    Recommend small/portable air compressor?

    I've been digging through old threads and found a few links to air compressors but most suggestions appear to be at 1 gallon or more. Where I live, I don't have space for an air compressor tank so I've been researching if something like the below would work together. AmazonSmile: Kensun AC/DC...

    Senton BLX shock bleed?

    Hey everyone, fairly new to Arrma as a brand, and I'd like to know if there are any tricks or tips for bleeding air from the plastic body shocks on the 3S line. More specifically the Senton. I can't seem to get that last bit of air out to stop that "pop up" when the shock rod is pushed in fully.

    Nero maintenance/cleanup

    Hey guys, I just ran my Nero in some wet grass conditions and came back to a very messy cleanup. Just wondering how you guys clean up after a wet/grassy bashing session. I know the Nero is waterproof so is it safe to just hose it down? And should I be drying it out or just let it dry after...

    Servicing / maintenance questions on Nero

    ok - I am still new and learning about these trucks. I wanted to ask about what servicing involves. How do I service my diffs? What oil do I use? Hell - what do I do? I also understand that I need to screw tight a few screws when I get it Monday. Especially the steering arm screw that Afro...

    Cleaning R/C bearings

    Running in water - A lot of RTR's - including the Arrmas - are Water Resistant. Yes, I know Arrma and others say Water Proof, but that is not true. My fishing buddies have a saying - water will destroy anything that is not water, or fish. :) You can't stop water, you can only slow it down...
