Finished the cab, started on the hood. Going to try and finish it tomorrow. Wanted something different then the usual black and green with monster logos everywhere. Found a blue close to the original Baja rey colors. Did the center section of the hood chrome. Going to add some black and then the rest blue. Havenít decided on the rear fenders yet.

Just got a used rey it was always ran on 2s but I started running it with a 3s I've been having problems with it overheating. Anyone have a link for the parts to fix this? I'm guessing a bigger esc fan and adding a motor fan with heatsink would help...? Anything else I should do to keep from shredding the stock parts?

What pinion is on the motor? Probably the 13, might put a 10 on, that would be a good first step. You can download the manual from Horizon, ESC should handle 3s fine, but everything is enclosed, might want to add some ventilation to the motor...

Hello all,

I have a new BR, i've drove it twice, and i noticed a play in what seems like the center diff rear cup (where the rear drive-shaft connects to the center diff). I have around 2-3mm of play there. Is it normal?

Thanks

Nope. Probably a smoked bearing. Time to start the upgrades. Look into an SSD aluminum 3rd member or an aluminum housing if you have the budget.

Did some upgrades today, aluminium upper rear links and aluminium front shock tower.. So I was plugging in my light bar on my BR and f*cked up.. I broke the antenna off of the receiver now my truck only drives about 20 feet away then loses signal. Is there any way to re attach the antenna to the receiver or should I just buy a new reciever. Also do I need a new transmitter and receiver or can I bind the stock Spektrum DX2E to a new receiver if so can someone send the link? Thank you in advice.

If you're handy with a soldering iron, you can split open the receiver case and resolder the antenna. Honestly, you've got nothing to lose trying to solder it at this point. Otherwise a new SRS6000 ($80) is the cheapest AVC receiver that I know of. If you're not worried about retaining the AVC function, an SR210 ($30) will get the job done. Yes, you can just bind either to your dx2e.

My SRS4220 recently just quit on me. I like AVC, but couldn't swing a new one, so I just bought a cheap Radiolink R6FG ($16) and bound it to the RC3S transmitter ( about $40) I already had. It doesn't work as seemlessly as the Spektrum, but it still offers some assistance, and it's adjustable from the radio.

Does anyone know the length of the turnbuckles that come in LOS331003 (Tie rod set)? I just wanted to explore my options (perhaps some Lunsford goods?) before settling on the Losi part. I did find the Losi rod ends that would fit LOS334007 so any 4mm turnbuckle of the appropriate length should work.

I am using Traxxas Rustler tie-rods, they are the right length, you just need to add a 1mm shim at the spindle ball end for the height difference.

Mmm, but it's in the center diff side of the driveshaft, not the 3rd member. Is there an aluminum housing available for the center diff?

Thanks for the reply!

Sorry, I misread your initial post. I thought "rear cup" meant rear diff.

It's probably still a smoked bearing, though. I've heard that Losi bearings aren't the most durable. There is an aluminum center trans housing. Only place I've found it is eBay. I'm planning to get one in a few weeks.

https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?m...2F283443921977

When you do open the trans to check the bearings, make sure you spend some time heating up the rear outdrive to break up the threadlock that has most likely "locked" your driveshaft cup to the outdrive.
