    Good, the guy that was directed at caught the reference.

    All ya need is a black tie and some shades. Takes care of the squintyness.

    Um, simply because I had it. Besides, if I bought "normal marine grease" I'd have the stuff for a millenium. I have no use for it, really.

    If you have such low traction that it just sits and spins, you can loosen the slipper slightly. This should aid in gaining traction, though Traxxas says the slipper in the Maxx is not for traction...

    Slow drivers are not the cause of an accident. If you rear-end someone, it is always your fault. Period. You were simply following too closely.

    I've heard the argument that if you are driving fast...

    The cups come packed, as I recall. I just use a light coating of Traxxas Silicone grease on all the gears.

    Yeah, just don't go too low. Mine won't wheelie very well in gear 1 anymore. More torque than traction on almost every surface...

    Frankly, 18t pinions don't fit very well with a 72t spur. It's really too tight for proper gear mesh. I couldn't even get the 18t to fit with the 72 on my stock E. Bigger than an 18t pinion won't fit...

    Just because it can be done, doesn't mean that it should be. I'm not saying that you're going to ruin anything either, but it does open you up for greater damage due to operator error.

    All manual transmissions move through neutral when shifting, it's just that the ratcheting mechanism does it for you when you operate a sequential shifter such as on a bike.

    You've got a nice fingerprint on that "wheel" there, Tom. It does look pretty nice though.

    Not to my knowledge the new A-arms do not move the shockmounts at all. They still have to work with standard (old now, I guess) shock towers. I'd either put a flat spot on the spring retainer or put...

    I might just take you up on the offer. They look like they'd be perfect for keeping the temps down on the EVX.

    No, I don't want the wider wheels. If I wanted ridiculously wide wheels, I'd go with the UGLY 40 series, at least they have a bead lock available.

    If you want to talk about a trail running E-Maxx, go ahead and ask me. That is what I do with mine.

    I just have a fan mounted to the gear cover, more or less, and keep the air blowing over the EVX. No new air in. It keeps the EVX cool enough, but the motors get kinda warm.

    Either the Nitro Sport or the N. Rustler. Possibly the N. Stampede.

    Since you already have a Maxx, the T might be a good way to go.

    If you run on pavement a lot, the masher might be the best, but I only ever cross it so I think the best tire is the Swamp Dawg. They even provide good traction in snow. (Now that it finally snowed.)...
