    I personally stopped bothering balancing tires a long time ago, at least with off-road trucks.

    AFAIK, tires should be balanced AFTER you've run them for the first time, in order to have everything "settle" properly.
    However, balancing off-road/bashing tires is useless in my eyes, as the above...

    People do not recommended me to keep using the Traxxas connectors with my setup, because of the risk of them getting too hot and melting the black connector.

    Yup, it's in Dutch.
    RCblog.nl and that video are from my hand, and I'd say: the best truly waterproof brushless upgrade there is for the Summit.

    Thanks guys.

    About the rudder with dual water pickup: what are the sources to buy that one for an exact Spartan drop-in? I assume Traxxas themselves don't make that?

    Is the tech good in the new 5707L Spartan?

    Hey guys,

    If you'd buy a brand new 2013 Spartan (5707L), can you safely expect the electronics (read: the VXL-6S and motor) to be good and reliable?
    I ask because of the "first versions" being...

    120A Car ESC and the Spartan

    Hey guys,

    Both the EVX-2 ESC and the Titan 775 are rated for up to 4S.
    2 x 3S (in series) = 6S and that will smoke them both.

    Thanks guys.
    I just thought it looked a little awkward having like 5 mm of exposed suspension pin. Also looked a little vulnerable to me, but at least I know it's supposed to be that way.

    Hi guys,

    Thanks a lot.
    Well, ok, the ESC is still working ok, but I then guess it's in "time bomb mode" now.
