    It kind of rested on the top of the brace. I made the pipe hanger to fit around the bolt for the brace for the pipe to lock onto. I run the THS pipe though. Just a piece of stiff wire I had laying...

    Looks a lot like the arrma 4074 2050kv. They may be measuring at the fins to get the 42mm.

    Yep, that is a bit of a pain.

    Be careful when installing the upper shock mount screws/bolts. Make sure you use the ones specific to the length needed. I installed the traxxas rear brace and used...

    I don't know. I tried finding CNC'd cradle pieces for my big block mount, but didn't find much other than integy and gpm, so not sure if there is anything much better than stock out there.

    14/40 would be lower gearing than 14/38. If it was doing ok with the big joes on 14/38, then you should be fine with 14/38 with the backflips. I have to guess they are lighter than the big joes as...

    I really like those on my outcast. I was running 3.8" trenchers before, never ran the stock outcast tires (assuming that's what those are). They are very light and get a ton of grip in the grass. Not...

    At one point, I knew. Well, I pressed them down on a scale to see what 1" of compression showed. Sadly, didn't write it down and I don't have any unmounted at the moment to try.

    The blx2050kv is a 4074, just a bit lower KV than the v1 or v2 revo motor. Probably a hobbywing derivative, I'm not sure. I know their esc's are hobbywing based. At least the pre-firma ones. The...

    I read the leapard runs hot, don't know anything about the other two.

    The BLX2050kv bolted right up without issue.

    I never had the stock traxxas vxl 2200kv motor, I had the v1 ERBE which had...

    I run those on mine as well. I was running vdk #2 with 60wt, but I keep busting the pistons, so on the rear I just changed to standard #2 pistons and 50wt. Will see how that does. Just got back from...

    Got a link to the specific one your running? What kv? The TP site is a bit of a pain to navigate unless you know exactly what your looking for.

    Mine was busted, so I didn't have to care if it survived removal. I just stuck a screwdriver under it and twisted to pop it loose.

    FWIW, the battery bay support clips I made didn't seem to help....

    Yeah, check the cradle pieces for cracks. They tend to shatter vs bend. I keep a spare set of those on hand. You may have tweaked the engine bay area of the chassis as well.

    Yeah, you have to get a bit more creative with the vxl-3s fan though. It's like a 30x30x7 fan. A 30x30x10 won't lock into the holder very well, if at all. Been a while since I had mine apart.

    Yeah, 18T pinion is way too big, even if your running 2S. The highest I went with the 3800kv 3660 (castle) was 14/54 I believe. That kept it comfortable. I may have only ran 13T in the grass... can't...

    Overheats and shuts down. Many esc's have thermal protection built in. It's best to gear so you never reach that, but if you do, they go into a limp mode (low power) or shut down and won't let you...

    I've found that the 2.0 arms hold up far better than the v1/nitro revo stock arms. I tried a set of RPM arms on my 2.0 (the 2.0 specific from RPM) and had clearance issues. I asked RPM about it and...

    I don't think it's that yours is faulty, I just think it's that your asking more of it than it can produce, so what your seeing is it struggling.

    What you described is what I've seen when gearing...

    Yeah, would be problematic on the stock mount. I use blue gel loctite usually. Orange liquid if it's something the tends to come loose even with the blue.

    Once it's rolling, the motor pulls less amps to keep going, but from a standstill, if you punch it, it pulls a lot of amps. Likely more than the esc wants to deliver.

    With the weight of the...

    Stack up 2 or 3 normal washers. That's what I do. I also use locktite, but I have the kingheadz mount which is aluminum. Guessing the stock one has a M3 nut in it, but I'd still use locktite.

    4000kv is pretty high for a stampede 4x4, especially with a 3650 sized motor. The stock motor is a 3500kv 3660 sized, which likely has considerably more torque. Also, a 60A esc isn't really enough...

    I would just use a good 2.5mm cap head screw with a thick washer (3mm thread). A button head won't let you get much leverage to tighten it without stripping. I usually replace that screw with a new...
