I like it!

I swear I always hear about this stuff the day AFTER I buy something I just "settled" for. Nice find.

Sigh...

That utility bed looks good but I'm not seeing it free anywhere lol.

Anyway I could possibly use this for a project, would someone mind measuring the width and height of the Sendero Cab?

This cage should be a touch narrower and maybe an inch shorter.

I've been interpreting the thread title as Upgrades and Free Mods...

Not Free Mods and Free Upgrades...

About 8Ē at the widest and 5.75Ē for height (approx with tape measure)

Re: New Associated Enduro Crawler - Free-Mods & Upgrades
 
Chris you just need a scale crane to hoist it up from the ground to waist level. Rc4wd should have something like that lol

In all seriousness I wish you well. I hurt my back just as bad a couple years ago. But I know the "more wise" you get, the slower recovery can be. Take it easy.
Whats this new car? Worthy of posting in the 1:1 section?

OKAY now on to this new bed for the enduro...
SOZE... How do you feel about this? Its not really a truggy cage or a utility flat bed but sort of a mixture of both?
I actually think yours looks better, but this looks easier to install. I might actually bite.
I was having trouble deciding between the RTR body, or slapping the proline 79 cab on with ascender cage.
This utility bed may have swayed me. The RTR body stays... For a while anyway.

Neat find! And also very nice the team at AE is still giving us neat stuff! Well not "giving" but you know what I mean.
HOLY SMOKES only $35?! DONE!

Enduros ASSEMBLE!

Re: New Associated Enduro Crawler - Free-Mods & Upgrades
 
Thanks guys - some eight back and neck injuries over forty years, chronic arthritis and neuropathy is my realm. But this one is different, tweaked ligaments and muscles from something I did two weeks ago. Usually a good sleep and some stretching I'm good, but not this time. Slowly improving, at least the piercing pain has subsided and I can walk again. Went to ER last week and they said Tylenol and icy-hot, and lay down for a few days - so I went back to work!
Having RC truck withdrawals. LOL
Oh, and the car is killer - a new Challenger R/T. 375hp. 8)
No, it's not a Hellcat. LOL - I'm 62, not 32! And I'm being forced to sell my last motorcycle. :cry:

For a truggy - anybody check with SWM? They have some really nice stuff for Axial - should work on this Element.

Shinchu 07-27-2019 08:46 AM

Re: New Associated Enduro Crawler - Free-Mods & Upgrades
 
SWM? and yes I literally had the axial honcho cage in my cart at RPP, but this one from AE dropped before I pulled the trigger.

Challengers look bitchin! I kinda wanted a charger but they dont make em in manual (seems they are going extinct) so I gave up and got my f150.
Yes lots of rest and the best painkillers you can get without addiction. Easy does it!

M6 standard with all the V8’s, A8 is $1500.

yeah for the coupe. The sedan never got crash tested with a manual so they cant sell them.

Bout to order this new cage right meow!

Well... I bought the Enduro Kit too, but just haven't really mentioned it or started on it. Just bought the utility bed and an Enduro Body set yesterday which I'll use on the kit.

Back troubles suck. I got rear-ended a few years ago, and I saw it coming in the rear-view mirror, because I heard the tire screeching behind me. Instead of keeping limber, I braced myself for impact between the steering wheel and my seat. Big mistake... messed my back up and it's still not fully pain free 100% of the time.

Same thing here. Got rear-ended 10 years ago. Guy hit me going about 45 to 50 mph. My low back and my neck have never been the same since. Back problems do suck! Hang in there Chris. Get well soon!

Re: New Associated Enduro Crawler - Free-Mods & Upgrades
 
Hello all, been in and out of R/C's over the years. I have three trail trucks now.
I put a lift on my Enduro as I though it sat a bit low visually. I put about a 1/2" lift on and with playing with shock angles I have found very good articulation in the rear.
Massive compression & massive droop (or it seems pretty good to me). There is more travel to be had than with the shock itself. Gotta get a good angle now at the front...
You can see how far back I mounted the front bumper & 45'd the edges.
Cheers

Hood and side-panel graphic decals in a multitude of patterns - some of which fit each category mentioned above!

Not gonna lie, kinda want the faux wood panelling..... I wonder if there's a Clark Griswold figure out there that would fit in one of these... lol

I took a chance and ordered some X rings from Associated to see if they fit the Enduro shocks and sure enough they're the same width and thickness and feel very smooth after a bit of slime.

Re: New Associated Enduro Crawler - Free-Mods & Upgrades
 
Tell us more about the shocks - has there been sticktion reported?
And the caps - kit has alloy and RTR are plastic?

I haven't run mine enough to assess the shocks. They seem more on par with Traxxas, over the other brands. My vaterra shocks all seem to leak.

The kit shocks are the best Ive built, CLOSE to velvets, x rings and green slime. Hand tighten, zero leakage. Did I say Smoooooth????
Make my dravtechs look poor, and those are fantastic


Hang up and Drive

If you are talking about SMF, people on here had some major problems either not getting the cage they ordered or it not fitting when they did get it. There is a thread on here with a bunch of members that were less than happy with their purchase from SMF.

I've only run the truck a few times in my backyard but I want to add that the X-rings I added are not needed at all I just like the idea of X-rings. The stock red O-rings are just as smooth feeling.

Kit does have alloy caps, I dont feel any sticktion with some green slime (I didn't test without slime).

Ya, them. I always get acro's confuzzled. LOL
That's too bad. I had some correspondence and saw pics of their work and thought it was a cool option. I was focused on my vaterra at the time and they were just building stuff for axial.
Oh well. :roll:

I thought a cawling buddy got one of their cages...I'll have to ask him.

Re: New Associated Enduro Crawler - Free-Mods & Upgrades
 
Yes, walking again. Two weeks for the pain to subside. Kaiser sent me a bill for $1200+ to look at me for five minutes and nothing for pain. I told them there's something wrong with their program if everybody is charged $982 to show up there. But if I was an illegal alien it's free? That's what our governor keeps saying.
They're going to at least HEAR from me. It's a good thing I'm mentally stable. LOL
Thanks for asking. I need some RC time. :)

I saw on-axle servo mounts in both plastic and metal over on ShapeWays for the axles today... and a metal one-piece shock hoop and Panhard mount.

Also, front inner fenders that seem to include battery supports for bigger batteries.

Hot Racing brass wheel weights advertised as specific for the Enduro on fleaBay.

Stuff is coming out!

My Elem-End-Ero shipped yesterday... (shortened the name a bit, too dang wordy) "thumbsup"

Been trying to get the Ascender back-half cage to work and I’m just not digging the way it fits. Or rather DOESN’T fit. Sits up way too high and just looks weird.

Totally digging that utility bed though. Think I might have to pick that up!

What Codyboy said.

Pros:
No bumpsteer
More efficient dragging of the tie-rod for steering, and not affected by suspension movement
Weight on axle, less weight up top.
No chassis shift on suspension compression from using a panhard.

Cons:
Not scale look
Need clearance for the servo on suspension compression.
Servo arm exposed unless blocked by a guard.
Exposed servo wire
