Eustace Moore and his team at M.I.P. have done it again. Losi 5t owners should be very impressed. M.I.P. have released a quick fill refueling system so it can be done NASCAR style. “The MIP Quick Fill can dump a whopping 800 ml of fuel in under ten seconds (empty to completely full).” Continue Reading
MIP has come up with and idea to help you identify your MIP wrenches at a glance. Their new color coated Wrench Wraps, go around the shank of the tool and then it is enclosed inside clear heat shrink. The Wraps come in both Metric and Standard and when applied, you will be able to quickly distinguish the size by the color. In addition to that, MIP says that each new wrench coming from MIP will include a new wrap and shrink for the necessary wrench sizes.

Last week I gave my initial impressions of the MIP Race Duty CVD’s for the Traxxas Slash 4×4. This week I want to share my thoughts on the MIP Traxxas Slash 4×4 17mm Hex Adapter Kit. The kit will allow you fit standard 1/8th Scale Wheels on the Traxxas Slash 4×4 and it is made from 7075-T6 aluminum. Along with the Hex Adapters you also get 2 Crush Bearings which go inside the Rear Bearing Carrier in between the two bearings. These same Crush Bearings are also included with the MIP Race Duty CVD’s. Set up was easy taking less than 5 minutes per side, instructions can be found HERE. The thing that really stands out for me with this kit is the 2.5mm Grub Screws, they really allow you to tighten down the adapters. Overall I am very happy with the adapters and after I get some more runtime I will follow up. The adapters can be found for around $25-$30 depending on where you shop.
***Update Feb 11, 2014. I have put about 10 battery packs through these CVD’s and they are holding up great.***

My M.I.P. Race Duty CVDs for the Traxxas Slash 4×4 have arrived and I wanted to share some initial impressions. The M.I.P. Race Duty CVDS are available in Aluminum or Steel, I opted for the steel version. The package contains all the parts needed, grease, blue thread lock and instructions. Right off the jump this looks like it will be a smooth install.
These CVD’s are thick and appear well made, they have a varying diameter that ranges from approximately 4mm at the Outdrive down to 3.3 mm on the Axle end. Just for comparison purposes, the CVDs on the TLR 22SCT have a consistent diameter of approx. 3.3 mm. The overall length of the CVD itself, not including the outdrive or axle is approx. 78.6mm. The outdrive Continue Reading
