    I did think of your Stampede at one point during this, it really is about the same thing just on a different chassis.

    I noticed the LHS operator rebuilding an old 27mhz transmitter, he said that a...

    Lots of love for an old Rustler

    So, I was on Facebook Marketplace a few weeks ago, as I often do and found an ad for a Rally VXL. In the pics was also the chassis of a Rustler, but it didn't show much else. I confirmed that the...

    I'm not sure if we have exactly the same charger or not, but I have a Traxxas dual charger and do not have any LiPos with the ID plug on them. Never had a problem. Maybe a call to Traxxas is in...

    I tend to keep everything, but feel you would be better off selling privately than trading at LHS.

    There also isn’t a whole lot different between all of the 2wd Traxxas cars, could always make a...

    I believe you have that backwards. Front 2wd wheels have a bigger offset than the rears, 4x4s use the same spacing all around, and the one they ship with is the same as the rear on the 2wd.

    That...

    Just speaking 4x4 Stampede vs 2wd, the 4x4 is so much more capable it's crazy, but the 2wd pulls more wheelies.

    I've also spent less time fixing my 4x4s than my 2wds. There's a pin that engages...

    Make absolute certain that what you are going to school for is worth the student loan. I was a "not smart person" and went for music. Granted, the idea was to become a teacher but that didn't...

    I'd also start at the motor and work your way down from there. It could be that the gear mesh simply changed a little during the crash.

    I use the DumboRC tx/rx in my 2wd brushed Stampede. It came with the old 27mhz setup, had to go, was a good excuse to try the supposedly good cheap option.

    The Stampede doesn't really get me a...

    I do not have roof lights, just posting to say please post your build if you make it happen, that looks awesome.

    My 4x4 Slash came with Tekno rear drive shafts, I like them a lot, just an alternative to MIP. Use them with the stock arms though.

    Just mirroring the comments about the arms. RPM or stock. My 4x4 brushless Slash was bought pre-owned, came with Tekno driveshafts in the rear. They do not work with RPM arms, so if you are...

    I beat the crap out of my 4x4 brushless Slash, the body is sufficient in crashes.

    As for the parachute effect, I believe Pro-Line makes a vented short course style body. They also make a VW bug...

    IMO, the brushed 1/16 slash is fine as it is, it struggles to keep the power down. I'd build up a 1/10 for speed.

    If you don't have lipo batteries and a good charger, buy that before anything else.

    Next, IMO, you should install this immediately:

    As far as cheap bodies, I get the knockoffs on eBay, I've been thinking of getting the one that looks like a VW Bug,...

    The VXL cars are about the same speed as a brushed version when in training mode. The brushed cars are slower still.

    All brushed 4x4 1/10 Traxxas vehicles have a 14/47 (3.36 ratio) ring and pinion in the front and rear diffs. The brushless ones are 13/37 (2.85 ratio).

    The brushed front and rear diffs are strong...

    I have a Traxxas dual charger. If I use it in single mode it puts out 8 amps, which is enough power to get a pack going pretty quickly, although my favorite charge rate is 1C.
