    The MMX is "overkill" for the Rusty. Also, the 2200kV motor is excellent for a crawler...but, in the Rusty, you'll be going quite a bit slower, unless you go with a much larger pinion, a smaller...

    The Rustler 4x4 does have the "auto righting" feature...but, you have to be an idiot to use it. Use it too many times, and it will damage the vehicle, including the electronics.

    In that case, can don't water your money...just get something better...something not 'Traxxas'. Overall, their vehicles are outstanding, and the other electronics are mostly good, but I don't care...

    Just curious, but, what brand is it...the stock Traxxas servo, or aftermarket? I know, with my Rustler, the very first upgrade I did was to replace the Traxxas servo with a Hitec servo.

    Overall, it looks really good...great job. A tip for the future - align the body to the body mounts, and ream the mount holes, before painting. I know, a lot of people ask, "Won't that pull the...

    NOT always true. It depends on the vehicle type, the intended use of the vehicle, and the configuration of said vehicle. A vehicle with 4-wheel independent suspension will use different diff fluid...

    I'm wondering if the grease used in the Slash's rear is different than that used in the Rusty. The Rusty had "thick sludge" in there, and it was far thicker than the 80K diff fluid I replaced it...

    Higher, or lower, in the rear will primarily depends on your use. Also, as I've always understood it, the grease in the stock rear is incredible thick...equivalent to 1M diff fluid.

    First, the heavier weight diff fluid should be in the rear. Think of using different weights to adjust the "slip" of the diff. By using such a lightweight fluid in the rear, you've, essentially,...

    First, you need to figure out what you have, as they're no such thing as "VXL5"...it's either VXL, or XL5. If XL5, they're you problem, as it does NOT accept 3S LiPo batteries.

    How old is it? You might want to call Traxxas, as it could get covered under warranty.
