    On a brushed pede you should not need a metal spur. If the plastic one stripped out there is some other issue. Maybe a bad initial mesh or something bad in the driveline. I use plastic spurs on all...

    If you liked the talons get some of those. It's okay to use stock parts if they work for you. I run talons on a couple trucks for just that reason... Kinda grippy, but not too grippy.

    You should not need to go mod 1. Gearing depends on your goals and your environment. That said, I have that motor in one of my pedes and I use 18/54 (32p). I mostly bash it and with that gearing it's...

    I think stock plastic is 2.5. TRX aluminum gets you 4 or 1 if you swap them left to right.

    Sounds like you started with the brushed motor truck. If that's the case you could swap out the differentials for the vxl versions. Or just increase the pinion size a bit to compensate.

    Have you tried softer springs or less preload?

    The mini slash rolls waaay more than the Merv... You really have to slow down before you even think of turning on a grippy surface.

    If you want to go with GTRs they are great. If you want to spend a bit less grab the aluminum shock caps for the stock ultra shocks and some new fluid.

    I tried some like the first set you listed. They were not good. Leaked, springs included were terrible. Stock ultra shocks with aluminum caps are way better IMHO.

    Yep, diff oil is what you want inside the diff. Maybe they were thinking of outside on the big ring gear. 30 to 50 weight is common, some go much higher.

    It's ok, but with big tires on they don't hit the ground till the front is pretty high up there. Might work better as a wheelie bar with stock size tires. Definitely durable.
