    I'm starting to think the plastic steering linkage can also be an issue. I know a lot of people talk about changing it out for metal and loosing a lot of play. And I notice my steering has the most...

    I'm gonna go against the grain and say big bores. I don't see a reason to spend extra on GTR shocks. I have used big bores for about 8 years on everything..including giant skate park jumps. Never a...

    I've had this problem for like forever. I don't think they ever truly track straight when the wheels are in the air but I could be wrong. On my old 2wd rustler I did add some shims to some of the...

    Yeah, if I barely squeeze the trigger, thing is flying already. Seems like its gotta be an ESC or TX issue even with the hard turn.

    VXL 3-S Issues

    So I blew out my last VXL motor (about 12 years old) and just got a seemingly brand new motor and ESC combo off eBay. Only problem is the slightest throttle input gives what feels like 80% power. I...

    I see I have the 2 pole ESC as well. Thank you for doing the research. Looks like I'll pick up a castle system.

    I am not sure if my ESC is a 4 pole or 2 pole. I have heard that traxxas used to include the 4 pole ESC with the 2 pole motor. I know a 2 pole ESC won't work with a 4 pole motor but I have read the...

    Update... Upon opening the motor I see that the magnet on the rotor is split clean in half. So it looks like I will just be replacing the motor. Lesson learned on why you shouldn't use a 2 pole...

    Aluminum steering and castor block as well as aluminum shock caps are must haves. Also RPM A Arms are a good addition.

    Is my ESC broken?

    I have tried multiple batteries with my 10+ year old VXL ESC and when I accelerate the car bogs and the ESC eventually goes from green to red. Yes my LVC is on. The wires leading from the ESC also...

    What I did today and most everyday is continue to find screws I forgot to loctite and have thus fallen out. It's nice that my car isn't breaking anymore at least. Though I did have a fan fly clean...

    I know I may possibly need new bearings, but I'm just gonna wait until after winter for that or they will just be trashed again lol. My slop isn't bad at the moment though.

    I'll continue with eyeballing then. I'm also starting to think the wing may be affecting things since I'm mainly having issues at higher speeds. My wing is super bent up so I may just take it off.

    I'm also looking at this hobbywing combo as I realized my car does not really pull wheelies after I first start running. I'm using an older VXL 2 pole motor and I'm wondering if the 4x4 drive train...

    I do love some giant skate park jumps. I may hold off with this cold weather though. I will likely go with MIP CV's when I need to upgrade since they are slightly cheaper than the traxxas steel...

    I just tested the yokes. They all feel pretty secure and I know there is no play in the diffs themselves currently. I'm gonna work on the alignment once I get parts in. But I'm very curious how this...
