    I read the leapard runs hot, don't know anything about the other two.

    The BLX2050kv bolted right up without issue.

    I never had the stock traxxas vxl 2200kv motor, I had the v1 ERBE which had...

    I run those on mine as well. I was running vdk #2 with 60wt, but I keep busting the pistons, so on the rear I just changed to standard #2 pistons and 50wt. Will see how that does. Just got back from...

    Got a link to the specific one your running? What kv? The TP site is a bit of a pain to navigate unless you know exactly what your looking for.

    Mine was busted, so I didn't have to care if it survived removal. I just stuck a screwdriver under it and twisted to pop it loose.

    FWIW, the battery bay support clips I made didn't seem to help....

    Yeah, check the cradle pieces for cracks. They tend to shatter vs bend. I keep a spare set of those on hand. You may have tweaked the engine bay area of the chassis as well.

    Yeah, you have to get a bit more creative with the vxl-3s fan though. It's like a 30x30x7 fan. A 30x30x10 won't lock into the holder very well, if at all. Been a while since I had mine apart.

    Yeah, 18T pinion is way too big, even if your running 2S. The highest I went with the 3800kv 3660 (castle) was 14/54 I believe. That kept it comfortable. I may have only ran 13T in the grass... can't...

    Overheats and shuts down. Many esc's have thermal protection built in. It's best to gear so you never reach that, but if you do, they go into a limp mode (low power) or shut down and won't let you...

    I've found that the 2.0 arms hold up far better than the v1/nitro revo stock arms. I tried a set of RPM arms on my 2.0 (the 2.0 specific from RPM) and had clearance issues. I asked RPM about it and...

    I don't think it's that yours is faulty, I just think it's that your asking more of it than it can produce, so what your seeing is it struggling.

    What you described is what I've seen when gearing...

    Yeah, would be problematic on the stock mount. I use blue gel loctite usually. Orange liquid if it's something the tends to come loose even with the blue.

    Once it's rolling, the motor pulls less amps to keep going, but from a standstill, if you punch it, it pulls a lot of amps. Likely more than the esc wants to deliver.

    With the weight of the...

    Stack up 2 or 3 normal washers. That's what I do. I also use locktite, but I have the kingheadz mount which is aluminum. Guessing the stock one has a M3 nut in it, but I'd still use locktite.

    4000kv is pretty high for a stampede 4x4, especially with a 3650 sized motor. The stock motor is a 3500kv 3660 sized, which likely has considerably more torque. Also, a 60A esc isn't really enough...

    I would just use a good 2.5mm cap head screw with a thick washer (3mm thread). A button head won't let you get much leverage to tighten it without stripping. I usually replace that screw with a new...

    I wonder if that's the same for all of their aluminum upgrades vs steel. I snapped the traxxas aluminum ones on my eJato. The steel ones seemed more prone to bend, but at least I could finish my...

    It lists 9081 as the part with 6781 as optional.

    What's even more odd is that 6781 comes with steel inserts for the x-pins... which makes it even more strange they didn't make the plastic cup to...

    Surprised they didn't use steel inserts like the ERBEv1 diffs.

    @OP, sounds like your center diff may be low on fluid, or you need to thicken it to suit your driving style. It comes with 500K in...
