    Definitely true! Just the brushless motor upgrade alone will make up the difference in price and wonít include all the other Ultimate upgrades.

    The Fiesta ST Rally is basically a LCG Slash 4x4 with a brushed motor. My son-in-law bought one this summer and has since upgraded to the brushless motor and has put a truck body on it.

    The MAXX is very well behaved on 3S and the electronics stay cool. IMO, the Maxx is an awesome car.

    Looking at them side by side with the tops off, the top and bottom case are slightly different. Iíd still bet internally they are identical. If these are a de-tuned VXL-6S units they shouldnít ever...

  9. Slash 4x4 clicks and doesn't go forward or back

    If your motor is not spinning when not engaged, it could be. Did your motor and ESC get very hot? If so, let your ESC cool down before trying again. Try spinning your motor by turning the pinion...

    The VXL-3S should do a fine job of powering a 2400Kv motor. There are plenty of people here running that combo.

    Is the VXL-4S actually a VXL-6S?

    Does anybody know if the VXL-4S is just a VXL-6S with different battery leads and sticker? New programming? They are the exact same size and look identical so I'm thinking they are.
