Sorry, question after question...should I stop asking questions???
I bought these motors used. Pretty sure they are machine wound. the 35 turn is a work horse. I'm sure they will do just fine. I'll be running this rig on 2S. I'm running stock gearing for now until I can drive it a bit and get a feel for the temps.

Scalers I tend to just drive slow and enjoy watching them navigate terrain. this body is going to take a fair amount of time to complete, so I plan on taking it easy on it for a while

Speaking of the body I am using one of Benders blog posts to finish the body. He did a great tutorial for those of you who plan on building the kit. you can find it here:

The 35T should be pretty peppy on 2s. I came real close to going with the same combo but ended up electing for a 55T on 3s since I had some laying around.

I tend to think the stock gearing is a little high for the normal RTR setup (27T on 2s), but I bet it will work out nice with the 35T

That sentence sums up my outlook on scalers to the T. Well put. Mine is about a month old and still looks new, lol.

Honestly for a scaler I don't see anything wrong with plastic links. But I don't drive mine that hard. Stockers held up fine for over a year on my RtR truck.

When did this happen and how did I miss it?

I picked up a new little TIG welder this week if you want to play with anything new!

No, closer to 90mm from mid eyelet to eyelet. I went back and looked if I missed installing a travel limiter but I don't see anything.

If you have a chance, can you pls tell me the measurement of the front upper links from eye-eye? I bought the rtr and tried around and now i dont know which upper link is the right one to put in. I believe the lower links i use the 103mm aluminium rods?

ONE time! That only happened ONE TIME! Act like I'm the first one to get a little bit of dinner mixed into a paint job by accident...
