I may use the idea for just covering the worm gear housing, as it would definitely bind up my links:

if you round the sides and hook it onto the links it will allow rotation. mine are glued just because I am lazy.

I don't mean to brag, but I think my truck defiantly has a little more twist than yours! by about -3 or -4 inches. O.o

Yeah, dont let anyone tell you there is no such thing as too much flex.
There is - I found out.

so i did a spot check read pg 1, 5, 7, 11, 12... have to take kids to hockey then i will read ALL..

I see great ideas here for adding weight, fans, batteries, bb's and all...
i got a ton of parts already...
any of these make sense to use or are they all just gonna give me just better looks for it?
like said i got a great deal on a 2 micro deal so all these came with it... just looking at if there is anything performance beneficial... or aluminum does add weight...

Was posted in a thread, think it should go up here as well..
ETRL Mega Threads tire mod!
The Toy:
John Deere Monster Treads Value 3 Pack

They are commonly John Deere and can be found at Fleet farm relatively easy, Most other large stores carry them, but the inventory I found was limited.





The Parts:

You need to cut the inside out of the losi tire, but instead of turning it around to widen the tire, just toss the rest in a parts bin.


You need to trim the center of the Toy tire so it clears, I drilled out the entire center, so I can remove the tire without having to break it off.


With a little super glue and pressure it pops into the toy's tire damn near perfectly and so long as the glue dries centered the tire wont wobble or do anything like that. It's awesome how perfect it fits....


Final product.


you CAN cut out all the ribs on the toy tire, and shoe gooe the tire to the rim so it has more flexibility, but I ended up not using these very long because It was too easy to beat my dad's stock trekker... by a land slide! Terran he worked to get over and up I just jammed the throttle and went over it like a speed bump. Not sure how well miniqlo tires do myself, but I found for 10 bucks this mod doubles as a super wide mod too, it was worth the effort to at least have done it.

Only thing I've done different than what I've seen is this.

Stopped it from hitting/high centering.
Next thing is bent lower links.

I've found simular at a local junk shop using phone batteries. (2 2.4 packs setup to be a large 4.8 )
it was about ~1200mah
and heavy.

(testing to make sure it worked, I didnt actually run them upright like this! )

Flipped the trans 180deg , top plastics 180deg , esc in batt holder , on/off switch removed , had to shave esc case were switch wires used to come out for it to fit in batt holder , also small notch in top of batt holder plastic to clear the wires coming out of the esc , all wires tucked under top plastic plate , the "winch" actually holds itself In place under the front lower body pins with its own tension

Just the typical mods.
*widened wheels
*Danally 100 turn
*spring "mod"
*miclaws
(Don't laugh at my weights it works in a pinch)
I need more low though. CG is still extremely high due to the larger diameter tires.

Orrrrrrr an awesome chassis.. yea that.

I can see that many here are running with a non stock esc and receiver? Care to share where can i pick one up? Ive burnt my stock esc and getting a new stock esc is a little expensive.

I look forward to answers on this one. I plan on getting a Trekker from Jim this summer and I know he has stock esc's. Not sure about rx's though. Unless they are all in one. I am brand new to these so no clue but I'm reading and reading.

Hope that helps.

Too many to list, but one of my favorites is the stainless driveshafts and modded HR shocks:

Default Micro "beef tubes"/ metal axle inserts

Only spot of the micro crawler/trekker I have problems with is where the front c-hubs mount to the axle housing. The plastic is very thin, and after a lot of hard use they don't hold anymore and a bunch of play develops between the c-hub and axle. If you've had this problem or just want to bullet-proof your rig, this will help.

I used a 13mm long piece of 3/16" thick wall tubing.


Ream out the center of the axle so the tube is a press fit. Be careful not to damage where the bearings sit.


Use a vice or clamp to press it in.



If you press the tube in far enough for the outer bearing to fit, the holes you'll need to drill are at the very end of the tube. To avoid this I used a bearing that is .5mm narrower. You could also use a micro t wheel bushing and file a bit off.



Drill holes in stock location with a small (1mm-ish) bit. Or to clock hubs and spindles, file the tabs off and drill new holes. I tapped the holes with some cutting fluid and a fresh screw.
The screws will now bite into aluminum and plastic instead of just the plastic axle housing. Way more secure, no more wobble.
