    Thanks for the input everyone. It just didn't occur to me when placing the order to also get some of the gears as well. Unless total destruction happens within a few days of the upgrade, I'll have...

    I don't think spray paint would hold up well on an RC car. The plastic does a lot of bending and flexing, plus all the scratches and stuff it'll take. Dye won't chip off and it soaks into the...

    The rear Protrac arms add some toe-in, that helped a lot when I first did it but it's still not perfect.

    As far as droop goes, if I push down on the truck so it hits the ground, the rear end lifts...

    Keeping it going straight on gravel.

    Been awhile since I've posted, but I'm getting the RC itch again now that the sun is out and the snow is gone.

    Time to tackle my next problem: My Rustler likes to fishtail on my driveway.

    Hah. What green peace doesn't know doesn't hurt 'em.


    Related note: Holy crap my E-Maxx is fast now. Seems to be as fast if not faster than my brushless Rustler. This motor and ESC ROCKS!

    Been a few months since I've done anything. I decided to upgrade to brushless finally, went with Kershaw Designs Gen 2.2 6s kit with a 2364kv motor. I also ordered a programming card to go with it.

    Brushless motors, like brushed motors, don't need to be waterproofed. They are all waterproof out of the box. It's only ESCs that you need to worry about.

    The flux ring is the metal band around the Titan 550 and Titan 775. Traxxas puts the stickers on them, that's one way to identify them on the Titans. It helps with the magnetic field the motors...

    Can you be more specific as to what Jeep Cherokee body you're referring to?

    This is the only one I can find and it appears to only be for 1/10th scale crawlers and not 1/8th scale monster trucks....

    If you want to do things like that you need to either do the two speed upgrade so you have a low gear, or you need to drastically reduce your gearing. I've seen videos of people using a 775 to tow...

    Well my E-Maxx just got two 2075 servos today scavenged from other vehicles and I won a black and red brushless edition on eBay just a few minutes ago. Add that to its Christmas list.

    The RPM tower is a good option as well, also cheaper. I'd be surprised if you manage to break an RPM part, you almost have to outright abuse and misuse your vehicles to accomplish that.

    Skip the MG995s... they're laden with lots of issues. Search around the web for reviews to see what I mean.

    The MG996r however, now that's an excellent servo. I have one in my Rustler and love it.

    Don't bother with the dual 650s. Just get a single 700 sized motor such as the Titan 775. Cheaper, easier to maintain, lighter and uses a bit less power. If you're going brushless in the future why...

    RPM carriers have an open hole on the pivot ball screw that the allen wrench goes into. I really don't see it as an issue though.
