    My truck was doing somewhat similar, but it was chattering the steering. After replacing the servo, receiver, ESC, and all of the batteries, I was supremely frustrated, and dropped the transmitter...

    I've had the same thing happen about 3 times over 3 days/15 hours of racing at the track. I think the jar of a hard landing is just enough to do it.

    Your curb toss sounds a lot like my 67mph understeer into a driveway edge launching my Slash 2wd into a fire hydrant. Looked like a Traxxas parts yard sale... :D

    Sixers/bowties. Beadlocks are awesome, the tires grab almost too much, I have to feather the throttle or she just ends up on her lid. :)

    I'm running the Sixer beadlocks and bowtie tires on my Slash VXL/Velineon/3 cell LiPo- almost too much grab, and they won't tear the beads.

    I really wonder how many Integy bashers actually have had Integy parts or are just regurgitating what they've read online.

    What weight oil do they include with the big bore kit? I just dumped it in, mine didn't say anything that I could find. I think the stock oil was softer.

    I smapped an RPM a-arm hitting a curb at about 35mph on a slight angle, but that isn't the parts' fault.
