    Tires made one of the most noticeable differences, in my opinion. You can't go wrong with 2.2 Proline Trenchers for bashing. I may try the Proline Badlands next. They look very aggressive, and I've...

    I've been using the Hobbypark red hex hubs for 2 years or so with no problems on 2s and 3s.
    As far as the steel hollow balls, I'm still using the factory screws.

    A 50mph impact, and you have no idea how it happened? Try putting it in trading mode. Once you learn how to control it, try it without training mode.

    I don't recall them ballooning. The rear beads kept breaking loose. After regluing them a few times, I ordered the Prolines. The sidewalls on the Talons were pretty torn up at that point.

    Were you able to run 3s with the stock Talons? Mine were shot within a week on 2s. I had Trenchers on it before I got the 3s.

    What's your budget? I see you posted about getting a 2s last weekend. You'd be surprised how much power it makes on 2s compared to an NiMh battery. If you're dead set on getting 3s, you're probably...

    I don't use NiMh, but I would imagine you'd be better off with a pair of 2s LiPo. Similar runtime, better performance, and they actually fit in the battery trays.

    It should feel a little tight when shimmed correctly.
    If it didn't need shims, you wouldn't have a stripped diff.

    That's cool. All comes down to personal preference, I guess. I have it dialed in nicely, as is. Stripped the diffs once in 2017, not long after I got it. Hasn't been an issue since.

    Cool. If they were running two 2s Lipos, it's probably a parallel connector.

    Nice looking truck. The series connector is for NiMh batteries. You need an older style parallel connector to run two Lipos.
