    Rustler 4x4 vxl is loud, trying to figure out why

    So i got the new rustler 4x4 vxl, to go along side my rustler vxl. And i love it. But one thing ive noticed is that it is LOUD..... i swapped the motor and esc put in a castle 3800 and sidewinder 4, running the 54 spur and 17t pinion gearing. I wasnt expecting it to be so loud... why is it so loud compared to the regular rustler? Is it the driveshaft?

    Where is the noise coming from? Front? Back? Middle? Transmission? One of the hubs?


    Did it happen before you installed the Castle?

    If you remove the pinion does sound go away?

    Could be the 32p gears. They are louder then the 48p.

    Normal. That is just the way the center drive shaft sounds on the 4x4.
