I'm with the OP. His first two posts in this thread echo my sentiments on the hobby exactly. I barely ran any of my rc's last year and haven't even thought of touching them this year. My nephew is...

Why are you telling me to keep calm? It may be a silly subject but what about that post, with the well reasoned "arguments" wasn't calm? Maybe it's not liberal stoner hippy Koombaya around a campfire...

That's definitely an oddball. Those look like Traxxas Maxx bulkheads that have been modified making me wonder if it's a custom mutt of a truck. The front bulks even have an angle to them like Maxx...

Double check the connectors on the esc and battery, make sure they're making good contact.

If you have a 3906 Emaxx you're better off sticking to brushed, in which case I'd look for an EVX2 esc....

People go with an aluminum trans case to try and reduce motor heat? That makes no sense for multiple reasons, number 1 being the motor doesn't contact the trans case. The motor is mounted to the...

Just saying it won't move is not much to go on and we can't definitively say what the problem is. It could be anything from the clutch, to the slipper, to a gear or drive pin in the trans. You need...

This isn't quite correct. The potentiometer tells the servo's processor the position of the servo's output shaft. The processor then spins the motor whatever direction it needs to in order to get the...

There are no upgrades for the 3903/5/8 trans because its the one part of the truck that doesn't need to be upgraded. The stock metal gears are pretty much bulletproof and an aluminum case would only...

A 1/8 system in a 1/10 truck? Unless you're going to buy stock in Redcat for all the drivetrain parts it's going to chew up and spit out I wouldn't go that big. 540, 550 size with a 80-120amp short...

What do you have the timing set at? If you got it cranked up that will heat things up.

Edit: The only effect dust will have is on the bearings. Dusty conditions with the decreased traction that...

I ran the gear calc on your combo, even on 6s that's about 60mph theoretical. You want 85kph or 50mph which it shouldn't have had any problem doing and it really shouldn't have gotten all that hot...

The RallyX is really a short course truck with a car body on it. As such it uses short course wheels to clear the suspension just like the Traxxas Rally does. I don't know of any drift tires (mounted...

Yup something like that should work nicely. And yes I'd try to use your current center diff mounts. You'll probably need different size bearings to make it work but I'm sure the size is out there for...

There are no bolt in brushless motor/center diff mounts for that vehicle and I doubt any other center diff would fit without modifications either. But you do not wa t to swap in a different so enter...

Definitely sad to see one of the old guard companies go, especially since they kept so much in the US.

I was never really a fan of theirs when brushless started to take over. The ROAR rule book...

The easiest way to do this would be with a 1/8 touring car 2speed. 1/8 touring cars are basically 1/8 buggy/truggy with lowered suspension and street tires. These are available in the Kyosho GT and...

You really don't want it shifting unless you're using a small motor with not much voltage. When the trans shifts it'll send shock loads through the drivetrain which is t the toughest to begin with....

In my opinion the AA batteries are a limiting factor even with the stock motor. AA's are usually better in lower amp draw setups and a rc vehicle is a comparatively high amp draw setup. I'd try...

I hear you about the slop, but if you want to use them anyway you can fix the bearing issue. Simply put a shim between the bearing and hex. The shim should be only as big as the inner race of the...

The pinion/spur pitch is 32p or mod.8 pitch. Mod.8 is actually 31.75p so close enough, take your pick.

The stock center shaft will be fine on 3s. The driveshafts/axles going to the wheels are the...

From the little bit of research I've done its definitely not a bolt in swap. Gotta break out the welder to make your own engine mounts. The manual trans on a NA Z31 is the same used for SR20 and KA...

From what I can tell it's an Ofna 9.5 MBX buggy. Btw the front wheels look like they're pointing in a weird direction. It's likely caused, at least in part) due to the front upper arms facing the...
