    STRC, Traxxas, and Dynamite make good Al parts. New Era used to make Al tranny cases, you need to call to see if they still do. Xtreme Racing make a good Al chassis.

    There are 3 main areas to watch for to avoid headaches when upgrading to Al. 1) The truck needs to be able to bottom out on hard landings, if not axles are going to become bent ALL of the time. 2) I...

    Back when I got mine they were advertised as lifetime guarantee. I wonder when they stopped it.

    I have Al shock towers which allow for more options for upper shock mount positions. You can use any of these, as long as it still allows the truck to bottom out. I didn't have to do anything but...

    The main difference between using thicker oil and using smaller holes is how the oil flows with smaller movements. Light oil flows more easily, as long as the holes are large enough to allow...

    I went from a stock brushed Slash to a 90% upgraded Slash, and finally the E-Revo. I find I use the upgraded Slash for 2 main reasons: 1) usually the E-Revo is too big and fast for the areas I run,...

    I use stock oil, just swapped to the smallest hole piston heads in the variable dampening kit. It keeps the soft suspension on the small bumps but helps greatly, compared to stock, on the jumps.

    The tires are all the same for both 2x4 and 4x4. The difference in the 2x4 Slash wheels is the offset. I believe the 4x4 just used the same wheels as the 2x4 fronts (rears, if I'm wrong) for all 4.

    I looked into it before. I doubt that it will cause any stress on the bearing, compared to the normal stress that it gets. They actually have a video of one installed on an E-Revo. I believe their...

    I'm using black springs in the rear and tan in the front, recommend if you are going to be jumping. Variable dampening piston heads too, for racing.

    I use the stock 40wt oil but use the smallest hole piston heads. I like the soft response on the small bumps and it does well on jumps too.

    Replace them and check the rest of the bearings on the truck, more may be bad too. I'm sure the noise is related to bad bearings.

    The way I avoid the issue of having the screws for the shocks back out is to use screws long enough to go form the back through the shock and a lock nut (believe 20mm or 25mm). STRC makes bushings...

    Sounds like the screw couldn't handle it, not the bulkhead. Use a left-handed drill bit, while it is biting into the screw it will back it out.

    I've been using 2 TP pack sets, a 40C and a 50C, with no issues. Both sets easily hold 10% more than they are rated for and held their charge for 6mo (at 100% charge). I thought I had them charged...
