    Strickly off road/tracks go with the JConcepts Goosebumps. They grip like it's on rails on a track. They aren't any good though on pavement. They will wear in no time. My .02.

    I don't agree with a 32 p being a lot better. Bigger teeth = sloppy teeth. Also if you take the time to set up everything correctly, you shouldn't (not won't) but shouldn't strip gears. The...

    I snug tighten with the supplied wrench, then 1/2 turn back off. I did chew up a spur, but a pebble got in. Another tip is get a Losi pinion, 48 t pitch. It will make your slash whisper quiet. ...

    IMO 160-165 is as hot as you should go. Even that's a little toasty. I know that Traxxas manual says 200, but I would't want it to get there. IMO motor damage starts around 170-175, and gets worse...

    How did all your spurs/pinions hold up? Also the motor itself. Sand just gets everywhere, and is a killer. When I take my nitros to Glamis it's a different type of sand, but it still gets in...

    I'm not digging that style, but it's only my opinion. I still am leaning towards the narrow revolvers. I know as soon as I do buy them, somebody will come out with a cool wheel.

    Pavement driving will eventually kill the motor from heat related issues. Same with tall grass, those conditions just put too much strain on the motor/esc. Try to find some dirt. Another tip is...

    IMO, that's tempting fate. The gear cover is there for a reason, and the RPM one without the hole is even a better option. I've already torn up a spur/pinion with a microscopic pebble, :lol: . ...

    The Traxxas 90T is a good choice. I have it in mine. Go with a Losi 19T 48 pitch. 19/90 very good for instant/hard acceleration, give a little bit up in the top end. Nothing you would notice. ...
