    Sorry I guess times have changed and ribbed tires are now rare at the 2.8 size. I swore Arrma used ribbed tires on a few models but all seem discontinued as far as I am finding.

    Traxxas tires will glue up to RAID rims but you will be able to see the outer rim seat in the tire. I have seen it done without issue but I can't say I would be happy with it on my rigs. So it might...

    You will get good steering from a pair of ribbed front tires. Something like these.

    I would spend most of the budget on a good ESC and then get a cheap amazon motor. Then as you drive that setup save up for a better motor. After you drive the rig you will slowly get a better idea of...

    The only 3s I have bought for my MERV was a Venom battery. I settled on it because at the time the price was only $19.99 but when SMC dropped their MERV battery the price shoot up.

    You can run just about any motor you want. The limits come up when you try to go fast. A weaker motor will need a lot of gearing to not overheat. The VXL system would work if you gear it with a top...

    Like you said you are not racing. It won't hurt anything but the geometry will be alittle off but nothing serious. You will break a front a-arm soon enough to make use of them. :)

    I have several Venom batteries. They are not bad packs but they have the highest failure rate of all my packs. Usually from single cell voltage drift. So I would not suggest them unless you are...

    I will always run a front sway bar on my Slash. I do too much off-roading to bother with the rear sway bay, plus I don't think the rear suspension really works well in conjunction with a sway bar.

    I suggest the same mod to every new Slash 2wd user. Get the equal offset front a-arms from RPM before you buy any wheels.

    The chassis could be slightly warped, the screw holes for the rear shock tower in the chassis might even be slightly misaligned. As long as you can get the body on and it doesn't force the body to...

    For these 1/16 scale Traxxas rigs the RPM stuff is awesome. On the 1/10 scale stuff it can bend under the static weight of the rig. Not on the 1/16th stuff it holds up great and can even play in the...

    The rear diffs most commonly strip because the rear diff housing is weak and allows the ring and pinion gears to separate. This chews them up real fast with an audible clicking noise. No matter how...
