    No, it takes you 45 mins to hit a false peak.

    Next time it peaks, feel the pack. If it's too hot to hold, pull it off and let it cool. Once it's cooled, start it again. If you have a bad cell,...

    IMO, the MERV is just too big for indoor play, and the brushless MERV is just plain way too fast. (Not sure if MERVs are available in brushed, but still way too much for indoors.) About the only...

    If I were making an offer, $150 for the Slash, plus $100 for the VXL, minus $40 for the radio, so I'd probably have $210 in my hand when I made the offer.

    But I got 3 already, and could stand to...

    That helps quite a bit, thank you.

    Looks like Associated gives you choices of 72,75,78,81, & 84 teeth. I think with the stock Slash you're limited to 83,86, & 90, so your gearing won't be...

    Greasing up the o-rings at the bottom of the shock body usually makes them smoother (provided your shafts are in good shape), not sure if that's what you meant by 'softer'.

    The Duratrax 230/235 are seven amps, yes, but still limited to 50 watts. On a 3S battery, I doubt it'll even reach 4 watts.
