    I found that I wasn't really able to wheelie on command until I got into 4s. I was able to wheelie on 3s if the sun and moon lined up just right but it was not easy. Gearing up makes wheelies easier....

    No argument from me Maxx. I totally agree with you.

    They both are very capable but there is a lot of proof that the front bulkhead is not as strong in the LCG as it is in the HCG.

    I agree with Maxx, they both have their ups and downs. I prefer the LCG but it is pretty brittle and doesn't do to well in the snow. It tends to smack the ground off big jumps and requires additional...

    Are you still on the stock servo? If so, the plastic gears may be a bit worn out. The rebuild kit is quite cheap but In this case, its better to go with a higher grade servo.

    Lol. That deal can not be beat.

    OP, That's a great deal if you ask me. I paid the full price of $479+ tax for the base model slash.

    It would be a good idea to pick up a few more pinions. I suggest also the 16t, 18t, and 20t pinions to get you started. Its always a good idea to have more options. Other than that it looks like you...

    That platinum has a great deal of potential with those MIP axles. I would put the MMP and the 2400 motor in it with 20/54 gearing and match it up with those new 4s lipos. You wont regret it one bit ...

    @firefighter

    You can safely gear up to 15/54 with the 5000mah 35c 3s. Set your motor timing to 5* and your LVC at 3.8v's. This is a safe set-up. You can certainly go higher with the gears if you...

    With the 3s, I personally wouldn't gear anything over 19/54 and I would drop the motor timing to 5*. Next up the LVC cut-off to 3.8v's... Seriously. Leaving it at 3.2v's will lead to premature lipo...
