    I'm with this guy. Just seems like your adding potential problems because you can. I have a box full of backup servos. I run a single 300oz on my ERBEv2 with 3.8" trenchers and it does just fine.

    Considering the cost and how long it lasts, just seems to make sense to use something that holds up longer, unless it adds a lot of drag to the system.

    I used the same tub of typical axle grease...

    I started running electric 3 years or so ago and the v1 brushless revo was my first. I got the truck, 9000mah 2S packs and the traxxas dual charger. Since the charger only put out 5A to 2 packs at...

    I forgot to comment on the stampede... while it's a very capable truck, I've found it to be lacking when running in grass a lot. It's great for dirt and skate parks, but the low ground clearance and...

    I just use a 1/8" drill bit in my dremel with light pressure and a relatively high speed. Kind of burns a hole in the tire. Been doing this for 20 years and have yet to have a tire rip at the hole I...

    That should fit and work fine, but you may need the battery extender kit.

    NOt sure what the deal is with your link, but I think this was the pack you were pointing at:...

    Up to 6.5A is safe. I think SMC typically suggests 1C charging with 2C capable.

    The idle set screw on the carb should be set so that it can't fully close regardless of the servo linkage. When the servo is at "idle" postion, the carb slide should be resting on the idle screw in...

    What brand motor and what esc are you using? I thought if you didn't run a 6 pole motor with an esc that supports it, it runs at a lower kv.

    NiMH and NiCAD can be run down to 0v. When taken off the light/motor/whatever, they recover a bit and by the time they are room temp, I just charge them back up. Kind of does a force cycle of them....

    I run my receiver packs down all the way to nothing using a bulb in the spring. Then I let them cool, charge them at 1A, let them cool, run them down again, then charge at .5A. The morning before I...

    The biggest issue is the bearings, especially the wheel hub bearings for me. I only run a couple of my trucks in the winter. The ERBEv2 and Stampede 4x4 vxl. I put holes in the tires to let water get...

    I prefer the savox 1210sg, it's listed as waterproof and does pretty well on 6V, better on 7.4V. I ran it in my outcast with trencher 3.8's on 6V for over a year. Recently upgraded the esc and now...

    Wildcat - high oil content, very messy stuff
    Traxxas - pretty high oil content
    Dynamite - made everything blue

    Have you been running it in snow? Tires get snow/water in them and it makes them horribly out of balance. As @Infinity suggests, drilling holes in the tires allows the water to fling out when your...

    I've been putting my receivers in a balloon for 20 years. Always seemed to work. For added protection against vibrations rubbing holes in the balloon, I wrap it with a few layers of electrical tape,...

    I've never driven one with anything like that, so I can't say. I'm sure it does help, especially for those going 50mph+. For most of what I do, I rarely reach top speeds anyway, but the stampede is...

    I've used quite a few fuels over the years and have been using byrons race 2500 for the past 10 or so. Seems to work really well, so it's what I run.

    One fuel I'll never run again is odonnels....

    I've used a 7200mah 3S SMC lipo in my stampede 4x4 vxl (similar size/weight/components). It does make it land quite a bit harder than when I run my much lighter 5200mah 3S pack.

    The 7200mah are...

    Not sure what you mean. I don't use a traxxas radio or a receiver with gyro or anything. Just a basic spektrum dx5c and no frills 2 channel receivers.

    I did have to get used to the servo I put in...

    I've run into the same issue multiple times. Sometimes the connector fits, sometimes it doesn't. Not sure why they differ in thickness on some. Seems like the charge adapters that are "heavy duty"...

    I keep buying the older taller 3.8 trenchers for mine.

    Is yours the 2.0 revo or 1.0? If it's 1.0, do you intend on running 4S in it or 6S?

    On 4S, my 1.0 held up ok'ish with them. Required rear...

    You can use a piece of small brass tubing sharpened up in a dremel to cut a nice clean hole in the tires. I use a drill bit usually though at high speed in my dremel with light pressure. Then it...

    If he's like me, then it wasn't noticed as "bad" until it was too late. I thought mine doing it was a fluke until I ran across this and a few other mentions of it. Surprised it doesn't happen more...
