    I'm running the VXL-3S system in Plum Crazy, my 1/16 (?) Rally. It's ABSOLUTELY bonkers, and has NO traction. It's the single silliest car I've ever driven. 10/10 would do again.

    Did it with an old E-Revo 1.0, and it's a blast to drive. 10/10, would do again!

    If you can't turn it off, it's because the ESC has gone into low voltage protection. I have had that issue with my other trucks, when LVP has kicked in.

    Try a slipper eliminator, or the 6780 center differential. The XO-1 driveshafts are expensive, but they're also pretty bulletproof, and well worth the investment. Some folks on here swear by the MIP...

    I'll have to check T-Bone out. I'm just concerned that it will be dragging the ground.

    On the flip side, better than swapping chassis AGAIN.:rolleyes:

    VXL3S system, running dual 3S batteries (in parallel) on a Ken Block Rally edition.

    MAXIMUM HOONAGE! :lol:

    Next step: figuring out how to effectively drift the thing.:O.o:
  7. Suggestions for strengthening the front of the 1/16 chassis?

    I have a 1/16 Ken Block Rally that I've completely rebuilt into a VXL-3S powered terror. The only problem is, I've hit a curb a couple times, and broken the front of the chassis off. Are there any...

    The 1/16 (really 1/12--measure it) responds really well to TSM. I'm running a VXL3S system on mine, and it is a freakin' MISSILE! If I could get traction, it might be even more fun, if that's...

    Important lesson learned

    I had to paint a couple bodies this weekend, so I figured I'd do like the old days, and give them a squirt of brake cleaner, and wipe dry.

    Yeah, no matter what Kevin Talbot says, DON'T DO IT....

    To make sure you don't have an expensive bill, seal the O-ring around the receiver box, and the foam pad area with silicone grease. You can get a tube at your local auto parts store. It won't stop...

    Sounds like you're either overvolting the ESC, or you have it in the wrong battery mode. Call the Mighty TRX, and they can set it right for you.

    Nice score!

    I'd run one, and hold the second for emergencies, but that's just me. :lol:

    From experience, DO NOT run it on the MXL-6S ESC. I managed to cook the BEC in one, even after turning...

    Anybody ever thought about putting a zerk fitting on the bulkheads, and pumping them full of grease, for running in nasty conditions?

    Yes, I have too much time on my hands.:lol:

    2x 2255 is major overkill. I'm running a single 2255, and the truck handles extremely well. If it were my truck, I'd save the money, and run a single 2255.

    Torque control just keeps you from blowing the tires off the rims when you squeeze the throttle on the drag car. It allows the power to apply gradually, so you can launch the car.

    Tracks aren't just for slow. They're also great on sand and snow, and depending on the make, you can get a decent turn of speed out of them. There's videos of the E-Revo VXL on tracks that show it...
