    Well, I got my Paraboard V3. I wanted to ask, I can use it to charge up to 4 - 2S lipos, can you also do a storage charge with that number?

    A ParaBoard causes the charger to see the four batteries as one large battery. It changes no capabilities of the charger. If your charger has a storage mode, the ParaBoard will not change that.

    Ok, cool. Looks like something might be broken or disconnected on the Stamp after running today. Steering on the right isn't working. Cleaned tonight but won't be able to work on it until at least tomorrow.

    Merry Christmas everyone and Happy Bashing!!!

    I got my Paraboard but the connector is wrong for my iCharger. It's the wrong size. Now I gotta try and find a different cable or adapter.

    What do you mean?

    http://www.progressiverc.com/catalog...12/image/2579/

    That picture shows a standard JST-XH balance port

    I'm sorry if that's incorrect, that is what i used to answer your question.

    What does the paraboard come with?

    Ya, if you look at the pic of the iCharger, it has 9 pins I see. The BuddyRC paraboard has 7 pins. If you look at the pic and zoom in, you can see 7 pins. Here it is: http://www.buddyrc.com/paraboard-v3-...connector.html. I was quite surprised by that. Now I need an adapter or something.

    Edit: I think I found what I needed. I emailed them to be sure: http://www.buddyrc.com/paraboard-bal...-for-208b.html

    Oh. I would just make sure its lined up and push it in.

    It will work fine. Keep the black wire in the negative slot.

    You can even trim the edge off the top keyed plastic if you want it to fit better.

    OR buy the $2 cable.

    Ya, support just replied with "trim off tab on the balance plug above the positive side and slide it all the way over to the negative side on the charger. Or you can get the balance board and it will work fine", so same thing.


    Thanks.

    Well, be patient with me. I need to identify a part and I am not good with the terminology, so here goes...

    I can steer to the left bug not right after hitting a pole. I checked and there is a small plastic part that connects the steering from both sides together. It's a simple little part but I can't find it. Anyone know what I am talking about?

    As always, any help appreciated.

    Bell crank. Is that what your talking about. Or servo horn comes off the servo.

    This is so frustrating because I don't know the names of any of these parts. Looking at the parts list and the exploded views gives me a headache! I tried to look online for some clear pictures of that area, but nothing detailed enough.

    There are the 2 arms that connect to the wheels that cause them to turn, in other words to steer. This part that broke is made of plastic and connects both of those rods together in the center, I think under the servo. It's about 2 inches long, has a hole at each end that a screw goes through to connect it to the steering arms. It's narrow and black.

    If I can, I will try to post a picture, but my camera bites.

    EDIT: I just looked at a video and the guy called it a "center arm". Does that sound right? If that's it, is it sold on it's own?

    Ok here's a few pics this one is the bottom of truck in it you'll see servo, servo horn, the linkage connecting the servo horn to the bell crank

    In the next pic you'll see the steer linkage or toe turnbuckle, camber link both also call turnbuckles and also where the steer linkage connects to the bell crank

    Last pic is kinda like first pic but more angled to see the bell crank

    Hope this helps
    Edit: here's one its aluminum but this pic shows the whole bell crank there's a piece that connects both sides on mine you can barly see the "S" it's under the front diff center shaft gear

    Lol I have the same thing on mine. I use picture trail to post now. I use to use tapatalk but some reason it's not allowing me to join this forum. There's also photobucket you can use

    I hate how I have to post pics now. Take a pic send it to pic trail then have to go into mailbox then have to add to my pic folder then I can go to URL of the pics in my box copy then paste here. Tapatalk was easy. Go to tapatalk go to what thread I want to send. And either I could take a pic then or pick one out of my phones pics add and send

    from what I have read so far it sounds like the center arm (the one with the S in the pic) and I believe that it comes with the bell crank assy. Am I correct Er33 or did you purchase your STRC one separately?

    It comes with the kit either the traxxas kit or even my strc kit.
    And that's what it sounds like to me as well. At least in how he's describing it. Plastic 2in long if it was a turnbuckle I think he'd describe it as plastic ends with a shiny chrome rod in between.

    From the image, the part number 3967 is the screws, but that piece they go into is what I need. Here are 2 pictures to help using Photo Bucket (hope this works!):






    Let me know what you think. If it is that part, is it not available separately rather than buying a whole kit?

    Ok yea that part is in the whole kit not sold seperate. So since you have to get a kit 2 options and its up to you. Go ahead and buy the traxxas one tra6845. Or an aluminum version of it. Like the one I have STRC. They have different colors

    Ya, I think I will stick to my original plan for the Stampede which was when something breaks, replace it with the upgraded, stronger version (if budget allows).

    Thanks to all for your help. I will let you know what happens. My Proline Sand Paws arrived today, but of course the truck is down. Not the end of the world because it's very cold here right now anyway.

    Do you know the model # for that kit from STRC? I found 2 of them:

    Is it http://www.teamstrc.com/index.php?ro...product_id=580 or is it http://www.amain.com/st-racing-conce...-compatibility

    I would be more interested in the aluminum one because of durability and it's not insanely expensive.

    My LHS which they get theirs from tower hobbies or horizon and I pay what either website shows. So I know they don't mark it up higher then what I can buy straight from Internet. Plus no shipping charges. So if I ever get parts I look on either website and give them that part number.

    Good deal. Just make sure when you put it together you set the servo saver just right. It's not like the stock one that has a clip or keeper where the spring is. The strc has a threaded style you still use your stock spring. How I did mine was put the stock one next to new one and compared height.

    Well, I would like to get some bumper advice form y'all for the Stampede 4X4 VXL. I have seen the RPM wide bumper and I see that T-Bone has one as well. I also see aluminum ones but that makes no sense as a bumper has to have some give.

    So, what's your opinion? I have heard the RPM is good and strong, but can crack where it connects. I have heard the T-Bone doesn't crack, but is softer and may have less protection. Anyone have either of these? I would love to hear your experiences with them, because a wide bumper would be very good protection I would think.

    Well the T bone does crack depending on the impact but I dunno about RPM but if you break the T bone send a pic in and they send a new one free of charge no questions asked. Well at least they didn't ask me how mine broke

    I have the RPM for the front and I use a slash rear bumper for the back.

    Has been working great for me. No cracks or anything yet.

    I decided to go with the T-Bone Wide Basher front bumper:

    http://t-bone-racing.net/Brand-N-Z/T...4x4-p1526.html

    I got the optional black nylon servo guard as well. More expensive than the RPM bumper but it's HUGE, looks cool and their warranty replacement is awesome, don't even have to send them the broken one.

    Nice surprise was that PayPal had deposited my cashback money so I didn't have to pay a thing!!

    It will be a while before it gets here, but I will let you guys know how it works out.

    Now, you said that you sealed up the holes in the rims. How did you go about that? I think I will use a heated hanger to poke holes in the tires, I don't relish using a drill because I might snag the foam. Also, do you suggest 2, 3 or 4 holes?

    I would start with just two holes at 180 degrees apart and see how it works out just because the more holes the weaker the tyre imo....peace
