    Lol. Stock servo lasted over a year for me. I let a friend try it on 3s (I should've put it in training mode). He clipped the right rear tire of my Jeep with the right front tire of the Merv, at full...

    When you say "fully discharged”, do you mean you ran it until the low voltage detector kicked in? Lipos should never be "fully discharged".

    That's how my 1/16 E-revo VXL and Rustler 4x4 VXL are. The antenna tubes are only a few inches long.

    I use a short piece of heat shrink tubing to keep the cap on the antenna tube.

    That's weird. I can't see the pic in my post. I don't recall there being much under the body. Just on the outside of the body, and the wheels were packed. That was taken a few years ago. We haven't...

    After a 40min bash in 3"- 4" of wet/heavy snow with my Merv using Proline Big Joes II tires. It loves the snow.

    I thought I inserted the pic correctly. Apparently I don't know how.

    The ESC fan will plug into the accessory plug on the ESC. The Integy I mentioned comes with a Y adapter.

    I'm using the Traxxas fan on my ESC(#3340). If I'm not mistaken, the Hoss comes with the same fan already installed. On the motor I'm using an Integy T8534BLUE heatsink/dual fan. Both are plug and...

    ESC fan and motor heatsink/fan are a must when running 3s in the Rustler 4x4 VXL. They overheat very easily.

    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.

    Glad you found the issue. Did the previous owner have it shimmed? If you're going to continue running 2s there's no need to spend $80 on the HR rear bulkhead like someone previously mentioned in this...

    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.
