    I've used the cheaper version of Dynamite tools for a few years. Never had an issue. When you need to replace a chassis they are way worth the money.

    I have two XL5's that my kids drive and a VXL for me. I I don't mind fixing a few things occasionally. I now have tightened the XL5 slippers almost all the way down. Wheelies are now much more...

    How are the street fighters when it comes to ballooning? I did some speed runs with a basically stock truck and could not hit 50 mph because the Talons ballooned so bad the truck became unstable.

    I don't think it's necessary to do the stub axles until they break. I have three trucks, one being a VXL and in three years I have never broken one and just recently twisted my first drive shaft. ...

    Were you running 3s with the slipper 1/8th backed off with the stock tranny? Seems like trouble to me....

    Why not put the bedliner on the inside only? Less weight and you keep the graphics.

    It would be a perfect starter truck and super cheap if the batteries end up being in decent shape. It does need a little TLC but it's pretty close to RTR. :cool:

    I am using it for parts. I have a VXL and my kids have XL5s. Pretty much stock other than the necessities like RPM bumpers and wheelie bars.

    It's been done and documented on this forum for sure. I read the thread a long time ago. I think it was a 4wd car, maybe the stampede? Try a search?

    What wheelie bar is this? I don't really like, doesn't let the front end come up enough. Have not had a chance to run it. Needs an alignment and yes I know the tires are on backwards. :wacko:

    No clue what body that is. I have never seen another Traxxas product up close. It has never been on the truck but it looks like it should fit.

    This has been mentioned before in other threads but I will say it again. For me, spending an extra $150 dollars for a VXL truck vs XL5 makes economical sense and is the right way to go in the long...

    Interesting, they also have a screw kit with 8 bearings for $25. I hate the XL5 screws and need bearings for my kids trucks.

    I am a believe in good tools but $40 for three bits is steep. I realized I can use my Dynamite bits in a electronic driver. The Dynamite set is great but for big projects it would be nice to have a...
