    Cool!:thumbup:

    This is the 2wd version build guide but should be useful for 4wd even with different body mounts and tires

    A few years ago people started making monster slashes using 2.8 trencher MT tires and that required both...

    Wider tires will rub the body on the slash. You will need extended body mounts to raise the body and/or trim the body quite a bit.

    For that reason I usually prefer the Rustl4r since it’s only two...

    Some Americans still care. You are free to do as you see fit.

    For me, if the quality is similar, price is the same, I prefer the item with more American input. We can’t always have 100% American...

    I would hope when it gets in circulation it comes down in price a bit. Between this and similarly priced Trencher LP I honestly would rather get the proline since some of the proline components are...

    The rear has more droop. If I had to guess, as it wears out the turnbuckle plastic end slips out easier at full extension and compression.

    It fits stampede 4x4, even with the shock guards. It flexes a little more but not nearly as much as RPM.

    That’s a sensible way of looking at it. Buying a MAXX then spend half the cars price to get it to perform like a E Revo seems wasteful. Treat the MAXX for what it is, a stampede 4x4 and monster slash...

    Oof, it’s a long list. They share most parts within the chassis but arms, turnbuckles, wheels, hexes, even front caster block differ. Looking at the exploded views is the best way to go imoh as well.

    I would put the esc plate back on even though you moved the esc to the side. The four screws hold it down is a part of what keeps the chassis from over flexing. That would also keep the battery held...
