Re: Any non clod 6x6s ?

Id love to make a jugg/txt one but think I'll just get a Konghead for now. They look relatively small but big enough to be fun.

Re: Any non clod 6x6s ?

Nice. Yeah,There was a company back in the day that offered a kit for the juggernaut but I dont think they were around long. I know what you mean about time. I bought a mini lathe years ago and never get around to really using it. More project ideas then I'll ever get to.

Re: Any non clod 6x6s ?

How did you modify the input shaft on the middle axle ? Or did you buy a kit back when they were available ? Input shaft would need to become an input/output shaft which is what I would need. Does anybody make them ? Nice fleet !

Re: MIP solid lock out 8mm axle shafts

I agree with others. I think the cvds would be much more popular but would love to see MIP make both. Any idea what their minimum lot size is ? I would be interested in some. I think the MIP cvds are stronger then RC4WDs. I have a brushless TXT I launched off a skateboard ramp many times and never b...

Re: tank lengths for monster tank

I couldn't find any info anywhere. Have you tried a tank forum or club?

Any non clod 6x6s ?

I remember years ago a company making a 6x6 conversion for the juggernaut.Wish I had bought one. Is anybody make anything non clod ? Ive seen RC4wd axles in the past that would work but I prefer to avoid them.

Re: Proline Brawler Rim Mounting On 6mm Axle Issue

When I ran into a similar problem I ground down the diameter of the socket.

Axle choices

What is the most durable axle ? I know it is a matter of opinion.I have had many TXTs and although they have heavy axles I have found the axles to be quite durable. I have launched my trucks off bmx ramps many times and shocks seem to be the weakest link.(granted I was using horizons aluminum diffs ...

Is RC4WD stuff any good ?

When rc4wd 1st started I bought some driveshafts for my txts and they were garbage. After swearing off them for a couple years I tried them again buying some ballend links. They had a ridiculous amount of play and were garbage. I got out of the hobby for some years and I see they are bigger then eve...

Re: *** Situation Seems Critical ***

Im new to the forum and just getting back into the hobby. I like the site but have found that facebook is very popular. I only joined facebook to buy some RC parts from a guy. I think part of the problem is people know there is a larger audience there so they use it as there go to. I have emailed co...
