    People often miss the true scale of what we do. Consider running your Stampede through grass that is just barely reaching the top of it's tires. That is about 4 inches at 1/10th scale that is about...

    I always worried about over heating the paint with a hair dryer so I never tried it. But I do have one of those large capacity dehumidifiers on wheels. We use it hang dry clothes in the bathroom on...

    For me it is the smell of it. I have experienced most of the smells an electric RC produces. Magic smoke has a distinctive odor. Also before spending more than $50 of aftermarket parts buy a $20 temp...

    Oh wait are we not considering the 3s as also in series? Because then it seems like an apples to oranges comparison I may have misunderstood.

    The critical point is around 50mph depending on wind conditions. That is when the Slash becomes more airborne than land happy.

    Holy cow could you misunderstand more often or is it just your way of frustrating people? I never said bad. It is a condition that is not planned for. The length of the power mains from the motor to...

    I grabbed a roll-cage a year or so back but have not gone back to it to attach panels or anything. I tried to find foam rubber tubing to use as scale looking padding but never worked out all that...

    I believe you are having a battery with a cell or 2 calling for retirement causing amperage fluctuation not bad enough to effect the servo. I would test another battery, sometimes LHS will have a...

    They work surprisingly well on pavement and other hard surfaces that allow them some bite. Loose debris or gravel tho and they get slippery. But so far for Duratrax they are not wearing too fast. I...

    I have recently found that SMC has dropped the 1500mah 3s battery they had for the MERV. So I settled on a Venom 3s 1500mah battery but it was the last one Amazon had so not an adequate solution.

    If it is the VXL the only real option as of late is the stock VXL 380 brushless motor. If you have the brushed MERV then you have lots of options and "best" is really up to you.

    1 - No they are used to detect the position of the shaft. Causing the adjustments made by the ESC from the sensor readings incorrect since the sensors would not be affected. Because the sensors don't...

    With brushless timing is done slightly different than brushed where you turn the end bell of the motor. With brushless the esc changes the signal timing and the length of the wires are part of the...

    As it is true you can destroy any axle with abuse the stock Rustler 4x4/extreme duty axles can handle 3s use quiet well. But if you want to go all out Kevin Talbot on your rig mip might be your only...

    For most people these adapters will work fine but understand they will make any settings for "timing" inaccurate if you use them.

    I have actually given this some thought and have talked to a few manufactures of the fluids used. I change my diff fluid every 120-150 hours of use or every 4-6 months of mixed use/storage. For most...

    I see you don't understand what I am talking about. And I am sick of teaching the same stuff over and over. Learn what servo resolution is and you might get it.

    My real point was that for a 1/16th rig a smooth brushless system wouldn't be cheap. The stock brushed motor is pretty fast already and would be smooth at low speed on the cheap.

    That is because cogging is less the heavier the rig and those 2 are much heavier than a 1/16th rig. Plus cogging in a sensored system is more about the ESC than the motor and I bet you don't have a...
