    I'm glad I upgraded mine a long time ago now that I have a 4074 motor bolted to it. I run the traxxas upgraded plate with the HCG king heads bearing mount as well in my slampede. The bearings last so...

    I can't recall if they intended you to use the stock hinge pin on the bottom or not, already forgot. Either way, I use 3x50mm black oxide bolts, a 1mm (might be 1.5mm) shim/washer and a locknut to...

    It may have come with hinge pins... I can't recall, I used 3x50mm bolts with locknuts and cut them down so they are fully captured and I hate using c-clips if I don't have to. The kingpins use the...

    It could just be that the bearing seats aren't perfectly correct for the bearing crush space, so when you tighten the wheel, it puts side load on the bearings. That will fry a bearing within minutes....

    I tried traxxas and aftermarket alloy ones (hot racing, atomik) on my stampede and they get slop in them pretty quick (read a summers worth of bashing) and I found some that use bearings for the king...

    Running in grass also drives up the temps.

    The tires on the ERBEv2 are heavy. Kind of surprised they left them as heavy as they are as the additional rotational mass also drives up temps.

    Stock servos aren't that great. I'd upgrade to something stronger/metal geared.

    I wouldn't use them together like that. It will be harder on the weaker of the two and will drain it faster. Which will likely discharge the weaker one more than the other and you could end up with...

    Personally, I don't run older/newer batteries together, ever. Even with the same capacity/c-rating/size, as you use packs, they age. When they age, the internal resistance goes up. When IR goes up,...

    You would need some serious hub extenders and even then, the size/weight of the wheel/tire is going to be really hard on the tiny plastic slider axles on a slash.

    30w oil in a diff would be almost like nothing at all I'd imagine. I run 50K in my stampede 4x4 front/rear diffs and 500k in the center. It does pretty well, but would likely want thinner for a...
