    It's normal for a brushless motor with 4 poles or more to feel "notchy" as you describe. 2-pole brushless motors tend to feel more smooth when you turn them by hand.

    It doesn't sound like there is a problem. Do you have any actual functionality issues (while actually driving, not just while playing with the spur)?

    By your logic I guess a Rustler 4x4 is a Stampede also?

    Common platform shares common parts. That's actually a good thing, not a bad thing.

    That seems a bit extreme. If you are going to make such severe modifications to this old platform, maybe you should take a different approach and simply use a newer platform instead. For example,...

    That is a lot of tape. You should check out Shoe-Goo. Just use masking tape to hold the body together, put a bunch of shoe-goo on, and then remove the masking tape once it dries. When you use...

    Interesting that they are actually more expensive than the MIP X-Duty CVDs, which I believe were already the most expensive metal CVD option. It seems that they are very similar to the MIP design,...

    Maybe not a great answer, but really, the best fix is to learn how to do it yourself. There is nothing special about the self-righting feature, it's just going back and forth between the throttle...

    The VXL motor would work fine with the Max 6 ESC, but you would not be able to use the VXL motor on 6s. The motor has too high of a KV to use that much voltage. Even with 3s, the motor is already...

    Watts is the measure of power. Watts is volts times amps. You need both to achieve a large number of watts.

    For example, static electricity is generally in the range of 20,000 to 25,000 volts,...

    You can replace worn out bearings with new bearings, sure. But the failure that you describe is not very common. I have a VXL motor that is almost 10 years old that has seen life in 5 different...

    I would think that they would have plenty of 32p 5mm pinions. They might have "Mod 0.8" pinions instead of 32p. "Mod 0.8" is metric. 32p = 0.79375 which is close enough to 0.8 that they are...
