    I put one of the ebay spy cameras in my Slash 4x4, and chased my buddy around a track in his 2WD Slash. It's pretty dang hard to be a camera truck. I wrecked twice as much, trying to keep him in...

    As far as that being the reason you can only turn tight if you are barely moving? No, I don't think it's the servo. From those pictures, I think you are on a loose/dusty track, and your front end...

    What's your setup on the front and rear diffs? I've found that if the track is real dusty/sandy, heavy fluid in the rear diff just makes the front end push and it won't turn. I assume it's because...

    The transistors are there to help squash radio interference; they have no other effect on performance. It's not serious, it can easily be resoldered, and no, it won't hurt anything to keep running...
