    rcscrews was the set a buddy and me tried back in the day when we had t-maxx's. After having them snap off in our bulkheads, we stopped using them. The black oxide mcmaster screws I use usually bend...

    Make sure the chassis bottoms out before the shocks do. I ran into issues when I increased my tire size from 3.3 maxx tires to 3.8" trenchers. I had to move the lower pushrods ends out to a further...

    The standard hard case packs should work. I used SMC 2S hard case in mine and ended up taking 3 of them apart to build 2 3S packs, but still used the case halves for the top/bottom.

    Also,...

    I usually just reach under the body and touch the flywheel with my tuning screwdriver handle. Plugging the pipe works, but it also has a tendency to shove a lot of excess fuel into the engine which...

    I had the 2.8 chevrons on my stampede for quite a while and while it didn't seem to be all that bad, I found out how little traction I had when I put the 2.8 trenchers on it and then constantly...

    I only went with the GTR's because the VDK pistons fit in them. Then I could slow the compression with heavier oil while still having relatively quick rebound to make it less "bouncy" in the rough...

    Pretty sure it's designed to bottom out. If you set it up so stiff that it doesn't bottom out, you end up snapping shock shafts or at the very least burning through shock ends/pushrod ends at an...

    The GTR's will give you more tuning options as you can then run the VDK in them. That's what I have on my stampede 4x4 with the gtr's. I drilled the holes in the pistons out to 1/16" (smallest bit I...

    Still, tough to shove 6S in that thing for those of us with saddle packs for the ERBEv2. Just an aggravation.

    I'm really happy I converted my ERBEv1 to a v2, but I don't want to go through that...

    I'd believe it!

    If I took stock of everything I "upgraded" on my stampede 4x4 to try and make it what the maxx became... it wouldn't be much less! And it's still too small really for the grassy...

    The e-revo 2.0 tires are super heavy too. They weigh more than my 3.8" trenchers. I wouldn't want to run those on a truck as light as the maxx appears to be. That's a lot of rotating mass for it to...

    Stainless steel screws are horrible. They are very soft, strip easy and break easy. I'd rather have a bit of rust than having stripped screws constantly or screws that snap off and leave a stump in a...

    I really like the 2.8 and 3.8 trenchers. I have the 2.8's on my stampede 4x4 brushless and converted ejato. They stay relatively pliable when cold. The traxxas chevron tires are horrible in the...

    I retract my comment from my earlier post, the blue DS3225 kind of stinks. It doesn't hold well. If I lean on it, it will give about 15% of the throw in both directions, then hold. Having a servo...

    Maybe one is spiral cut and the other is straight cut? I know arrma does that on their 6S trucks/buggy... not 100% sure why they do it. The buggy/short course use straight cut gears and the trucks...

    I really wonder why traxxas went with those wheels/tires on that thing. Why not go with a more traditional 3.8"? They have 4 or more styles of their own 3.8's to only come out and use a strange 2.8"...

    Yes, I just put that motor in as the 2200kv I had in it came from my ERBEv1 and had 3 years or so of 4S abuse on it. The arrma motor is a bit lower kv at 2050kv, so hoping it won't work the esc as...

    Hate to say it... but arrma's 4S series wheels/tires are lower profile of their 6S tires. They are 17mm as well. I believe the 4S kraton wheels are 1/2" offset and the 4S outcast are 0 offset, so may...

    It's there as a bearing spacer to avoid the bearings being side loaded when you tighten down the wheel nut. I know I needed to mess with the spacing as when I cranked down the wheel nut, the slotted...

    I have larger 1/8th trucks as well as a stampede 4x4 and one of my better bash locations is an hour drive, then a 1/4 mile walk from the road. So I tend to take a lot with me. I also have to go...

    I'm guessing my v1 diffs lasted because I dialed the punch down quite a bit and had a general habit of rolling on the throttle. I never blew a diff in my v1. I'd replace the bearings once a year, but...

    I use white lightning clean ride chain lube. It's wax in a thin liquid that evaporates after a few minutes then leaves a thin coat of wax on everything. It doesn't attract dirt like oil/grease does....

    Kind of sounds like my motor I had in mine, just a bit louder. It howled at WOT. My motor/esc first came from my v1 erbe (mxl-6s/castle 2200kv). The esc died on the 3rd 6S run in the 2.0 chassis. I...

    Doesn't matter much where you drill the holes, but the length of rope is what controls the angle, so if you left extra, you could adjust it however you want. I'd put the rope holes at the middle or...
