    Going to Pick up my NEW UDR after work Today 6/14

    Well after a month of research & test driving the UDR @ my local hobby shop & bugging my wife for the OK once I got her OK I ordered UDR & got the added Light Kit upgrade TRAXXAS had a Promo going on with the UDR not going to refuse a FREEBE from TRAXXAS LOL. I got the RIDGID UDR Black & Red color combo I am totally excited to get it I can hardly wait until 4PM.

    Wile @ the hobby shop is there any spare parts I should pick up right away FYI I am good on LIPOS

    I have one coming also. I have been out of RC trucks for a couple years and was selling a few of my drift cars when I came across the UDR trucks from Traxxas. My first truck was a Traxxas 2wd Slash. Never broke anything on it as I never got crazy with it. I still have a 2wd Slash that I have modified with a LCG Anza chassis. That was before Traxxas came out with the LCG chassis. When I saw the UDR, I had to have one, and will in a couple more days.

    tape or plug the holes in the rims, before dirt gets in
    or melt holes in the tires
    consider installing the open diff and 34 47 gearing
    40wF 70wR shock fluid with 8-10mm of lowering spacers
    green or blue strip springs
    for handling and longer lasting parts
    try it stock and report back

    cwmoss if you could post a picture of the lcg anza slash chassis

    A steering servo like FlyingDutchman said. Mine lasted about one hour out of box and I never hit or crashed truck before it stoped steering... then it hit a brick planter when I couldn’t turn it!!!

    Search “savox servo” and you can read all the servo stories and also get the part number.

    Thanks guys for your suggestions I picked up my UDR Friday after work I did pickup a water proof SAVOX servo & I did get a few spare Gears of different #'s so I play around with that also picked up a new motor heat sensor tester as well I have different weight shock oil's so I play around with them too

    I did not even have a chance to take my UDR out of the box yet. Had two Graduation Party's to attend to Saturday so my day was full of that & today Sunday is Mow the grass day & wash the wife's car & my truck "I do both anyways on weekends anyhow" so there clean for the week Than I plan on unboxing the UDR later this afternoon I hop to get a few break in runs in on the UDR later this afternoon. but I keep you guys updated

    I also picked up a UDR yesterday but did not get the chance to run it yet. I got the Rigid red/Black UDR.

    I'm in awe of the scale detailing...not sure what direction I'm going to go with it yet. I decided the Defender will have an easy life of body detailing and mild slow crawling. It's tempting to do similar with the UDR, but then, after watching so many videos of it shredding dirt, that's tempting too!
