    Are you confirming that the fan is actually running? I ran my Maxx on the beach the other day, and it gets locked with sand and little pieces of grass. Running a lot of full throttle on 4S with stock...

    I'm thinking about adding an E-Revo 2 also. I had a 1 and even on 4S, I found the diffs to be an issue. I liked it a lot better, once I replace the car body with a vintage truck body and removed the...

    It blows my mind to see all the damage people do to their trucks. Must be really choppy on the throttle control.

    I programmed in some steering sensitivity (expo) and programmed out some of the...

    rcdabbler: Good luck with the alternative body. (it's a latch-on, so you'd have some major adapting to do for anything else)

    *bump*

    Now that Maxx has been out for a while, what's your experiences?

    Looking at Pro-Line, they have 1/8 scale tires with the 17 mm hexes the Maxx uses that are generally too big in outer...

    *bump* A couple of data points:

    - The Onyx 3S 5400 50C soft case fits with a lot of room. It needs padding on the top (even with the spacer in the top bar) and in front or behind. I don't believe...

    Jake - 3200 to 3800 KV is better for the Slash than something higher. It's 2WD and has smallish tires. Too much power is wasted. You definitely don't need a 1/8 scale system. A 1/8 scale motor would...

    Got mixed up where I was, sorry.

    Whining sound can also come from gear mesh being too tight. Brushless ESCs don't normally whine. (except the cooling fan)

    I forgot to address that. I have a Maxx now; had an X-Maxx before.

    X-Maxx is nice because it is big enough that it rolls over grass very easily without bogging it down as much. However, it...

    Going down in spur gear size is actually higher gearing; gearing it more for top speed and losing some torque in the mix. To gear down, you would go down in pinion gear size and/or up in spur gear...

    That noise is not the motor, but the ESC circuit. It's normal at low speed for brushed motor controllers.
  15. Where does the Rustler 4x4 fit in to the whole scheme of things?

    I don't have one, but I have a St4mpede VXL. I looked at one in the LHS the other day, and my impression is that it's a 1/10 truggy.

    I think it's too heavy to be a 1/10 buggy.

    There's really no...

    What is the flaw?

    I'm thinking Traxxas set it up for their own gears, and that folks buy gears from other suppliers, it doesn't quite work right, and they get upset about it. No?

    Keep the Rusty and get a Maxx. The Rusty is simple to maintain and pretty light. Very fast on pavement, and pretty flat handling, compared to a Maxx.

    Thanks for taking the time to illustrate that for me. I'm going to try it. If I can get expo going properly, I'll probably just leave the radio system as-is.

    How is it done? Buy the Bluetooth module, or is there a reasonable way to do it through the LED and Multi-Function Dial?

    If so, I'll try it too!

    I think the Wide kit and steel axles aren't necessary, but I think steering expo is! Therefore, the upgrade is a computer radio. (Assuming you can go without self-righting and TSM)

    Did you decide yet?

    Ultimate Slash - Not replaced by Maxx; keep it. This is a good street car and good for smoother offroad as well.
