    I did the same XO-1 conversion on one of my Rusty 4x4s (plus I plan to convert my Slash 4x4, and my other Rusty 4x4). I used 15K & 10K...but, I'm using them for racing, not bashing.

    Consider what...

    True enough. But I still stand by my statement of avoiding using the self-rightening function. Use it enough, and it will cause damage to your vehicle. It could be the driveshafts, or the diff...

    Just curious, but what channel(s) did you initially try? Assuming you're using the stock Rx, not all of the ports on the Rx are "channels". For the BEC, the most likely ports...probably, the only...

    I HIGHLY recommend SMC batteries. The thing you'll need to remember about any non-Traxxas battery is the balance leads are separate. With the Traxxas 2nd-Gen ID connector, the charging AND...

    Yes, the other car is faster...but, it's CONSTANTLY going off the track, almost always in the exact same locations. At least your car ALWAYS stayed on the track.
