    Tape your tires and put a decent bead of silicone caulk on each part of the bead. Tighten them down evenly and be careful not to strip the screw hole, which can happen VERY easily. The caulk will...

    I believe it is a Hobbywing WP SC8



    I think I am running 54/18. Too bad I didn't see this a few hours ago because I could have checked when I had it all torn apart to fix the damage I did when...

    MIP Xduty, Tekno M-6, or X-o1. Can't go wrong any of them. Traxxas makes steel CVD's that are supposed to be pretty good too and will also fit with your aluminum carriers and hubs. Mip is the only...

    I'm though I have used 54/22 before.....but now I am doubting myself because I'm not sure what spur gear I had in at that time. It's very possible I was running my 50t spur at that time because I was...

    Looks great. It's a real blast flying down the road at 55mph. I haven't done any speed runs in a while and it is making my trigger finger itch. It looks like you have the Castle 2650kv in there, and...

    You should be able to run the highest gearing possible with a 2200kv motor on 3s. If you are just buying pinions get a few different ones just to be safe. I believe you start running into fit issues...

    I am assuming you are having this problem when the truck is on the ground. If this is occurring when the truck is in the air with the wheels off the ground just ignore my post because it will not...

    I never saw the thread, but I have to agree...they don't last long and they are very cheaply made. I haven't used my telemetry in a while and when I went to check it yesterday I realized my temp...

    you have to go into the garage in the app and select telemetry setup (I think that's what it is called) and hit refresh. That should reload all the sensors you have plugged in. Make sure you have...

    I would hope it would be WAY BETTER than the SC8 since it cost over $100 more. For an extra $100 (or more) it should toast my bread and make me coffee. Since it doesn't do either, I wonder what it...

    I used very similar lipos in my Slash way back when I wanted to test 3s. I had 2 2200mah 3s lipos laying around from a heli I no longer wanted so I put them in to see what it would do. They powered...
