    I have larger 1/8th trucks as well as a stampede 4x4 and one of my better bash locations is an hour drive, then a 1/4 mile walk from the road. So I tend to take a lot with me. I also have to go...

    I'm guessing my v1 diffs lasted because I dialed the punch down quite a bit and had a general habit of rolling on the throttle. I never blew a diff in my v1. I'd replace the bearings once a year, but...

    I use white lightning clean ride chain lube. It's wax in a thin liquid that evaporates after a few minutes then leaves a thin coat of wax on everything. It doesn't attract dirt like oil/grease does....

    I use the Stick by loctite as well as the blue gel from permatex. Both take quite a while to cure, the gel tends to stay gummy for a long time, which works well enough for most things. It does...

    Kind of sounds like my motor I had in mine, just a bit louder. It howled at WOT. My motor/esc first came from my v1 erbe (mxl-6s/castle 2200kv). The esc died on the 3rd 6S run in the 2.0 chassis. I...

    Doesn't matter much where you drill the holes, but the length of rope is what controls the angle, so if you left extra, you could adjust it however you want. I'd put the rope holes at the middle or...

    Get the 2.0. The 1.0 can't really deal with 6S as well.

    2.0 upgrades off the top of my head:
    front/rear diffs are larger/more capable
    center diff exists

    Depending on how far you want to carry them and if you want a long or wide ramp, you can use 2'x3' 1/4" plywood, couple hinges and some rope. I think mine are 24x36x1/4... I should measure them as it...

    The motor in front of the trans is a bit of a perk as far as I'm concerned, especially for electric. Moves more weight towards the front, which you kind of need when going for speed.

    Changing front/rear won't affect wheelies much. Thicker in the rear usually allows for straighter wheelies when they happen, but that's about it.
