    Doesn't Traxxas include a tool for that exact purpose? It is just a flat piece of metal with a slot in it and you use it for prying the hexes off.

    Definitely, it's way easier for a company to make a cheap motor than a cheap ESC. I have a "nicer" 1/10 scale motor on my brothers Rally but it is ran off a $25 ESC and it is terrible, the motor...

    I would be careful if I were you, using coverings over the electronics sounds good in practice (it keeps all of the dust out), but in reality it causes a lot of heat to build up underneath. Even if...

    They will most likely fry if you overvolt them, or at least lose a lot of life. I wouldn't recommend it.

    The best way to tell is by using a DC regulated power supply, then slowly cranking up the voltage until the light turns on. If you have some cheapo emitters then 3-6 volt is a safe bet, but if you...

    1.8 Amps is he max current the LED can take, though you will definitely want to run it under that maybe 1 Amp. Now the big question would be if you want to run the LED alone, in series or in...

    I can check the datasheet on the LED but you will have to measure the current supplied by the traxxas power supply.

    I have several Traxxas related 3D models in Autocad (Trx-4 and E-revo accessories) that would probably be cool prints. The question is, can you even use Autocad for 3D printing?

    They might have arrows molded into the plastic somewhere that indicates which orientation they go in.

    Before you buy anything just check your spur and pinion gear, My Trx-4 does the same thing and it's just because the spur is worn in a way that it clicks when throttle is applied, but there has to be...

    It looks good man! I run the Badlands MX38 on my E-revo and they seem to have a pretty big sidewall (for a basher).

    Good luck waiting for those to go bald, I run my Prolines pretty hard on road...

    I don't know if that would've actually fried the ESC unless switching it between LiPo and NiMH physically changes the circuitry. The LiPo mode just adds a LVC nothing else really.

    You're fine, it was more of my bad. From what I've seen on these forums people tend to ignore the rules when it comes to non-Traxxas products being promoted (the admins are not to keen on such...

    Sorry I was merely informing the OP of the rules in case he had not seen them before, I know that he is new to the forums such as I a few months back. My intentions were not to disrupt the thread but...

    Thanks for correcting me, I stated that off of my understanding of the rules. It was more of a heads up just in case, not necessarily an order to follow the guidelines. I am still learning as...

    In terms of upgrades, I compiled this list a while ago in hopes that I can help someone decide what purchases they would like to make to improve their Traxxas vehicle.

    It really depends on what...

    I don't know about 3D printers but I will say that you might get this thread taken down for violating forum Guidelines. Though Traxxas Alley is meant for off topic conversations, it is stated that...

    More powerful and higher capacity batteries are certainly on their way into the RC market, along with stronger motors, longer range transmitters, stronger plastics, and better ESCs (just to name a...

    Proline makes some really quality wheels and tires, but they are not cheap.

    The Summit is a pretty common choice amongst snow lovers, It has large wheels and really good ground clearance so it has no problem powering through any powder.

    Yes, the power that is normally supplied to the servo via the receiver is not enough for more powerful servos like the one that you got. The BEC basically plugs into the ESC which allows it to get...

    Maybe it is getting in from somewhere else, I don't really have a Maxx so I don't know what possible openings there are.

    I used to own the Blast and it was pretty fun. It pretty easily gets up on plane and cruises, I'd say the top speed is around 15-20mph but you can look up youtube videos and see for yourself. I would...
