    I mounted my rpm/speed sensor on the gear cover. Took about 2 hrs of trial and error to get it positioned correctly. Had to cut a hole in the cover and use a piece of plastic shim to mount it on -...

    I have a VXL 'pede and with my 3s lipo it's almost impossible to keep the front end down at all. A 2s lipo is more than enough for what I do with it, it will still do wheel stands at half throttle....

    nickf, I cant compare it to the 4600 since I dont have one. But compared to the MM 5700 that I run in another 'pede it is slower, but the MM seems (to me) to put out more power anyway (compared to...

    But I know it does happen... So to keep the original/scale...

    Why WOULDN'T a coathanger work? It would be a cheap and easily made sway bar. If it works, dont knock it. It doesn't have to be pretty, just functional.

    Try some traxxas 2.2 rims (P/N 3674) and some Proline Dirt Hawgs. I have done this, they look scale and fit under the body with just a bit of body rub, and its MUCH cheaper than the $105 bead locks.
