    Same here. If the wheel nut comes loose it will take the hex on the rim with it too.

    Really ticked me off because it was a brand new set of gladiators. However I was able to fix the rim with some...

    If they are CVD type shafts, then no, they'll be too short.

    If they are sliders they should work, but it sounds like you have some kind of CVDs.

    You can get a nice set of HD shafts for about 15...

    I've also got their sealed diff and shock tower and they are all real nice parts. They replaced the shock tower for me for free (minus shipping) when one of the screws...

    Another option is to use STRC 1 toe hubs, and just flip the L & R sides around. That way you'll get 2 toe in on each side. 3 is good for offroad, but since I do a lot of driving on pavement I...

    I've got three sets of the STRC hexes and they've been great so far.

    The stock plastic ones aren't too bad, as I've never managed to strip one. However they can be a pain to take off sometimes,...

    You need the short turnbuckles for the camber links

    These are the alum ones but you get the idea, the top ones are the ones you need.

    I think you'll be good. 5576 is the rear for the Jato, which is the same offset rim as the electric front.

    So the screws are threading into the motor plate? That's all I can think of because the screws for the vxl and castle motor are interchangeable. Pretty much any 2.5mm hex screw will work though as...

    Nice, Integy makes a lot of crappy stuff, but that top plate is awesome. I have them on two of my Rustlers currently. Along with an aluminum bulkhead and tower it adds a nice amount of weight to the...

    Maybe pick up some Proline front arms too if you're going to run buggy tires. It will make it more stable and traction roll less.

    I ran buggy wheels also for a while with the standard length front...

    It is, running the older vxl 2 pole on 4s is a bad idea. I'm not sure but I think the newer ones are kevlar wrapped like the Castle motors so it should be able to withstand the higher RPM.

    Well, if he bought it 2 years ago it's the older 2 pole motor and ESC, which the MMP/3800 would be quite an improvement over.

    Yet!!! Exactly :lol: The stock shafts just do not hold up on 3s.

    You must be geared pretty conservatively then. I'm a bit of a speed freak so I like to gear mine for a top end of around 60 or so on 3s. After a 5000mah pack the 4600 will be well above 160...

    For your budget one of Sidewinder combos is your best bet. Out of the three motor choices I prefer the 3800kv over the 4600 and 5700kv motors. More torque, and it runs very cool in a light 2wd like...

    Yeah, go with fronts if you don't have any width restrictions. That's what I'm doing. RPM compensating arms plus front offset rims all around.

    Charging at 6 amps isn't going to help. Charging a 5000mah battery at 1c shouldn't take 1.5 hours to begin with. Even my Traxxas Ezpeak will charge a 5000mah lipo in about 45 minutes.

    I'd get the G Loc 2.8's if possible. They're better than any of those 2.2 tires. Good tread life, and they don't balloon as much as regular road tires.
