    It sounds like the slipper clutch is loose (the high-pitch whine). Try tightening the nut on the slipper a bit.

    Ch1 on the receiver is for steering, Ch2 is for throttle. As long as the servo and ESC are plugged in the correct spots, the LEDs can go in any remaining open...

    I think the Defender has no shock oil, which is why it's bouncy. Just remove the shock oil and it should look more realistic. You can try lighter shock oil weights as well. I use 10W, but it is still...

    10mm adapters would put a lot more stress on the wheel bearing, so the bearings may wear out faster. You might just as well get the Wide Maxx kit.

    For the pin, have you tried pushing (or hitting) it with something (a hammer maybe)?

    If you can't find it, you can either sell it without the pinion (most people probably won't mind, since they can just buy it at the same time while they get your car) or get a few cheap pinions from...

    Just a random thought I have, but has anyone tried running on 6s using three 2s LiPos (or 8s using four 2s LiPos)? Just an idea... :wacko:

    I'd say probably not without modifications. If you are going to, you may need to relocate the servo to the very front of the car with a servo relocator. The stock TRX-4 XL-5 HV ESC will not work with...

    The way I see it is that fast charging is kind of for when you are in a big hurry. If you have the time always try to use balance charge so that all the cells in the LiPo have the same voltage. You...

    If it's set properly, I don't think the slipper pads would crack and break. If you can't seem to fix that, then the aluminum slipper pads or an upgraded slipper clutch should help with that.

    I think the MERV may be too small for snow. I have seen people put paddle tires in the rear, with skis on the front of 2wd Traxxas vehicles.

    I'd say the 2wd is much more agile and maneuverable, while the 4x4 stays more planted on loose terrain. IMHO, 4x4 isn't always superior to 2wd. If a 2wd is tuned right, it can perform better than a...

    Yeah, the discharging function is almost nonexistent, but if you leave it on for long enough (8-12 hours), it will discharge to storage.

    Yeah, the charger will discharge it, but it will be very slow. I have the EZ Peak Plus (for 4 batteries lol), and it takes forever to discharge, so I sometimes just charge up to storage. :wacko:
