    U have lipos? If not I would recommend venom 3s or traxxas 3s. Perhaps some rpm a arms. Make it as light as possable. I don't know anything about shock weight but I put 50 weight in mine.

    Lol that is exactly the same as my dad! I barely and I mean baaarreelllyy was able to get a vxl motor and esc for my slash yet I have tons of money extra lol! My dad says its a wast of money and I should be saving up for new tire/rim combo for my qaud haha

    Edit: I would get 2 8000 mah 3s traxxas lipos or 5000 mah which ever you want.. Then I would get a thunder ac6 charger for 40 bucks! http://www.hobbypartz.com/thac6smbachw.html

    Nice build

    Maybe you can use 32p gears (stock are 48p)
    It have bigger teeth= more strength and have more range of gearings.

    haha like my esc mount i know 32 pitch have bigger teeth.. all 4x4 traxxas vehicules have them and once i opened up my cover on the motor i was surprised thinking they would be smaller. if i ever go 32p i will go 18/50 and go up from there.

    Not sure, have not heard a lot about them. BTW piggy backs offer no better performance on such a small level (as 1:10 scale RC), drop the extra doe only for looks.

    I see I just like the EZ- peak because it traxxas and the only parts I've broken on both my trucks were a rear carrier and front a-arm. When this 2wd here had a Titan t-12 I ran it for over a year!! I got bored and put the castle in 3weeks ago and now the brushed set up is sitting it a box collecting dust....

    For LiPo and a charger I would look into Spcracing- you can easily find their website.

    I own the Soft Case Battery Pack; 5400mAh , 50C, 3S, 11.1V

    It is great. As for a charger set up I currently own the Onyx 230 with equinox balancer. Solid Combo BTW, but it is sort of out of date the onyx 235 looks like a great value (balancer is built in)- but i cannot say because I don't personally own it- but I plan for that to be my next charger

    That's the hot racing one? Is that like 28$ ? How many degrees Celsius or Fahrenheit does it take of your motor temps?

    Yes, is hot racing

    I am not using stock VXL (if so, I am going to use my watercooling system), so I don't think is important because I am using a mamba monster, and it just get a bit warm than the ambient temperature (here in Costa Rica like 22 C to 24 C), but in other reviews i look the temps down from 5 to 15 and sometimes 20 degrees (Fahrenheit), but it depend in what conditions are you running, where, how hard is you with the throttle and the ambient temperature.

    22 C to 24 C is the coolest in the day. On the day is 25C to 27C(right now) and sometimes 30C, maybe you can think is cold but is very hot because of the humidity of the day.
    Here in Costa Rica we have 2 seasons: the dry season known to the residents as summer, and the rainy season, known locally as winter. (we are on rainy season) You can't imagine the dry season

    More info: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Costa_rica#Climate

    And my mamba is a bit more warm than the ambient temperature
