  1. Killing a brushed motor in a day is not typical....

    Killing a brushed motor in a day is not typical.

    No, a 540 brushed motor can make more torque than a 540 brushless motor depending on their specs, build quality, etc. With all other things...

    How quickly is "quite quickly"? I bought my nephew a Slash for his 6th birthday. Two years later he's still beating on it and the brushed motor is doing just fine. My Slash is even older and it's...

    Yes, wrenching is part of this hobby, but if you don't hit things and don't mistreat or neglect your RC the maintenance and repair is a very small part of the hobby.

    Stock Traxxas shocks are great. If you have issues with them you can switch to other Traxxas shocks or Proline, but if not I say leave them.

    You can obviously tune them with new springs and oil...

    A brushed motor is going to last more than 10 hours unless it's defective or unless you subject it to extreme situations.

    Dirt and more powerful batteries will shorten the life of a battery, but...

    You are welcome! I'm glad I could help.

    I hope you like the tires that I recommended.

    Another, new option to checkout are the JConcepts Landmines. They are newly released so I have no...

    I don't like slipper clutches in crawlers. I don't use slipper eliminators, but I tighten my slipper clutches down all the way so they can't slip. Doing this is essentially the same as using a...

    I live in Eastern Pennsylvania in the US. Our terrain sounds very similar to yours. My top three tires are Proline Hyrax, Proline TSL XL Super Swampers, and Pitbull Rock Beasts.

    I rarely vent tires because I run in mud and water. Mud and water gets inside the tires and adds a ton of weight as well as destroying foams (unless you have switched to closed cell).

    Yes, I am. There are pros and cons to both trucks, but I am pretty much settled on the brushed Stampede 4x4. The reasoning for that is the parts support, especially in terms of the aftermarket, is...

    Those pathetic souls really are still mad about that! It blows me away that the Army blames Traxxas and not Arrma for the copying incident.

    The Revo has amazing suspension and it would be great to...

    That definitely looks much better! Thank you for sharing that photo.

    Now let's hope Traxxas has a Black Friday or Cyber Monday sale so I don't have to go with the $80 cheaper competition...

    Fast Eddy has started offering all stainless steel bearings for crawlers. Hopefully they do the same for bashers.

    All LiPos may originate from the same place, but they are not the same quality. No-name places will sell the lowest quality batteries that have the highest internal resistance, and therefore,...

    Proline shocks are the best! But Traxxas shocks are great as well and with aluminum caps, as stated above, they'll last you a long time. Traxxas aluminum shocks are also great shocks.

    eBay isn't a scam, but they gouge you to list it, to sell it, and then PayPal (also owned by eBay) takes a chunk.

    I don't necessarily agree that $170 is too much for a crawler servo. With $170 comes a ton of torque, which is a great thing in a crawler with big, sticky tires, you get speed which is never a bad...

    I'm hoping I can get a Stampede 4x4 on sale on BF so its price comes closer to the competition.

    Also, I'm hoping eBay gives us something better than eBay Bucks. They used to give 15% and 20%...

    Rumps...baby got back! :p

    I prefer 2WD. It's more fun sliding in the dirt IMO.

    For grass you may even want to consider a monster truck since the higher ground clearance and bigger tires have...

    With servos I don't think you know what you're missing until you try one.

    They are faster, stronger and more durable. Some people don't like the lightning fast reaction.

    You confused me for a second. This is in the TRX-4 section, but you're talking about Rustler.

    RPM arms all around should be fine. Some people have complained that RPM arms can flex enough in...

    The RPM bumper looks good. I'm sure it will protect as well as you guys say because it's RPM.

    Good post. Thanks.

    One of the things I hate about the Stampede is that the body seems disconnected from the chassis. It is so freaking high, the wheel wells are so huge, and it floats above the...
