Some help with my T-Maxx

Hey guys/gals

I made an inappropriate post earlier about a bad trade I just made as I was a little upset. The post has since been removed at my request.

Anyways changing all the negative to positive.

I have racked my brain on this thing, replaced the carb and a few other things yesterday and she ran, still needs a good tune though.

I replaced the slipper clutch friction pegs this morning and they wore out super fast. So I had a few washers lying around with a rubber ring on the inside which sort of serves the same purpose. I know this is not right but I needed to see it move. It does and it hauls ass.

Could the reason the friction pegs wore out so fast be due to the fact that the clutch may not have been tight enough from the get go? Is there alternatives to the stock set up?

Next issue is Steering, I know it needs to move a little to steer which is fine. I was only on the road and at high speeds I can see there being to much friction between the tires and the road surface. I will be heading out soon to try dirt. Is there an alternative to this stock set up as well? (Servo Saver) or am I just better off sticking to grass and dirt.

As far as acceleration goes, what should I look for, Does a T-Maxx Usually wheelie off the line? The guy I got this from said he changed the Clutch on the motor so from what I can see, the clutch looks like it is starting engage at a pretty early and low throttle stage.

I know I'm all over the place on this one but I have many bases to cover lol. Even general insight on larger nitro vehicles would be great as I'm used to smaller 2wd ones.

Thanks in advance.
