How many pegs??

I've been filling ALL the holes with pegs and making sure that it's good and tight (not too tight)...

I've learned to listen for the sound of the slipping slipper clutch...it's kind of a squeaky squeal when the truck takes off - you can definitely hear when it's slipping too much....and burning up the pegs.

Thankyou easy and broncs nice one.Now i got probs,my Fantom has come back to me after a supposed new piston and sleeve.On inspection it was the same p/sleeve,liars!I run the mill and the exact probs re-occured but this time i had the added treat of the high speed needle assembly rattling off!.Someone at modelsports or schumacher's had threaded it so now thats knackered too.Moral is,never buy a fantom they are a POS!:mad:

I've hear bad stuff about fantom service. A guy on the traxxas board had a fantom where the head screws were over tightened and the head was messed up and fantom said it was his fault.:mad:
