Okay, well that is good to know...I thought the stock tranny came with bushings. Well I am piecing together my new graphite chassis as we speak. It has been slow going though. Thanks again galaxie.

I have a problem with my BB motor. I think something is bent because no matter what the gear wont mesh right no matter what truck I put it on and no matter that pinion I use. Does anyone know whats going on?

hey guys, i have been playing with the idea of these lights from losi. since they are meant for the factory 5 wire setup, and i now have the 3 wire servo and ESC etc, could i wire them inline with the ESC switch like this......




what do you think????????

Mike, wouldn't you need a ground for that? The way it looks, you're just tied into the '+' positive line..... kind of like just holding both wires to the top of a battery, you have to have one on the top of the battery and one one the bottom to get the light to come on, you know what I mean?

I'm no expert, just a thought.

PS, your T is looking good!

...or it that a specific switch for the lights? Not the off/on switch for the truck.

I bought a used T which had a really simple light that was attached right to the motor leads.... of course it would only come on under throttle and dim at half speed, kinda like a dimmer switched light.

I Picked up 2 of those Aero-nuts 2S1P 7.4V 200mah Lipos. Wow, no more Stock Batteries for me LoL
They work well, Havent tried to see how long I can make it last, Been taking it easy. But TONS of power, no problem riding wheelies.
And I'm just Bone Stock(other than the Battery)

if youm look closely at the wheels you will c these little clips that lok like e's
you have to takethose off to take the wheels off...
be careful though..
they are very small and if you take it off wrong the clip will fly into space and you will never find it..
well glad to help

best way to do it is to put the car in a ziplock bag, and use a safety pin to pull the clips off (poke throug the bag)

this way, when the fly off, they fly inside the bag.

and just get the threaded axkes.

Threaded axles are soooooooooooo nice. But they can be a pain at times. Like when you have to tighten them just right otherwise the wheel won't spin or the nut will spin off. Thread lock works though and you can also dremel a little off the wheel.

Hey guys I noticed that a few of you guys are running a metal or different spur gear...I wanted to get one and was wondering where to get, and what is the tooth # of stock spur gear, I think I will stick to stock.

Got some new stuff in the mail today...Not pictured are the toyz alum tranny and bearings. I got some threaded axels as well, BB motor, car stand, new complete tranny, screw set, camber kit, two sets of wheel/tire, Losi threaded shocks (cant wait to try, what weight oil?), and a clear body for a custom look.
The other 3racing graphite kit is for a rc18t/b, I dont even have a kit yet!! lol. I think its my next project, besides i got a really good deal on the kit on ebay. Hey mike did you get your wiring done. I would love to see some new shots of the BL system. I am debating on getting the BL and spektrum micro reciever, I really dont like the look of the bare stock electronics on the graphite. Hows your ride doing?
