Do Irecall correctly that you were using "music wire" in lieu of spring pins for your axles?


If you so, does it fit loosely in the axles, or do you have to press it in with a pair of pliers??

Iwas looking at some today and it either went in loose, or not at all.

Thanks
Yeah the music wire does fit a little loosly, you have to use a dab of blue loc-tite, but you'll never break one again.
(Sorry, double post. Network hiccup)

I got the wheels off ebay $20. That's also where the body came from. I just scored $75 worth of brushless evader parts from a guy who was parting out a brand new one. Scored it all for $27 shipped. Gonna install the new chassis when it comes with the receiver box. I already have the water proof xl5 esc and a traxxas 2056 servo so it's gonna be water proof. Here's a pic of my boy's Evaders. Found both on Craigslist.

I still love my st. I cant keep the tranny together. Keep having the topshaft gears sawtooth and the diff gears strip out. My lhs dosent carry parts anymore. And i dont have a credit card.

Any idea why tower is out of so many parts for the evader ext?
Are they getting ready to discontinue it?

Maybe. It's about as old as the st was when it was discontinued. The ext2 and Brushless have pretty much ruled out the ext, dt, and st.

The good part is, EXT, EXT2 and BL parts are interchangeable for the most part.My EXT is at BL specs right now. I did order the Red/White and Blue EXT shell. The EXT2 was ugly and Icould not find the color BL shell that I wanted.

That was the body I was going to get for mine but I got the blue ext body at a cheap price....


I see that the EXT2 is now in stock at tower and other places..........so maybe parts will follow???????

the ext was discontinued over a year ago, replaced by the ext2. there is not 1 part of the ext2 that cant fit on the ext*



*you may need to do some light modding to get the ESC plate to mount

Has anybody here run a 25T pinion and 72T spur. Is it a good ratio?

It seemed like a good ratio. But i soon needed more speed and got a bigger pinion.

I want to get the 7.4v 2S 5000mah 40C Venom battery. Also I need a new battery for my "Neptune" (Check my Garage). It leaked all over. It has like six rechargable double A's in a 3x2 pattern. Does anyone know where I can buy one in the US? Not anything from Hong Kong. Just the US.
