    For onroad use you may get away with using a 17T pinion, but watch the temps carefully!
    To put it in perspective, the stock gearing in the original VXL Rally a few years ago was 13/54T (same as on...

    Frankly, I wouldn't go as far as calling the stock Ultra shocks garbage, but they definately need aluminium caps and 40-60wt oil. The stock plastic caps have been a well known weak point for a...

    Thanks a lot, Tommyjon.

    Funny thing is I installed exactly that bumper on my Defender three days ago! :lol:

    Metrically, that equals 95.3 and 88.9mm (height 11.1mm).

    The 2075X has the same specs as the 2075 (125oz-in of torque, 0.17sec/60). The only differences are the color of the case and the metal gears.

    I don't know if the button on the current VXL-3s (3355R) is the same as on the old version (3355X). A common issue with the old version was that the on-off button got stuck due to accumulated dirt. ...

    The Sport models have spools instead of working diffs. This is the same as locked diffs - hence the tire scrubbing.
