    I used canned air when I first got started, it works. But, considering how much you'll go through, it is a lot more cost effective just to get a small air compressor. You can get a 2-gallon quiet...

    Assuming the Titan motor...

    For normal use, which is a slightly dusty area, no water, no mud, no sand. About every 10 -15 packs remove the motor and clean it.

    Normally yes. Your motor temps are what tells the tale here, you want to keep them below 160*/f. How hot is your motor running in "normal" conditions after about five minutes?

    My TRX4 started out as a Defender, I bought it before the shorter WB kits were out. The short WB links were no out either, so I made my own. This reduced the turning radius and allowed the truck to...

    I love my TRX6, nothing in my stable climbs better. But... maneuverability is the issue, and would get eaten up on a comp course.

    Your brushless system should give some guidance about what they recommend for gear ratios. With that, any time you volt up you'll want to gear down. Of course, that also depends on the system, you...

    Yup, the stock RX is only rated to 6VDC, any more and you'll fry it.

    They should just be 4MM bullet connectors, and should be available at your LHS. Or, you can get them off of Amazon. Everything out there will be something you have to solder on.

    It depends on how serious you want to get into it.

    The stock motor is ok, it is beefy and it works. If you don't have your gearing right, you can generate a lot of heat in the motor in...

    My guess would be that your RX is at fault. Recommend putting the RX in rice for a day or two and trying it again. If it still fails after that, replace the RX.

    This rig is built very well, and it is hard to pin down a routine failure item. Plus, unless you are competing with it, there is really no need to carry spares because things like servos and such are...

    12.3" WB is standard for comps. I wouldn't recommend longer, it makes it harder to navigate tight courses and gates without a bunch of reverses.
