    It's been a while since my boy's Rustler 4x4 had the Brushed system in it, but IIRC, it did have a high-pitched whine to it... even as the throttle was eased on (even before the truck started to...

    I'll state it up front: I have zero experience with the 1/16 eRevo. I do have experience with the (non-VXL) Rustler 4x4, the VXL Rustler 4x4, and the 1/8(-ish) eRevo2.0.

    I'd suggest that...

    My couple of pennies (tho it's worth noting that I have ZERO experience with the 2wd version of the rustler):

    The Brushed Rustler 4x4 (at least the one that I got for my boy last year) comes with a TQ (NOT TQi) Transmitter, and thus does not support the blue-tooth module nor TSM. The blue-tooth module was...
  8. Broke a rear toe-link.... will 5338A work?

    So, I broke a rear toe-link. Oops.

    Yep, it's what happens when you spin the 'revo around, and slam the back of the car (toe-link-first??) into one of the supports for a 'grind-rail' at the local...

    Thanks for passing it along to the rest of us. I agree that it's a great mod. I'm a little surprised that Traxxas does not ship slightly longer pins with the aluminum upgrade parts, but so be it. ...

    While I can't answer why the 'Outsourced RC' Guy felt that he needed a spacer (no, I did not read all 273 comments to see if it was addressed there or not), I can point out that he uses the 100mm...

    Based on what you are initially describing (in the first 6 sentences or so), that sounds like the "usual" sensor-less, brushless motor COGGING. I'm sure that there are hundreds of sites and videos...

    Nope, the GTR shocks are a larger diameter, and thus the springs from the "Ultra Shocks" (stock on the Brushed and Brushless Rustler 4x4) will not fit.

    When I did the upgrade to GTR shocks, I...

    You'll be stressing the motor and ESC more than was intended by the vehicle's designers. This 'stress' will likely manifest itself as increased temperature of both the ESC and the Motor. I believe...

    Thanks for the info! I've see enough of your videos to know that you are working your Revo a lot harder than I'm intending to (of course intent goes out the window as the vehicle tumbles ;-) ) so I...

    Yes, and all three 3S LiPo batteries listed are 135mm length that are needed to be able to fit into the Rustler 4x4.

    2857x - The 6400MAH 3S battery is "taller" than the others, but it does fit...

    The NON-VXL Rustler 4x4 (aka the "Brushed" version) has the same size battery tray as the VXL (and thus will "fit" the same size batteries).

    The reason for the distinction between the batteries...

    Many Thanks, Dcuda69!

    Traxxas 5161 plus a little dremel-work (to cut the longer E-Maxx pins down to Ruster-size, and then bevel the tip nice-n-smooth) got the job done quite nicely!

  23. Q for those that have switched to Aluminum C-Hubs

    I'm FAR from an expert, but that strikes me as a spot that you'd only want to use a dry lube (if any lube). Seems important to keep it clean, but as you pointed out, any kind of liquid lube is likely...
