    If you are going to go with the center diff, then go with the version with the metal case for sure.

    But don't assume that the Center Diff is automatically an upgrade over the Slipper Clutch. They...

    You could swap in a Slash 4x4 Chassis. You would also need a Slash 4x4 center driveshaft, to accommodate the longer chassis.

    To use a Slash 4x4 body you would need to also replace the front and...

    Wow you really went out of your way to make one of the most obnoxiously sarcastic, least helpful posts I've seen on here in a while. I'm sure your valuable contribution to the community is much...

    I have not got the impression that Traxxas support has gone downhill. They only have so much control over global supply issues, and because this is a new vehicle, there probably isn't much existing...

    I use a Castle Mamba Monster X in my Slash 4x4 Monster Truck, which is at least as big as the Sidewinder 8th. I was able to do that by re-locating the receiver box to the alternate mounting location...

    I'd suggest gearing something along the lines of 18/54 and going from there. Although the Mamba Max Pro can handle all the way up to 6s, it's a pretty small ESC and the Slash 4x4 is a pretty heavy...

    The clipless body mounting system is a function of the shock towers.

    The Hoss 4x4 shock towers can be replaced by Slash 4x4 / Stampede 4x4 shock towers, which are a direct fit, cheap, and easy to...

    Shoe Goo is about as close to perfect as you're going to get, with it's combination of being super durable while remaining at least somewhat flexible. In all of my bodies that I've repaired with...

    It's a shame, as so many of the former free services (photobucket, tinypic, etc) have stopped offering free hosting, many taking the VERY shady route of turning all of their formerly hosted pictures...

    Duratrax tires look nice but they are cheap - not just in terms of price but also quality. They use thin rubber. This means that they not only balloon like crazy but are also prone to tearing...

    Yeah the Bandit has plenty of potential, especially if you are comparing it against buggies from 20-30 years ago.

    One thing the Bandit has going for it compared to other current buggies is that it...

    Anyone who strips the plastic gears in their 2075 would be better off buying a $20 set of metal gears and converting their 2075 into a 2075X instead of junking their stripped 2075 and spending $50...

    I use two 2s LiPo packs stacked on top of each other in my Slash 4x4 and Stampede 4x4. I usually use them with a series adapter as a 4s Pack. Occasionally I use them with a parallel adapter as a...

    It's the same on my 2wd Rustler - thicker hexes in the front.

    I only upgraded the rears on that truck. Hexes get stripped due to torque from the motor. The front wheels on a 2wd truck don't...

    The Hoss 4x4 is a great truck. There are a large number of Traxxas vehicles that all share a common platform (shares most of the parts). This includes the Slash 4x4, Rustler 4x4, Stampede 4x4,...

    A little bit of "puffing" on the end is not really what a LiPo does when it puffs. It will swell up all along the length of the entire battery. Here is an example of a Traxxas pack I had that had...

    The sway bars might help a little bit, but don't expect a huge difference. They are really meant for racing, where you have a clean and finely-tuned vehicle and want every last bit of advantage. ...

    Are you planning to keep the Sidewinder 4? Your ESC would be very under-powered compared to your motor at that point, and you would probably hit thermal shutdown on the ESC often. Castle sells the...

    Yes it would take a much stronger crash to break a 5mm shaft instead of a 1/8th" (~3.2mm) shaft.

    It's a much bigger deal with a larger motor, but it's not exclusive to larger motors. Usually...

    1/8th inch, which is about 3.2mm. It's the smaller shaft size common on 1/10th scale vehicles.

    Never again.
