    I hate to say it (and you didn't even ask), but you might consider the Chinese packs. My ******* 30C 5200 is one of the best packs I've owned (I've had 2 SPC packs). Makes my Rusty wheelie, even...

    The reason for 50mph plus, is because running at 30-40 is pretty easy without heat issues. Stock Rusty's do that. Also, 50mph Rustys are wicked fun to drive!

    List of STABLE 50mph bashing setups!

    I'm looking for a sample of folks that can reliably bash their Rusty's at 50mph, for entire battery packs without any overheating issues. This means the battery, the ESC and the motor, do not reach...

    They tried to explain it here, but this is pretty buried. To bad the marketing stuff wasn't clearer.

    What is too hot? They can go to 170F safely, but you shouldn't see that with 19/90 gearing.

    I've got an integy and Hot Racing aluminum trannys, and they both work great. My old 7700 dropped 30-40F easy. Not sure what my current 5700 setup would show for temp drop because it's always in an...

    I've got an esc in warranty as well. I was told it will be 1 or 2 weeks before they'll have stock to ship me a new one.

    I'm pretty sure there weren't burrs, because I couldn't even get them on far enough to make it to the grub hole. However, I will try running a drill through them anyway. I think that's a good idea...

    I'm sure they are aluminum. They are the cheap $15 set from Tower: http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin/wti0001p?&W=001706384&I=LXEX35&P=K

    The description on Tower just says they are "high...

    The shaft diameter is too large...barely. Few thousandths, I'd imagine, but it's enough that I can't get any of my 5 piece Robinson set of pinions on there.
  16. Pinions don't fit on motor shaft..?? Anyone have this problem?

    I just bought a new Castle MMP + 5700 combo, and my set of Robinson pinion gears don't fit on the motor. My two Traxxas pinions (19 & 23) fit fine though.

    Weird thing is, the set of Robinson...

    I've owned them for a year, and drive it on the beach and sandy soccer fields frequently. I couldn't believe there was so much sand either.

    I can't believe how much sand got in through the tiny hole in the rim. It's the only way dirt could have gotten in. I was just thinking of plugging up...
  20. Better way to wheel balance...tire removal

    I had to balance my wheels, because they wobble really bad. Before I did that, I decided to remove my tires to see why my wheels were unbalanced.

    It's geared [edit]19/90 at the moment, so while it has awesome modulation of power (zero glitching), and will wheelie for a 1/2 a block, it doesn't have much top end.
