    This is my 8 year olds truck so the Nimh is fine for him with the 9 tooth, but I just went to Lipos with my Merv and I love them. Ran a 3s for the first time yesterday and that thing is insane. I...

    Yes, the motor is engaged. I am going to swap pinions and spur gear today to gear it down for use with my Summit tires. I'll spin it then with the motor out and just put some drag on the spur and...

    Okay, so I took the rear dif apart and swapped the ring and pinion since a little dirt got in there and a couple teeth were slightly messed up. Mine was tight, so I didn't add shims. I took the...

    I think that I am glad that they didn't have this one out a few months ago. Is it the same as the 4x4 VXL but with just the different motor and speed controller? I probably would have bought it...

    Are the stock hollow balls plastic? I didn't remember that. If so, I think I'll just get the set of hollow balls like suggested. That saved me some money. I'll also get the RPM arms.

    Mrmerv76, are you saying that replacing the steel hollow balls will get rid of the slop? I am assuming that the balls are okay and that the slop is from the plastic wearing out that the balls insert...
