uh oh. front motor only works intermittently. looks like dig not putting out voltage to motor all the time.

edit. bad solder joint ??? all working now. for the time being.

ACE - understanding that we are not comping (at least for now - muuhhahaa) do I want:

1. Front and rear track width the same ??
or
2. front track width wider than the rear ??
or
3. rear track width - wider than the front ??

IS WIDER BETTER ??

How much more room do you need? Traxxas Hexes are 2.5mm wider than any standard hex. Not sure that is enough space for you though. $4 for 4 hexes and pins. I use them on my wraith. Part -

It's over a 1/4 of an inch difference between the two. Don't know if they make Hexs that thick. I might have to save for V6 shafts.

i figured out why my front wheels like to come loose. screw holding wheel is about 4mm too short.

That's a cheap and easy fix. I can't wait for the cheater tires to get here. Slant belly will be a beast now that it's not running the 1.9 tires anymore LMAO :lol2:.

yea but you still need a wheel that will hold them on !!!:mrgreen:

Yea - I got some 2-3 mm longer - but TNT did not have any 4 x 14mm in stock.
I'll just buy online.

He broke it before I got out. Apparently he tried to stretch the uppers too much and the screws weren't long enough so they arms came apart causing the positive wire to seperate from the motor. He was fairly disappointed but it is an easy fix.
