I thought SORCA rules required a frame-mounted servo.

Re: New Associated Enduro Crawler - Free-Mods & Upgrades
 
I think the on-axle servo mount was released purely to provide an option for custom builds using the Element axles...

Not an uninteresting idea given the "hard" versions of the housings being so cheap...

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"

Any chance you could throw some links up for us to click and drool?

And thanks for the update on the wheel hex adapters! Been debating on those or SSD drum brakes.

Hex adapters are now available, can anyone confirm what size machined hardware is required, or are they included?

Not much info on them, I'm guessing no fasteners are included from the one picture they have and that they'll use machine screws either M2.5 or M3 as the stock fasteners are a course thread screw made for plastic.

Just a free tip. If you are going to upgrade to one of the optional hard plastic parts, as I did. Make sure you first thread a screw thread through the holes before you start mounting .... saves you a lot of stripped screws .... The hard plastic is really hard!

It works great, frame is a lot stiffer.

Not sure if it has mentioned here, but my rear axle bearings were sliding out past the screws that hold the bearings in. I put washers on each screw to help hold in the bearing. This may be due to the fact that I replaced the stock screw with SS and the SS may have a smaller diameter head. Just a heads up to watch out for your rear bearings.

Did you use one of the SS kits that are available?

I did not use a premade SS kit for the Enduro, but I did use Team KNK stainless steel screws. I buy their Monster Bag which has an assortment of different sizes of screws.

I used their Enduro kit, so maybe I should watch out for that. In fact, I already had that screw break out of it's hole. I wonder if that happened after a bearing came loose. Had my whole axle come out on me 30 seconds into my maiden. Didn't get off to a good start.

It sounds like that might be what happened. Once you add the 3mm washers the bearings will stay seated in the axles and not come out.

I did not compare the SS screws with the stock black screws, so I'm not sure if it is a screw issue or the screw hole placement issue. Either way the washers will keep that from happening again.

I will say, I use Team KNK screws on all of my rigs and I have had zero problems with any of their hardware or products.

I can confirm that this fits and makes the chassis a lot stiffer at the rear. Recon G6 Belgium tested. Take advantage of this for those with a 3D printer.

I asked them of they will as the Enduro. He wants to but is short in time. He is missing out on several 2018 and 2019 releases. Shame, his quality is good.

Re: New Associated Enduro Crawler - Free-Mods & Upgrades
 
if they are half as good as the weathered proline Toyota skin... wooooWEE!

meanwhile... where are the weighted knuckles and such? i want to keep mine with BTA so it still looks like an enduro, but with some heft down low. and somebody needs to do something about (enduro specific) interior...

soze 08-22-2019 01:56 PM

Re: New Associated Enduro Crawler - Free-Mods & Upgrades
 
I think SSD said they're coming out with weighted knuckles. I'm waiting for at least 2 sets. One for the RTR and one for the kit.

Scx10.2 chubs do fit by the way not sure if this has been mentioned.

+ bumpers fit

These hubs were loose on ar44 axles. So I pinched them a smidge in the vice and tightened them up. They do not wobble on my axles. After I run it I suppose Iíll double check to see if they have moved or loosened up.

I use a Dremel with a small grinding wheel and remove material where the uni is binding, or get a pair of SSD universals that already have the clearance. "thumbsup"
