Should definitely be toe-out at the front, NOT toe- in (though, the rear should have toe-in). As long as the replacement pieces have sexing identical to the stock parts, it souldn't alter the toe-in/out.

Has anyone reinforced their upper control arms with carbon fiber sheet? Mine have bent, which increased camber. I don't want aluminum arms, so I was thinking about screwing and/or epoxying carbon fiber to the top of the arms. Has anyone done something similar?

Thanks finally managed to check. It is toe out at the front. More than I expected. Will find out soon enough when the new body is finished. It really is a beautiful car to work on.

Don't need the body to check/adjust toe-in/toe-out. If you don't have an RC setup system/station, them just use large-squared graph paper.

Ha I knew that! I just mean that my post-refurb run will be soon. If I knew what angle the toe in should be I could measure it, but without that info it will be all down to the test drive.

Toe-in (rear) is probably best around 1-2° per side. Toe-out (front) is probably best around 1-3° per side. Exact amount will mostly depend on the terrain you'll be running on. My initial setting (after completing the majority of my rebuild) is rear 1.5° toe-in, front 2.5° toe-out.

Obviously, these can only be changed if you've replaced the stock solid turnbuckles with adjustable turnbuckles.

It's a solid axle vehicle, with solid driveshafts...toe in/out is not adjustable.

That is exactly why I asked. You stated that rear toe in is probably best around 1-2 degrees as if it can be adjusted.



But... You could probably alter rear toe ever so slightly by deforming the axle housing or building toe into an aluminum housing. I wasn't sure if you were getting that deep or not.

Sorry. When I made my "1-2 degrees" reply, I was visiting family (for Thanksgiving week) quite a distance from my house, couldn't actually check my Baja Rey, and was stating the "typical" toe-in for most off-road vehicles (ie. 2-4 degrees total). The Baja Rey already has toe-in, and it's already at a (near) 'perfect' amount.

I believe I just fried my Baja Rey ESC playing in the snow on 4S. No power coming to receiver or to the fan, but the led light is glowing red. The setup/programming button works and the ecu responds to programming. Anyone know what’s going on?

And what’s the best ESC to replace it with if it is in fact broken?

Don't think I can help in troubleshooting the stock ESC, except to say you should trying giving Horizon Hobby a call. As for your second question, I REALLY like the Castle Mamba X (which, if you read the entire thread, you'll discover a LOT of people have used). The great thing is, it pairs extremely well worth a number of sensored & unsensored motors (my motor of choice, the Tekin ROC412 HD).

Thank you! I'll consider the Mamba X route then. What about the Hobbywing EzRun Max6 160A?

I tried calling Horizon Hobby but after waiting for almost an hour I hung up.

I don't own a Castle Mamba X (yet) but the Hobbywing Max10 SCT is a solid drop in replacement for the stock ESC and I think it works better than stock.

The hobbywing sct esc is also a solid choice

Hi,

So, I'm at the moment rebuilding my truck but whilst I'm at it might as well change the diff oil. I have changed the read differential for the open diff but what's the correct weight for someone that will use it as a basher?
Thanks for the suggestions.

Maarten

Yoy will find a million diff recommendations. You could just fill em full of good bearing grease like it was from factory. Like Lucas red and tacky or maxima grease from a motorcycle shop.

Hey! So I had about a month and a few days of almost every day running the Baja Rey. After a few tweeks to the Shocks and learning to drive(last rc I had was when the rustler was brand new) it stopped nose diving all the time. So much fun even on 2s. Not touching a 3s. One day it just made this horrible grinding/crunching noise for a few seconds and went away...

Well battery was about dead so I packed it up. Checked it over and noticed the rear output had what I felt was ex essive play. Thought maybe it was it. But after stripping it completely down.... I think it was the fact a ton of dirt was all inside the trans housing and just got ground up for a few seconds.

So Started reading on fixes and upgrades.... Well a good chunk of change later...

Could not get the rear axle together and turning smoothly, found out the axles were bent.... Got new axles and smooth as butter.

Got it all together and was just bench running it...the trans is super loud... It is dry right now so not sure if greasing it is going to quiet it down or not... But Center driveshaft is bent.... And front axles are bent....

Has anyone ever bent these before!!!!??? Besides nose diving and a few tight turn rollovers it was never crashed hard. Always on soft dirt.
