    Yes, it's a VXL with stock gearing ratio (I'm using 32P gears though). Charger is an Onyx 235. I can't cycle the battery, but I do keep the battery at about 40% after letting it cool off after use.

    NiMH lifespan -- can no longer wheelie.

    I noticed that my NiMH battery, an Onyx 5000mah 8.4V which I got about 2 and a half months ago, doesn't have the kick it used to and I'm not longer able to wheelie with it even when it comes right...

    While it may have, unfortunately I can't say for sure -- I can say that I didn't notice anything out of the ordinary, other than maybe the fact that the replacement gear box pieces didn't mesh...

    5000mah battery life of 15-20 minutes?

    On my VXL w/ stock gearing ratio (both 48P and 32P gearing) I'm only able to squeeze about 15, 20 minutes tops out of my 5000 mah 7-cell NiMH batteries. Granted, I'm doing a ton of full throttle...

    Thanks guys, and I did see that gearbox, and like the replaceable arm links. It's about 3 times more expensive than the stock one though. But if it breaks again (I was riding the truck pretty hard) I...
  6. Gear box replacement: do I need to add grease/oil?

    After about 15 runs, my gear box is shot (the A Arm connector snapped). So I'm going to be replacing it today. My question is, with so few runs on the truck, can I just transfer everything to the new...

    Great! It looks like they're sold out though. Is there a "second best" tire alternative to the G-Locs?

    Thanks for the G-Loc recommendation. Being adequate off-road would be nice (close to the stock) but I think I'm probably okay with them not being good off-road since I've got some Masher 2Ks.

    I don't think so, I've been driving in an asphalt parking lot in 60-70F weather. The lot itself isn't in great shape, and there are some areas of pebbles here and there.

    I have been driving it...

    They might balloon, but I didn't really notice it. (Especially compared to my 2.8" Masher 2K's on the street... those things balloon like crazy.) So I don't mind that sort of ballooning.

    Tires like the stock ones that last longer?

    My stock tires (particularly the rear) are totally bare and even split from the wheel in some areas after no more than 10-12 runs. I liked their performance on the street and lack of...

    I've been using plastic 48p spurs and the 32P spur I bought was also plastic (the Jato).

    Sorry, wrong part #, I actually got the 2904.

    After replacing the spur again, I took a close look at my 25T stock...

    Thanks for the suggestion. I ended up going with the 3 piece 3094 set from Dynamite ($10 cheaper and I didn't need the extra piece.)

    Hey dad, I think I will get those screws. Do you use the long (3x10mm) or short (3x7mm) version?

    Instead of getting different tools, I was thinking about putting some blue Loctite or Permatex or Zap on the motor mounting screws. Any reason why this is a bad idea?

    Yes, I am using the included L shaped wrench. However when I've gone to loosen the motor, the screws have remained very tight. So I would imagine that means the motor didn't move?

    Two stripped spur gears in 10 minutes.

    Both times I set the gear mesh as per the manual (using a piece of paper) and the slipper clutch a 1/2 turn from full tightness. Yet both times within about 5 minutes...

    Thanks, I'll look into them. Anyone else have an opinion on the Mashers vs. Trenchers? Which one is less likely to cause the Rustler to traction roll on asphalt?
