    With smaller teeth there are more of them touching at the same time allowing them to handle the same amount of force that less larger teeth can as long as the mesh is tight. 32p is so sloppy that it...

    The smaller teeth have a larger contact area than larger gears. Because of that and way less slop they are stronger. 64p is such a tight mesh that it has to be kept very clean otherwise a small grain...

    I have never had an issue with 48p be it on my 2wd's or crawlers. Every once and awhile something gets stuck in the teeth and makes some noise but its never big enough to damage anything. 32p breaks...

    32p is not always stronger than 48p. You just have to set you mesh properly. 64p could be even stronger than 32 or 48 but the teeth are so small that its incredibly difficult to set the mesh and the...

    The stock chassis does not drop the battery down much at all. The Xtreme one has been around long enough that I highly doubt there will be an issue with mounting a esc. By the looks of it you just...

    To keep the Stampede the vehicle it was intended to be a original length chassis is a must. The stock plastic one is more than up to the task but if you rather have aluminum I believe XtremeRC still...

    It can be done but its not all that helpful to a 2wd vehicle especially one as top heavy as the Stampede.

    They don't have hexes. They are nitro fronts which use bearings in the wheel rather than the carrier.

    Some 35mm Axial posts with some washers at either end would be the way to go. They are even available in a few different colors.

    Very cool to see another pop up. And I am sure we can come up with something to mount the cab.

    Brushed motors are just as fast around the track as brushless setups. But they require much more maintenance to do so. A good brushed motor will also last a long time but the cheap sealed motors tend...

    Integy has a bad reputation for a very good reason. That reason being that their aluminum parts are garbage made from clay with some aluminum flakes thrown in. More than a few thousand people have...

    Even the big 4wd's have trouble in "snow". On hard pack or ice you can drive a stampede but in actual snow it will be useless. Best thing to do is not drive it in the snow.

    Having 3 less teeth on the spur will make a noticeable difference. And if he installs a 23 tooth pinion with the 90t spur it will make a big difference over the 19/90 setup.

    May be to safe. A motor can be over geared or under geared.


    And if you cant get a smaller spur increase the pinion size.

    Switch to a 86 tooth spur. Your gearing may be a little to low which will cause heat. I run 20/83 and have no issues.

    You will be better off gearing things properly than running fans. Small fans never last long and on a RC their lifespan is even shorter.

    They are better than bone stock ultra's. But if you install aluminum caps on the ultra's it becomes really hard to justify the big bores. If they had threaded bodies I would be all for them. As to...

    It should be noted that "Big Bores" are not big at all. Years ago Traxxas did run a smaller piston in their shocks and at the time "Big Bores" were bigger. Today they are standard size.
