    here is a you-tube link that shows a how one guy went about making some RC Car ramps:

    Another possibility could be that the slipper clutch could be loose, causing a lack of torque to the wheels?

    I'm currently running a 2075x in my Rustler 4x4 (basically just a metal-geared version of the stock 2075). I picked it up really cheap like $20 or something a while ago. If you can get one cheap,...

    Note that the XL5 ESC that is included with the Stock Brushed Rustler 4x4 will NOT accept a 3-Cell LiPo. Read the Owners Manual. I'm not sure if the ESC will recognize the over-volt situation (and...

    In the interest of family harmony, I'd suggest going with the standard camber link for the moment. You can always upgrade them at a later time. Replacing SWMBO... generally much, MUCH trickier (and...

    I believe that the XL5 ESC is only rated for 2S LiPo. The 11.1v Peak LiPo that you have is 3S, and is not going to work with the ESC. Read the XL5 ESC manual here:...

    There are lots of folks here on the Traxxas Forums that have nothing but good things to say about SMC batteries. If I was going to move away from using the Traxxas ID battery system, I'd...

    I'd start with the ones that you added most recently. Reading back, it sounds like maybe you added the C-blocks/Steering-blocks and the drive shafts at the same time? I'd pick one, and convert it...

    Changing from NiMH to LiPo as far as charging the battery goes was almost a non-thing, as I use the Traxxas ID batteries and EZPeak chargers. Plug the battery into the charger, it auto-detects the...

    If you are looking to improve runtime, I'd suggest one of the below options:
    1) Getting a second 3000mah battery. That way you can start the driving session with two fully charged batteries, and...

    Heya RustlerP, welcome to the hobby, and to the Traxxas community forums!

    First: what batteries are you using at the moment? NiMH (Nickel–metal hydride)? or LiPo (Lithium Polymer)? In General,...

    I doubt if anyone outside of Traxxas has any idea of the 'suspect' Lot or Serial numbers. Traxxas might not even figured this out (as if they had, you'd think that they'd have issued some...

    tlrrider:
    I would not expect that you'd need to go through any kind of rebinding (I'm guessing that is what you meant by re-learn?), but it can't hurt anything to do so.

    I'm new-ish to RC, so...

    I agree, that based on the specs, it SHOULD be about the same speed. If you feel that it is much slower than stock, maybe there is some binding in the steering? Any additional friction in the...

    Yep, but keep in mind that when you go down that low on power, you are also cutting the power of the brakes by that much too. I was shocked at just how poorly my rustler 4x4 stopped when I had used...

    Well, if Traxxas claims ~40MPH with the 17 pinion and a 2S battery (backed up by OutsourcedRC on the You Tubes) , I'll retract my statement about being over-geared.

    I'll 3rd or 4th the opinions voiced above. Skip the NiMh, unless you REALLY have money to burn.
