    I'll have to check the manuals for all the revos to see if that carries across the board. Could have swore I had bought some "take off's" and could of swore I ended up with different pistons in...

    Yes. On a bad landing, usually cartwheel or upside down, especially with heavy tires, the rear arms get pulled down beyond how far the shocks can extend and the ends get ripped off or broken.

    I made my own out of cable I got at lowes back when I had a baja 5B SS and made some for it. I run them down to the pushrod end on the rear arm. If I could figure out a mounting solution for the...

    I'm with you. For me, the revo didn't replace the t-maxx. Very different geometry and honestly, if the maxx diffs held up like my erevo and the bulks had alloy captured hinge pins, I'd get rid of the...

    Just pay attention to the pack measurements. A standard hard case lipo fits in the stampede, but many 5000mah+ 3S packs are longer and don't fit in it.

    I made my own 3S packs out of some old tired...

    The ezpeak dual puts out 4A/50W x 2, which will charge those packs around what your estimating.

    A single 4S requires a bit stronger charger regarding watts, especially when going up to 2C charge rate. A 2x10A/100W can charge 2 2S 5000mah packs at 2C, but runs into a wattage limit with a 5000mah...

    I've been using lucas red-n-tacky on my ring/pinions lately. Seems to stick to the gears better than type typical axle grease I've used prior. That stuff just gets a path cut through it then doesn't...

    They are all the same. A bit stiffer than stock to help support their roll cage if I remember right.

    Any idea what pistons in each end? I don't think the front/rear use the same ones in stock form.

    Used to be able to get full sets for the revo pretty cheap from kit breakers. That's how I got the ones in all 3 of my revos and the set on my eJato. My wife paid retail for the ones for the stampede...

    I buy FE bearings because they are cheap and work fine for the bashing I do. I get a year or more out of them usually for wheels/diffs. CB bearings usually need replaced a couple times...

    You can either remove the plugs if the esc has 2 and put just one on, or you can make/buy a jumper for one of the plugs.

    Having motor wires reversed isn't all bad, just changes the motor rotation. But I'm guessing reversing the input wires...

    I just replacing bearings as they wear out, but I try to do it before they fail completely. If you can feel side to side wiggle on the inner race, it's probably a good idea to replace them.

    That's all well and good, but when you bust the ears off the plastic ones after 2-3 packs... that gets old fast.

    As for the carriers... if the arms are plastic, they will flex still even if the...

    I ran that esc with the 3800kv in my stampede 4x4 vxl for a year or so. I used SMC 7200 2S packs with it and it did fine. I used older traxxas connectors and a cheap 5A UBEC off ebay which I soldered...

    I don't have a comparison with that truck, but I recently started running 2x3S in one of my trucks I used to run 2x2S in.

    I ran 2x2S 7400mah SMC packs and now run 2x3S HRB 5000mah packs. I lost...

    A lot of guys run it and swear by it on 1/8th trucks. The fans are pretty high speed. Sounds like a mini vacuum cleaner when they get up to speed.

    Just sounds like a defective fan. You can try removing the end/plastic bit off the plug, then crimp the wires a bit more to see if it's a connectivity issue. Odds are though, it's just the fan being...

    Well, the 5460A/R look like they also have TiNi coated shafts. I'm guessing they are missing the teflon coating the X's have on the body itself, which I'm assuming is internal to help resist drag...
