    What should I do next?

    The car that I am talking about is a slash 2wd that can run 6s.
    It has a arrma blx 185 in it and a castle 1515.
    Besides metal parts it is stock, even the bellcrank.
    What else should I do with/to it?

    I was gonna say wait to see what breaks, but after seeing your gearing, I’d say buy a fire extinguisher. Whoo! That’s tall.

    Hahahaha it actually only gets hot on on 6s, 4s it's perfectly fine, and I rarely run 6s in this car.

    I would think better drive shafts but if the plastic ones are holding up then just keep running.

    I have some heavy duty metal ones, but I was waiting for my plastic ones to die. And they don't seem to be dieing any time soon. They are holding better than I expected hahaha
    100mph+ and still using plastic drive shafts.

    I am pretty sure you're joking about this, but I am actually going to do that, but right now the main thing is going to be trying to put a slash 4x4 bellcrank in my car, the current stock 2wd bellcrank has to much wiggle room in it and I would like the extra thiccness.
    I am also thinking of gearing down to a 16t pinion for normal driving, and then moving back to the 34t pinion for speed runs. I can't switch the spur as I only have 38t ones.

    The 4x4 steering gear is definitely worth it. It’ll save your hide in a hard crash.

    First yours set up is cool but I have the rustler 2wd with a 8s esc and a traxxas motor in it I think I hit 126.3mph. But yours is surprising really cool

    Thank you! Also, if I were to do an actually speed run. There is a high chance I would break 150mph on 6s

    If youd ever want to do speed runs and get to the 100mph club, lower center of gravity, tires, gps, for starters

    I already have a low center of gravity, good tires, and I do have the traxxas GPS thing.

    Definitely bell crank, at speeds them 2wd bell cranks suck, my slash 2wd isn't anything like that and I hate the slop the bell crank has, always seem to be playing with the trim. And the Aluminum 2wd bell crank is no better, the little link in the center wears out quick.

    Looking at your pictures,
    I respectfully disagree, and if you want to
    Post times or speeds the traxxas app is not something you can trust.

    Hm ok, I do know that the traxxas app is not the best, but it is what I have. (Why do I have that and not something actually good, I'm not the one who bought it) and for the center of gravity how should I adjust it?

    Sadly the 4x4 bellcrsnk did not fit, but I was able to remove all slop caused from bellcrank, the only slop I have is from the servo

    For weight, and speed, you may want to try a weighted front bumper, or closed wheel speed body. Get some foams, 4wd you can get away with GRPs. Foams always work better on my Rustler. Is your chassis LCG?

    Yes this is the lcg, hcg is a curse. Also I am still using the stock drive shafts, but I have better ones. I am just waiting for these to break.

    Any idea on how to create a kill switch for a steering servo? I want it to just keep strait and not accept anything from the remote.

    what you should do is rebind a dial on the remote to the steering rate, so when doing speed runs you can lower the responsiveness of the servo for smaller adjustments

    Ah ok that should also do what I want, is it easy to do this? I already have a fully bluetooth system setup.
