  1. Hey Guys, I ran into two maintenance issues. First off, I keep breaking my MST SP1 +3 wheels. I broke 3 wheels in winter, in a parking garage, which was probably due to the cold weather. But then, two more wheels snapped in hot weather. One broke after repeated small impacts while doing wallruns. Due to my own stupidity, basically. But one broke without any reasonable explanation. All of them snapped were the spoke connect to the hub thingy in the inside, even though they're quite beefy. (For MST wheels at least) Also, last week I started charging ne of my Yuki Brainergy LiPos, left the room, came back after a few minutes, and found the charger (robbe Power Peak Uni7) flashing it's LED. Pulled the Plug, opened the bag, LiPo is swollen. Polarity and and balancer were all connected properly. Then, I charged my other LiPo, and it took several hours longer than usually, Eventually, I just disconnected it, even though the charger wasn't finished with it. It wasn't hot or swollen or anything out of the ordinary, so I chucked it in the car, drove two really long sessions without the battery dying. Took it out, and Surprise! Swollen! The battery is mounted on a custom aluminum battery tray, which has flat screw heads protruding from it (about one milimeter, maybe 1.5). However, both batteries show no sign of damage were the screws are. The lower edges seem slightly scuffed, though. Seriously, what am I doing wrong? What's the dealß Bad plastic in the wheels? Broken charger? Bad luck? Please stop my descent into insanity, this is wrecking my nerves, as well as my bank balance.
  2. Hi, first time here on the forum so go easy on me I own a lovely "Tamiya Scania R620" truck with the "MFC-03" and a "Futaba T8J" radio. Currently everything is built and connected but im struggling to find/get all functions to work. Things like "forward, backwards, selecting gear 1-2-3, start, horn, flashing lights, indicators" works fine. But when trying to get all other things to work its a hit or miss. Been reading all the manual for everything 3 times but biggest problem seems to find a function and then add/map it to a radio button. I found this video that seems like the perfect match, but havent been able to contact the owner. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sKwpj18tTcE Please, anyone out there with any advice how to map the radio buttons? Thanks and best regards. \Chris.
  3. Hi I recently have been fixing up my Brat, which was in a bit of a state. Yesterday, I got the electrics up and runing, and took it out for a run. All seems to be fine. The only problem is the rear axle. On the left hand side, it keeps poping out. I have tried gaffer-taping the joint boot to give it a bit more strength with the axle bone, but still no use. I also tried some cable ties around the joint boot, but it keeps happening. It usually runs fine on tarmac, but the moment it has any bump, it disconects from the rear suspension piece (far left side) and pops out. So, has anyone else has a similar problem and manage to fix it? While this may seem a bit stupid, the Joint Boot on the left side is torn in one place, and the end next to the gear box has been frayed/torn up slightly. Is it worth replacing it? Thanks in advanced
