    If all of that is true, then why does all of the evidence point to another scenario that is happening? Businesses are not surviving using the tactics aforementioned regardless of a supplier problem....

    It is a fair price. I think what customers would be interested to know, is if the precision fit of the hex drivers is as good as MIP.

    I actually have to give my MIP's a tug to disengage them from...

    Good point Double G!

    I had been in continuous contact with Castle for quite some time about a particular combination they sell. It is the Mamba Monster X with the 2200Kv motor (1515 1Y).

    What does that mean? I looked at the Castle direct site (Yes, I know they're a higher price) and the Castle site would be lucky to have a paper clip in stock or not back-ordered! So if other...

    Welcome back to the hobby and to the forums!

    I bought a 1/16 E-Revo VXL back in 2009 and the only thing that happened to that motor in 2019 was that I had to replace the rotor. Now I can tell you...

    Yes, the down force at speed is effective. I tried mine without the wing reaching for that elusive 50mph speed, and the rear end was all over the place without it. Think of it like a true-track for...

    Hmm!

    The 12 tooth pinion is the lowest I saw on the Traxxas site.

    I'm trying to remember something though. I got the gearing chart for the VXL motor and most of the gearing is recommended for...

    I accidentally posted before I saw this was for the Titan motor.

    I thought it was for the brushless, which can run as low as a 16 tooth pinion with the 50 and 55 tooth spur.

    ESC Fan

    I only run my Merv on 3S, so I was a bit irritated when using the stock wheels and tires because the tires would always start peeling away from the rims. I'm not talking about ballooning; I'm talking...

    No worries, I just wanted to make sure the gauge of wire throughout your installation was of the same gauge (or close to each other) and resistance.

    Good to hear and know. Do you know off hand the gauge of the wire coming out of the ESC to the batteries? Probably 10 gauge, but in light of the 6.5mm bullet receiver slot surprise, now I'm curious.

    I was pretty certain motors that big had the 8 gauge wire. Now you know why I was shocked to find out the Max 5 ESC has 6.5mm bullet receiver slots. Those ESC's were meant for 10 gauge wire because...

    That is kind of what I was thinking. If you would've got the 5898 can; then I could see the reason to maybe use the Mod 1.5 gears. They are thicker than what I thought as well.
