    They got the 3019R in stock, so I just ordered one of those. My brand new Slash 4x4 Ultimate has been getting a real workout since I got it (same day the Summit broke, funnily enough), so it needs a...

    I'll keep it in mind if I can't find the LVD ESC :)

    Hmm, that kinda makes sense, I guess. I wouldn't really want to be without LVD though. Rather pay 40% more and not risk frying 2 expensive LiPo batts. Alternative is to purchase the Traxxas link...
  4. Summit Esc fried - product code for new one?

    I've googled extensively, but haven't found any answers. I see there are two different EVX-2 ESC, but I don't know if I can use the TRX 3019? According to the parts list, the original part has the...

    Well, I ordered 20wt oil, those fugly green shock caps and finally some Traxxas 3741A Aluminum Turnbuckles which was the very last part I needed to make it a complete VXL conversion (well, except...

    Yeah and I would like to soften them up considerably in the front. Do I have to get a lower visc oil and softer springs, or would the oil alone be enough?

    I'll watch the viddie.

    I think it happened when my brother landed his truck on mine while it was flipped over from a jump. I've said to myself that whenever something breaks, I will replace it with something stronger....
  8. Swapping out front shock oil on a Stampede XL-5

    One of the front plastic shock caps popped off today resulting in loss of half the oil in the shock, so I might as well make the most of it and try to get some input on which viscosity to use as I...

    The whole truck. I don't spray water inside the rims, on the ESC fan or any other sensitive place. I know how to clean bearings but I'd rather just swap them out when they go - provided that doesn't...

    The last one looked dirty when I took it out, and if I rotated it by hand it sounded like there was sand in it. How should I clean it anyway? I've heard so many different methods. I've just put it in...

    So I should tighten the wheels more, I guess. My brother thinks this might be it as well. Just don't want to destroy anything more expensive than the bearings. Is it possible to put some spacers in...

    I'll just get some original ones, they're not too expensive. Don't believe they got wet either of the two times they have gone out.

    The truck is 1 month old, shouldn't be too much wear on it this soon. Guess I'll stay out of sand if I can.

    Rubber sealed. I haven't driven much on sand, but surely I should be able to with the rubber sealed bearings? Not really a fan of "walking on egg shells" when driving. I've bashed it pretty hard and...

    Yep, always have. I'll order some Traxxas bearings in the near future and stay away from that junk I bought on eBay. Thanks guys.

    Well, they've been at the point where the wheel won't spin freely anymore. It'll act as if it still had those brass rings instead of bearings. When I tried to rotate the last one that went it sounded...

    Front ball bearings keep getting ruined.

    I have an XL-5 upgraded with ball bearings amongst other things, and so far 2 of them have needed to be replaced. First time on the right side, now on the left. Both times it's been the outer one...

    Ok, so I ordered a 16t pinion. But it will be much lower geared than stock according to an RC calculator.

    Theoretical max speed with stock gearing / my tires etc is around 52 km/h. I have around...

    I didn't really notice much difference in speed. The theoretical max speed before was around 50 km/h; I can't see how 2-3 extra would add that much more heat?

    And what about the tires - do larger...

    Question about gearing / tire change

    Ok, so.. Even more upgrades today. I can't seem to stop, lol.

    Anyway. The stock gearing on my XL-5 is 19/90. I got tired of cleaning sand and rocks out of the spur gear so I bought an 86 tooth...

  22. Upgrading to 2,4 ghz radio on a Stampede XL-5

    That long telescopic antenna which is capable of poking someone's eye out is getting old, and I've gotten interference several times where the truck would just go crazy with no input. So I'm going to...

    So the Traxxas wheelie bar is compatible with the RPM mount? If so I'll get that combo instead.

    I'll have to see how it feels with the original ones, it just sucks having to go flip the car over when you're too hard on the throttle. Honestly I got the Velineon just because I've read so much...
