    Still having problems. Got the trans and diff cleaned up and checked, put some fresh grease in both and put everything back together. Took it for a test run with the same problems. I swapped back...

    The 2wd was the whole reason I wanted a 4x4. I've beat the heck out of my 2wd, and up until a couple weeks ago it was still running great. Now, I'm having issues with it making this terrible...

    The lcg definetly plants the truck down and makes it easier to turn at higher speeds. I also like that it distributes the weight of the electronics more evenly across the chassis instead of having...

    The Traxxas 2s lipo batteries are pretty good; definetly give you more run time and speed out of it. Just watch your motor temps; lipos can overheat a brushed motor pretty quick.

    Also, the...

    Just an update:. I pulled the diff apart yesterday and cleaned it up. None of the gears seemed damaged, but I did find a bearing that was worn pretty badly. The seal on one side was worn down to...

    Yeah, I'm working in the wheel slop. She's been run really hard over the last year, so she's kinda beat up. It's my "Let's go way too fast and do stupid stuff" car. The steering just needs to be...

    I checked it when I swapped out the spur, but it may be worth another look. It's a fairly new HR clutch, but that doesn't mean there isn't something off kilter with it. I'll try to repost the video...

    Did I say pinion? I meant spur. It's a plastic spur and steel pinion. My bad. And I didn't put Loctite on the plastic, just on the mounting screws holding the motor in place. Sorry, I typed that...

    Okay, so I thought I had everything figured out. I swapped the steel pinion for a plastic one that's the same size and pitch (86t/48p), put some Loctite on the motor mounts and tightened them up,...

    Yeppers, they are both 48 pitch.

    I have several different sizes of plastic spurs, so I'll have to see if I have one that's the right size. At least it's so far just $5 pinion gears instead of something more expensive.

    I've got the slipper set pretty good; never had any issues with it. I'll tinker with it this weekend and see if I can track down the problem. I think it's the motor mounts vibrating loose, but not...

    Hmm. May have to do a little shopping and see if I can find a hardened one in the right size, then. That may be part of the problem. Gonna try getting the motor mount screws tightened up this...

    The 19t pinion gears I have are Traxxas part #2419. I can't find anything that says what material they are.

    Those are probably the only two screws on the entire rustler that DONT have blue Loctite on them. I love that stuff....

    I have noticed that the screws holding my motor in it's mount are constantly getting loose, so I kind of wonder if the motor is vibrating loose and mashing my gears together.... Anyone know if I can...

    Hey!

    So my partner and I just got a 2wd vxl slash, and we are both really impressed with it. We've been in the hobby for a little over a year, and have no regrets over the money we've blown on...

    The first gear that got eaten was (I think) a Traxxas gear (steel?) And the second pinion that got eaten was one I bought on amazon, and it wasn't stated what material they were. I'm willing to...
  21. This is Trixie. She eats pinion gears.

    So, before I go on, yes, I name my rc cars. Yes, they deserve to have names. Yes, I may be crazy.

    But anyway. I've had my 2wd rustler for quite a while, and love her to death. She's a solid...

    Have you tried dialing your camber and steering arms in? Sometimes they can get jiggled loose and do all sorts of crazy stuff. My 2wd rustler has to be adjusted every few runs, as the camber gets...

    The brushless motor makes a huge difference. I drove my friend's brushed slash yesterday, and was shocked at how slow it felt. The brushless motor system will last a lot longer than a brushed...

    We're usually pretty cognizant of our motor temps and don't do a ton of speed runs or anything, so I think I can manage it. I went ahead and ordered one for my rustler and my partner's new VXL slash...

    Are the chassis covers worth it, though? Do they cause any other problems such as overheating or such?
