    I like it. I am curious about the gear reduction.
    Did you keep the stock motor? How did you lock the diffs?

    I recently got a used Slash 4x4 and found the diffs were locked with JB Weld.
    I...

    You are dead right. There is a gap between the motor and clip on heat sink.
    Air is a great insulator and the less direct contact means less heat transfer.
    The evidence of the gap is the dirt around...

    This is an older version of that Integy cage on a Stampede VXL.
    I had to remove the side bits to accommodate the VXL mounting plate, rx and ESC.
    Maybe for the extra shocks too, don't remember. I...

    I found a picture of my old chains and they looked exactly like yours. 8 rows of chain with zipties.
    Only I used brass jack chain to save weight. The zip ties were to save weight and time/effort.

    Ive done this to split tread blocks by grinding a groove though them, creating more bite.
    Ive never outright took out the whole tread block. I'll be trying this with stock Slash tires.
    I think...

    Keep WD-40 away from brushed motors but other than that it's OK.
    I use a silicone lube usually as it doesn't grab dust in the summer.

    Remove batteries right away. Towel dry and let rest before...

  8. Traxxas Stampede and Rustler Paddles

    I looked on the web to find sizes for these tires, but no luck.
    I tried Traxxas support but the sizes are not published by Traxxas for some reason.
    I bought a pair of each to compare. I knew the...

    I see now. The Nitro rear tower is different, mounts different.
    I did find stampede 2WD rear towers, but in the $35-40 price range.
    Cheap like the front would have been nice...

    I have heavily modified rigs but I always keep one close to stock.
    That one with the black shell is great fun!

    I would check the pinion. If the front side of the pinion teeth get worn, it changes the pitch of the gear teeth.
    Take a real close look at it, from the end, and see if your teeth are still perfect...

    Well the pan shown above is gone. Mostly I make them to be disposable.
    They are glued on with RTV to stiffen the whole rig so taking them off for repairs usually hurts them.

    I love Stampede 2WD. I love to do stuff to them. They're so versatile.
    I've played with weight distribution, under belly trays and battery under the chassis, etc.
    This time, the goal was to...

    I love the no foam tires like these. I drill holes and then screw 3/8 screws out through the tire.
    The spikes work great on ice and the deep lugs of the tire handle a bit of snow very well.

    I usually run an E-Maxx body on the extended chassis to fit the +2 1/2" of wheelbase.
    The Slash, or in this case HPI SC, bodies fit too, More or less. I hack the fenders BIGTIME!

    The lastest Stampede

    Just something for the lonely Stampede forum.
    I've been racing a lot of Slash and Rustler and tangling tires,
    so I decided to put on some fenders.

    Blinking green is usually no radio/recvr link or calibration issues.
    Did you bind the new receiver to the radio?
    If not, bind it, then calibrate again.

    Only the rear will be wider. I like the Stampede rear arms on a Slash!
    The front width is the same. The bodymounts are the same.
    You may need the Slash steering links if not alreadt on the...
