    I was just running mySlayer Pro when a guy with a Losi 5T showed up. As soon as his truck got on the track, my radio started glitching. The throttle shut down and would sporadically work and my front...

    I have had my Slayer now for about 6 onths and absolutely love it. It is challenging to handle, especially if you are coming from nitro truggys or monster trucks. After you learn to drive it, it is...

    Nitro Sport bogging at full throttle

    I have a Nitro Sport that is about 1 month old. I broke it in as per the instructions, but the last time I ran it, the truck would bog and cut out at full throttle. I could gently bring it up to full...

    Had mine for about 6 months now and can drift it all day long......takes a lot of practice though. Driving the Traxxas 1/16ths takes a lot of practice AND discipline. These little things are crazy...

    My explanation is this. I have the same car and can drive it and drift it pretty well. All it takes is throttle control and judicious use of the steering wheel. The technique I use is the same as...

    You may want to go back to stock after running it with the 50+ option installed. It isn't much fun running in a straight line as I found out. I went back to the stock config and I use 2200 Mah LiPo...

    All of my 1/16th Traxxas models (Slash, MERV, Boss 302, Rally) are completely stock. I just run the 2s Lipos and am getting the 30+ MPH advertised and the 35-40 minute runtimes. I know they are...

    I run mine on a 2200 mah 2s 20c lipo and get 40-45 minutes of FAST runtime. HOw could the spur and pinion not be in contact? What exactly are the specs on the battery? I assume you are trying to get...

    This is what you will need:

    1. Extra battery like the one that came with the car.
    2. Install the optional "speed" pinion that came in the box with the car.
    3. Traxxas "series" Y harness...

    You should have never driven it when you knew the servo was toast. It is definately a fried ESC.

    I totally agree Jimmie. I just made the suggestion because everyone is obsessed with getting 50 MPH out of these minis. I find that with a 2S 30C LiPo these cars are too fast as it is. My Mini Slash...

    Yeah, that sounds about right for two 2200 mah LiPos run in parallel. I get about 40-45 minutes on 1 2200 mah LiPo with the stock pinion. You would need to get the "Series" connector to get the speed...

    Once you make it fit, you are going to have a MERV that you will have to drive very carefully. My MERV with the stock VLX system and a 2000 mAh 20C LiPo is very, very fast. You may have one...

    Wow, is that even gonna fit in there? The Sidewinder SCT is usually for 1/10th scale vehicles. The motor will probably fit, but isn't the ESC too large?

    Yes, I have run a 2000 mAh Venom LiPo battery in my brother's brushed Fiesta, but I only ran it for 10 minutes before I quit, fearing for the life of my LiPo. It didn't really add any speed to the...

    yeah, 1000 feet for a car is pretty ridiculous if you ask me. Can you even see a car at that distance? I can see that for a plane or chopper but for a car.....800 ft. is adequate I would say. As for...

  23. How critical is engine breaking on Traxxas 3.3

    Tower hobbies has a special right now with 50 bucks off a $299.00 order if you order before June 30. That would put this car at $250.00 with no shipping charge. I may do this myself.
