can send you back a brick in the box, and as soon as tracking shows I’ve received it, the funds are released. Strange that the whole process...

    Thanks for that bit of info! I’m definitely NOT making any mods after sale. In fact, immediately after taking those pics, I meticulously wrapped and packed the entire box with as much packing paper...

    Cool. That’s what I’m hoping too. This is the listing (if my copy/paste skills are up to snuff)

    Quicrun 1080 mount

    I found a nice holding tray from a 3D printing company that I’ve purchased from on a number of occasions, always with great results and great customer support.

    I’ve never sold on eBay, but in doing a little...

    If you’re in the Castle settings for a SW3/4, mamba x, etc. they list “full crawler on” as 230% drag brake. The hobbywing just says 100%. Does anybody know what that’s all about?

    Did you alter any of the stock settings? The drag brake is item # 9, and 100% drag is option 9. I have one of these too, but haven’t installed it yet.

    Maybe it never really locks up... The castle...

    I live in New England, and have lots of experience in the snow. My opinion is that most RC’s aren’t really heavy enough to see a big benefit from studded tires in snow. Now if your talking about...

    On their website, they’re listing them as #18150/10132, and #18140/10130. I’m purely guessing here, but typically when a manufacturer does something like that, it’s not indicative of a redesign....

    Yeah, shapeways is a very cool place! They actually make some brass/metal parts too. I saw one that was a lower mount for the steering servo that looked pretty interesting.

    Only thing is, I don’t see how you can actually buy a finished version. It looks like you can only download a file to use on a 3D printer.
