I think sometimes you just need to calm down and think some of this stuff through. Most don't mind helping, but a new thread for every thought is just annoying. You said you have a track nearby, roam around and learn something from your local experience racers. At least you can see if you're getting good info from people who actually know what they're doing rather than a bunch of people on a forum who have no idea what they're talking about. I am amazed at how people will give advice and opinions on items they've never even used themselves.

ok. how often should i change my shock oil???

How long does a reciever battery pack fully charged usually last???

How can i hook up a lever for my gas tank so i can fill my tank without taking my body off???
1. for your shock oil, there is a good test when it needs to be changed. Flip your car over and push gently on the shocks. If you feel any air anywhere in the shock, then the shock needs to be replenished or oil needs to be replaced.

2. depends on the size of battery, your vehicle, and your servos. My truggy that has 2 digital servos usually can get 2-3 7 minute quals in before it dumps. It only has a 1400Mah though and i run 2 digital servos. With 1 digital servo, a 1600Mah can possibly last 4-5 7 minute quals.

3.take 2 zipties and string them together and put fuel tube on the end for grip when fueling up!!

At least he's not asking the same old which motor is better question, or should i get an 8ight or an Xray question.
I've Armour all'd my tires for looks before myself, right or wrong it looks good til you hit the track.

just broke my car down. cleaned it with wd40 (all i have). I took the wheel hubs and drive shafts out. cleaned the bearings because my whole drive system was locking up from dirt. My question is, should i pack the outdrives and wheel hubs with greese??? Or just put it where it has in the manual?? I have been putting alot of greese and i think the grease is attracting dirt and making it bind up. Any way have it all clean and ready to put back together. I think i will just grease the pins that go inside the axel in the wheel hub. Does that sound right?


also will wd40 hurt my plastic?? I took the radio tray, engine, fuel tank out and pretty much blasted the rest with wd40 and got after it with a toothbrush. I heard of people doing this. Just wondering if too much might be bad for the plastics.

All I can say is that he has had more questionsed answered than I have had. Nearly every thread goes to 2 or 3 pages. Kinda sucks when you start a new thread and only get 2 replies.

You have a bunch of people you can call, plus you actually race, so you get help at the track also. You also ask more difficult thought out questions..not questions like, what color should I paint my car?
