What did you do to your model today?


Recommended Posts

Fixed my maverick strada mt front left lower arm with cable ties after slipping on mud at 30mph (ezrun 60 a 8.5t is a killer on a design that was never ment for brushless)

Then I trimmed my brand new shell and fitted it with cut up cola bottle mud guards on the inside to try and protect my ezrun investment from the snow that I pray is going to arrive for Christmas.....

Last year I used duct tape over the esc and motor but found it a royal pita so maybe this year my simple but thought out design may work..... Pardon me while I curse hpi/maverick for leaving the inside of the strada chassis so vulnerable.......

test run the truck...realised why i couldnt keep it in a straight line..rear knuckle is loose and needs replacing (should be a twenty min job)

broke front dogbone on one side (aluminium dog bones...why???)

found steel replacement in my spares tray...tiny bit short so fuel tubing in one end pushed it out nicely...

re tried...fuel tubing pushing dogbone too far out...so not engaging in outdrive...solution ? fuel tubing in the other drivecup(but a smaller bit)


hands ended up too cold to do any more testing/fixing (noticed rear hub extender pin is coming out)

Truck filthy...but good to iron out little problems before its bash on sunday !

Cleaned mud from E-Maxx after Saturdays bash, also dropped pinion down 3 teeth as motor did hit 92 degrees C! Will monitor that on the next outing.

Also replaced worn pinion and ring gear from another E-Maxx diff, now good to go and is in the spares box.
