    A common mistake, including me, is breaking or kinking the small bit of wire at the end of the 2.4 GHz antenna.
    If needed, back the wire up into the tube to protect that end. If it just failed, try...

    16/90 should be pretty safe. I mostly run that gearing on 3S with 2.2 tires. 19/90 too.
    Your tires are bigger, heavier and big high discharge battery too so watch the temps at all times.

    I think you said it all. I see the kits as the only move for Traxxas.
    This forum is proof that people buy RTR, strip and replace.
    Why not save your customers a step. Saves them money, makes them...

    We were discussing this sort of thing in the 2pede forum.
    And here I find people changing rustlers to pede steering!

    The simple and effective steering on the 2pede is great.

    Longer overall means longer compressed so should give you a bit more clearance for the tires.
    Should bolt on but not sure. I donít have a Trx4. I did put 110mm shocks on my Axial. It worked.

    Iím a 2wd guy. So when I got a Slash 4x4 I was a bit lost about how to set it up.

    Theoretically it would be about 10% faster with about 10% more teeth on the pinion.
    Traxxas has a chart with all the pinion and spur combos on it...

    You could go to a slightly smaller spur too.

    I forgot those old ones with the big heat sink could take 3S. I still have the external alarm.
    4s you say...? I saw you turn it on... Did you give it a proper run...?

    Pretty sure thatís the over-voltage detection. Get on the Traxxas website to confirm the LED codes.
    Xl5 can only take 2S max.

    As I recall Iím pretty sure the alloy rim alone weighs what heavy rim/tires combos do.
    Big MT size tires can be hard on the gear in the same way. 4oz.+/wheel I think is too high.

    No doubt. Thatís a ton of rotating mass. Those rims are great for shelf queens and crawlers.
    The extra weight in the rims is prized in crawling, but death to driveline parts in go-fast rigs.

    Could be the throttle trim. If not, when in doubt, recalibrate the esc.
