    Motor cooling and surrounding areas

    Sorry to jump in late here, and not wanting to argue semantics, but has anybody ever run their rig with thermal paste on the heat sinks? I bought a tube and tried a trial run with a 2wd rustler and...

    I have that combo with the 3200kV motor in a monster rustler. The drivetrain is heavy and the tires are much larger than stock. Overall, itís been great, never really hot.

    The anti-spark is a nice added feature for the XT90, but I donít think sparking is an issue with 2-3s.

    AMASS AS150 should be fine for up to 8s

    Connectors

    They are usually yellowish, but Iíve seen black/grey ones too. Just make sure theyíre genuine AMASS.

    When soldering, always connect male and female together, to help with heat dissipation.

    Also, I donít think the stock diff handles 6s very well. This is near bombproof:

    Ballpark figure for a 100 mph Rustler is around $2000. Look up Gripdogís thread on his high speed Rustler. Might give you some ideas.

    Sorry man, Iíve bought some random 12mm shocks on eBay, for an old Hornet. They looked similar to these, but were red. Overall theyíre decent, but replacing parts is a bit of a crapshoot.

    I found some nice foam ones that have an adhesive backing. If you stick them on the inside of the shell, it helps a bit.
