    That is an impressive looking truck! How are your operating temperatures on the Velineon system?

    Horrible. Imo that motor sucks even all stock. Mamba monster coming soon need shafts as well lol. It's pretty much all stock at this point. Jus got the truck last month so still in the process.

    Your chassis is really high up there. Have you had problems with rolling?

    But, It looks really good!

    With a heatsink and fan setup you can dramatically lower motor temperatures. It makes it cool off a whole lot faster also. With your build, I don't think a Velineon motor system would ever be happy. The wheels are just too big for it.

    No it's really wide. Doesn't roll as much as it does with the 2.8 stampede rims

    So you put BIG wheels on it and call it a monster 4x4 slash. lol I don't think it works that way.

    I was pretty much impressed with the velineon system for as long as I had them in my rigs. Not nice to cut them down either. Especially on the Traxxas forum.
