    I always read these threads with some bemusement. I've only ever run my 8S X-Maxx on 6S and it has been an incredibly reliable and enjoyable truck.

    Well that's a bit of a misdirect - the OP is asking about running 2S or 3S, presumably on a stock system. A 2400kv motor is definitely not stock.

    I ran my brand new Rustler (twice) yesterday on 2S...

    The weather was good enough, so 2 runs.

    I have now added a heatsink/fan combo - even on 2S with an ambient temp of 16C the motor was hot. Fun car, and handles very nicely with the sway bars,...

    So having sold my Sl4sh (still haven't sold my St4mpede) yesterday I picked up a brand new Rustler 4x4 VXL for my 10yo.

    It has, before it's even been run, been upgraded with the Traxxas sway bar...

    At some point I'd like to see someone running it on 3S - as this is what I'd be running it on.

    This one's really easy - Traxxas used to have the rights to trucks in the Monster Jam series, then they lost those rights. I suspect the commercial cost of the licensing didn't make sense, or...

    I'll be buying this and running it on 3S, the same as I run my X-Maxx on 6S.

    In the process I'll take the Stampede 4x2 (brushed), Stampede 4x4 VXL and Slash 4x4 VXL, creating a reasonably tough,...

    I don't necessarily agree with that - I have a LCG Slash 4x4 that sits about 8-10mm off the ground, and my Stampede 4x4 (converted before this announcement to a Rustler 4x4) has much better ground...

    I think the Rustler chassis should be fine, because it's shorter it won't flex as much (that said, I've never snapped my LCG Sl4sh chassis), but you could always just raise the suspension using...

    I had this problem today - had to replace the rear centre shaft with one from a V1 E-Revo. FWIW, it was the truck's FIRST RUN.

    My intention is to wait until they solve the issues with the electronics. If I could buy a roller version for US$350 I'd cop that, and buy electronics that I'm comfortable with, as that's my main...

    I think it's in Traxxas' best interests to make sure that servos are lasting more than 1-2 packs, and the ESC isn't causing LiPos to explode because the LVD hasn't kicked in. These are definitely...

    So the Traxxas website is now saying "due late May" for the E-Revo VXL.

    I'm happy to be corrected, but I think the delay is due to:

    It also looks like they're no longer TiNi coated shafts. I wonder if the extra...

    By the look of it they're also having some pretty consistent problems with the rear shocks and the plastic chassis brace. Why would they strengthen diffs and driveshafts, and make the shocks weaker?...

    I FINALLY got onto someone at AMain. Traxxas have advised them that deliveries now won't be until "late April," but haven't given them any reason why.
