So but honestly, i’ve only broke one c knuckle two steering knuckles. I broke links. That’S, why i’m running my uh custom made links that are basically your traxxas, revo or yeah? I believe they’re, the revo ends. I’Ve got got it on the forum and on one of the older links that i have are older videos um. Currently i just started running these. Those are the gold bat um, 1, 500, 100 c discharge. There are 3s lipos i’ve ran those i’ve ran 3s on this pretty much from after the first two weeks. I had it so for basically a year and a half and all the electronics are still holding up granted. I changed the servos out almost immediately and just because i didn’t really care for the stock servos i mean, i think, that’s pretty common i’m gon na swap batteries real quick anyway battery swapped out, i run the uh voltage alarm as you can see there. I run that so that i don’t drain my lipos down this thing’s not set up from the factory to run lipo, so you’ll kill a lipo battery. I actually did that several times until i started remembering to hook my alarms up so always remember, to set an alarm for your lipo batteries. Otherwise, you’ll wear them out. As you can see, my links have tons and tons of wear. I crawl this not every day. Here in the backyard with my son, but more often than not, he likes the faster rc’s.
He does doesn’t mind bashing around kind of with his crawler, but he’s not quite into the technical part of it yet, which is fine, it’s, a pretty good little basher. His is completely box stock minus i run these tires. They are a 6 3 overall diameter it’s made for 2.8 rim, and i took the stock danchi inner part of the tire cut it and then got some tire glue and glued them made. These my wheels are cut and shut, so they’re narrower, as you can see, there’s quite a bit less rim in the knuckle there or actually the wheel where it joins up. You can see. I run the slightly thicker blue aluminum, not the plastic wheel, hexes, so that i don’t break those, but as far as breakages i’ve had one gear strip out steering knuckles, two of them one steering hub um. I actually have broke the frame right there and right there. Basically, i think i might have dropped it or it might have had something to do with. When i cut this, when i had it kind of chalked up in the vise, i might have pre cracked it, but i made mine shorter, because i was always catching and hanging up on the belly granted. I could have probably put a delrin or something to slide across to make it easier, but anyway, this is basically what 18 months of running the dancy and i think, all in total i’ve got 20, maybe 25 dollars worth of actual parts that i had to replace.
Um the steering servos again, i replaced those just because i don’t didn’t, like the stock ones, because when you’re doing technicals the stock servos won’t um won’t do what i want them to do. My son, my sons, is just as old as mine. I bought them for christmas couple years ago or not last christmas, but the christmas before, and i got him a couple weeks before christmas and i wanted to try mine out and make mine look just slightly different than his and so i’d. Obviously, i’ve cut my body way way down, and this is still the stock original body it’s just i’ve cut it and narrowed it in the rear. You can see there and then i just cut it and glued it. So still uh still running that body.
