    The fact that the LHS owner doesn't know that they can sell them now is troubling. My LHS let me know they got the silver in, still haven't made it over to see it.

    If youíre using this for bashing, as I imagine most users will be, the fronts do a good job of protecting the shocks, mounting screws and arms from rocks, roots, and other things.

    This all the way. It's amazing how much you can change the handling characteristics using the spacers, and different holes positions available on your stock slash.

    I like my SMC battery also, for $70, you could almost get 2 SMC packs with plenty of punch for brushless later. Plus they'll be lighter, and your slash quicker now.

    You may have switched your ESC into lipo mode. Find the manual for the XL5 esc, and follow the steps carefully to make sure you are in nimh mode, and then try calibrating the throttle.

    good luck!

    1. Maybe you are over-tightening the nut
    2. You have rigid aluminum parts, the plastic ones would give some flex, now they are all rigid, something has to flex.

    Just a couple thoughts, good luck.

    Probably this if it's a 2wd.

    I'm assuming you mean you hear it when stopping/ slowing down.

    Check for any tiny bits of rock or debris stuck in the spur gear.
