    I think it's best to leave the truck the way it is. The size of the new Slayer Pro is much bigger than the original, so you may be switching out enough parts to build almost another truck. At that...

    The 3800kv will be faster by a noticeable amount, but not drastically.



    Not necessarily. If they both have the same size (the motor cans have the same length), then get the 3800kv, since they...

    Yes! That's probably the reason the VXL-3s ESC isn't working. Didn't realize it earlier. I think the motor is also 3s max, so you may need to get another combo if you are planning to run it on 4s.

    It depends on how many good reviews, I guess. If it has a bunch of positive reviews and has nearly 5 stars, I'd say it can't be too bad. I think the main reason that causes batteries to go bad or...

    Yes, it will with the right connectors. As long as the kv and specs are correct, any ESC and motor work.

    If you are going to use the same a-arms, you may need to cut or sand the arms and bulkhead to make them fit properly. (The Rustler has the same arms as the Bandit):

    GTR shocks are excellent, much better than the stock ultra shocks. I would not go overboard with the aluminum parts, especially the a-arms. Plastic absorbs energy by breaking or flexing, and aluminum...

    For the motor Kv, it determines the rotational speed of the motor at a given voltage. For example, a 3800kv motor running on a 7.4V battery would spin at 28,120 RPM (assuming it has no load), and a...

    If you are on a tight budget, you can go with a cheap ESC and motor combo. It's sometimes a hit and miss. But if you can, try to at least get an ESC from a reputable company (a $15 motor will work).

    Yeah, the new stronger servo drew too much amperage, which caused a brownout in the ESC. The Hobbywing 1080 is a great choice, like StijnH said. I have it on my Bronco along with a Holmes Hobbies 21T...

    GTR shocks are definitely better than the stock ultra shocks. They are very tunable and are much stronger. And yes, I think the lengths are correct. The oil they come with looks to be about maybe 30W?

    Me too, I'm just kind of by myself for most of the times. My neighbor has a Slash 2wd, but he doesn't really drive it, and I cannot find anyone at school that is interested in RC.
