    Did it get wet by chance? I've had that happen before, but usually taking the Rx out and letting it dry solves the issue. Just an idea.

    The HPI Drift Box is a rebadged Futaba g190. I'd go with that one as it drops right in between the Rx and Servo.

    But skmfkr has a good point. A gyro is just a crutch. You can do the same thing as...

    Yeah, that and too many RPMs. The 2 pole VXL rotors aren't kevlar wrapped so they're only really good for up to 50K RPM, unlike the Castle 1406 which can do 100k for short periods of time. I busted...

    It would be smarter to just buy a whole new motor off ebay. Dollarhobbyz has the Velineon 3500 for like 56 bucks. If your motor's two years old there's a chance your bearings aren't in tip top shape...
  5. Anyone else use diff fluid in their shocks?

    I found even with 60wt with the black/tan spring combo the rebound was way too fast and bouncy in the Merv. So I threw some 5000wt diff fluid in the rear shocks and I think it handles a lot better on...

    I think it's just a matter of preference as far as 2wd vs 4wd. I like having both because, although a 4wd is more capable off-road and on tougher terrain, a 2wd will hone your driving skills and...

    The HR aluminum case is great. I use it on all 3 of my Rustlers and have never stripped one out. Even while I was running a MMM/2200kv with the slipper locked down all the way.

    If there's a weak...

    Wise choice! I've never tried the Hawgs but it seems they have a reputation as a jack of all trades kind of tire.

    Gladiators are awesome for grass. You can even wheelie with them. I think the stock ribbed tires work OK for grass too. Too much grip in the front and you'll traction roll very easily.

    2s with the vxl 3500kv isn't even enough RPMs to hit 60 even geared 33/76. Sorry but I just don't buy it either.

    I think people must be using a poorly calibrated telemetry for their readings or...

    GRP Rally wheels work great. They'll hold up to well past 100+mph

    They're about 20 bucks a pair from Bruckner Hobbies

    That's definitely low voltage.

    What size battery? What's the voltage reading when it starts cutting out?

    Unfortunately the VXL-3s is prone to doing that. That's why it's nice having something...

    If you're blowing up bearings I'd check and see that you don't have your wheels cranked down too tight. All four wheels should spin freely with hardly any resistance. RPM is ok, but I've always liked...

    I'd just replace it with the same one. For around 20 bucks they're not bad. I've yet to have any issues with those receivers.

    Most likely your roll pin is broken. Its the small pin that holds the drive gear onto the slipper shaft.

    Are you using mod 1 or 32p?

    What kind of batts? 4s? 6s?

    Its hard to make a recommendation without all the info on your setup.

    Wowzaz! That's a huge tire.

    I'm not a fan of huge tires on the Rusty either but those should really give you a good cushion for big air landings.

    IIRC the stock gearing is 23/83... so about 35mph or so on 2s.

    For the most part it will run cooler on 2s. Of course if it's overgeared and you're trying to zip through tall grass it will heat up...

    Almost everyone uses mod 1 gears for their 100 mph rustler builds. The smallest steel spur I've ever seen for the Rustler is a 50t made by Hot Racing. Why not just get a 34t mod 1 spur?

    Getting a worthwhile brushless combo for 50 bucks is a tall order unless you happen to find something used. Even something like a Hobbywing 60a w/ 3650 motor will be around 90 bucks yet.
