    My first car was a used Rustler XL5 which I converted to VXL and added Proline Trenchers, big bore shocks, 32p gearing and a few other Mods.

    Despite now having several other cars including 2...

    Like Blown94 says the Slash shafts fit right in. Part no 6582x

    I also upgraded to 32p gearing as the 48p kept on stripping.

    Cool truck.

    Mine's similar, but not as nice. I went to 32p gears as the 48p tended to strip. I use 2.8 trenchers and a smaller pinion but it still just wheelies everywhere.

    Broke a standard...

    Personally I'd avoid going Brushless. The drivetrain on the 3906 isn't up to it without making a significant number of other upgrades.

    There are some great guides of how to do this if you look...

    Do you have another motor you could try in order to establish if the ESC works?

    Do you know what the LiPo cut off point is on the ESC? Can you check the voltage of the cells in the LiPo?

    Hey that Arrma ESC is a good shout.

    You can get them with a motor package too. Also cheap.

    I noticed you can get the bigger 6S ESCs for a good price as well - would suit my E-Maxx......

    Well I have both.

    Hobbywing and cheap motor in one Rustler and VXL system in the other. I probably prefer the Traxxas system but both work fine.

    I got the VXL system thrown in free with an eBay...

    My Rustler VXL would strip gears on 3S.

    I switched to 32P gearing and no problems since.

    Stick with a plastic spur. It's a cheap part to fail. A metal spur will move the failure point to...

    I'm still using my 3905 without any issues having converted it to brushless several months ago.

    I didn't make any other changes at all. It has only been run on 4S.

    Yes, it's done by the clamping force of the screws. You're correct. You can dispense with the plastic retainer.

    There are loads of threads/videos on setting gear mesh but what works for me is:

    I wouldn't bother with NiMH either. Get LiPos. 2S in a Rustler is fairly tame but you'll get better run time and no drop-off. As gripdog said.

    3S is a riot! But you'll need a wheelie bar. You...

    Any Brushless system would do.

    You'll notice a big difference between running on 2S or 3S LiPos.

    My 3yr old can drive our Rustler reasonably well on 2S but I wouldn't let him loose on 3S as the...

    Yeah thanks guys.

    I've got a 1/8th Brushless system I can put in. Wanted the kids to practice a bit more with the brushed first but that's life. I guess.

    Brushed Motors Both Failed?

    Kids driving the E-MAXX yesterday. It's been great for my 3yr old running on half speed.

    Anyway, it suddenly stopped. ESC was still green but dimmed or went out when power applied. I figured the...

    Just get another stock chassis.

    I've got an Integy Chassis on one Rustler and stock on the other.

    The alloy one is much heavier. I wouldn't fancy bashing with it.

    Stock one's are dead cheap....

    Thanks RC N3RD. Will do.

    Anyway, had my first ESC fire.

    Ran through a few puddles and maybe the cheapo Racerstar ESC isn't too waterproof?

    Anyway, smoke began pouring out of the car so I...
