    my electric duratrax evader wont go forward or backwards without a push start and I dont have a clue why. its my first car so i dont know much about it. I thought it may be because i needed to clean it but it wasnt that so im stumped.

    Your motor may need new brushes and/or your commutator may need to be trued. If your commutator has grooves worn in it then it needs trued. If you can't find anyone to true it for you, then you can buy a new motor for $17 from Towerhobbies. If your commutator is good, then you probably need new brushes. Usually it is the brushes you need more than the other.

    Ok Im new on this forum im well known in a different one but they are clueless... I recently bought a Used Duratrax Overdrive.. It a pretty sweet truck.. But I cannot get the two speed to be set right.. When I checked the screw on the clutch was in all the way.. So I back it out 5.5 turns like the directions said and it still doesnt work yet there is another screw and i dont know what it does... I dont know if it holds the shoes closer or what I just need some advice because I challenged someone to a race in about 4 days....

    HEY XEROX whats up... The two speed is not a direct fit in the MT2. But it will fit. :) you will need new drive cups and the rs4 trans shaft. You may need new dogbones since the ones on the old MT are a little Bigger. But that should do it. We have a guy running one now with the two speed and it flies with the new T-15.

    Twitch: No difficulties at all mine has an rs4 rtr3 trans in it and does about 65 MPH. With a little modding in other areas too. Be advisied that running it off-road will make for a shorter trans life because of dirt and debris. But if you don't care have fun and keep a spare first gear one-way on hand.

    hey guys
    i was just woundering about how can i fix my differentials in ther front and the back because it always breaks because the ring gears keeps breaking because the drive cups are too loose and i can't find a way to fix it and i even tryed to put spacers and it didn't work at all so then it broke again and also everytime i try to tune m7y engine it goes really hot and a lot of smoke comes out and i thought that it might be because it might have an air leak i don't know so if you can help that would be great thanks.

    Hello all! I recently bought a Traxxas Stampede (electric) and have been looking for aftermarket parts for it. One member directed me to Towerhobbies. They had more parts than the traxxas web site but mostly spares, not a lot of performance parts.:(I was wondering if anyone else had any suggestions of where to look or should I buy a bunch of aluminum stock and make my own;)TIA
