    You don't have to lubricate the spur and pinion gears.

    Setting the gear mesh is just one of those things; it just takes practice. The paper method generally works well, but can vary depending on...

    Rocketzx1 is correct, the term "big bore" came out many, many years ago. Back in the day, both plastic AND aluminum Traxxas shocks were smaller.

    Glad to hear you got it running, albeit away from you! Hopefully you get the rest sorted shortly and can drive it! :thumbup:

    Please be careful with runaway R/Cs, though! When I used to race, I...

    Interesting question. I don't have any specific numbers for you, but I feel like your observations are correct. The newer models are definitely wider than the original 3906 (pre-Wide Maxx...

    I'm in the "stick with plastic bulkheads" group, as well. Over the years, I have broken very few bulkheads. And even then, I'd take a broken bulkhead over a broken chassis any day. I've had great...

    How old is your 3906? Is it an original with the Traxxas ESC, or does it have the Novak EVX? Does it have the Wide Maxx suspension arms, or the original narrow arms?

    That said, I know MIP used to...

    I doubt that motor has seen much use, the comm. appears to be nice and uniform. As the comm. wears, it'll change shape (which is why you'd use a lathe to true it up again).

    Back in the day, these trucks didn't come with a slipper clutch; Traxxas later started including them for a good reason. As the others have stated, slipper clutches serve a purpose. Eliminating the...

    Welcome to the Traxxas forums! The body turned out great, especially for a first try!

    My first paint job was over 20yrs ago, and it turned out nothing like yours! I had tried to paint a Pro-Line...

    Looks good, I also like the clear bed. The truck reminds me of an old school monster truck! :cool:

    I've had great luck with Big Bore shocks. I've also had good luck with upgrading the stock Ultra Shocks with aluminum caps and TiN shock shafts. :)

    Personally, I think either the 2WD Stampede or Rustler platform would be great for a young driver to learn on. They're simple vehicles (relatively speaking), and there are a lot of upgrades available...

    Once you've smoked a motor, it's likely toast and will never perform the same again--even if you clean it out. It sounds like it's time for a new motor. You need to keep an eye on the temps and make...

    Yeah, the brush springs need to be fully seated. One of those definitely needs to be pushed down.

    As for timing, I'm pretty sure you want to advance it a little for it to be at 0. The pointy bit...

    Tires can make a big difference (larger, Stampede sized) in the Rustler's off-road abilities (you'd also have to adjust the gearing to compensate for the larger tires). That said, I'd wait till you...

    $300 is definitely a bit much. I bought one from Trinity around the time BL motors were gaining traction new for maybe half that.

    Negative timing is almost always going to be a bad thing,...

    Yeah the original diffs were not sealed and did use regular grease.

    Looking forward to seeing this project completed! :)

    That said, I would HIGHLY consider ditching that MSC. As you probably know, those things are horrible. I'm sure you could scrounge up an old ESC from...

    The biggest difference is obviously the chassis. You'll also need skid plates, a battery hold down, body mounts, tires & wheels, turnbuckles, a servo saver, appropriate gearing for the larger tires,...
