    Curious, why did you switch to the VXL-3s? Did you switch to a brushless motor?

    I was looking at the pics earlier, it looks crowded with the servo, esc, & motor together. How did you guys mount the ESC? Pics please!

    Thanks!

    Looks good man!! I want a peak under the hood.

    I have the Castle MMP and 2400kv bolted up on my P4de. I know its a little tight. I did have the controller by the motor and the Rx out of its box. I now have the controller mounted up high on the front of the chassis. I'd like to see your take.

    Here is a pic of my P4de with the goodies.

    I have another pic in the gallery with the body off. But I have since changed the motor out. I'll get another pic with the current motor later today

    So most importantly...how does it bash/trail/crawl? how about when it was stock?

    And got a questions for you Nix, if you don't mind. Noticed you were a member for 12 years with 84 posts, a north Texan, and have a modded Telluride noticably early. Wondering if your last name is Jenkins?

    I am curious to hear about that as well. I have heard mixed reports about the VXL-3s running 4 pole motors.
