    I've heard of some people using windshield wiper motors as "servos" thy wouldn't have position sensing so it wouldn't be proportional.

    Another option would be to get a geared motor and use some...

    Running it in series combines the voltage of the batteries.

    Parallel combines the capacity or mah of the batteries.

    So series will increase speed and parallel will increase run time.

    Honestly I'm surprised it has lasted too. I have it geared way down, but really I'm just waiting for that esc to fry. When it does I've been planning to get the castle sidewinder esc. I can't find...

    I got my mini summit vxl used, and it came with the hobbywing 35a esc. So far it has worked, but the stock esc is rated at 52 amps (if memory servres) so I have been babying it a little. But it...

    Yep several people have tried running dual including me. But without some custom linkages it seems all are doomed to eventually fail. There are several single servos that are stronger than stock. ...

    Yeah my rpm's have been great. I've never popped a pillow ball though, neither has my brother, and we've gotten around (just me guessing) 10 ft of air.

    How about sway bars? I'm pretty sure hot racing sells some. I haven't tried them so I don't know how well they work, but in theory they should help. Of course that would also reduce your...

    I've got some 2.2 beadlocks and rock lizard tires And I love them so I wouldn't limit yourself to just 1.9s.



    I'm 99% sure it's only on the full size slash.

    Huh, that's really interesting I don't think I've ever seen or heard of that before. But I think commando is right it will probably be pretty hard to find the tracks to use and mount them.

    That's a really good Idea to use the wheels as hubs, Ill just need to make sure the wheels I finds are not only 4 lug, but have the same bolt circle as well. I think the weld will be strong enough,...

    I'm pretty sure the gtr's are almost the same as stock, but have aluminum bodies. Whereas the stock bodies are plastic.

    My guess is if you take the front driveshaft out you'll probably get better handling. Since the tire size is different the back wheels are effectively turning faster than the front and since the back...

    You might have some dried mud in some of the gears, you might need to take it apart and clean it as you put it together.

    The series adapter does affect run time, volts=current resistance so when you double the voltage the motor will draw more current draining your batteries faster.

    2 14.4 volts is their nominal voltage not their full charged voltage, a 6v nimh pack can reach up to about 7.2 v or so. So a 12 cell 14.4 v lipo could reach around 17.28v. But under load the...

    The sv3 is only rated for 3s lipo, while the sv3 is more capable than the vxl3 it is because it can handle more current than the vxl3m. There are two ways to make a system more powerful, give it more...

    I've been very happy with my rpm's. But I've also heard a lot of recommendations for aluminium knuckles. I mainly went rpm because they were just at my lhs, and they seemed pretty good.
