    Something my closest competitor used to do at my old carpet track (where we raced Slash 2WD's six years ago) was to run completely bald rubber tires. That gave him phenomenal grip, especially when he...

    We do not recommend running dual 2S packs in series. The power is too great and will almost certainly result in motor or ESC failure.

    I seriously doubt that there would be enough profit in taking in dead LiPos for the hobby shop to justify paying $5.00 for every single one.

    If you use liquid mask, just cover the whole body with liquid mask. It's just easier that way. Also, if you're going to cut out a design by hand, draw it on the outside of the body, or use a pre-cut...

    I've had more than one 4x4 vehicle, both Stampede and Slash, and I've never needed to shim the diffs. They seem to have been engineered to just the right tolerance from the factory.
