    One of my trucks was stolen out of the back of my car almost exactly 3 years ago, I lost pretty much all of my RC motivation and have been trying to get back into the hobby since.

    The VXL will do it out of the box with the aforementioned 3s lipo (make sure to get one that can handle over 100 amps continuously) with the proper gearing. That kind of speed on the stock tires...

    Definitely check the clutch. Probably just a bad spring. Check eBay for springs/clutches, etc otherwise hit up a LHS or one of us. If that doesn't work let us know so we can help you track down a...

    What are we looking for? I'm no longer a subscriber because they base reviews on how much $$$$ they get from that company for advertising but from what I can tell from their website it's a 1/8th...

    It would definitely make a good project. I like the Villain IV for it's scale appeal, you can do a lot of little mods to make it look realistic, then underneath do whatever you'd like.

    The FLM one is a bit spendy, but it's worth it. Top notch machining, materials, and overall quality. When I got mine I didn't even bother shimming the gears and it was already much smoother and...

    That would be a good way to go. 2s would give nice, slow speeds for your kids or neighbors to drive on, 3s would be plenty to bash on, then step the voltage up from there for speed runs. IMO that...

    4600 on 2x 2s lipos in parallel will give you insane power plus amazing run times. I run the stock Velineon setup in mine with 2x 1800 mAH packs in parallel and get an hour or more of just messing...

    The stock plastic gearbox will need some trimming to fit, and the weight of the motor may cause it to flex and strip gears. I stuffed a Tekno edition Neu 1515 into my Rustler years ago and ran into...

    I wouldn't recommend it. If memory serves, that motor is only rated to turn 45k RPMs, 8s would put it up to just under 49k RPMs if you run it flat out. The most I'd run is 7s, which puts you below...

    There is a program out there that can use the doppler effect to determine how fast something is going. I don't know how precise it is but people use it on RC planes a lot, especially the 100+ MPH...

    This is true, but GPS units are pretty accurate and GPS phones are close enough to call good enough. I made my record run in my Rustler many years ago at 76.7 MPH on the GPS and never doubted it...

    I've broken a few stock tools, and rounded out a few more. Hudy tools are a quality part for a decent price. Over the years I've worn mine down a bit and had a few problems but overall I'd say...

    Sorry about being late getting back to you. I still have one of the motors available.

    They used to have one but nobody bought one. Could be cool to see a new one but they're very expensive to buy and maintain and therefore have a pretty small customer base. Not saying it couldn't...

    I can do shipping to Canada, probably only be a few extra $ for shipping. Usually shipping to Canada isn't bad.

    EDIT: What's your post code? I can get a quote from the Post Office if you'd like.

    2 New Velineon motors

    I bought these as part-outs on eBay a few years ago to put in my dual brushless Villain but lost interest in the project and sold it before putting these to use. They've just been sitting around...

    +1, you should hear 1/8th scale electrics! Metal-on-metal noise is normal. I run a Jato spur on my Rustler and I can't tell any difference between that and 48p.
