    I've had the VXL system in it, from when it was a stampede 2wd. It's crazy, with the 1/8th scale 2200kv motor on 6s. Even on 3-4s tires blow and gears explode. You should be careful when driving it

    I was trying to warn you, Ive had all steel transmissions on the street blow up with 1/8th scale motors. Before you solder I definitely recommend heatshrink over tape. I also used a 2inch wide by 4...

    Normally I suggest 1/8th scale systems, but in your case I would strongly advise against it. You WILL burn through transmission gears. You WILL mesh driveshafts if you bash. You are underestimating...

    Our venom batteries always go out, and perform pretty badly. The warranty is better than the product itself. We've bought lots of venom batteries but not anymore, sorry.

    3s lipo battery recommendations

    I'm slowly getting back into RC cars and I want new batteries for my rustler. What brands are good now? I'd obviously be using these together for a 6s set up, so I don't want to spend an arm and leg...

    I would look into flysky transmitters and receivers, they're really good for pretty cheap.

    Venom batteries aren't the best, but if you have a problem they got the best warranty. But I'd stick with SMC or traxxas.

    Well it's a rustler but almost the same I guess. These are all really general rules: 32pitch gears (a plastic spur is fine even in sand and a steel pinion is a good idea, aluminum gets torn up) I...

    You can, yes. What I did was melt them down into like a flat plate for my rustler. But squares or whatever woukd work for a slash.

    I just put weights on the front of my car. I need more than the average Joe with 6s but some weight will definitely help and also help control the car. Just an idea for you.

    The biggest thing I really think that would help, no offense, is being able to control your rc car. I never spin out of control even with my street tires in loose dirt. Shocks and tires and gyros...

    Well with my experience, Vxl isn't as durable. My Vxl motor blew up. My castle creations hasn't. Now I'm comparing a tenth scale motor to a eighth scale motor.

    GRP tires are my favorite. They grip good once you warm them up to 100-120 degrees fahrenheit but since it's becoming winter here in PA that's not easy lol. Is this for off roading or on roading?

    I wouldn't see much of a problem honestly. Differentials are made for differing speeds back to front. And since you already used different tires I doubt there will be any problems
