    Ahhh, I remember the first time I dug into the tranny of these vehicles. They're really quite simple, but I understand that the process can seem like a lot at first. Just take your time. Make sure...

    I'd shoot them an e-mail. Worst case, nothing comes of it. Best case, maybe you help identify a potential issue with a run of the arms.

    LOL, most all of us have been there at one time or another! Be careful, though, you may end up having to re-glue the tires!

    Have you tried contacting Traxxas support? Perhaps there was an issue with a run of these parts?

    Yeah, that location (above the battery, in front of the shock tower) is incredibly common for R/Cs. For particularly bumpy driving conditions, I've found that 3M's Dual Lock works really well for...

    I'm in the non-metal spur camp as well, mostly for the fact that they are easier to replace than other parts. In many of my older vehicles, I have ran Kimbrough spur gears for years; I prefer them...

    Was the motor new? Have you checked the driveline for binding? Gear mesh too tight? Bearings in rough shape? Quality batteries that aren't tired/old? I'm not super familiar with this setup, but is...

    I've personally always ran 33% Top Fuel. I believe 20% is likely the most common, but I wanted to be sure I was getting as much power as possible. :cool:

    I'm not aware of aluminum wheels, but why would you want them? The look? Aluminum wheels add weight (compared the stock wheels), and will cause additional heat for the electronics (which already get...

    With Rustlers of this vintage, XL-5s and 10s really aren't period specific. The XL-10 maybe for a really Rustler just before the XL-5 Rustlers came out, but unlikely for these trucks. Since the XL-1...

    I've done this in a pinch to keep me going for the day, but it's not recommended long-term. A previously bent shaft will be more likely to bend in the future. Also, it's easy to scratch the shafts up...

    If you wanted to go brushless, you need to install two separate systems (one ESC for each motor); people have done this in the past. Just be aware that you will be pushing the hull beyond the limits...

    The 2019 receiver is the one that you want with an XL-1 ESC (which should have BEC, BTW), as that's what XL-1 equipped vehicles came with from the factory. The 2015, as mentioned, came with the MSC...

    Whenever I have trouble with wheel nuts backing off, I use un-flanged lock nuts and install them "backwards." :)

    I wouldn't hold your breath...but...had you asked me years ago if they'd put out the onboard audio, I would have said the same thing! I think different sounds would be neat.

    I thought that the link app calculates speed by factoring in the RPM and tire size? (I've never personally used it.)
