    Yeah the stock plate is aluminum, and it's okay. If you use a larger motor though, it will bend the stock plate after a big jump. The upgraded plate is thicker.

    I'm using 32p gears, 18/54, but I use Stampede-sized tires and run mostly off-road. No need for a metal spur even with the most powerful 8th scale systems, the plastic spur will still work fine.

    Did you upgrade the motor plate also? For me, it seemed like I got more benefit overall from upgrading the motor plate compared to the motor mount.

    I upgraded from this:...

    Your best bet is to go with an 8th scale system, as even a good 10th scale system in most cases is not going to completely solve your overheating issues. The Velineon system is already a decent 10th...

    I like hobby shops, but I always get the best results when researching exactly what to buy online, and then going into the hobby shop and requesting specific parts, rather than asking the guy behind...

    Interesting option. It may come down to something like that in the end if I can't come up with anything else.

    The thing that I don't like about those is that I would have to basically start...

    This is what i'm dealing with on the rear wheels when using the cheap hub extensions that I bought:

  8. Anyone know of a GOOD set of hub extensions?

    My main truck is a Slash 4x4 monster Truck conversion. My goal has always been to create something close to an 1/8th scale monster truck while sticking with the 1/10th scale Slash/Stampede 4x4...

    You have a valid point. But to be fair, the Stampede isn't a 1/10th scale light pickup truck, it's a 1/10th scale Monster Truck. A full-scale Monster Truck would have no problem driving through 39"...

    If you rely on the slipper clutch to limit the torque going through your drivetrain, then getting rid of that protection would mean components further down the line might have to deal with more...

    The pads will simply pop off from the silver triangular piece that they are attached to. They aren't glued on or anything like that. You might try using a sharp flat-head screwdriver or even a...

    Assuming that the issue is worn pads. If you have not done so already, you can reverse the pads. They are double-sided, and you can simply flip each pad over. The metal disc that the pads make...

    How tight? Is it so tight that you literally can't tighten it any further?

    Another possibility is that you tightened it too tight. I like to tighten mine down pretty much as far as I can, but...

    The Stampede 4x4 is fantastic for running on grass. The stock shafts are a known weak spot, and it mainly has to do with torque. When running on grass, it takes more torque to move your truck, and...

    Could you be a bit more specific? If it's adjusted "properly", then it's supposed to slip sometimes. That's why it's called a "slipper-clutch".

    Are you saying that it's slipping all the time,...

    To be fair, in your other thread you said that you bought a used Stampede 4x4, so just because you used it for a week doesn't mean that it didn't see significant usage before you bought it. It's not...

    You could gear down all the way to 9/54 or so if you wanted, but that won't necessarily stop it from overheating anyway, especially if you are using 3s. 11/54 is equivalent to stock Stampede...
