    Yeah, they only have about 2.5 coils between the perch and the black shaft dust boot and fourdubs is sitting about 3.5 coils or more. Defiantly lower, maybe they cut a coil out of the springs for road use in the demo to limit flipping over.

    I don't think so. That video is just eye candy. I've never thought much about manufacturer produced videos. They're good to see things running, but I've always known that it's showing things in the absolute best light possible. Trucks never break in Traxxas vids. lol. They're always dialed in perfect and driven by a professional. Need consumer reviews before you really know anything.

    Ouch for you gio. Another Traxxas ESC that catches fire I'm guessing. Regardless of cause hope you caught in time before major damage.

    And put a Max 6 in it.

    Yeh, what gives? Shipping from China is always free and I don't mind waiting a month... or usually 2 weeks max.

    I got mine in the mail today, mounted em up to the maxx.

    heres a few pics of it, I haven't run em yet. perhaps tomorrow morning.

    they are heavier by a little bit, and a little bit more mass.

    awesome. I'm looking forward to your thoughts on these. do you think the weight difference is enough to require gearing down a tooth?

    im not sure, I left the truck stock gearing, just so I could test em on stock gearing.

    So far I have never overheated my maxx, hit the low voltage a few times, but never overheat. so I will go work it out and see if, my normal useage can make the truck overheat or not.

    installing them...

    Wheels and tires should arrive today. I can not wait to stop this ballooning. I just hope these solve the issue I'm having with rollover while trying to high speed corner. I have my shocks adjusted but the ballooning is forcing me to loose it on even wide turns. Yeah, I know I could just slow down a bit more before entering a turn but where is the fun in that when I can drift through the turn and use the torque to straighten out when pulling out of a turn.

    sorry no speed runs / wheelie test in the grass. the grass in California is expensive, and it wasent mine (park) so I didn't wanna tear it up too bad.

    the tires sound amazing on cement / basketball / tennis ball courts. skip to 9:40 to hear what I'm talking about. its awesome.

    enjoy

    Yeah, IMEX is missing out. This was about the worst time for them to be "out of stock" of everything.
