    Apparently the older adapters didn’t have the limiting tab on it like the new ones do - you probably have an older one. I spoke with the guy at the Traxxas retail store and they said they were told...

    I run nothing but 3s traxxas batteries, although I do have the 2s traxxas batteries as a backup (bought them before the 3s). One thing to note is that while you can run lipo batteries in parallel...

    IMO, the two biggest upgrade that will give you the most bang for your buck on a new merv is the center diff and Hot Racing sway bars.

    Oh man, I am curious how this goes, been thinking of that 540xl motor myself. Very curious about the gearing.

    The first thing I would confirm is that all wires are secured well, especially those around the esc and motor. In general though, it should cut out before it heats to the point that it dies (not...

    Welcome to the forums!

    I'll first say this is actually the Nitro Rustler forum vs the electric Rustler which you are referencing - you will probably get better support if you post in that forum.

    It has one screw that goes into the ESC fins - the wires holds it further, but it’s pretty sturdy even against jumps.

    It's not entirely wrong, but the sway bars do have different thicknesses, so you get to choose how much articulation occurs and how much sway-dampening can happen. I went with medium and am happy -...

    I found that I couldn't drive 3s very long without some sort of fan/heat sink. Simple heatsinks didn't really do the job either for extended 3s runs. So I could plug and play without worrying at...

    It's normal - my ultimate did the same thing out of the box - the sound comes from the center drive shaft (which is splined) clanking around. There is also a slight clicking from metal gears, but...
