    I'm no engineer, but my gut, and my mind, tells me "bad...VERY bad". The last thing anyone should/would want is some "wiggle" where gear mesh is involved, as this could cause any number of problems...

    Which, to me, would be just another reason to not run 4S on the Rustler (or Slash, or Stampede, as they all share the same A-arms) 4x4. If the A-arms are bending that much, even when using only a...

    Got ya...that makes more sense. So, that being said, you might want to check out SMC batteries, and compare thew dimensions of their 4S packs against the max the Rustler 4x4 fits. SMC makes very...

    That might be because Traxxas designed the Rustler 4x4 to handle only up to 3S. I'm NOT suggesting you use...or even try...a 4S pack, but if you do, you'll have to figure out your own way to strap...

    For myself, decided to go with the King Headz motor mount (plus the STRC CF motor mount plate), as it comes with 2 bearings (the HR doesn't come with any).

    Of course, if anyone really wants their...

    First, I have to ask...you posted this 26min ago, yet, over an hour ago, in the "Slash 4x4, or Rustler 4x4" thread you created several days ago, you said the build is going to have to wait a while. ...

    Can't remember...is the Hot Racing motor mount plate the one with the larger bearings, or is it the King Headz?

    Best Shock Towers & Body Mounts

    I'll be honest, up-front - this thread really isn't for my Slash 4x4...it's for one of my Rustler 4x4s. But, before anyone says to post this within the Rustler 4x4 section, read further..........
