Arms repalcement - best option ?

Postby enggmaug » Fri Dec 29, 2017 5:18 pm

Hello,

I own a modified V1. One of the modifications was for the CF arms from TrickLaser. I have the old gen, with rubber band and traxxas balls.

One of my Traxxas rotule has some play, and I bought a bag of 10 for replacing it.

However, I do wonder, considering I have the original V1 cheapstakes What are my options, what are they worth, and for how much ?

I could replace only the failing rotule ball, or the arms, or cheapstakes arms and plateform.

I'm open to suggestions.

Thanks a lot, and happy hollidays.

At this point you'd be better off getting the injection molded carriages and the ball & cup arms.

Thank you Geneb. I was expecting this reply somehow.

Well, I suppose my wife won't be happy...

Geneb, by the way, If I follow your advice, shall I also replace the platform, or could I keep my old one ?

If memory serves, there's a new effector platform included with the arm kit.

With spouses (spices?) it's usually a lot easier to apologize afterwards than it is to get permission before hand. ;)
