    Will do, but it might be a while (you know how the kids soak up so much time). Enjoy the time with your family!

    El Sob, I'm about a 10 hour drive away, but I'd love that T-bone on the right! Happy 4th of July everybody!

    One idea, are you sure that the motor is mounting flush to the motor mount? I am pretty sure that I had to grind down the "webbing" of the chassis directly below the motor to get it to sit down and...

    Ah yes, I drive through Coos Bay once a year on my annual pilgrimage to Bandon Dunes. Hope you have some friends to bash with. Bashing with a buddy is 2x as fun!

    What made it easy for me was that the VXL ESC has training mode that cuts power (speed) to 50%. Once they grew competent driving on training mode, I'd switch it to "adult mode" for them. They're...

    Yes, you will run into temp issues if you run for more than a few minutes, depending on gearing and use. It's a lot of fun for speed runs, but not really a good ESC for continuous 3s bashing. To be...

    Welcome Sparky! I'd like to suggest a 2WD Stampede for the boy. My kids loved racing around with me and the Stampede is one stout truck!

    Wow, I had no idea! Mine had the fan and must definitely be waterproof from all the times I've packed it with snow ice. At any rate, it's a good combo for 2s.

    I mostly ran 2s when I had that setup, but I found the SW3 to be about as tolerant of 3s as the VXL.

    I put the SW3/3800kv combo on my Slash 4x4 and it did just fine vs the VXL system that my buddy was using. I ran mostly 2s with the occasional 3s bash. He and I ran our trucks side by side and...

    There are a few options for shafts, but the strongest are MIP X-Duty axles. You'll be into it about $100 for all four but they are very stout. I run an 8th scale motor and I've managed to break an...

    The Sidewinder/3800kv combo is great on 2s but runs hot on 3s. The Castle 3800 is a solid motor and the SW3 will do fine as well. I ran that combo for about 18 months on 2 & 3s and it works great;...

    Whatever Dcuda says, pay attention to! Most of my little 2650 build was based on his advice and this dude knows what he's talking about. Thanks again man!

    Your 12mm hexes will last as long as you don't nail the throttle too hard. Exercise a little discipline feathering the throttle and they should last for a while. Also, be sure to double check that...

    Tallj is right on the money, I had forgotten to mention going to 17mm hexes. The 12mm hex won't last long if you punch the throttle with that new motor system on 4s.

    I have the 2650kv motor with the SW8 ESC and I love that combo. Heat is never an issue. Given the option, I prefer having a 5mm shaft because I have seen 3mm shafts break. Yes, you have to buy new...

    A lot of guys will give you different advice depending on how fastidiously they maintain everything and whether they run in water or not. I just replace my wheel bearings when they go out or if I...

    No, although the $21 kit is a good one to have for starters. While it's good to have enough to replace any bearing, you'll find that you wear out different bearings at very different rates. Of...

    Welcome to the Forum!

    First off, you MUST replace your plastic motor mount bearing adapter with the aluminum version right off the bat (TRX 6893X).

    With respect to Shack, the 2650kv motor is most definitely compatible with 2s LiPo. The little basher track I run on is too small for the kind of speed that 3s delivers so I run 2s exclusively on...

    If you go to 3s you'll find that those plastic axles don't last very long at all. On 2s the stock axles are fine but on 3s they just get shredded.

    If you intend to go 3s and/or upgrade the motor & ESC some day, you're going to need better axles. I'd recommend MIP X-Duty. They'll cost about $100 for all four but they'll last much longer than...
