    I went back to stock rockers. Aluminum looks nice but the threads don't hold up if you take them off a few times

    my rear left rocker thread for the shock is completely shot. I'm pretty upset that's $20 down the drain. Gets me kinda curious about the STRC rockers. These seemed to have soft metal or something. I sent a message to the ebayer I bought them from to see if I can get a replacement or a refund because this is total frustrating. I don't got money to throw around on stuff that doesn't work.

    Side Note: The red shock bodies look sweet.

    I also think the design of the hot racing rockers puts great stress on the thread, this should be better with the STRC rockers as these have the same design as stock, with an upper and lower hole to hold the pushrod/shock. But i cannot find them in stock, and STRC won't reply to my e-mails. Anyone knows how to contact STRC?

    They replied to my emails when I had questions about the LCG chassis. Maybe they have a ton of emails.

    For now you can run a longer bolt with a nut to get by

    I can't even get the screw through the rocker. Last time I tried it got stuck and I had to use pliers to get it out.

    Another spur gear down I can't imagine it being the gear mesh now. I moved like 5 feet and all the teeth we're flattened...

    check the bearing in there? maybe replace it perhaps the bearing that goes on the spur. something might be binding on there i'm thinking

    I actually think its the gear cover. There is some damage on the inside of it. Is it possible to over tighten the slipper to where it will rub?

    that could be too, make sure the screws are tightened down to prevent the motor from moving under hard accel or braking.

    Well the Red Tie Bars I ordered finally came in. I payed for expedited from LiquidRc and asked for a shipping refund and they refunded the total amount so I got them for free! I'm not going to the hobby shop until Saturday so no running until then. I must say the red tie bars look awesome, was kinda getting annoyed by having a red theme and then you look at the bumpers and see blue behind them.

    Well got my suspension back to the way I like it. I took the rocker off the post and screwed in the push rod then the shock and put it back on the post. guess that's the way to do it now. I also just noticed one of my shock caps is cracked. Whats a good upgrade option?

    There isn't one, trust me. I've tried HR, STRC and New Era shock caps. They all suck, they all leak. Go with Traxxas plastic caps.

    Nice! What do you think of the servo? A lot better than stock?
    Also, where did you get the red antenna nut?

    Edit: and you need to dye your chassis!

    I haven't got much time to test out the servo but it was working well when it was running. Traxxas makes a red crimp nut and Dubro makes a red antenna tube that you cut down to fit the length of the stock antenna tube. I plan on dying a brand new chassis in the future but im good with this one for now.

    I would recommend it, takes stress off the ESC.

    Don't buy these rockers stick to stock. Anyways went to the lhs and they only had a 56 spur and 20 pinion so I got those.

    Okay so I ran it again all was well except I think the switch kept turning off and on for me. Like i would go it would stop working and then it would go through the start up cycle again. Also I saw some smoking coming out of the outerwears and the gears look fine so im guessing the slipper is too lose, it also wouldn't wheelie right before that so it has to be the problem. I'm REALLY unimpressed with the outerwears. My ESC hasn't fried yet but there is a significant amount of water getting into the chassis. This really makes me want to get a MM@ just to be safe.

    Hmmm, thats kinda strange actually. Ive driven through snow without taking into account that the MM is not waterproof. 45 min later when i take the outwears off i can only spot a few drips of water.

    Also driven through long and wet grass, and some puddles. No problem at all . I'm not leaving without it!

    I'm making sure its on tight but when I take it off it looks like it got sprayed except the ESC isn't touched it still worries me.
