    Yes, you just need to replace the plastic caps with aluminum ones. The threads strip out of the plastic caps easily; it happens all the time. Refill the shock with oil, put aluminum caps on all 4...

    What others have said. We have the Mamba system in our Slash 4x4, and it’s a beast. Good choice.

    We have made a couple of Backslash buggies, and we found that the bodies for a Losi 8ight-E fit perfectly. Mount with Velcro along the chassis.

    Yep, we’ve been to the track at Emery Park several times. We live an hour north of there, so we don’t make it as often as we’d like. We had considered buying some land outside of town for a house,...

    Hmm... I got a glitch buster sent from Traxxas just last week, and it was the single plug type. Plugged into one of the random open spots and works great. If yours has a plug at each end, it's likely...
