    Most RC cooling fans have connectors that allow them to be plugged into the receiver, so that they are powered by the BEC that is built into the ESC. The connector shown in the link you gave is a...

    I've never heard good things about the center-diff being able to handle large amounts of torque. They are ideal for racing at a track where you will probably be limited to 2s LiPo due to the rules....

    The Rustler VXL is a fun truck for sure, but I'm not sure that you're going to have the best experience making your first brushless vehicle a 2wd vehicle. 2wd vehicles are simply harder to control. ...

    The biggest issue with that sort of power is that it's going to reveal the weaknesses of the vehicle very quickly.

    Plastic axles/CVDs won't last long.

    I think the biggest difference is deciding what type of vehicle you prefer. Performance aside, the two are simply different types of vehicles. The Slash is a Short-Course truck with it's signature...

    You've not mentioned anything in your posts about if you intend to change your gearing, which is a key factor. 2400kv is lower than stock 3500kv, so swapping in a lower kv motor (without changing...

    It's not totally clear from your post, is your car still working correctly (other than heat)? It's normal for a motor to get hot, and the wires will conduct heat from the motor and become hot also....

    I believe that the Brushed Stampede (2wd) comes with a 90t spur, while the Brushless Stampede (2wd) comes with an 86t spur. That is because they use 48p gearing, which means smaller teeth on the...

    To be fair, Traxxas labels the E-Revo as 1/10th scale also, despite the fact that it is absolutely an 1/8th scale vehicle. The Maxx is somewhere in-between, which is where a Slash 4x4 MT is also...

    It's about the amount of power (Watts) sent to the motor. Watts is Volts x Amps. The higher Voltage you run, the less current (Amps) you need to achieve the desired wattage. You would need twice...

    Traxxas vehicles evolve over time. Some changes are big, some changes are tiny.

    I'd recommend against aluminum A-Arms. They don't break as easily, but they simply transfer that force to more important parts instead, which isn't really a good thing. Get RPM A-Arms, they bend...
