    I've always put a tiny amount of threadlock on pinion threads and have never had an issue removing them with a quality, tight fitting hex driver. The trick is to not overdo it and use the right tool....

    RPM castor blocks are really bad news. Do not buy them! They only don't break because they're even bendier than the stock ones. This flex allows the king pins to bend at the first opportunity....

    I had that happen once and I managed to still extract it buy using a different, better quality hex driver (Hudy). If you've been using a 1.5mm driver, try a 1/16" one as it usually fits but tighter. ...

    If you get the Protrac kit, I would put the lot on the truck if you're racing. For bashing I might swap out the rear carriers for your aluminium ones just to protect the P/L ones.

    Another option...

    You may know this already but winding a small strip of plumber's (PTFE) tape around the thread on the shock body can help prevent those caps from popping off.

    Nothing's wrong with the stock transmission. The stock gears are all steel apart from the spur gear and in my experience very durable when running up to 2S lipo (I don't run 3S so can't comment...

    I agree that 50wt will probably be a bit too thick for racing (most racers are in the 30-40wt zone) but we need a bit more info from you really.

    What type of track will you be running on?

    Also,...

    I would always charge at 1C but opinions differ on whether to balance every single charge. I always do because it's good practice and easy to do. Also store the battery at 3.8-3.85V per cell when not...

    That list looks pretty good to me. Slash rear arms are longer than the Bandit ones though but they are exactly the same as the Nitro Rustler ones for what it's worth.

    Also with the 4-pole you get that really stiff notchy feel when you rotate the shaft with your fingers. ...

    Aha, thanks Billy, that's quick paradigm shift for me!

    I never knew about these (we don't have them this side of the Atlantic methinks). I presume these must all run on a LCG chassis?
