    Sheared a pin!

    Sheared an axle pin today on my p2de, luckily have 2 spares:



    Thought I had lost a wheel nut at first, had just done a backflip That's probably what broke it. Running my Rusty's Velineon in it with the LP Trenchers, boy is it fast! Mounted the ESC using 2 nails and 2 zipties


    I like free stuff!

    And then I just had to go fix it, run it, jump it, and shear it on the other side!!! Same jump, with less throttle (no backflipping), and it still took it out! Now once I fix it I'll have no spares left, guess I'll need to be careful

    I got a ( basically ) free slash this week. Ran it on titan 12t once just to shake it down. Now to add a little more zip ( I like free stuff too )

    These were the original axles from a 1999 p2de, so pretty sure that had something to do with it. I'm not sure if the newer axle's are any more sturdy or not, they seem to be, as I've done some good jumps with my rustler with no breakage. The spares I put in are old ones from the spare parts p2de I've got, will see how they do. In the meantime, no more jumping!

    Sorry for the delay on the response. You sure can. Ask away ( if it is still relevant)
