    So last weekend I clipped the front wheel on a post, destroying the driveshaft in the process. Anyways, my order for one 6851A (as called for by the Rustler 4x4 VXL exploded view) is in fact grey....

    I agree with this advice! If you're putting down too much torque, loosen the slipper clutch to absorb it.

    A properly meshed pinion gear wouldn't have caused that. It's possible the clearance was too tight against the spur, or the screw holding the motor in place walked backed enough to cause the edge of...

    I keep having to add a drop of oil in the fan bushing every week or so. I'm getting tired of having to unscrew the charger to perform this. I'm going to install some cheap quick release latches...

    The color might be slightly off depending on the batching process of molding them, but for all intents and purposes, they still qualify as "black" IMHO. Additionally, they should still be the same...

    I managed something similar - the screw that holds the rear-right turnbuckle to the rear bulkhead came out pulling the plastic threads from that bulkhead.

    I ended up replacing the rear-bulkhead....

    If you can pony up the extra cash, I highly recommend the GTR shocks. You only need aluminum caps if you're sticking with the stock shocks. GTR plastic caps are solid and reliable.

    Watt hours (Wh) = Volts (V) x Amp hour (Ah). To convert mAh to Ah, just take the mAh and by 1000.

    Wh = V x (mAh 1000)

    It depends on the capacity of the LiPo and its charge status. If it's large AND charged fully, a punctured LiPo will vent and shoot flames. :eek: The raging fire will cause a thermal run-away...

    I didn't see any Hobbywing fans with the specs needed. Actually, the specs are rather specific to the point where I hunted one down on digikey.com

    Per the parts list for the Rustler 4x4 VXL, the only "grease" listed for diffs is the "Traxxas 1647 Silicone Grease". There's also "5136X Differential oil kit (1 each: 10K, 30K, 50K weights)"

    With the Traxxas TQi Link Wireless module (part# 6511), you can adjust forward throttle sensitivity (throttle exponential). Though I'm not sure if you can dial it down enough to "creep".
