    What is that on the piston? Piece of an O-ring?

    IMHO If the bearings and carb are good I would probably go with a new piston/sleeve. They are fairly cheap ($40 retail). If upgrading I would...

    Let us know how the foam works out and what type. Looked at their site and it looks like you can get foam already cut in circles. That would save a lot of cutting.

    If you want to run your MOD 1 spur gear you would need to stay with a MOD 1 pinion. MOD 1 and MOD 1.5 are different gear pitches.

    Check to make sure the ESC is not in RACE or TRAINING mode or something stuck under the on/off esc button. It's possible as the TRX4 is a reverse rotation setup.

    That upgrade kit would work great. It gets rid of the slipper pegs and is a much better setup. It's a revo-spec slipper and so much easier to use.
    As for a fail safe I have never used the Optidrive...

    You could try the cigarette lighter plug. Most automotive 12v power points are fused at 15amps (along with the heavier rated wiring). If the charger needs more than that, I would think that 15amp...

    I was going to cut of the small protrusions near the mounting holes and drill out the holes slightly so a screw can slid through the holes into the chassis.

    I'm not sure with the Pro.15 engine. I never used one. I did have trouble when I first started out with my 2.5 T-Maxx. My local hobby shop would keep giving me different glow plugs when my original...

    I'm concerned about being lean also. Trying to get max power or tuning the needles for wheelie action is a quick way to run lean.

    I'm hoping during break-in the carb setting were at the rich...

    Fuel that has been left out or not sealed goes bad. The fuel ingredients start to evaporate leaving extra oil and it also absorbs moisture from the air. Old fuel and old/new mixed fuel will give you...

    I think they are talking about cut to size high density cushion foam. You can get some foam in different thicknesses and then you can cut out a complete piece. I was thinking of getting some for an...

    When changing glow plugs, going from one manufacturer to another make sure to check the engine tune. Especially going from one heat range to another as it will be different.

    How is the engine tune?
    Running lean can cause a glow plug to go bad. A leaking exhaust can cause lean issues. (exhaust coupler,fuel tank lid)
    You can also try OS plugs if you want. I use LC4...

    You would need to readjust the linkages for the new "neutral" position of the servo. Because you can't adjust with the radio you need to adjust the linkages. Try to install the servo horn as close as...

    I wonder how many steering parts (in any vehicle) this servo will break because of forgetting to set end points. :eek:

    Or in general? LOL

    There is something else going on if it takes that long. Engine condition and tune (carb settings) are the two biggest things that would affect starting. I also start mine on a block of wood with the...

    I felt the Revo held up better than the T-Maxx. With the T-Maxx I needed to upgrade the plastic bulkheads. Anytime I hit something them seemed always to break.

    Either one is still fun!

    I'm not sure what Transmitter you have, but some of the TQ transmitters only had steering trim.

    You might (should) be able to adjust the linkage (brake and throttle) to work correctly instead of...

    I measured the spline diameter of the Traxxas 2085 servo at around 7.7mm. The standard servos use a smaller diameter spline measured around 5.9mm.

    LOL! That "waiting" didn't take long.
    After having one of their servos first hand (DS470), they are high quality. You won't be disappointed.

    Without knowing what ESC and motor you are using we can only guess. As noted by RCWilly the TRX-4 uses a reverse rotation motor setup.

    Does it do it if you turn it the other way?

    You might need to adjust the servo endpoints.

    The carbon build up is probably normal. During break in of an engine it's run rich. Besides burning more fuel it's burning more oil with the fuel. It's not uncommon for a glow plug to go bad during...

    You can either get the Traxxas HD spring #5344X or some have installed a small washer as a shim to compress the stock spring slightly instead.

    The stock linkage will work. You would only remove...
