    Yes, you can swap out the ESC and motor without any hassle. You need to be aware that the diff gearing is different though in the Stampede XL-5 vs VXL. With VXL diffs, run as small of a pinion as you...

    Boy,

    There is nothing you can do with the Slash that cannot be done with the Pede... Lots of interchangable parts and upgrades. The only benefit I can see is the longer wheel base but you can...

    I started with a xl-5 as well, and eventually changed diff gears to VXL units. To give you an idea, the stock VXL diff gears with an 11/54 pinion/spur will theoretically top out around 45 with 3s...

    The only real difference is in the electronics. All of you suspension, axles etc.. will be the same. Unfortunately slop in the wheels is pretty common on these even without major abuse, nature of the...

    I would put the smallest pinion you can in there. The stock gearing in ths diffs on the XL-5 is much steeper than that of the VXL. Stock gearing of 9/54 on the XL-5 gives a total final drive of...

    The big bore shocks do work, and fit, but the springs as you are already finding out are not right. You can swap your stock springs onto the big bore shocks, or shim the big bore springs. I tried...

    Congrats on the purchase and coming over to the dark side lol. You can run all kinds of brushed motors, but if you are going to upgrade just go to brushless. Soooo much better IMO.

    I removed the stock body "lift" pins nad just installed the screws directly into the horns. This lowered the body and gave me the look I was after along with the thumb screw mounts.

    You can mix and match to suit your needs as long as you remain the same side to side. Just remember that the x-dutys are pretty heavy, and will find any other weak links in the drive train :)

    Twisting and snapping are a normal occurance, much more so on 3s with any kind of traction. Like you, I replaced with plastic a few times, but eventually went with Tekno, and will never look back.
