Re: Budget friendly rx and tx

not really sure. I do know some of the digital stuff uses higher resolution and can also change the pulse widths to be greater than a regular 45 degree throw(or, more precisely, 1.5mS, +- .5mS), so maybe the digital outputs (if a cheap model and not adjustable) can cause the servo to try and travel ...

Re: Budget friendly rx and tx

s148s are tough servos, it would be pretty hard for that to fail. I would suggest some entry level futaba servos, S3004, for 15 bucks, basic ball bearing servo, should be pretty bulletproof. the futaba connectors should fit fine in the new radios(as long as they aren't 'G' exposed pins). You may or ...

Re: RC10 CE updates

Bullets are fine for running around. They are more lossy but I don't think you would notice unless you were competitively racing.

Re: RC10 CE updates

you can buy ball bearings for $1.00 each now as compared to much more back in the day. You can find Boca or AvidRC online, as well as plenty of others. as for the rear axle question, if your car has 1/4" axles, the guys at team associated are probably telling you to convert to 3/16" axles so you can...

Re: RC10B2 CVA/CVD options

they should technically fit, although probably just a tad short just like they are on the worlds re-release. I believe you should be able to shim them out to get where you need to be. it sucks, I think this is the biggest problem now for rc10 suspension; the associated set is really too short, the s...

Re: RC-10 Graphite Battery Question

Yeah older nice packs might fit. They also fit better without the end caps or if you run a side by side 6 cell.

Re: RC10 Transmission Help

No, not an easy way to adjust timing on a sealed endbell. Cut brushes can adjust timing but are fragile and don't last long.

Re: RC10 Transmission Help

It's a sealed endbell, so it's probably a stock motor of some kind. Depending on timing and construction, they can run pretty well. If you have that motor and the esc, wire it up and check it out.

Re: RC-10 Graphite Battery Question

You may also need to move the cup forward. Rather than drill holes, you can use servo tape and tape it down.

Re: Some advice for newbiers buying a used Yokomo offroad.

That really goes for any car, but I know what you mean particularly about yokomos. One other thing is that the magnesium parts are kinda fragile so you expect the bulkheads and carriers to sometimes suffer stripped holes, stuck screws, etc.

Re: RC10 Transmission Help

the outdrives are the 'differential halves'. They are what the diff rings fit to and connect the diff to the dogbones and drive the car forward.

Re: RC10 Transmission Help

And to round it out, a good 16 or 17 turn will run with no problems in a 6 gear trans all day long. Depending on the battery you are using (lithium polymer or NiMH or Nicd) you will have to watch your temps and run time. The lipo and NiMh capacities are much higher than older nicd technologies and c...

Re: RC10 Transmission Help

The 6 gear was run with pretty hot motors back in the day so I wouldn't work too much running something like a 13.5 in a 6 gear. Otherwise, it's also getting hard to find stealth outdrives, so get what you can get.
