    Why not use a 2s lipo instead and leave it in regular mode. This will slow it down compared to a 3s but still have enough power to be fun. 2s lipos are not very expensive these days and will allow...

    Those do appear to be just a capacitor or like you said, a ďglitch busterĒ. They are used for keeping the esc from having brown out issues. Good for when you are using a power hungry servo like...

    Donít see where he spoke about running in the mud. The older posts show running in mud, but not the newest one by OP. Not sure what his issue with the TX/RX and ESC/motor is. He has recalibrated...

    The Big Bores should work just fine for general bashing. While not as large as the GTRís and donít have the second spring like the proline shocks do, the big bores will work just fine. You may have...

    The wheels/tires need to be balanced just like on a 1:1 vehicle. You will need a way to do this, either by using a driveshaft or buying a wheel balancer for RC vehicles. Youíll also need either...

    If they asked about brushed or brushless, they were speaking of the smaller 1/16th summit and not the 1/10th as it only comes with a brushed motor setup. You might be better off ordering one from...

    You can try running a 3s lipo with your current setup. The side owner 3 says it can handle up to 3s lipo, but in my own experience it will get hot fast and possibly have a short life span. If you...

    I donít think so as the voltages are so different from a normal lipo pack. A 2s lipo is 7.4v nominal and a life pack of the same 2s is only 6.6v nominal. I donít think the esc will recognize it as...

    And yes be very careful using a 3s with the sidewinder 3 as said above. You may want to think about getting a better ESC to run 3s more consistently. As said, watch the temps very closely and make...

    Youíll want a 3s lipo to get to speeds above about 35-45mph. You can gear up and get to close to 50mph on 2s, but youíll not want to run it much like this. A 3s lipo and youíll have no problem...

    Not sure if you are using a 2 or 3s battery. I assume itís a 3s. The larger 5000 mah 50c battery will not make much if any difference unless the other battery you have is old and the C rating isnít...

    Get some good hex drivers would be the first thing I would say. Do this before you try to disassemble the rest end to check the diff. I recommend getting either MIP hex drivers or RDS hex drivers. ...
