Cut the dogbone in half with a dremel cut off wheel and stick each end into a 3/16" roll pin of the desired length. You'll have to hammer them in, but they won't budge!

is building your own trans worth it? Looking at the parts list, for say the stealth... it would come to over $60? same with the stampede... can't you find them on here from tammy's or such for like under $50 shipped?!

You can buy them her for $7+/pair....

I just ordered 4 sets for both of my TLT's. The one thing you will have to do is ad any type of spacer because of the extra length between the pin in the shaft and the spindle.
Are these shafts stronger than the stock TLT shafts? Thanks.

Hey, just to let you know, i use 1/4 in by .49 wall tube for the links, tap it with 4mm and use 4mm socket cap screw. Hope that works.

I found out a quicker way to lock the TLT axle diff.
Its reversible if you ever want to undo it.
You simply take one of the three spider gears and
stick it between the other two spider gears.
It won't be mounted on a shaft, sorta floating
between the other two gears.
When you mount the halves back together it
locks the rear diff without the mess of epoxy.

This will result in damage to portions of the spider gears. I broke a few of the cross-shafts. It would be best to leave the three there and get an additional spider gear and jam it between two.

Nope, they are actually weaker, made from crappy pot metal. Stick with the TLT Max Climber shafts, a bit better than the originals.

You can also use E-Max steering turn buckles for a beefer off the shelf alternative. See below:

I just found my Associated spring rate chart and figured I'd share it's info. With these springs you will need to get the Associated's spring spacer kit as they are slightly smaller ID than the traxxas springs. they still fit over the Traxxas shocks, but just barely:

This is really awesome, I am trying to figure out spring rates so I can figure out how to reduce torque twist.

Do you have some for losi springs...?

Default Newbie and a xrc

Im looking at building a xrc chassis out of a completed TLT is there any thing major other than the axles that I will be using.Cause a guy has 2 completed axles on ebay and thinking maybe of sparing my TLT the tear down.
