Are those OFNA 9.5 Buggy shocks on there? I used to run those on my savage and Unlimited Engineering modified ones on my tmaxx back in the day.Got a Senton roller/chassis with some other parts needed from Jennys RC plus parts I had on hand and worked on bulding up a Senton (then ran it today). (Did start last night though so technically worked on last night and today). The 4X4 line is pretty easy to work on.
I know they are Ofna shocks not sure which model though. I had no idea what they were and what they were for an how long the shocks were when I bought the first set on Ebay that I have on my Granite. They looked like quality shocks and they were cheap the seller just labeled the description as rc car parts. The second set a seller just labeled them as rc shocks (I knew what they were and bought them). They just happen to work great on the Granite and Senton (IMO) the stock shock springs will even work. The rears are too long so I added a nylon spacer on the shock shaft to get it close to stock length. Used shock bushings form a Duratrax Evader on the top of the shocks to mount them. About $30 got me new to me shocks for my Granite and Senton.Are those OFNA 9.5 Buggy shocks on there?

No. It plugs in parallel with the main power leads between the esc and the connectors. I just cut a bit of the insulation off the wires a little bit out of the esc and wrapped/soldered/heat shrinked it there.Dumb question, but does the Cap pack just plug into the second battery connector on a 6S rig?
So if I used the second plug that would be in series? I need parallel. Got it. ThanksNo. It plugs in parallel with the main power leads between the esc and the connectors. I just cut a bit of the insulation off the wires a little bit out of the esc and wrapped/soldered/heat shrinked it there.
Sssshhhh. Don't tell @bicketybam. He thinks cleaning and maintaining bearings is silly and a waste of time. It'll be our little secretEvery 20 packs or so, I do complete tear downs on my Arrmas and replace each bearing whether they need it or not. I finally sat down tonight and sorted all the good sealed bearings from the bad ones, and cleaned the ones worth keeping.

Out of 72 bearings, these were the few that made the stringent cut (smooth as butter) to get re-oiled and be put back into service.
