    Some really good points here.

    Many bashers favour thicker oil to create more "pack" behind the shock pistons on compression that helps reduce the suspension bottoming out on big jumps. Personally...

    You may not know but the brushless Rustler VXL runs 25/83 stock (out of the box) and that's with a higher 3500KV motor. Therefore, unless you're running on highly resistant off-road terrain, you...

    Unless you're running on-road, you might want to drop the gearing as the VXL is geared much higher.

    I truly hope so but Traxxas's approach to developing platforms is very slow and evolutionary so I wouldn't expect any radical changes. I think the best we might be able to hope for is hopped-up...

    Don't forget that if you're only running 2S lipo you also have the option of running a high voltage capable servo straight off the battery which can give you more servo speed and torque than you'll...

    Mmm'n, somewhat unlikely I suspect since Big Bore shocks were first released several years before Youtube was even launched. Either way, there's nothing available to support your assertion that they...

    They do perform better than the Ultras due to having a much smoother action. Other benefits are (1) the oil doesn't...

    I recall years ago that somebody once datalogged the original SCT 3800 motor’s peak amp draw on 2S at about 150A. I feed mine on a diet of 5600mAh 50C (100C burst) i.e. 280A continuous rating.

    Since you have a Castle ESC, IMO the best solution is to hook up your ESC to a PC and limit the motor's torque via the setting.

    It limits torque by limiting the amp draw so unless you go for a...

    If you haven't done so already, swap out the stock progressive springs for some stiffer linear springs to limit the body roll. It make a world of difference to on-road handling.

    23/50 gearing would give a final drive ratio of 5.9:1 which is seriously high.
