    Got the servo today and it's bit better but I'm thinking I need to feed it more power. I'm seriously considering some more upgrades in the steering area because it's all so sloppy.

    Huh, didn't realize the truck already came with the HD ones - that's nice and I certainly feel like the one that broke had lived a good life. TRA3655P are the blue ones I got.

    I'm aware of...

    Sorry, I did not weigh them but they have to be within a few grams of each other since it is the exact same design just using a different plastic for the HD model.

    What's your servo budget? I just spent a week deliberating on what to buy, I ended up with an Alturn EVO P-2 for $62 - I had to force myself not to keep upping the budget since there are some really...

    Replaced the a-arms with the Traxxas HD ones in blue - finally realized I was disassembling the servo linkage wrong this whole time so that operation will be a lot easier in the future.

    Better servo & maybe sways. I'd also suggest either Stampede front shock guards or a TBone front bumper to give you better coverage up front. The Stampede parts were $8 and took about 2 minutes to...

    Finally broke a front a-arm, it split at the forward mount. Considering the abuse I've heaped on the Rusty I have just been waiting for this to happen. I went ahead and got the HD "cold weather"...

    Sure sounds like the ESC is messed up, I'd try and warranty it. It's certainly possible an internal solder connection failed after a big G event.

    Does the steering servo operate from the Mamba or...

    Bought an IR gun so I can figure out if it is the ESC or the motor that overheats in our summer heat - my guess is probably both :(

    Do you still have the stock motor you could swap in to test? First thing, IMO, is to figure out if it is an ESC or motor issue. I'd be you are right about a connection though, a hard landing...

    You can also get full sets on eBay from take-off Slash Platinums for ~$65. I did end up going with stiffer springs but they aren't terrible out-of-the-box for bashing.

    They have plastic caps but...

    Alright made a few changes, mainly dropped to a smaller rear sway and finally set the end points on my servo. I'm not loving the angle of the conrod between the bellcrank and horn so I may try...

    Is there a concern using aluminum hexes on plastic wheels? I know with these cars as we beef stuff up we move breakage elsewhere - I'm wondering if aluminum hexes are more likely to strip out wheels...

    Slightly different question, is it just the center link that is different between the 2wd & 4wd models?

    I bought the GTR shocks as I was a bit concerned the Ultra shock threads may have been damaged by the cap popping off. I added HR sways as well which combined for a nice upgrade. Seems like I could...
