    My latest. Got a new set of tires on it, arrma backflip MT's that are externally wrapped. I increased my pinion and running 21/54 now since the tires are lighter than the trencher 3.8's. Temps got to...

    550lb cored kevlar cord works better though. Holds up longer over rocky terrain. The smaller string gets cut up pretty quick if you run in rocks at all.

    I used the baking method with the most success.

    Boiling was irritating and you had hot water squirting everywhere if you tried testing to see if the glue released.

    Don't the tekno's require you to use their axle carriers which tend to be a bit fragile? A kid I met recently has the tekno's and doesn't care for the carriers as he tends to break them. Actually, he...

    You said it creeps. Have you taken off the bell and inspected the shoes/springs/bearings? A weak or broken spring will cause it to drag too low in the RPM's and will kill it. Old tired/worn/dry...

    I never had the stock system. I had the v1 revo and I got a v2 roller then moved the mxl-6s/castle 2200kv over to it. It was 3 years old at the time and I had run it on 4S all that time. The esc died...

    As far as I'm aware, they are all 3.8", but there are MT and LP versions. I just put a set of the MT backflips on my revo 2.0. I really like those tires. I did wrap them though with 550lb kevlar...

    Lipo's hold their charge for quite a while. That said, it's not good for them to let them sit for many days at full charge. I put mine at storage voltage after each bash session. In the off months, I...

    If your getting a starter shaft, you should also get a new one way bearing as running a new shaft on old bearing will likely just cause it to wear the shaft prematurely. And if your replacing the...

    From what I read, the castle sct sv3/3800kv combo wasn't great for 3S use. You'd likely be better off getting a 3665-3670 ~3000kv motor and either sticking with the vxl-3s esc or throwing a max10 sct...
