    GTR shocks are excellent, much better than the stock ultra shocks. I would not go overboard with the aluminum parts, especially the a-arms. Plastic absorbs energy by breaking or flexing, and aluminum...

    For the motor Kv, it determines the rotational speed of the motor at a given voltage. For example, a 3800kv motor running on a 7.4V battery would spin at 28,120 RPM (assuming it has no load), and a...

    If you are on a tight budget, you can go with a cheap ESC and motor combo. It's sometimes a hit and miss. But if you can, try to at least get an ESC from a reputable company (a $15 motor will work).

    Yeah, the new stronger servo drew too much amperage, which caused a brownout in the ESC. The Hobbywing 1080 is a great choice, like StijnH said. I have it on my Bronco along with a Holmes Hobbies 21T...

    If you have a local hobby shop nearby, you can go there to test out which part is causing the problem (if it isn't a connection error in the wiring).

    GTR shocks are definitely better than the stock ultra shocks. They are very tunable and are much stronger. And yes, I think the lengths are correct. The oil they come with looks to be about maybe 30W?

    Me too, I'm just kind of by myself for most of the times. My neighbor has a Slash 2wd, but he doesn't really drive it, and I cannot find anyone at school that is interested in RC.

    Yes, ElectricPropils brought up some excellent points. I would like to add that Proline makes wheels that have removable hexes, so when you strip one, you just need to replace the hex.

    Any 190mm/200mm 1/10 touring car bodies will fit (with 257mm wheelbase). The 190/200mm is the width of the body, so you may need to change the offset of the wheels to make the body fit.
