Concrete step (off the sidewalk... Path to my front door.) at about 50mph.


@ draco... The pins shouldn't be too long... Traxxas has a fiberglass bar that goes in there if you want to take up that slop; someone else makes an aluminum one too, but I forget who.
the strc aluminum ones are slimmer than the stock ones the strc a arms came with e clips and pins i lked the idea of being able to hold them in place with a nut thats why i went with the strc locking hinge pins.i already got the fiberglass one installed

well after tried to mount the tranny the gears took up too much space so i had to gear it 25t 40t i get alot more usable speed now full throttle the wheels would only lift a lil bit i think i found the sweet spot with the gears 56t 18t was fun off road but on road its a lil slower than i like it to be.

"...immovable object..." Oh, they move. They move.

A friend's dog was only happy when he was stepping on one of our RC cars. I think he was jealous that he couldn't run as fast as them. Now that's just crazy canine shenanigans right there.
