  1. Traxxas Stampede and Rustler Paddles

    I looked on the web to find sizes for these tires, but no luck.
    I tried Traxxas support but the sizes are not published by Traxxas for some reason.
    I bought a pair of each to compare. I knew the...

    I would check the pinion. If the front side of the pinion teeth get worn, it changes the pitch of the gear teeth.
    Take a real close look at it, from the end, and see if your teeth are still perfect...

    Well the pan shown above is gone. Mostly I make them to be disposable.
    They are glued on with RTV to stiffen the whole rig so taking them off for repairs usually hurts them.

    I love the no foam tires like these. I drill holes and then screw 3/8 screws out through the tire.
    The spikes work great on ice and the deep lugs of the tire handle a bit of snow very well.

    I usually run an E-Maxx body on the extended chassis to fit the +2 1/2" of wheelbase.
    The Slash, or in this case HPI SC, bodies fit too, More or less. I hack the fenders BIGTIME!

    Depending on the grinding bit, it may be too rough and/or melt it. I like the by hand approach.

    I've been racing a lot of Slash and Rustler and tangling tires,
    so I decided to put on some fenders.

    Blinking green is usually no radio/recvr link or calibration issues.
    Did you bind the new receiver to the radio?
    If not, bind it, then calibrate again.

    Only the rear will be wider. I like the Stampede rear arms on a Slash!
    The front width is the same. The bodymounts are the same.
    You may need the Slash steering links if not alreadt on the...

    It may very well be braking.
    If the neutral position is off, the ESC may think it's in braking position.
    Best to recalibrate the radio to the ESC if there is ever any doubt!

    It's most likely the idler gear inside the gearbox. Possibly the top shaft or differential but idlers tend to go.
