    I've been running a 1415 for years now and I only had issues with the differential once and only when all the lube in one of them dried out and the gears started to grind down. The one that still...

    Trenchers should not be heavier than Talons. I'm not sure where that came from.

    Well the article said they had it since 2007. Maybe the replacement will be a 4x4.

    One thing to consider is that it gets HOT over there. Like 120+ I'm not sure how that would work out as far as...

    That would put it at what, $600 at least? Do you think there is a market for a $600+ stampede?

    I don't understand, what could be heating up the axles to the point that they would get hot enough to melt plastic?

    Friction maybe? When was the last time you put lube on the axles?

    If the controller wasn't bound properly, then he probably wouldn't have steering either. Though a recalibration might not be a bad idea.

    What kind of battery? There might not be anything wrong with the battery but if you are trying to use a NiMH pack with LVC enabled it will cause the problem you describe.

    Have you checked to see if one of your RPM arms is bent? They won't break after a hard impact like the stock arms but they will bend.

    What your asking for is difficult using the stock CVD axles and unfortunately the replacements are expensive.

    In my case at least that was not true. I installed the Slash 4x4 versions in my Stampede and shortly afterward my friend got the real Stampede 4x4 versions for his Stampede 4x4 and had me install...

    The Slash 4x4 axles will work fine, that is what I'm using now. Your LHS was wrong though, as the Stampede 4x4 versions have been released now. Thankfully the differences are minor.

    Wait a sec, so using tekno axles requires the use of custom hexes (and what looks like custom bearings) also?

    Sounds like another reason to go MIP imo.

    You shouldn't need to double-up, but it's been my experience that locknuts loose their locking ability gradually the more times they are removed and rescrewed. Just get a small bottle of blue...

    That pack really doesn't look that bad. Stick it on the charger and if it balances out OK then it should be fine. It might have reduced capacity but it should definitely still work.

    The only time I have ever stripped a hex is when a wheel nut backs off. Even if you tighten them very well beforehand, and even using locknuts, it's not always enough to stop them from backing out. ...

    I'd love to see how those Rulux 2.8 wheels compare to the new Proline Desperado wheels, since both use standard traxxas bead now. I'd mainly just like to find something that is stronger in the hex...

    It depends what you mean by best really.

    As sad as it sounds, I'd say the stock bodies are actually more durable than the proline bodies. The proline bodies use thicker plastic than the stock...

    The 2400kv castle motor will run fine on 2s with higher gearing, or even with lower gearing (with a slower top-end). The 3800kv is probably better optimized for 2s, but that certainly does not mean...

    My 3s 5000mah 20c packs are good for extended WOT sessions, 100 yard wheelies, and 30+ minute bashing sessions with my MMP/2400kv geared 18/54. YMMV.

    They do list 17/54 with 3s on the box, but I wouldn't go as far as to say that is "recommended". I think they are just giving you an example of a top-speed configuration. It's also listed as "Skill...
