    Curious about this too, what are the benefits? I upgraded my 2020 xl-5 to brushless with a 3s Lipo and it eats spur gears for breakfast, looking to try a metal one. I also notice when I tried to put...

    Gotcha, I'll look into one of these. Finally got it all programmed and all settings safely set (ie 3v low voltage etc) and it flies, havent used 3s battery yet but waiting on last minute steering...

    When would be a good time to check temps? I’m coming from a brushed motor so I really want to go conservative over speed. I don’t care about maxing out the performance if it means compromising...

    Thanks, yah I read a lot of people as it came programmed and didn’t have reverse but the manual explains in detail how to calibrate so I’ll make sure to go through that. And what’s a good temp?

    Ended up getting a good bit of gift cards for my birthday so I decided to just upgrade to a brushless motor.

    Found nothing but good reviews on various sites/youtube etc on this "Onyx 1/10 4P...

    Yah leaning towards the castle creations sv3 3800kv. Its about 120$ if you get the matching motor rod size for the gears I have, although I found multiple 5 star reviews on the Onyx 4000kv esc combo...

    From what ive read it seems like the drop from 19 to 16 on the pinion is much more significant than the 4t on the spur so using 16/86 i would assume would give a good bit more acceleration than...

    Its a Rustler XL-5 2wd. Contemplating getting a 4000kv brushless setup tho but right now stock motor, 2s lipo. Running the tires that come on the VXL. Alot of street but grass too.

    What part of...
  9. What gearing do you guys run on Rustler 2WD?

    Stock came with 19/90 and 28/86 optional. I ordered a 16t pinion, and I like acceleration but I dont want to
    take a huge hit to top speed either, should I use the 86 with the 16 or go to something...

    Gotcha, yah Im in no rush to pull the trigger on a brushless motor but i saw that and thought it was worth taking a look. I did find a deal on a 16t traxxas brand pinion gear so I picked that up....

    Good brushless motor/esc combo?

    Found this combo, 85$ seems reasonable but idk how good it is or if anyone’s using it. Also what do you do about the iD plugs if you have all traxxas iD batteries?

    Gotcha. Yah just saw a few comments and videos saying running 2s over Nimh will make the brushed motors hotter, not to mention I have (2) 5000mah lipos going from the provided 3000mah Nimh so I...
  14. Integy Dual Fan Heatsink for Titan 12T motor worth it?

    Will be running 2s Lipo exclusively and don’t have plans to upgrade to brushless anytime soon. Would the heatsink help the motor last longer? It’s a Rustler XL-5.

    Temps are nice now but during the...

    I was mistaken I was looking at a bushing pressed into the motor, not removable. You’re correct all bearings in the transmission
  16. Looks like the steering is 5x8 so I’ll probably...

    Looks like the steering is 5x8 so I’ll probably wait until I upgrade to one to aluminum as I assume they come with 5x11 size. I didn’t change out the one that the motor goes through to grab the...

    I have 2x packs of 10 coming today with aluminum axle carriers. Plan to replace all of them, but after all 4 tires axle carrie w I’ll have 8 left just trying to find out where more bushings are
  18. Is the bushing behind the pinion gear the one...

    Is the bushing behind the pinion gear the one people are referring to lubricating when talking about the titan motor? Also if it’s a 5x11x4 would there be any benefit to replace with bearings ?
  19. Exactly what I wanted to know. So my Lipo has...

    Exactly what I wanted to know. So my Lipo has been fully charged since yesterday morning since the bearings came late, how do I put it in storage mode? I have the "Traxxas EZ Peak Plus 4amp Charger...
  20. What is proper maintenance on Rustler XL-5?

    I’m upgrading to bearings all around today and have a 2s Lipo battery now. What maintenance do you need to perform on a regular basis? I have some pc air spray that I use to get any dust and debris...

    Unrelated but prob the most significant thing I noticed after taking it out. The front steering trim was constantly getting out of whack every time I ran into something. Is this normal? Is there...

    I think someone in this thread (maybe another) said something about the titan having one built in? Is there one on the stock xl5? Or can you upgrade it or add another? I’ve only seen ones for the...

    Cool thanks. It’s about 75 now but I live near New Orleans and we regularly get 95-100 days for most of the year and the track is outside so I’ll have to keep that in mind next year.

    Thanks, yah I should’ve done more research before I ordered it. Already contacted the company to swap it for a second 2s. I imagine you still have to let the motor cool down between battery swaps...

    Yah after doing more research I’m going to return the 3s and swap it for a 2s 5800mah. Don’t really wanna be buying another motor soon, and the antenna look doesn’t bother me too much. But I also...
