    Badlands. Many other 2.8 “monster truck” tires are just too heavy. They may look good, but extra stress on the drivetrain will strip hexes, break driveshafts, and create more motor heat. Badlands...

    - traxxas makes a mount for the mamba monster to sit in the e-revo chassis. You can use that, or make your own small plate and tape the ESC to it.

    Get some smaller 8th scale non-ballooning wheels. Use 17mm adapters and run buggy or xo-1 tires. Balance them too. That’ll go a long way in protecting your drivetrain against 4s-6s. It’ll also...

    The only ones I've seen are dual 10th scale SCT systems, and they did it just for the fun of the build. It has no advantages over a single 8th scale setup.

    Two 8th scale systems would break the...

    Show goo and drywall tape is meant to be more for fixing damaged bodies. Large cracks are easily fixed with it. I wouldn't use it to protect and reinforce an entire body though.

    With the xl5 brushed system, you'll want to gear down. Get a smaller pinion gear. Everything else will be fine. You only need to look at different driveshafts if you're running a brushless system....

    I wouldn't. I'd convert the p4de to a monster truck slash before I went emaxx.

    If I was for sure going to go larger, I'd pick the e-revo, summit, or xmaxx first.

    The Summit is the exact vehicle you're looking for. I've had one for years now, and it's still my favorite. I beat the crap out of it. Water, mud, snow, it just takes it and wants more.

    Sounds like the velineon system is the way to go. I'd imagine that your LHS should be willing to install it for you as well, or at least help you with the install.

    Thread should be moved to the appropriate section, instead of e-revo section.

    I'd recommend either the velineon brushless system, or the castle sidewinder SCT system. Both would give you all the...

    Yes, it's a good setup. However, it's heavy, and the motor prefers a 4s battery, which is also heavier. Heavier leads to more breakage.

    If you can find just the sidewinder 8 ESC, and pair it...

    Sway bars for the win. That's the best general option to start removing body roll.

    Go for it, why not. This is just a small mod. No, it's not a best practice, but who cares. Experimentation is fun and educational, as long as you're willing fix what you break. :)

    Slash LCG MT build (diff question)

    I prefer the xl-5 diffs for every use except speed runs. The vxl diffs are just geared too high. There's lots more usable gearing options with the xl-5 diffs, especially in monster truck applications...

    It'd look cool, but it'd be beyond overkill for the summit. A 4274-sized motor, like the castle 1515 2200kv, is already overkill enough. I figure you'd get tired of it after a run or two. You'd...

    The more off-the-line burst power you want, the more the rustler will lose straight-line traction. I'd use a small lock-washer on the differential shaft to tighten it up some. Or, just lock it up...

    3.8 trenchers? I'd consider converting to a slash 4x4 monster truck if you're using tires that large. Then, you have a large selection of short course and 8th scale monster truck bodies available.
