    Here is a home made trailer I bought for around $35, it wasn't terrible, but greatly lacking in refinement.

    So, you understand, you took about 25% of that motor's life out of it by using water. Completely unnecessary.

    If you are trying to get more performance out of the truck, you will want to run 3S,...

    The electronics on the Slash will handle 3S, but really the rest of the truck is made for 2S. If you run 3S, you will break more axles. Recommend looking at aftermarket axles from MIP or Techno.

    What RX are you using?

    The DX5C comes with a SRS6000 AVC receiver, which does not have a bind button, you should be using the binding plug. Are you trying to bind this radio with the Traxxas...

    This is a pretty powerful servo, but the Traxxas external BEC should be able to handle it. If it drawing too much power (> 3A), then you will have the exact same problem with the HW1080, its BEC is...

    Interesting...

    It looks like the TRX6 in the picture has been modified, the back axles have been separated a bit to make room for the tracks.

    So, in stock form, you cannot run the tracks on...

    For the most part crawlers really do not need a break in, just run it. If you REALLY feel the need, just run it around at about 1/2 speed for about 10 minutes, blow it out with air, and you're good. ...

    The HW Axe system is less expensive, but nothing that I have used.

    I am running the Mamba X in three RCs now, and to me, that system will well worth the money. It gives a good amount of speed,...

    To keep the motor from burning up you would have to gear it way down, and I do not believe there is enough range between the available spurs and pinions to be able to do that. Worst case, you can...

    I do actually have two builds that do not have body clips, both are hard-bodies. On one I use magnetic mounts, they work ok, but, the body will still come off if it gets a shock.

    There are a few of us that have dropped various roll cages on, they are fun builds.

    First, it sounds like you are way over-geared, and I don't know if fans will help.

    I put Shoe Goo around this area, prevents the paint from coming off.

    If it is fresh paint, wait two or three days after the last coat to allow the paint to fully cure.

    I don't know. While it would be cool, there are a lot of differences between the trucks, and it may not be cost effective.
