    I was thinking the same thing. The reviews seem good, but they're so cheap I'm afraid to order one. I recently picked up an SMC 3s for my Rustler 4x4 VXL. Knock on wood, it seems like a good battery...
  2. Had anyone tried these battery packs in a Merv?

    My Gens Ace are starting to puff on me. Looking for a decent replacement. Was wondering if anyone has tried these in a Merv.

    Once you start running it, the paint will rub off on each side where it contacts the chassis as well. Don't worry too much about it. It'll have plenty of scratches after a few runs.

    Sounds like a drivetrain vibration. I never noticed a tire hum when I was using the stock Talons, or Trenchers.

    You might want to let Traxxas know of your extensive knowledge. I just spoke with them, and they confirmed the VXL-3S is not 4s capable. But sure, I'll believe you over the manufacturer.

    Take MiniSummit's advice and go with 2s at first. I've had my MERV for a little over three years, and the stock system has held up well. Be sure and shim your diffs. I tore up my rear diff on 2s a...

    Mine will do front flips and back flips from a standstill. Stock motor and ESC on a 2s Lipo. Just make sure you let off the throttle before it lands, or you'll tear up your diffs like Acidic01 stated.

    Lol. Hate it when that happens. Did you try hydroplaning with your MERV?

    No prob. Yeah the stock servo is a weak point on most of the models from what I've read and experienced. If it rolls/flips, and lands awkwardly on a front wheel, it can easily strip the servo. I use...

    It looks like there's only four screws and the servo horn screw that need to be removed. Here's a video I found showing how to do it. Looks pretty easy. I don't know how good the servo is he's using...

    I'm new to the Rustler 4x4 scene as well. I'd start by removing the front end, removing the servo, and check your servo gears. I had the same issue with my 1/16 E-Revo, and it ended up being the...

    Did you run into anything head on? Sounds like a stripped servo. Does the noise only happen when you're trying to turn the wheels?

    Velineon 3500 noob question

    I've had my Rustler 4x4 VXL for 5 weeks. I took the motor off for the first time today to put a 10t on it. My only other experience with a VXL (or any brushless motor) has been my 1/16 E-Revo. I...

    It seems like a good deal to me. Half the price of a comprable Traxxas battery. 75c vs 25c discharge rate. It already has the Traxxas style plug on it.
    Maybe someone who uses SMC will chime in...

    I've never tried SMC, but I do run Gens Ace 3s Lipo in my Merv. There's a balancing port hidden behind the Traxxas logo on the front, to the left of the ID input. I'm short, you can use your Traxxas...

    That's probably the setup I'm going to try. I just ran a full pack, checking temps every 5 minutes. Air temp was 67. The ESC stayed in the 140-145 degree range, but the motor was 178 degrees.

    Which fans and heatsink are you using?
    I've also read that if the spur/pinion mesh is too tight, it could cause overheating. Do you know if there's any truth to that?

    It was a fully charged 3s when I tried the self righting. It did work the first try, on grass. No luck after that, even with full power. After that is when it overheated. It's only 70 degrees right...

    It was around 80-85 degrees. I tried the self righting feature a few times with no luck. I don't know if that made it overheat or not. After it cooled down, I didn't use the self righting, and it...

    Thanks for the link. It's seems like everyone is running 3s. There's has to be a way to keep it from going into stage 1 of thermal shutdown. The odd thing is, once it cooled off, I was able to run it...

    If you're running the #2925 batteries, those are 6 cell NiMH. You shouldn't run a pair of 2s LiPO's in a series. That's what the parallel connector is for.
    Do you have the VXL motor, or Titan?
