    I’m 90% sure that error occurs when the primary driver FETs in the output stage are toast. The reason I suspect is that it happened to me when my motor was also shorting out internally. Did your...

    If you install Spektrum SMART ESC along with Spektrum receiver you would have Telemetry on your DX5C, but not with Traxxas ESC. I did this for a while with Firma 150 ESC and SR6100AT. The DX5C and...

    I just had exactly this same failure. It’s been over a year of tough use for it to fail for me. So I just replaced it with a meh.

    I got these weights from YouTube review below. Surprised to see belted badlands weigh less than normal badlands, and not much more than stock EXTs.

    Stock EXTs: 390g
    Belted Badlands: 418g
    Normal...

    My EXT’s tore the first time after I learned to drive on two wheels. The simple diffing out will kill the stock tires. A nice design requirement for the Traxxas team would be “able to survive...

    Proline Belted Badlands are Awesome

    Hi Internet Friends,
    Let me just say I love the Proline Belted Badlands Tires! I had previously been running Proline Belted Trenchers, and it's clear the Belted Badlands are way better. First...

    The VXL-6s has a better than average BEC with 10A continuous current capability. 2x fans and 2x servos are no problem.

    Yes, it will. I'm using that motor in my EREVO 2 right now. The only possible thing to mention is that the shaft is just ever so slightly shorter than the stock Velineon, and you have to run pinion...

    If it's the stock Velineon, then it's expected that they will seize often and for no good reason. Even with good fans. I really do hate them and had 4 do that to me. Do yourself a favor and...

    Oooh, set screw on the ball caps would be perfect. Seems set screws on the pillow ball threads themselves would also be a possible solution. But really they just need more thread. Once area...

    I've posted this several times before, but I hate the stock Velineon motors with a passion. Even with good fan cooling I smoked 4 of them. Please upgrade to Castle 1515 or Hobbywing 4274. They...

    I did the couple drops of medium CA in each pillow ball hole prior to screwing 100% in on all four. Also couple drops of blue loctite on the cap threads. With this I've had zero issues in a couple...

    I run with no wing, no rear bumper, no mounts. Cut out rear
    and corners of the body so they don't contact ground and rip. It won't look as good but is way more durable. After replacing the wing...

    I just want to throw my 2 cents in that the stock Traxxas 2075 servo's are really terrible. They failed on me within a couple weeks. I replaced them, and they soon failed again. This is with me...

    Yea, I think even on stock gearing, which is low gearing, the motor is in easy danger of overheating on 6s. Running two sets of packs back-to-back is guaranteed to get your temps into the 220's F. ...

    Hi dberry,
    Sorry to hear of the trouble. Do you have motor fan(s)? I found with a stock setup, the Velineon motor could handle one set of 6s lipos and motor temperature would barely be ok...

    Yup, I agree. I have twin tornado fans from Yeah Racing. With this setup under hard use my IR gun temp would stay well below 180 F. Even with these fans, and good temps, I still ruined 3 Velineon...

    I've had many breakdowns and finally have gotten a point where I am kinda almost reliable. It is frustrating. If Traxxas had any kind of product assurance testing, and prior to launch, sent 10...

    I feel your VXL-6S flashing red LED pain

    When my second VXL-6S gave me the all red LEDs flashing treatment (again), I was ticked. I vowed never Traxxas ESC again, and ordered the Spektrum Firma 150 ESC. (really Hobbywing Max8 with...

    Not even that recent: 9/1/2019, but just installed a month ago. Gives me hope that the improvement is saturating the stock by now.

    Latest 8652 steel drive cups WAY better

    I went through several sets of these steel drive cups on the EREVO 2 getting disappointed how easily they wear out. However the last set of Traxxas 8652 that I installed from Amazon are way better! ...
