    I know a lot of racers who use to heat the triggers of their radio and then bend them to fit their finger more snug. You could try this and possibly move the trigger even closer to the grip.

    I agree it sounds like you have a bad motor there. Did you follow the break-in directions for the motor? I know I've read about a lot of people having issues with the titans, not sure if it's an...

    That wiki page has a pretty detailed chart on the contents of the specific alloy's, but as a general rule of thumb, I agree, I wouldn't use Wikipedia as a source for a research paper.

    I'm no aluminum expert, but from what I've gathered, the 2024 is the strongest, then the 7075, then the 6061. However; I think any of them would be fine for what you're looking to do, just buy the...

    I was looking at the CC website again and it does say that it's 3s capable with a lower kv motor, but it only recommends 2s in both 2x4 and 4x4 short course trucks with the 3800. Again, I think the...

    I will do my best, but I don't use NiMH that much and I have a VXL system. I found that I would only get ~15 minutes possibly 20 on occasion from my Traxxas 3000 7 cell on the vxl. So I would...

    To put this on your rustler you are going to need some kind of rear body mount. Either a Stampede 2x4 or Slash 2x4 should work. The Stampede body usually uses 4 body clips, but could possibly be...

    I was doing some reading about the Sidewinder sct combo as well. As far as I understood, it's limited to 2s and is not water proof. IMO, it's likely a great system for someone who doesn't have VXL...

    What batteries are we talking about? What kind of charger are you using? Is the vehicle in question stock? I think we're going to need some additional info.

    I use stock talons on my stampede vxl and run 3s almost exclusively. I drilled holes in the tires (the stock rims come with holes in them) and have experienced no problems/tearing and it helps a ton...

    Yeah, thats the batteries I have. They will work on a VXL, but not on a xl-5. You can use 2s lipo's on an xl-5 with a low voltage cutoff. I think some of the newest xl-5 have low voltage...

    Hearing all of the issues with the newer VXL esc's makes me a little nervous. I just received another replaced esc from Traxxas; I grabbed a 3s 5400 lipo that had been sitting around for a bit...

    I have that exact charger and it really works well for typical Nimh and Lipo use. I heard that it will only charge up to 6 amps or so, so if you have some very high capacity batteries (mostly lipo)...

    I use my dremel for most holes, I either use a cone type grinder bit or a spiral saw bit. I have also used reamers and drill bits in the past.
