    RE: The Evader Coalition - T.E.C.

    That's happened to me. You can get metal servo arms, but it might not work perfectly.
    Where did you get the arm and what kinda problems did you have. I am kinda desperate because I do not now what to do about this problem.

    RE: The Evader Coalition - T.E.C.

    A metal servo arm may not be the solution. You really need to get the servo saver set correctly. If you just replace the arm with metal then something else will become the weak link. Just like your servo arm became the weak link when the servo was changed to metal. Just a little something to think about.

    RE: The Evader Coalition - T.E.C.

    Okay I got RPM rims and new proline wheels and a hitec servo (645-MG) for my st pro, now the problem. I was stripping the stock $10 servos the reason for the metal servo, but know I am stripping the steering servo arm, I have replaced it three time now.
    I bought the same servo and the same thing happened to me. I wanted to go and use it then and there so in a moment of pure stupidity I filled the end of the servo arm (the end with the Screw in it) with super glue and its worked for about 2 months with out fail.

    In other news my ST will be out of action for about a week while I wait for new parts. Broke the front shock tower and stripped the bolts from the front bulkhead. Was racing my brother in laws Evader and hit a pole at about 40Kph (26mph). My fault "again". You shoulda heard the noise. Oh well, it happens.

    By the way does anybody know how to get glued tires of the rims. My LHS said to soak the rims in actetone overnight, but my damn rims melted.

    I do however agree with duneslider a metal arm is not the answer and neither is super glue.

    RE: The Evader Coalition - T.E.C.

    I can't believe they said soak them in acetone. That surely would have melted them. I have heard a lot say to boil the rims but I have never tried it and can only imagine bad things happening.

    In theory, acetone works as a superglue remover. So you could maybe apply acetone to the glue joint and pull it apart. This is just a theory I have that I have never tried.

    I know it is sad but I would have to say I haven't heard of many good results of removing tires from wheels. So, the your best bet would be buy all new. I know the pain though. I have almost brand new road hawgs on cracking wheels. I will probably try some sort of removal process but I don't know if I will be successful.

    RE: The Evader Coalition - T.E.C.

    russ7172, Tamiyacrawler, Humphrey001,

    hitec servo (645-MG) stripping the steering servo arm. That's happened to me. Then I discovered that the stock servo arm (horn) for the Evader that I was using was for the stock servo which is made by futaba. The spline size and number is microns differant. You can now buy the proper servo arm in a set of three that includes one of each the futaba, hitec and airtronics. All other servos will fit into one of these categories.


    In the process of trying to fix this, I discovered similar information to what duneslider posted above on the servo saver. I absolutely recomend that. Without that change, that servo saver may as well be bolted tight, because it will almost never work the way it was designed to. Duratrax has fixed that as well.

    The part to fix both servo problems is: http://www2.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXHEG0&P=Z

    RE: The Evader Coalition - T.E.C.

    Actually, even when using the correct servo arm it can strip if you have a mg servo. Say you're going 20 and hit a tree with one wheel. That's alotta force on the servo horn and all of the linkages, and with a plastic gear servo, the gears, so it can still strip.

    Yes, boiling wheels for a few hours works, and won't melt the rim. But its evader rims we're talking about so.....

    Have you rounded off the contacts on the servo saver and cut the spring yet? Thats the next place to pursue.

    took it apart, filled it with automotive grease and tightened it up, and so far it's working, but we'll see for sure tomorrow.

    They don't make one for it. You'll have to custom fit one most likely.

    Not being rude, but may i ask why you would put a car body on a staduim truck?

    RE: The Evader Coalition - T.E.C.

    Discgolfer- I have the p2k2 and I run the stock gearing 18,88 and it seems fine. The motor doesn't seem too warm. So I would say try out the 20 and see how the motor feels. The 17 might be a little undergeared but would probably work too.

    I would go with the 20 first. I think the green machine has a little more torque than the p2k2.


    Cougar- you can make any body fit the evader if you get body post extenders. I believe the 190mm bodies are the best fit but really any can be made to work. There aren't any other bodies (besides stadium trucks) that are a direct fit.

    You're right, I don't know what I was thinking. Stock is a 20t and that is what I have been running with mine. I am not sure where I got the 18 from.

    I wouldn't mind the brushless part but the wife already is upset with two vaders in pieces all over the kitchen table.

    You should look into parting it all out. I bet you could get as much or more than you are asking.

    RE: The Evader Coalition - T.E.C.

    Ok...you said if I had questions....you'd have answers....well, here goes. I got this Evader BX real cheap.....brand new and they didn't want it anymore(kid had changed mind of interests). Anyway, I got a Blackfoot, Monster Beetle, and couple of Stampedes....you're getting the picture, right? I like my backyard monster bashers. I want to know what I can do to put a truck body on it and some good sized monster tires(about the size of the Stampedes wheels/tires). I had heard that you could convert the BX to an ST....but I don't want the "stadium" truck look. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Honey, I didn\'t do it! Your son gave me the transmitter seconds ago and said, \"Here Dad, put this away for me, will ya!

    RE: The Evader Coalition - T.E.C.

    I was in almost the exact opposite situation. I ended up with a Evader ST pro and would have rather had the BX. After checking the parts that would need to be changed to do the job right I decided to order a new BX Pro from Tower ($99), change over what I need to complete the BX and sell what's left of the ST or maybe keep it for the spare parts (lots of parts are still usable on both). Either way, I figure that I'll end up with a BX with the parts warranty for a very reasonable cost.
    Any technology, sufficiently advanced, will appear as magic
