    Can anyone comment on the advantage this would give me? Glancing over the documentation, it pigeonholes me into using only certain gear ratios (am I right in assuming it's the ratios, and not the...

    Got it working - cleaned up the black posts a bit, jammed it down, and it went.

  3. 3743A Alum Bellcrank Install in older Slash XL5 (problems with install) - LCG Traxxas

    I've got a circa-2008 or so XL5 Slash. Works great, nothing special. I've done plenty of upgrades over the years, **INCLUDING Traxxas LCG** but the steering is original as far as I know, and...

    I'd recommend saving 100 ukp and getting the 130 ukp Sidewinder + 3800kv setup. You can gear more aggressively, you will have more power, and the ESC adjustability is very, very similar.

    There's no physical room, nor a flat place (best for tape/foam) to place it. That's the basic problem.

    I have a Slash from 2010 or so that I've upgraded with a LCOG chassis (and a Castle 3800/Sidewinder combo, and a few minor things here and there). I've purchased the Telemetry Mount for the...

    It's great - just not stable. :). It's now a very old platform and it shows. I have one - 2wd - and while the 4wd is interesting, the 2wd is less so.

    I think in the watt readout the software gives you that I've been up to using 200W or so at a time, even doing parallel charges - and this is a charger...

    Unknown when an Ultimate with TSM is available; only Traxxas would know. Judging by the introduction of other models, I'd say "sometime soon".

    Yes, without qualifications, yes.

    With the new 6533 Rx and a Tx with bluetooth built in (not just BT-ready) you'd be able to add the Telemetry bits (most are $5-$10 each - it's fairly simple...
