    Rebuild Vendetta ST Ball Differentials

    The differentials on my vendetta are shot. When I spin the diff it is very ruff. How do I go about rebuilding these?

    What balls will work etc?

    RE: Need help with power supply

    Apache 2500.

    It only works once in a while... UGH.

    Help please?
    The charger says that it only accepts 12-15v.
    Would it be bad to use a 4A 16v supply?

    RE: Pure beginner....

    I would read up on Li-Pos. There is a lot to learn about them and I don't want to get into too much detail but I recommend buying one of these:

  12. RE: Need help gearing my Vendetta ST (Brushless Li-Po)

    Alright, well if I smooth the throttle out the cogging goes away.
    I tried with 2 different Li-Pos:
    2500 mAH 15C 3S
    2250 mmAH 25C 3S

    Both cogged but smooths out.
    I have stock spur which I...

    I am running a Mamba 25 ESC. My hobby shop said that that esc may...

    I would disagree. I highly doubt that walmart is going to stock all spare parts needed for the monster/expensive vehicle. I think if anything will happen it will boost the LHS's income.

    Alright, I figured out what was wrong. It MIGHT help to actually plug the thing in. It worked and yes the fan turned on.
