    I like where you're going with this, as I am personally a fan of scale performance. I also like weird ideas because if it's your money getting spent, you should get to do whatever you like. But I see...

    Never tried that method. I usually drill the head off, which allows me to remove whichever part the screw was holding on.

    After the part is removed, I use Vise Grips to grab the remaining, exposed...

    Comparing the failing side to the good side would probably answer your question. It'd be ideal to compare it to a new one, but the good (used) one will probably work. Compare the droop stops that...

    As referenced in b-mack's post, the lower A-arms have an integrated droop stop. It's located on the trailing edge of the front pivot point. I'm just looking at the exploded view to confirm this, as...

    You might be able to use the pin that holds the stock CVDs together in that same location to hold the Hot Racing CVDs together. Or maybe even a spare drive pin from the rear axle if you have one.

    Unfortunately those are the only two lexan bodies currently in production for the UDR. Now you could use the wheelbase (420mm) and track width (345mm) to find some other body that will fit, but it'll...

    Congratulations on finding one in stock. Especially with Xmas coming up, I think they'll become even harder to find. Last Xmas (2019) my LHS sold 15 of them in December alone. Fortunately, mine was...

    Thanks. Once they're masked off, its a really easy paintjob. If you're going to do it, use a plastic model pray paint like Testors, or even Tamiya TS. The Tamiya PS (lexan spray) doesn't adhere well...

    Thanks for the answers on what / how you drive.

    Now, 25 foot jumps with the UDR, even landing on soft sand is pushing the truck's limits in my opinion. And with 6S power, those limits are...

    What breaks?

    Is it the same part over and over, or different parts?

    What batteries are you using, where are you driving it, and how do you drive (massive jumps, low speed on flat terrain...)?...

    Thanks. I'm glad it wasn't $100 wasted on an "upgrade" that makes my truck heavier for no good reason. It actually solves a problem, so I'm happy with it.

    And yes, you can still run the open diff...

    Well, my wife took 2 of the 5 kids out today, leaving me about 30 minutes in which I disassembled the axle housing and... good news! It's clean.

    I've run about 10-15 packs since it's last...

    Thanks. I probably won't know until next weekend. I spent about 3 hours disassembling the truck this last weekend, and between a wife, 5 kids and a job I probably won't look into the axle until my...

    Agreed. I'd love to make my UDR into the trophy truck that the Ram 1500 in my driveway will never be. I'd happily settle for a 1/7 scale version.

    I like to watch videos of the X Maxx, but I'll never own one. It's just not my style. I prefer realistic looks and realistic performance, and the monster bashers just don't check either of those...

    I've found HR's stuff to be about 50 / 50. Half of the time their parts are a real upgrade which benefits...

    I installed a Savox 1256-TG which is faster and has almost double the torque over the stock steering servo at 6v.

    I noticed no difference in performance. It might have to do with the TSM taking...

    In San Diego, CA, even used UDRs only remain available for a few days before being sold at almost new prices.

    They're apparently a tough vehicle to get ahold of right now.
