    1. Its transformation
    2. Been thru crashes including getting run over by a 1:1 car and still on the same chassis
    3. It was my template to copy 325mm wb xo-1 GT8
    4. Used it as a donor from time to time
    5. The most money I have well spent on
    Hmmm, Why is it I feel this way about all my things, big or small....?

    Got me something new to me MM2. Bought it from our fellow member here, slightly used and settings are still untouched. This is my first MM2 and to all MM2 owners out there, I have a question......when you plug it into your usb programming, do you only see 3 firmware options available (1.39, 1.45beta, 1.46)? the old ones MM v1/v2 gives me 5 or 6 firmware version options.

    Trying to solder a traxxas connector with my cheapo harbor freight pencil solder and end up messing it up lol, now I have to cut the wire a little bit shorter for another clean ends. feed up with this cheapo solder so I order a Hakko FX888D, waited this long and now I finally have a soldering station to play with

    I'm sporting the new trakpower tk955, its 60w's but I never need or set it over 750f.
    It holds the temp within 1.8 degrees f of the set temp, it makes me wonder how I got buy with my old 40w weller for so long.

    My LHS uses trakpower and it sure gets the job done, I just don't want to depend on them everytime I need to get anything soldered

    Here's my new toy
    Your in for a new dimension in the soldering category.
    If I knew what a difference there was I'd have purchased my Track Power two years ago.
    You'll be soldering everything you can for a couple days,lol.

    I suck at soldering traxxas connectors lol so I order some Castle Polarized Bullet Connectors enough to change all my TRX connectors. I can do easy with bullet connectors but my problem with trx is when trying to melt the solder together, I couldn't seem to get it to melt and when I get it to melt only one side and wont stick together.

    The yellow wheels look great on there! It's starting to cool off enough to run these without constantly checking temps now too.

    Your welcome but I have to warn you grp stand shorter than sweep so you need to adjust your ride height.

    Update me after you run some more packs through on the wear with the GRP's, I might pick up a set in the same compound if our local mountains finally get some snow so I can get back to work and get the money for it.

    Nice solder station Humay!

    I have a Weller station unit, but quite honestly I like using my vintage Weller gun for the instantaneous heat and high output. It suits my soldering style, in and out in a blink of an eye. Been doing it like that for decades

    Thanks ViperZ, I've been wanting a soldering station for a long time and now its time for me to have one. I actually have a weller soldering gun too, the one with a light that turns on as you pull the trigger lol, puts out heat fast but I don't know why I can't melt them when trying to bond it together.

    I'm battling with the same issue, I hate pulling parts from one for the other, its why my build has been going so slow.
    I've been spending a lot of time and cash on my scx10, the scaler thing is more fun then I thought it would be.
    I picked up a cc 10amp bec for the GT8, think I'm going savox instead of specky on the servo this time.
    Nothing wrong with spectrum servos in fact their great, just trying something different, in fact hitec is also on the maybe list.
    Gun metal strc shock towers are on the list as well.
    Thing is by the time I but the towers, 43/13 hardened ring and pinions for the scx10 as well as four 2.2" method aluminum bead-locks with mudslingers there goes a few bucks to say the least.
    Hope Santa things I was very nice this year.
    Its a bit early but Happy Holidays to all!!!!
    God Bless!

    lol how did I miss your post? anyway with my first set GRP (white wheels) rated B1/B2 had plenty of run, I even do a few drifting with it and still have groove/thread left, proper balanced on keeps the tires wear evenly and the fact that I rotate it often too

    I don't know what it is about servo for I keep staying with stock 2075 ones, I can buy 3 2075 servos and keep the other 2 as back up but never consider going with a super fast/torque servo, I've watched youtube vids about high speed/torque servo but still not convinced by it, maybe seeing it and test it in person will change my mind and get one

    It is something to experience, I had to use a little expo while getting used to my first .08 speed unit.

    Oh...heck yes it makes a difference. Metal gear is more durable than what you are running. Plus the speed AND torque combination of some servos truly make a difference.

    My 4wd and 1/8 race rigs are all running 0.08 transits at 6v and my 2wd rigs are 0.07. I dropped to a faster and slightly less torque on the 2wd to allow me to better steer into and correct from drifts which inevitably happen with 2wd. Liked it enough i upgraded the 4wd. Then went with same when i added 1/8. Savox, model 1257 and 1258.

    Can be power hungry, but have never been an issue with my Traxxas or Hobby Wing escs.

    I need to get out of the hole and try something else , I mean with the stock servo I'm well satisfied with what I used it for speedruns and with the metal geared I did it made a whole lot of improvement, less noise/play.

    TBH I'm still using my stock servo with the glitch buster on and I can't really say what it does with a much more high powered servo. I bought my glitch buster in preparation with a much high torque/speed servo but then I saw 08kgrave mod with metal geared 2075, I backed off lol.
    BEC is probably a good choice in case you wanted to add lights, fans etc...

    I'm gonna get one and try it out. I have a slightly upgraded servo and a strc bell cranks and was having trouble getting my servo to center after I turn. I replaced the bell crank with a stock unit and I'm going to try the glitch buster ando hope that fixes the problem.

    Caps will work as long as you dont have a crazy hungry servo.
    I run one with my specky s6040 and I've never had any glitching or brown outs, it is however matted to a RX-8 esc.
    [IMG][/IMG]
    I run 10amp cc becs on everything else, the bec was only $19 ans the cap was $13.
    If you know what your doing you can get a resister from radio shack for a buck or two and make your own cap.

    I have a savox sw0231mg. I bought a glitch buster on ebay that a guy made. It was only $3.50 shipped. I've watched videos on how to make them but figured at that price it's worth a shot.

    You shouldn't have an issue with that servo, with the exception of a bit more torque the metal gears are the only real difference.
    A resister sure wont hurt anything tho.
