    Has anyone done any good comparison testing with the 2-pole and 4-pole velineon systems to see if the 4-pole actually does make more power?

    Is say you're on your way to making a decent crawler conversion. Maybe even consider using 17mm adapters and larger tires, like those from the summit. That would help make up for some of the lack of...

    Sidewinder 8 all day. Unless you're going to try 100mph speed runs, there's no need for the MM2 combo over the SV8 in a slash 4x4.

    It'll be both. The motor needs at least a good 3s lipo to get it going though. 4s is recommended, which can be a lot for a slash 4x4 to handle. The power will be crazy, so get ready to upgrade the...

    I believe HPI's is still a rebranded MM1, unless they've recently updated it. Traxxas' MXL-6s is definitely a MM2.

    Big bone shaft isn't needed unless you bend the stock one, which I've rarely ever seen on a p4de. Even the XL-5 plastic shaft holds up great.

    MIP X-Duty shafts on a p4de are awesome. The steel...

    Another tire to consider would be 2.2 rc4wd rock crushers on RPM full-offset 2.2 black wheels.

    Cut every other left and right lug down on the tread, and you have tires that will grip like crazy...

    New Shocks

    Traxxas GTR shocks from the slash 4x4 platinum/ultimate are what I'd recommend.

    Grass track tires?

    For 2wd in grass, I'd recommend something thin with tall spaced-out blocky tread, like badlands. For the front tires, I'd just stick with stock, unless they don't turn the car enough for you.

    Where will you be running it? That makes a big difference between choosing the slash 4x4 and stampede 4x4.

    2 week old truck running slow.

    +1 they're really pushing that Titan motor by putting it into a slash 4x4 system. Even if it's geared down to 20mph, it's at or beyond its limits.

    The GTR shocks fit fine, but they don't use the same mounting screws on top. They use a screw similar to the bottom ones, but longer. I think they're M3x20.

    You'll have to purchase these screws,...

    If you leave the stampede suspension setup close to stock, they really help with the body roll. The more you tighten up the suspension, the less they help. I still recommend them though.

    Just repair or replace the 2075. $4 for gear replacement, or $25 for the whole thing. A $75 servo is just not needed in a bashing 4x4. It's nice, but unnecessary.

    When I run 2s on a castle 2400 or 2650 in a slash 4x4, I usually change the spur to the smaller 50t, along with a larger pinion. This lets me gear the truck up properly. It runs just fine on 2s, but...

    The viper combo is good in my experience too. But really, either combo will work fine in a slash 2wd. I'm more of a castle guy myself.

    If you stick with 4s, then gear down. 18/68 is too high for that motor. It'll run very fast and very hot. I'd recommend a 13t or 14t pinion.

    The other option would be to run two 3s lipos in...
