    I completely agree. Definitely get some durability upgrades first before you upgrade the speed of your truck. More speed typically means more broken parts. I have not broken my stock A-arms on the...

    I bought a used 1/16 E-Revo VXL a couple weeks ago. After the 2nd run, I needed new knuckles (axle carriers) because the pivot ball kept popping out. I also noticed that my shocks were leaking oil...

    Yep, I had to reprogram the ESC in order to change it to 70/30 and I also changed the Profile to #1. I also verified that Low Voltage Detection was turned off and the ESC was/is in NiMH mode. The guy...

    I reset the ESC within 60 seconds of running it because they had the throttle position on 50/50 and I like it on 70/30. You made a great call on the antenna wire! I took the straw off of the...

    Hello all,
    I've been in the RC hobby for around 8 years. My first "hobby grade" RC was an XL-1 Rustler. I now have 3 1/10 scale Stampedes (1 VXL, 2 XL-5) and I just recently sold a 1/10 scale Slash....

    Well, I think I'm gonna go ahead and order the Sidewinder 4600. $99 for a quality brushless ESC and motor is a great deal. With the Stampede XL-5 now coming waterproof, I figure they will eventually...
