    Haha, Rocket those old Trinity motors had so much style and pulled like crazy. Kinda miss the flashy style of the 90’s RC can motors. The rustler is definitely a fast on brushless, but with the...

    From what I’ve read if you either seal your diff or buy a sealed diff you can cut down on the pull when using brushless power. I’ve not tried it, but may need to once I open it up to 100%.

    That’s a good point as it’s pretty easy to go brushless (motor, esc, pinion and sour gear). For what you get on an xl5 version it’s a great value. And as MAC FAB stated one of the largest upgrade...

    Cool, I’ve used HW brushed ESC’s and they’ve been pretty reliable. I like the VXL motor as it’s super simple and cheap to re-bearing. I’ve got an extra motor so may do a mix then.

    I’ve thought about that as well, start with a black frame and work up from there, but the pricing on the vxl makes it too tempting. Did you go vxl eventually or stay with the xl5 electronics?

    Wow this thing is wicked fast and ran pretty good on the factory tune. Worked a little on adjustments and kept a 240 temp even without the windshield cutout mod for more air flow. No issues so far...
