    My brushless Rustler is twitchy as all get out. Really struggles to get the power down and spins the moment you give it throttle. Noticed that the 4x4s have 2.5* of toe in the rear where the 2wds...

    sounds like the symptoms I had recently when I exploded a diff under 3s power.

    They are strong enough to handle the power of brushless, but you'll want a different pinion/spur combo.

    For now, I ordered a stock replacement. Black this time, to change it up some.

    The FLM tranny looks awesome, I'm just not jazzed about the price while the world is falling to crap.
