    I normally don't believe what I read until I've tried it. In my experience, if I never fully discharged my packs, I could NEVER put the full capacity charge back into them. I have gotten at least...

    The Big Bores are good shocks, but they aren't long enough. They don't allow the suspension arms to fully extend which limits the suspension.

    I would get the MIP Thorp hex drivers. They are the most precise and hardest you can get.

    NiMH cells do have a memory. If it's a stick pack, slowly discharge the pack to .9 volts per cell.

    Yep. Just wanted to see what it would do. At that gearing, the motors were pulling so much juice from the batteries, the batteries were getting too hot. Here is the thread:

    I only got mine up to 60 mph with some 36T spur gears and some 36T pinions. The gearing was WAY too much for those motors.

    That isn't true. I've run 100 cycles through 2 different batteries. I was charging one of them at 1C and the other at 2C and after those cycles, both batteries accept the same amount of charge and...

    Yea. I think those motors reached their limit with that taller gearing I had. They just heated up way too quick.

    I think the Neu 1515/1D on 4 cells would be able to get it faster!

    I have the MRC Super Brain 989 and I love it. I charge my 3 cell Venom 5400 lipos at 10 amps. Most good lipos can easily accept a 2C charge.

    Yes. I took the truck to a long smooth road and only got it up to 60 mph. After a long full speed run, the motors got up to 200 degrees. After 2 full speed runs, they hit 224 and then I called it...

    Putting a spool in the rear??

    What effect would it have on the truck if I put the Traxxas spool in the rear of my truck? I just blew the rear diff and don't want to keep fixing it.

    I just took my dual Velineon out to try some sport 7.2v Nimh stick packs and it was pretty funny. My top speed with these was 25 mph compared to the 47 I'm doing with my Venom 3 cell lipos.

    I have the 3 cell 5400 mah 20C venoms in mine and they fit fine in the trays, but I have to use Velcro to strap them in. I've even tried the Traxxas extended battery arms and they don't work.
