    I removed the shims, but it's still binding. It's kinda odd, it only binds in a certain spot in the rotation. It's very free for part of the rotation but then binds up. It's not terrible, but it...

    This got delayed due to some other projects, but last night I put the diffs back together and such. However, the transmission doesn't seem to fit together completely anymore. If I tighten it closed...

    Here is a better picture showing the difference. The pede gears are on the left, original gears on the right. You can see the "spacer" deal I'm talking about more clearly here, as well as how the...

    So I know this thread is really old, but yesterday the "driver's side" yoke on my Sledge finally bit it after 20 something years. I've had a Nitro pede transmission for a while just in case, so I...

    I'm ok with that. I have a lathe/mill/etc. so if I feel squirrely enough I may just make a set of milled aluminum or steel stub axles too, lol.

    I haven't been able to find any diff cases at all, just the whole transmission :( I got a nitro stampede transmission on ebay for $15 shipped. Maybe the diff case is inside that?

    Ok cool, so from what I can tell, the differential case and transmission case are all one piece/the same part, correct?

    Thanks for your help with this.

    I just jacked up the steering servo on my sledge yesterday. Gotta find a replacement. Hopefully the modern metal geared stuff will work with it.

    I just got the new body in. It looks to be a bit thicker than the original. I'll have to get the calipers out when I get home to see the difference. Seems like it will be a fun project.

    EDIT:...

    I'll definitely be interested to see how a new motor does... I ended up getting a Parma Chevy 1500 body. It looks pretty similar to the stock sledge body so I think it'll be a good replacement :) I...

    Oh cool. I was debating between a Raptor and a Nissan Titan body. My real truck is a Hardbody so I was hoping to find one of those, but no luck :(

    2.2 is correct. I've pretty much worn the...

    Interesting, so you've not experienced any cracking at the location of the notches you've made in the past?

    Also, thanks for the body info. I plan to snag a body, a 12T Titan, and a XL-5 to keep...

    One thing I did have to do was shave some of the plastic off of the endcap of the battery (where the wires come out). Probably not the best thing to have to do, but it was the only way to make it...

    Got the rear camber all sorted out so it's nice and level. The front still has some positive camber and a little toe out I need to work out of it. At speed it gets pretty sketchy. I did flip it...

    Yeah I'm definitely not planning to romp it real hard. I'd just like to get it running again, preferably not on old NiCd batteries :P Once I get this one running and play with it for a while I'll...
