    For those big jumps you'd probably be better off with heavier shock fluid and/or a single hole piston, IMO. If you go too stiff on the springs it will bounce and that's worse than a little chassis...

    Johnh2005, did you get a chance to work on the diff? I'm curious if you were able to free it up and if it was just the grease.

    I killed mine in about 10 packs and that was with a proper break in. I'm glad yours is holding up better than mine did although the Rustler is a lot more fun with a brushless motor, IMO. I'm not...

    You may have over-tightened, or not equally tightened, the 4 screws that attach the ring gear (part 6879 on the diagram) to the diff cup. You just want to snug them up working crosswise.

    Google search "scotch adhesive putty", or "Elmer's Tac 'N Stik". I've seen the Scotch putty at Target. It shouldn't be too hard to find.

    LHS is Local Hobby Shop. Just buy the tires premounted. Gluing tires to wheels, while not all that hard to do, is something I would put off for now if I were you. Just have fun and drive your Rustler!

    I think the only thing you should do out of the box is replace the front bumper that comes on the truck. I like the RPM front bumper, others like the T-Bone. Either is a good inexpensive upgrade,...

    There is at least a couple of ebay sellers auctioning fake King Headz mounts so be careful there. I ended up with one of the fakes. I'd buy direct from King Headz next time.

    And the thread will likely be locked since no "this vs. that" is allowed on the Traxxas forum. Ultimate RC has pretty good, active forum and would be a better place to ask the question.

    Maybe the MMP internal BEC is the cause? I've heard comments that the MMP internal BEC isn't the best one out there. Do you have another servo you could try or an external BEC?
