    Funny. My 2 year old 8s esc is still going strong, and the couple of bash buddies that picked one up are working smooth as silk, running strong and cool in the hot weather

    Ty grip. That servo must be a beast. I'd like to run without an external Bec if possible. Are there standard size servos, more powerful than stock, that will work with the vxl8s Bec? If not I may...

  4. My stock servo is wearing out or my saver is weakening

    I'm loosing steering performance. Loosing torque when front end is loaded slowing into high speed turns. I figure either the servo is dying or the steering system is tired. The steering seems slow...

    The rx channels 1 and 2 are both for steering servos. The 3rd slot is for the esc. Only thing that jumps out to me in the description of your issue.

    Yep. Heavier trucks(or heavier unsprung weight setups) might need beefier steering links. Def agree to that. I love the stock links for a stock weight truck.

    I forgot something... Steering links. I've broken 2 in bad landings. I won't upgrade. They are so cheap and easy to replace, I just keep 1 in my tool bag. It literally takes 2 to 3 min to replace...

    The tbone bumper material is softer and more flexible than stock. It should absorb more force than the stiff stock bumper.

    Shock shafts and rear bearing carriers (Replace with rpm) were the only weak points on the truck for me. I've broken a few lower a arms, but after many many really bad landings.

    I did not like the xv4 design as it seemed to be just a cover over the stock bumper. So decided I was not interested. Just looked silly to me.

    It's def worth installing. The truck is undergeared a bit from the factory. Gearing it up will "wake up" the motor. You will feel lots more punch and power, and a little more speed.

    Being that it cogs, then works fine, then cogs, is making me think it's a bad connection. If it was a bad cell in the pack, it usually will not start getting better. I had a vxl motor that was doing...

    Try unplugging the servo and see if it stops cogging. I know it sounds stupid, but 2 times now I thought I had blown an esc(smaller trucks) and it was just an older servo causing it.

    I would think I'd need an 9 pin balance port(8s) instead of a 7 pin(6s) going to charger in order to read all 8 cells individually. Otherwise the charger would be looking at 4 cells. That's where I'm...
