    It seems like every upgrade that makes it stiffer (aluminum parts/inserts) the less rocks get in the steering. Maybe, it rolls over debris instead kicking it in...

    Yeah, I drilled the holes out with one of those finger drills (just under 5mm wide, 6mm deep). I just used a M3x6 washer/spacer and a normal screw to set the inserts in flush. No special tools. They...

    My brushed came with 25/70, I don't think they ever revised the gearing. The 35/55 is speed run only according to the PDF.

    I bought two of those aluminum 5pc gear sets for cheap, it has every gear...

    Yes, and the aero mods you do affect it as well. I have two bodies, in stock form the fox Mustang sometimes wanted to blow over at 40mph+. To fix that I made a front splitter, a rear undertray (a...

    Fun build, I havent driven mine since the lockdown. Last year I slowly ended up collecting one of each spring rate, I like stiffer if I want to to 40-45ish mph figure 8s.

    I found that the plastic motor mount warps from torque and heat, eventually I started noticing an oscillating noise when I drove mine. Your old gears probably got worn over time and it wasn't as...

    I thought there had to be a better way to stiffen it. I put 36 of these threaded inserts throughout the chassis. M3x6mm stainless inserts.

    It's so much more solid and rigid. I only have this RC,...

    I finally ran this gear last month a few times. 27/62 is perfect, 120-130 degree temps on the motor and esc. It has a near 1:1 rollout ratio.

    As a bonus it easier on the tires, they last longer,...

    I had a real fox body and I got a replacement... lol.

    When I saw it I jumped on it, mine was one of the first ten preorders. While I was waiting for it I researched chassis...

    I've heard brushed is best for drifting, but if you want to go brushless then use a sensored system to drift.

    I don't know... You'd probably need a custom carbon fiber chassis and a longer driveshaft made. Or cut the stock chassis across the middle, extend and mend. Still need a driveshaft though.

    Servo?

    I've had good luck with filing the front knuckles so the axle stubs don't rub on them. The axle anodizing wore off with the first run. It makes the car much more fun and predictable I...

    What about just removing the hold down and using velcro brand tape (because its the strongest) on the chassis and pack.

    I made a custom front splitter from 1mm lexan and a larger rear diffuser to fill in the chassis gaps like on the X-01. I can say it really works, My body was ready to blow over at 45mph, I'm waiting...

    I haven't gone as high as 45wt, but I'm loving 40wt with the 3 hole pistons on an ex-Kmart lot that probably hasn't been paved in 20 years. I was up there last week, so many good empty parking lots...

    They sell them as an upgrade for the 4T2, so it's lucky you already have some. I have the strc shocks, aluminum bodies do make a difference. If they have the TiNi shafts that's a bonus too.
