    It amazes me seeing all these advertisements on, what was then, top of the line stuff, especially brushed motors and batteries. Transmitter crystals, There's a list here of some battery models, they...

    Aluminum parts for my old RC10 GT. Plastic isn't such a bad thing.

    At those speeds, aerodynamics are a huge role, more so than weight. Have you considered taking off the front and rear bumpers? I bet remoing the body posts would help too, in cutting drag. Your...

    Actually, fans are very vulnerable. Mine broke from a tiny pebble that lodged its way into it. I scrape any dirt off, blow out dust, and check for loose screws after almost every run. Sometimes I...

    I use JJConcept Subcultures (Super Soft) in the rear and Proline Hole Shots (Soft) in the front.

    Tires make a huge difference. Whatever you choose, be sure to run a softer compound in the rear. I have JConcept Subcultures (Super Soft) in the rear and Proline Hole Shot (Soft) in the front. I...

    I know that it can be fixed, but with the abuse your truck has seen, it has a lot more problems that a broken chassis. I bet all four A arm pins have shifted loose, tweaked spindles, wheel casters...

    JConcept Subcultures (Super Soft) are what I use for the rear, and Proline Hole Shots (Soft) in the front. Make sure the rears are softer than the front. The track I go to is mostly hard packed, with...

    Sorry, I'm not sure... the T Maxx body might be too narrow to fit without stretching the sides... or maybe you could take off those nerf bars.. as for the body post height... no idea.

    JConcept Subcultures are my favorite tire for the rear. Proline Gladiators are similar, and just as good. Go with a small pin/ dot tire tread, not knobby mud swampers.

    No other hop ups or bolt ons have a drastic effect as upgrading to brushless power. Small pin tires for the rear would be the next biggest improvement, especially a Super Soft pair. Better...

    The best and most affordable option is the Traxxas Power Up program where you trade in your XL5 and Titan 550, and get the Velineon VXL ESC 3S and brushless motor for $130 (plus tax). I handed my...

    Rustler feels just like the slash. It just sits a bit lower and is narrower. I wouldn't bother with a Monster Jams or a Stampede. They're not crawlers and flip over too easily. I think you should...

    I've had Trenchers, but have since used "pin" tires. JConcept Subcultures for the rear, Proline Hole Shot 2.0's front. My best setup for the track. Gladiators are great too, just don't go with Super...

    Ehh... then you'd have 3 trucks that are similar. The good thing would be having spare parts between the slash and stampede. It'd get boring after awhile. I say branch out from Traxxas and look into...

    Just wondering, you guys pulling wheelies, are you running stock tires, and stock springs? Mine doesn't, but if I put a bunch of preload spacers in the back (Stiffening rear suspension) it barely...

    Thanks for the input, I guess the slicers/carvers don't work too well on dirt/gravel. They're best for sand and snow. Guess I'm gonna match the rear, or find something like bow ties or blockades....

    I have two of the thickest bump stop clips (two on each side) on the rear of my slash, and it has helped with the back bottoming out. I plan on getting stiffer springs for the rear since I'd rather...
