    If you're going to upgrade the shocks, might as well skip the Big Bores, and go for the GTRs...not that much more money, but MUCH better shocks. Might also suggest replacing the stock plastic motor...

    That's cool...sorta-kinda reminds me of "The General Lee". And, thanks for the RPM case update. Just curious, but, to on the LE, does the motor have a 1/8" or 5mm shaft (since it doesn't say on any...

    The simplest answer...and, the TRUTH...is, there is NO "best". Asking that question would be like asking what the best motor, or ESC, or tire is. It's ALL subjective, and (quite often) depends on...

    Let us know if it fits...and whether, or not, any mods need to be done. I'm seriously considering the Copperhead for one of my builds, but part of that depends on how well it fits into the RPM Mamba...

    If I go with a Castle motor, the 2400Kv is also what I'm considering. Others worth considering: Tekin ROC412 HD 2300, Tekin Pro4 HD 2500, Castle Creations 1512-2650, or (last resort) Team Brood...

    It's for this very reason that I REALLY like the Castle ESCs (especially the Mamba X...though, I'm seriously considering the new Copperhead 10 for the Ryft Kit). Their ability to start in sensored...

    They already took too long. I ended up spending the money on the soon-to-be-released Axial Ryft Kit, instead.

    True...I saw that. Although, at the same time, the Losi & AE offerings (and, I'll assume, Traxxas' offering) are all 2S-3S, and all the races I've seen ONLY allow 2S...unless they aren't actually...

    In that you'd need the TQi Tx, and a TQi-compatible Rx, you are correct...but, you'll also need more, starting with the Traxxas Link Bluetooth module, which goes inside the TQi Tx. You will also...

    You're lucky...and, one of the (relatively) few. The problem isn't 'heat', or the RPMs...it's the torque. The stock driveshafts were really designed for 2S, although they can still deal with 3S IF...

    Swap any 2 of the 3 wires between ESC & motor. That should fix the forward/reverse problem.
