    I've personally always ran 33% Top Fuel. I believe 20% is likely the most common, but I wanted to be sure I was getting as much power as possible. :cool:

    That factory painted body brings me back. My brother bought a Rustler back in the day and it had the same body. Glad you're back in business!

    I'm not aware of aluminum wheels, but why would you want them? The look? Aluminum wheels add weight (compared the stock wheels), and will cause additional heat for the electronics (which already get...

    With Rustlers of this vintage, XL-5s and 10s really aren't period specific. The XL-10 maybe for a really Rustler just before the XL-5 Rustlers came out, but unlikely for these trucks. Since the XL-1...

    I've done this in a pinch to keep me going for the day, but it's not recommended long-term. A previously bent shaft will be more likely to bend in the future. Also, it's easy to scratch the shafts up...

    People on the Internet will do all sorts of crazy things, so minimizing what personal information you share is generally a good idea. Their plate may be public in the areas in which the car is...

    If you wanted to go brushless, you need to install two separate systems (one ESC for each motor); people have done this in the past. Just be aware that you will be pushing the hull beyond the limits...

    The 2019 receiver is the one that you want with an XL-1 ESC (which should have BEC, BTW), as that's what XL-1 equipped vehicles came with from the factory. The 2015, as mentioned, came with the MSC...

    Whenever I have trouble with wheel nuts backing off, I use un-flanged lock nuts and install them "backwards." :)

    I wouldn't hold your breath...but...had you asked me years ago if they'd put out the onboard audio, I would have said the same thing! I think different sounds would be neat.

    I thought that the link app calculates speed by factoring in the RPM and tire size? (I've never personally used it.)

    Did you break the motor in properly? What gearing are you using? Was the gear mesh good? How were the motor temps?

    Personally, I'd go the Traxxas replacement route for $50. Not a bad deal, hassle free. Pop the new one in and be on your way (and be more mindful of the temps going forward).

    It should be fine as long as you get the mesh right and aren't too harsh with the throttle control, IMHO.

    I'm quite positive that people have used Li-Po batteries with the E-Maxx version of that ESC; however, DoubleG is correct. I would be leery of using Li-Po packs with that ESC, especially sealed up...

    I have heard of people successfully using Krylon plastic paint. How did you prep the hull? A light sanding and a good cleaning are a must.
