I have had a Baja 5T for years now but over the last 4 years it's basically sat in my garage untouched.
I had the sudden urge to get it back up and running. To my surprise my lips batteries seem perfectly fine. I believe I did a 'storage charge' on them before so that probably helped.
Here is my 5T on it's first run post break-in. At this point I was still running about 3/4 throttle max. You car hear the truck bog down a bit during one of the donuts. I richened the LSN a bit and it sounded much better. Other then that it's still running at factory settings on the...
Hey guys I'm currently running the following:
Hostile boots (grey)
Darksoul meaty bones
killer rc 9.5mm turnbuckle spacers
The boots on the hub carrier side keep sliding off. I am thinking it's a combination of the thicker hostile boots, on the thicker toobz, coupled with the higher...
Where might a guy go looking for some 17x19x0.1mm shims for the idler gear inside the trans, and 20x22x0.1mm shims for the bearings on the outer diff that sit in the trans case?
I have looked everywhere that I can think of!!!
Well it's that time again! Not a lot of driving to be done up here in Canada so I usually tear my truck down and clean it all up, replace bearings etc. This year I went a little crazy! Most of my parts/upgrades have arrived and I have been doing things as I can.
I am building this truck to be a...
Are these two things normal? Or am I doing something wrong??
First one is some heavy slop in the idler gear. I did this exact same thing with my stock trans case and it had 0 play at all.
Next up is the bottom of the trans case where it bumps out...
If you can't see it well you should be able to click on the pic and see it un-scaled!
This is a craftwerks v2 titanium layshaft with the stock 19T drive gear!
The play is VERY noticeable when the transmission goes together and you pull in and out on the layshaft. It measures out to be about...
Here is how I installed a Hitec 7980 mega torque servo into my stock receiver box.
The 7980TH is 10% larger than a regular sized throttle/brake servo like the Hitec 5955TG (old 7955TG).
Here are the measurements of each servo:
5955TG is 20.13mm wide
5955TG is 40.21mm long...
Does any one besides Woodster make a 5T body similar to the stock body? Mine is getting pretty scruffed up and I would like more durable one! Has to be a truck style body and it must be an acceptable look for my gf's tastes 8)
Probably a dumb question but I can take my stock diff spider gears, bearings, etc and drop them in http://www.davesmotors.com/s.nl/it.A/id.4310/.f and then drop the whole assembly in http://www.davesmotors.com/gt320.html correct?
I have a 7980TH on the way and I would like a billet servo horn to go with it! Hitec are 24T splines right? Who makes a horn for it? I know it comes with a blue aluminum horn but I'd like an upgrade if possible?
Title says it all. I have enamel engine paint rated for 500F/260C. Will it hold up?
I have a TGN track pipe that I have cleaned up with a grinder and wire wheel. Being that it's steel I either wasn't to polish it and clear coat it (can you get high temp clear coat?), or paint it with this...
I am looking to buy a Hitec 7980TH servo and it says that it requires programming?
What exactly does that mean? Just programming through the TX like EPAs etc?
Hey guys I am going to be running an OBR full mod 30.5cc and I'm curious about gearing.
I currently have a turtle clutch with a 17/57 cb to spur ratio. I only bash bug my bash spot does have so he nice long open runs so I do wasn't to gear for a bit of extra top speed.
I am assuming that I...
