    Well of course the back is tight, there is no steering in the rear :p

    Yeah, a fair amount of slack or "loosness" is normal. Every joint has a little slack and it all adds up. Of course, from...

    Agreed that you are talking about a minuscule market. For the most part, the people who would appreciate the upgrades are also the same people who would simply perform the upgrades themselves. Most...

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

    Never again.

    Stampede (2wd) and Stampede 4x4 bodies are interchangeable. The holes in the bodies are at the same locations. The Bigfoot body should work fine on a Stampede 4x4.

    I did this with the Stampede 4x4 that I built as a casual project, mostly from spare parts. I didn't have a spare front differential or a spare center drive-shaft so I left those components out and...

    OP said that the clicking goes away if his pinion and spur are not meshed, so that would imply that nothing downstream of the spur is the source of the clicking.

    That's normal. Every joint or gear mesh between the motor and the wheels has a little bit of slack, and it all adds together.



    If you no longer hear the clicking sound when rolling your...

    4-pole motors do tend to be "notchy" as you describe. It's normal. The "notchy" feeling is stronger with a larger motor because the magnets are larger. You might perceive that as feeling almost...

    I run a debris cover sometimes. They do a great job of keeping debris out, but also do a great job of trapping heat inside. I only use mine these days if it's practically freezing temperatures...

    The plastic CVDs would only be a mistake if you don't get good life out of them. I guess only time will tell. Depends on how hard you are on your vehicle really.

    It's probably a matter of how hard you bash, but I'd be inclined to say keep the Stampede 4x4. You already have a working truck, that you can work on and upgrade at your leisure, and once upgraded,...

    I think part of the problem is your tires. The Slash 4x4 is a fairly heavy vehicle, with a larger chassis than the Stampede4x4, Rustler4x4, or Hoss4x4. A big motor and heavy battery pack only adds...

    They are fairly comparable. The motor is the same. The ESC will come down to preference. Would you rather access your ESC using Castle software or Traxxas software?

    Yeah it will work fine with the Velineon motor. You will need to solder on new connections to the motor wire or use adapters, because the existing connectors will not be the same size. I believe...

    It's normal for a brushless motor with 4 poles or more to feel "notchy" as you describe. 2-pole brushless motors tend to feel more smooth when you turn them by hand.

    It doesn't sound like there is a problem. Do you have any actual functionality issues (while actually driving, not just while playing with the spur)?

    By your logic I guess a Rustler 4x4 is a Stampede also?

    Common platform shares common parts. That's actually a good thing, not a bad thing.
