    I ended up buying a Futaba Radio and eBaying off the Traxxas radio. Sorry, I love Traxxas Trucks but I hate their transmitters.

    I have used the coupons more than once in the past. If you still can do this I am not sure. That’s a good idea if you are buying more than just the two trucks, just split the order into more than...

    No problem. I didnít feel attacked. I was just curious why some people had problems with the XL-1 and I (rather my kids) did not have a problem. I never let them use their trucks in the rain or...

    No. If you go with a XL-5 you will be able to use a lower turn motor at a later date if you'd like.

    I mentioned the XL-1 because you should be able to get a good used one cheap. For about $150...

    I’d just buy an electronic speed control. They are much more reliable than the old mechanical speed controls. Maybe check eBay for a used “Traxxas XL-1 ESC”

    Whenever I get around to it I plan...

    I used both the VXL links & the rod ends. Since I keep breaking things now that the truck is brushless, I'd like to fix as many remaining weak spots in the truck without going aluminum.

    Gearbox Variations?

    Is there a difference between the transmission that comes standard in a XL-5 Stampede verses the VXL Stampede? I see that they both are advertised containing a Magnum 272 transmission. Thank you!
