    Oh yeah it is. If you get a strong enough servo and get in a crash, sometimes the plastic horn will strip around the splines which key into the servo output gear (even with a servo saver in the...

    Iíve used AE diff and Losi Shock oils since Iíve been in the hobby because thatís what my LHS had when I started in the hobby, and they usually go by wt so Iíve just gotten used to knowing what wt...

    You donít have to use the balance wire in the esc. Just get some regular male traxxas battery plugs and solder the main positive and negative wires to the connector. If youíre doing dual battery...

    Yes you can dunk the whole motor and itís wires in the distilled water. Distilled water is one of the best insulators. I get a gallon of water from food lion for under a dollar, cut the top off, drop...

    Yeah a brushed motorís life can be drastically reduced if run in very dirty conditions. Sand is basically a no-no. Mud kills them too. After a run in a messy environment, spray non-chlorinated brake...

    With a new brushed motor, run it in distilled water at about half throttle for 10 minutes. This is called breaking in the motor, and it lets the brushes wear to fit the commutator better to allow for...

    Meant to say mamba monster x** not mamba x. Letís stay away from that since itís a less powerful esc that those weíve been mentioning.

    The mamba x can be run in water, they just say to remove the fan. Technically it is less waterproof than the mm2 since the rx wires and data wire plug into pins on the mmx circuit board, but thatís...

    The 2400kv motor makes slightly more rpm due to the kv rating, and the 2200 makes much more torque since it has a larger diameter. Brushless motto power is directuly proportional to the volume of the...

    If youíre on a very tight budget, consider the Hobbywing Quicrun 120. Its insanely powerful in a small size. I run two in my brushless sensored Clodbuster on 2s with 4600kv motors and its a beast. I...

    Mamba monster 2 is the only one made for real 1/8 scales. The sidewinder 1/8 is close behind but the mamba can deliver more current. Sidewinder 4 is also capable but rated for less power. Plus the...

    Yes, the center diff will be fine. When I had a slash 4x4 I usually ran it on 2 and 3s lipo with a 3000kv motor, but I did throw in my mm2 and cc2200kv motor on 3-5s and it handled it just fine. I...

    Okay, I didnít know about some chip. But if you were to use the adapters I was mentioning, those would be so you can charge your ID plug-equipped LiPo in any charger other than an ID plug-equipped...

    When I said itís not a good idea, I was thinking of if we went to using traxxas batteries since theyíre the only ones that use ID female plugs, and they have their balance plugs built into the...

    When I put a mamba monster 2200kv motor and mm2 esc in my slash 4x4 years ago, I ran 18/53 gearing and I was pretty good. I usually ran 3s lipo. LCG chassis. You can check your estimated top speed...

    The traxxas aluminum and strc aluminum ones are great choices. Iíd stay away from rpm unless youíre off-road bashing. The aluminum ones are great for racing and road bashing since they donít flex and...

    Just called Traxxas earlier and a rep told me that the 2075R makes the same torque and is faster than the 2075 and 2075X servos. It makes 125oz-in of torque and he estimated it at .12 second speed at...

    For short term, get integy diff cases and LEM diff parts. For long term, do the LST diff mod and use the adapters that have recently surfaced in the Maxx news lol.

    Yes you can, and get one with above 200oz of torque. The savox 1231 servo is a great option, at 444oz torque and .14sec reaction time at 6v

    The losi diffs hold oil great if you built them right. You gotta use either green slime or special o-ring grease on the o-rings, and nothing for the gasket that's between the cup and ring gear. I've...

    If the pushrods you were previously using had spacers on them, you just remove the spacers and use the rods.
