a mild mod would be too much. You'll want a stock motor in that case.

You'd be suprised, but people acctually take novice truck seriously

That will reprogram it...

You're welsome... You were going into programming mode...

BTW, be careful about that. If you accidentally put it on brushed mode with the brushless sensor wire hooked in, its NOT good.

yea i know, but i was sure that it was on BRUSHLESS mode. so yea.

btw, i have this servo problem, i replaced the servo with the same servo, but a different one i borrwed from my buddy, but it still has the problem. The problem is that when i turn, it like glitches while turning. i think ill be checking my servo saver. i tried tightening the servo saver in the bk2, but still happens. When i drive, and go and then try to turn, it turns a little bit, takes 1 second, and turns fully. i think i might have to replace the bearings, or for now, use those plastic spacers. Any ideas anyone? thanks. I think the bearings at socal are like 20 bucks? should be worth it i guess...i got birthday money coming up this sunday

does it do it when the servo is out of the car?

Also, bearings are way cheaper and better ones here:

www.avidrc.com

I just placed an order with them today.

no the servo is fine out of the car. i think the servo arm is slipping, but i chagned the servo arm, with a tc3 one, and modded it to fit the ball stud for the bk2, and it still does it..really weird.

WOW those bearing prices are cheap!

The Avid bearings are good too...

Check the bellcrank for binding... Use The losi arm, it sticks out farther than Associated...

If you want good bearings for cheap go for AVIDS.


SOCAL IS SOOOOO OVERRATED!

How has 4wd class been going lately? I was thinking of trying a little off road but can't decide on a class. Looks like there hasn't been too many 4wd heats on the socal results page. i might just pick up a truck since that's what most are running. Hate showing up to a race and they don't have enough for my class of car. BTW- what's a "truggy"? i thought that was a nitro class... but it's listed on the socal results I think.

4WD is just plain fun...run whatever motor and battery you like...I run at Revelation and ARC against the gas guys and at SoCal when I can get out there.

10 minute mains are cool.
