    I would personally recommend upgrading to a new combo. If you had the old 2-pole velineon motor then maybe that could justify the motor-only upgrade but the newer 4-pole velineon (which is what you...

    The Future of the E-Maxx

    Hey everyone. I have a friend who has an E-Maxx brushless. He's had it for a few years. I've personally stuck with my Stampede 4x4 and eventually converted it to a Slash 4x4 Monster Truck so that...

    Very interesting. I wonder if/how this changes the existing dynamic of whether you should be running a slipper or center diff. As someone who is mainly a basher, I've always been lead to believe...

    The Maxx hasn't been out that long, so your truck is obviously still pretty new. The plastic CVDs on my Stampede 4x4 didn't break either - until they broke. It's a longevity issue mostly. If you...

    Wow, this is very close to the kind of truck I was looking for a few years ago. I got back into RC with various friends and family members. I went with a Stampede 4x4. Most of my friends and...

    For the most part, the main obstacle to upgrading the motor is going to be possible overheating. Motor usage in a boat like the Blast is different than that of a land vehicle. With a boat you are...

    No, the 2200kv is a much larger motor and a LOT more powerful compared to the 3500kv velineon motor. That is the Motor + ESC that comes stock in the larger 1/8th scale E-Revo.

    The 3500kv motor...

    Depends on exactly what kind of tire you like, but you might consider a set of Talon 2.8 tires. They are bigger than the stock rustler tires (still 2.8" wheels), and they are actually the stock...

    There is no direct transfer of heat between the motor and ESC, but any situation where one is overheating, the other is usually not going to be running cool.

    Anything up to about 150-160F is...

    The Castle 2200kv is a big 1/8th scale motor, probably not what you are looking for. The Castle 2400kv motor would be a great choice, and really the best choice for constant 3s usage, but would...

    Not really an issue. Don't puncture them with a knife or short-circuit them or anything like that and you generally won't run into any issues. The only real extra work is putting them into "storage...

    28/83 is Speed Run gearing. Might be worthwhile to try gearing down to something like 19/86, or even 16/90 with that motor. Seems sort of odd to be set on your gearing before you've chosen your...

    I think the biggest factor here is going to be how much self control you have as a driver. I prefer to "overpower" my vehicles, in terms of using a bigger battery and otherwise, because ultimately...

    What are you usually doing on the track when the axle breaks? Stock VXL motor? What gearing? What battery? How tight is your slipper?

    Saying "sidewinder ESC" is like saying "mamba ESC"; you need to be more specific. The Sidewinder 3 can struggle on heavier vehicles, the Sidewinder 4 does a bit better, but the Sidewinder 8th is a...

    Go the monster truck route with your Slash IMO. It helps a lot when father and son have "similar" type of trucks. I built a Slash 4x4 Monster Truck to run with my friend's E-Revo instead of getting...

    You are talking about a 3656 size motor or similar? Generally smaller motors are not "faster" than bigger motors. Don't focus on KV. It is just one factor, along with your gearing and voltage, the...

    I've also been running the same set of MIP X-duty CVDs since 2011. I recently got a 2nd set and was able to compare them to the used set. For being so old, the older set does have some wear and...

    No, not at all. Your motor KV is just one factor. Your input voltage (battery) and gearing also come into play. A lower KV motor will have every bit as much top speed (if not more) as a higher KV...

    Since you already have an ESC, that should be a huge factor in what motor you choose. What can your ESC handle? If you want to still be able to run 2S, then you need to stick with a higher KV...

    I think it's a stretch to call a Rustler 4x4 a larger 4x4 vehicle. It's chassis is about 0.8" longer than the Stampede 4x4, but still about 1.15" shorter than the Slash 4x4. The Rustler doesn't...

    The 3800kv 1410 + Sidewinder 3 would be a good combo for this. I've run it before in a comparable vehicle and it does quite well. IMO don't feel the need to start with too high of a gearing. Keep...

    I had a recurring issue where the smaller stock plate was bending, which then caused the pads to not make good contact and slip more, sometimes even melting the spur. Part of this, I'm sure, is that...

    The drivetrain is exactly the same between the 2WD Rustler and the 2WD Stampede. They also both come with the exact same stock ESC options. I think it's pretty safe to say that as long as you take...
