    The chassis could be slightly warped, the screw holes for the rear shock tower in the chassis might even be slightly misaligned. As long as you can get the body on and it doesn't force the body to...

    It may be commonly used for crawling but a servo really is not designed for high speed rigs or crawlers exclusively. They are either fast or high torque and the really expensive ones are both. The...

    The rear diffs most commonly strip because the rear diff housing is weak and allows the ring and pinion gears to separate. This chews them up real fast with an audible clicking noise. No matter how...

    I hit up my local tracks once in awhile and check the "scufs" bin. Different places call them different things but the used track tires rarely get used up before being tossed in the bin. Some tracks...
