    I changed mine to use those as well. Now I get full range of motion at the wheel without the arm rubbing the center shaft. Will see how it does this weekend. The last time I drove it with the EPA's...

    Well, 1M in the new diff is definitely harder to turn in my hands than the 1M in the smaller diff. I did take it apart to see how full it was, was pretty good. I'm glad I did though as 3 out of the 4...

    Yeah, I thought it was from a rock or something. Never thought about the stupid arm rubbing on it and that I was causing the problem. Wasn't until recently that someone mentioned it on their truck...

    If you want to make your own splitter, get ones with silicone wires. They don't crack over time like the standard ones:

    The 3670 should work pretty good for you. I ran a hobbystar 3665 3100kv in mine for a bit, it did better, but I wanted a bit more out of it and ended up with the 1/8th scale stuff.

    I only ran 3S since then, so wasn't sure how it did on 2S. The motor got hot and would cause the esc to shut down pretty easily even with "mild" gearing running at my skate park.

    I hope they work for you. Something about trusting only a bit of double sided tape makes me question how well they would hold up on their own. Adding it like I did and still using the stock hold down...

    I ran the 3800kv on my stampede for a bit on 3S, but I broke the motor shaft off, it was a 1/8" version. I ran it on 2S for a long time with the castle sct sv3 esc and it did fine. I did have a motor...

    Do you have an extra cap pack on any of your vehicles? That will cause it to happen more than what's typical. The max5/6 both have a resistor built in to avoid that. If you want to get away from the...

    It's fun, but if I hadn't already had the jato in nitro form, I wouldn't have bothered with it. If RPM made front/rear towers, then I'd have a different opinion. As it is, I break rear towers...

    My body has gotten totally trashed. I'm not 100% sure I want to throw another jato body on it as the shape allows the rear body mounts to easily get ground off. So, while I figure out what I want to...

    I don't maintain my bearings really. Usually by the time they feel gritty or dried out, they are worn and I just replace them as needed.

    No, that's for a 40-42mm diameter motor. You need something for a 36mm.

    My crawler still looks like new... then again, I've never taken it outside. I just setup pillows and whatnot in the house when I'm bored.

    It's just an scx24. :)

    It will make the steering seem a bit slower as well. The closer to the shaft you get, the less movement there is and the slower it seems, but the throw will shorten and torque will increase.

    I'm not sure what ESC you have, but you will need the esc calibrating instructions specific to the esc. The process calibrates the esc to the receiver so it knows what full throttle/idle/brake are.

    You can try using the hole closest to the servo's output shaft. That will increase torque, but also shorten the effective throw of the servo. This one has a hole pretty close to the output shaft, you...
