    Don't feel bad about that, I had to call Traxxas to ask if I could remove that part.

    Did you check the mesh using the "paper method"?

    This is a really cool idea, and I would love to see if you could use it for other models as well! I vote you go with this, even if it does not get completed, simply for the cool factor. F1/FE...

    I have heard good things about cheapo motors, just be aware that a lot of them are what is called a "540FN" motor, because they have a 540 sized case, but have a 380 rotor and use the fins to make it...

    Do you have an XL-5 or VXL? What terrain do you drive on (street, grass, loose dirt, mix, etc.), and what tires do you have?
