    There's no real necessity for matching tires, unless you are running on sand or something similar. There are several types of tires that do have more bite (Trenchers, for example), and can be better...

    Rally/Mustang questions

    I finally indulged and decided to pick up a rally roller since the prices seem to be dropping with the 1/10 scale being released. I briefly owned a MERV and found I didn't really like it compared to...

    The traxxas wheelie bar is a good overall option as it does everything you need it to. My only complaint is that the wheels that come with it are hard plastic and tend to wear out quickly. You can...

    I had just the bar and I found that I was snapping rear chassis braces frequently (note: I also have an aluminum trans and front bulkhead, so my weak point was the rear brace and where the chassis...

    I'm a big big fan of the swami bars. They add a bit of rigidity to the chassis (or quite a bit if you go full brace), and the wheels are superior to the plastic ones you get with the stock bar.

    I did my nitro rustler body in the flipflop green/purple and it looked amazing.... for about two weeks. For some reason, I had really bad luck with the body. It flexed a lot and nearly tore in half...

    They will have reamers at most hardware stores too - I'd check there as reamed holes tend to lend themselves to adding time to your body life. Ragged body holes will tend to tear on impact and will...

    Typically start around 16/86 or 16/90 and adjust your pinion from there. I find the sweet spot with my trucks is usually around 19/86. But driving style plays a huge factor, so grab a handful of...

    The titan is overgeared out of the box. Most people would suggest 16/86 or 16/90 to keep your brushed motor cool and happy. The best suggestion is to get a few different pinions and an IR temp gun...

    Some guys run the slash bumper on the rear, but its not going to fix what you want to fix. A wheelie bar (traxxas, tbome. swamibar) will prevent the stampede from flipping over. A rear bumper...

    There are different mounting holes for the 4x4 and the 2wd. The 4x4 has three holes in a triangular pattern and the 2wd has four mounting holes for the bumper.

    I've had a week to beat this latest setup and apparently my weakest point is my rear skid, as I've replaced two of them this weekend. I may order a full brace swami bar to correct it, but we'll see....
