    AZ Racer X, some good news - I have some spring rate data for you on the Integy Slash spring sets, part nos T8087 and T8088. Results are in lb/inch.

    I actually measured them a few years ago but...

    I understand that Traxxas put progressive springs in the stock truck to make its handling and appearance as realistic as possible (i.e. they deliberately engineered in that body roll).

    There are...

    On technical dirt tracks I used to run 12/54 with that motor (roughly 19/86), moving up to 14/54 (roughly 22/86) for larger tracks or ones with particularly long straights. I reduced the sensorless...

    As I've experienced this meshing issue on brand new trucks I always assumed the spurs were at fault, not the layshafts, but hey, maybe they're not straight either!

    To be fair, I've only bought...

    There's no one "best" gearing as it depends on how you're using the truck. For general running around, 19/86 is a safe place to start in most situations but it's always best to get a temp gun and...

    Aluminium caster blocks. Without them your king pins will bend very, very quickly and bind up your steering. Probably the only truly "essential" upgrade IMO.

    Other than (Traxxas) pinions wearing a little prematurely and grit getting stuck in the spur teeth, I've never had an issue with 48P and still run it in several trucks. I've certainly never stripped...

    Certainly the easiest solution, otherwise just drop down to an 86T spur. It makes a tiny % difference to the gearing ratio.

    The cover fits 32P spurs with the STRC top shaft / AE slipper conversion (a great mod if you're racing). If you use the 54T Jato 32P spur, you can still get a gear cover on by putting 2-3mm plastic...

    Yes, the VXL has chunky 4mm adjustable steel camber links and 4mm steering arms. The XL5 has plastic non-adjustable camber links and smaller (3mm I think) steering arms.

    Stock TRX covers fits up to 90T (in fact it's the stock Slash 2WD spur). RPM state their gear cover fits up to 87T spurs, presumably because it doesn't have the big gap in the side.

    I agree completely. It's an awesome ESC with great build quality and very smooth as you say. It's now my favourite ESC for sensorless applications. I now only use my MMP with sensored motors.

    I always assumed the pin is hollow so that it can compress very slightly when inserted into the top gear to grip it for the reasons ponie1992 just mentioned.
