    Platinum was the best Slash 4x4 Traxxas ever made. Pity they discontinued it.

    NO! Never adjust your center by adjusting your turnbuckles, you want to do it the other way around. Steering turnbuckles should always be the same length left/right. To make the truck go straight,...

    OK, that is NOT normal. The motor is not turning at all here and you slid it over so the gears are not engaged? You're going to have to take apart the car and find the source of the clicking. I'd...

    That sound is pretty normal. The pinion and diff are both metal and the stock mesh has a bit of gap, so yeah you'll hear them slap against each other as the motor clicks through its poles.

    I tried it. I think the rod ends are a little too long, I would cut them halfway between stock length and the full length. Helps a lot with landing (with appropriate preload on the springs), but...

    Your servo is either stripped, or the servo saver is too weak. Most likely the servo is stripped.

    You can use a set of pliers to open up the arm a bit. Itís also usually easier to mount the bottom first and do the top second.

    Yup, the pistons size are different front to back. I actually bought a set of the pistons because I wanted more pack in the rear, then realized they rears already have the smaller piston holes. So...

    Not sure if this was clear, but with stock suspension I was running 30wt front, 40-50wt rear. With WideMaxx kit I went to 50wt front, 70wt rear. Depends on how heavy your battery is and where you...

    Agreed. I think this is the perfect setup. It will still chassis slap a little depending on how low you run your shock collars, but it's the way it should be set IMO.

    The Maxx has a heavy rear weight bias with that motor and battery all the way back. The rear shocks are also too short, they should be a few mm longer, but Traxxas decided to use the same shocks...

    Something like this is what I would recommend to start. I think I'm running 45/65 front/rear.

    Whatever you do, don't buy a Traxxas 2wd. They're about 25 years old, the 4wd designs are MUCH better.

    Super durable, doesn't handle that well, and pretty heavy. But a very good truck, one of the best out there.

    You can use a big flathead screwdriver and spread the arms apart a little to get the shock in. It's imperative the hollow ball is lined up, if it's turned it won't fit right.

    The Hoss is not particularly durable IMO as compared to some other vehicles on the market. The shocks are the biggest weak point, although if you are breaking arms and the steering hub and...

    Agreed.

    At least crank down the preload collars before you do anything else.

    I don't think you can get stiffer springs.

    I've been messing around with springs a lot, and think the stock springs for general off-road bashing is actually pretty good. A little thicker oil...
