    Hey that's why we're here, man! To help others cuz others helped us. It's fun. :)

    While you're in the diff putting in the metal one, you might want to get some K&S Precision Metals stock #502...

    It's not uncommon to have to solder on the motor wires.
    That Castle combo would be great in your car.
    I get stuff from HobbyPartz in a couple days. Shouldn't take you more than five, long as it's...

    LOL! Did I mention I need a good microscope and professional soldering pencils? :D Thanks tho. Retirement is just peachy. :cool:
    Will have to seriously consider Atomic in the future.

    That is a good price, especially for a full sized 540 motor. May have to get one for my Hyper TT if I ever decide to put a bigger system than the HobbyWing 380 I run in it now. Had good luck with...

    Oh HA! :D I wasn't a programming guy. Hardware. Worked on circuit boards. I can solder a resistor on a PCB the size of that period on your keyboard. :cool:

    If the wheelbase is the same between the two, AND the body width is right, it'll probably fit.
  9. Hmmm....does my screen name have something to do...

    Hmmm....does my screen name have something to do with Linux? Where'd you get the reference?

    Yeah, HobbyPartz is reputable. If a bit frustrating sometimes. They go out of stock on some things...

    Well, how much do you like the cars and the way they handle? Happy with them for what you're wanting to do? (Play) Those are still fairly respected platforms, with some nice upgrades. Why not just...
  11. That's my main beef with those connectors right...

    That's my main beef with those connectors right there. That's were I think the Traxas conns have the advantage over other spade-types discussed. You solder the wire to the spade, and let it cool...

    All good suggestions. Everyone has their favorites. That Hitec charger the OP linked is a good charger. Good price, too. I'm not a fan of using adapters. Works in a pinch, or if you really...

    Have you looked at the Thunder Tiger MT4-G3? Big 8th-scale truggy. Word around here says it's really tough. Isn't scale to anything, however, as most buggies/truggys aren't.

    With cheap hex drivers, you'll find the tips round off. THis can cause stripped fasteners. At least buy one, quality driver for the size you use the most. Trust me.

    I take it that you're in the UK? While we can help you with generalities, and we do have people from all over, this forum is kinda US-centric. You blokes in the UK, and Europe, seem to have brands,...

    FIRST, make sure you've done the transmitter-ESC calibration. Look it up in your manual. If that doesn't resolve the issue, then I would check the motor wires and/or the bullet connectors between...
  19. Ah, forgot to mention batteries and charger. ...

    Ah, forgot to mention batteries and charger. Used to be that NiMh packs were cheaper than LiPo, but it seems that they've pretty much achieved parity. But if you can get a good deal on a couple of...

    Nah, it just means it's 120A capable. Probably 6S capable. The 60A is probably 4S max? The key is the motor. It's a full 540-size, so it'll give you plenty of torque, and the 4000kv will give you...
  21. I that is indeed true, the motor is toast. ...

    I that is indeed true, the motor is toast. Fishing tackle. If you bought it that way, I'd return it under warranty. And buy that other system in the meantime.

    And no, you can't do anything...
  22. From your description it sounds like the motor...

    From your description it sounds like the motor shaft is slipping on its magnets, or vice-versa. How else could the motor sound like it's running, but you can stop the pinion from turning by simply...

    A steering servo, and a motor system. You could probably get by with an XL-5 brushed motor system from Traxxas. Gear it down enough and it should have plenty of torque, but be slow enough for...

    The Stampede is a good platform. I'VE read that the E-Revo needs a good deal of after market parts to keep it from breaking. But that might've been the mini E-revo.

    Thick grass can be hard on...

    Rusty, the OP said he can stop the motor with his finger. That says it all right there.

    I think you have a defective system/motor. I'd return it, and get that Atomic system. Killer deal...
