More Traxxas Rustler VXL video clips

Have another few video clips to share from the other day, unfortunately I couldn’t post them sooner as I didn’t have the internet bandwidth available to me to uploaded them. So it had to wait until I got home.

Hope people enjoy, I know I certainly enjoy using the car. Although managed to break a drive shaft in the last few days, so the Rustler VXL is out of action. Going to order a set of steel drive shafts, as the standard plastic ones just don’t handle the power produced from the 11.1V 3S LiPo.

Traxxas Rustler VXL Brushless

Finally with the assistance of my nephew I’ve managed to obtain a few video clips of the Traxxas Rustler VXL. Below is a capture from the first video footage we obtained.

Below is a video clip of a Traxxas E-Revo Brushless 1/10 Electric monster truck, it was taking in the last few weeks. The remote control is my neighbors, unfortunately I don’t have any clips of my ones just yet. But soon I will. Enjoy.

Parcel 2 did arrive

My other box of parts did arrive. It arrived 2 days ago. I’ve since then managed to fit out the Rustler VXL with it’s street tyres and even managed to have a bit of a run.

Have decided to get 2 x 3S Lipo batteries for it, and a new charger for the new batteries.

My wife and I had our 2 electric cars out lastnight, while my neighbour also had his electric e-revo out too. So we had 3 of them running up and down the street. Certainly was fun, even had a few spills. My neighbour even managed to break 2 bearings in his rear diff. Lucky enough I had 2 of those bearings as spares, so he was soon repaired and ready to use it again today.

Parcel 1 of 2 arrives.

My parcel that shipped from the states was 2 boxes, unfortunately only 1 of the 2 arrived today. Here is hoping that parcel number 2 of the batch arrives tomorrow.

I have 1 tracking number for 2 parcels, so the fact I got one and not the other at the same time is annoying.

EDIT: looks like the email with tracking numbers only showed 1 such tracking number. If we log on to the providers site, it shows 2 parcels and 2 tracking numbers.

Traxxas

In other news, I ordered a Traxxas 1/16 E-Revo Brushless VXL. This unit will give me something to use while I do running repairs on the Traxxas Revo Nitro truck I have.

The Traxxas Revo I have needs some attention. It was stuttering a bit while idling today and then would stop. I think either the gearbox needs attention or possibly the clutch. Will soon find out once I get time to pull it apart.

Looking very forward to getting the new E-Revo electric R/C car though. It should provide some use without the hassle of always doing lots of repairs which the Nitro truck seems to always require one way or another.
