    Make sure EZ start battery is okay and is able to hold a charge. If not I recommend replacing it with a 2 cell LiPo. You will get a stronger cranking out of the EZ start and more starts out of that...

    Oh man match that huge spur gear you are planning on installing with the smallest pinion you can find. Full throttle from a stop you will be doing 4 wheel burnouts WITH smoke.

    The slash 4x4 will flip at 70mph before the XO-1 will. I have owned a Slash 4x4 in the past and I own a XO-1 currently and obviously they are two completely different vehicles. I ran my Slash 100x...

    @Marek K

    The Summit and the Brush-less E-Revo, although sharing the same chassis platform are different in many ways. Ultimately to convert a Summit to a E-Revo you will need to do the following....

    In my experiences, I have tightened down the grub screw fully on the flat side of the motor shaft and it backed out twice on me. Granted the pinion was aftermarket and the threads may have not been...

    Yes almost everyone I have talked to thinks because of how loud a nitro engine is, it is automatically better in every way. All of us in this hobby know that this is simply not the case. I have both...

    Simply Amazed.

    I purchased my XO-1 2 months ago and have probably driven it 5 or 6 times since I bought it. I have hit a GPS confirmed speed of 92 MPH so far. To be honest that is more than enough for me. I have a...

    The only logical reason I can see for that happening is that it is running too hot. I have never seen that before in all 8 gallons on my Jato. Or maybe those zip ties or just total junk.

    Yup the motor is shot. I would take it to your LHS and do a power-up and get a vxl-3s and 3500kv brushless motor combo. I think you save like 80 bucks. It is an expensive hobby, but if you upgrade...

    I use 30% but the tune is the most important aspect for power. A finely tuned Jato running on 20% will smoke a Jato with a poor to fair tune running on 30% all day long.
