I have a quick question, when I was building the rear drive shafts the bag had four pins. Two were for the CVD and two were for the axle/wheel hexes. My question is are they the same size? I couldn't see any difference between the four pins (I measured with calipers) but in the manual they have two different parts numbers.

I found the same thing. I believe they are the same, and the manual shows different part numbers because of the CVD rebuild kit vs just the pins.

With all of this diff talk.... the outdrives should be totally fine, right? not really a way those can get damaged except on the outside of em?
outdrives wear where bone connect to them. replace them when you see the outdrives have grooves gouged in them from wear. if worn badly, use a dremmel to grind off burrs to remove bearings.

I've heard mixed reviews on the schelle/ avid vs stock slipper. Some say the stock is way better....Thoughts?

stock is way better? That is complete bull sh@t. The schelle and avid are the same slipper. And both are 100 times better than the stock.

If you use the Avid or Schelle ?

Use white pad on the back of spur & 2 red pads on the outside.

What's difference in performance between the three slippers

VTS
Very smooth, great slipper for lower traction.

Avid or Schelle

Smooth , hits a little harder then the VTS.

Vented twin yellow pads

I feel is the best.
Has great feel with lighter throttle or making smaller jumps.

[/QUOTE]Uh, this would REALLY depend on what class you are running, and what surface you are running on.

I was actually just about to order an Avid slipper. What is the preferred pad setup to go with the Avid slipper used in 17.5? Will be running on medium to high bite indoor clay (and carpet in the future)?

I use 3 whites in stock. I add a red for mod. If you are ordering from avid, get the custom kit and the spurs you want. white/red/white will hit a little harder. white/white/white is a little smoother.

Does anyone know of any light weight shorty lipos that use a 5mm bullet connector?

if you find one let me know, lol. All I can find is 4mm. Right now all 3 cars are wires for 5mm. But TQ racing has bullets that are 4 and 5mm.

We probably won't see a 5mm bullet connector light weight 2s, because the 5mm setup weighs a little more.

The 4mm/5mm bullet is probably the best compromise if running the two battery types., but I am not too sure about that extra 5mm being exposed on 4mm.

yeah, that was my concern also. I was thinking more so for the charge leads.

Most lightweight shorties you will have a hard time finding 5mm, however Protek carries a 3200 shorty that only weighs 155grams when they usually weight 200+grams.

Check it out:

Also on another note, how many MAH do you think you need for a 10 minute main?
