    Do you do anything to the ports on the receiver or do you leave them open? I usually don't have to worry about waterproofing what's in my receiver boxes, but this one leaves me stumped because of how...

    Yeah, I might use conformal coating on this receiver and maybe even 3d print up a new box. I just wanted to see what others do before I commit to anything.
  3. Waterproofing third-party receivers?

    I picked up two Tetons and want to add my Flysky FS-BS6 radio to at least one of them. I noticed that the receiver box is not really sealed - it's wide open on the bottom and the only reason why it's...

    Tried white lithium grease in one of my Ttx4's and it looked dry when it came down to tearing it apart for maintenance.

    Hobby shops make it expensive. I've probably saved at least thousand dollars over the last two years buying stuff from ebay, banggood, asiatees, etc.

  6. Any way to keep using Traxxas telemetry while using a third party radio?

    I love having telemetry on my Slash 4x4 Platinum, but I really prefer my flysky fs-gt5 radio to the TQI radio.

    Is there any way to keep using the traxxas telemetry while still controlling the car...

    I thought breaking an axle on a crawler was impossible... Until my son broke one on his TRX-4 [emoji23] But a hex nut? A metal one? Never seen that before!

    For sure, I get that, my son does not. [emoji23]

    I do have a feeling that the added grease everywhere is creating more internal resistance, which is probably why my truck never has great run times.

    Thanks for the info Zedora. Yeah, it seems to sound worse than it actually is (no broken parts)! I think new springs and shock oil will be my first mods to try.

    Prevent bottoming out during jumps

    So I've been taking my Slash 4x4 to the local skate park, and while it does some awesome jumps, I do hearing it bottoming out way too often for my comfort.

    Another vote for Bandito's!

    But make sure if you do run these that it's warm/hot outside. If the ground is too cool, these act like drift tires :D

    I'm looking to order some TRX-4 shocks (not for my TRX-4 but for an SCX10 :lol:) and I noticed that Traxxas offers both the 8260 ("Silver aluminum") shocks and the 8260X, which are Hard-Anodized...

    I have a defender and my son has a tactical, but he wants to be able to hang scale accessories off the body like I do.
