    If you geared it up, the motor may have overheated, otherwise, I am not sure what the problem is. You should definitely get a new motor at this point since even if there was an identified problem, it...

    Remove the motor cover, loosen the screws that hold the motor on the motor plate (just enough so that the motor can shift around). Then shift the motor a bit farther from the spur gear. The pinion...

    The Hobbywing Axe is sealed better (almost nothing gets in it). I have seen others completely submerge it underwater, and not have a single problem with it. The Axe is also smoother.

    What battery are you running? Even if running on a low power battery, it should definitely be past the 20mph mark. Mines top at around 24mph using a NiMH. The brushes do look worn out (one seems...

    For 100mph, the Rustler would easily pop wheelies, since it is the shorter wheelbase along the Traxxas 2wd vehicle line. With that, I recommend getting a Slash chassis (the LCG conversion kit) or...
