    Bec

    Glad to help. I have a bunch of small 2200uf caps, which I combine to make different size capacitor groups. For example, I have one that's four 2200uf caps side-by-side, wrapped tight and soldered in...

    Also consider a capacitor / glitch buster for the BEC too. It may be all you need. It'll smooth out power draw from the BEC, so you don't get the brownouts. Don't need to program it either.

    Sv3 is plenty powerful for the 4600 castle motor. It's my pick for best all-around combo for it and most of traxxas 1/10 2wd trucks.

    1st Traxxas

    I'd just start with an LCG chassis kit from traxxas and go from there. If everyone else at the track is running brushless systems, then get one of those too.

    After that, the common break points on...

    You're gonna have to cut the back wall out of the battery tray to for that longer battery. It's a good mod to do anyways. Fill the remaining space with a piece of foam or something soft.

    17mm Wheel & Tire Option's ( help me out )

    Most 17mm 3.8 monster truck tires are going to be huge on that slash chassis. Also, the track isn't very wide, so you'd need a large offset wheel. Otherwise they'll rub the chassis and you'll have to...

    Heavier, and 4wd. Motor and esc have to work harder. That's the reason. Gear down, go with 2s lipo, or get a larger motor/esc combo.

    The esc likely does not have low voltage protection built-in, so I'd recommend looking at a 6-cell or 7-cell NiMH battery. Traxxas' batteries are still good.

    If you want to use lipo batteries,...

    The 2200 stock motor is about as large as the truck can really handle without significant drivetrain upgrades. The castle 1717 motor from the XO-1 will destroy the stock diffs, tires, and driveshafts.

    A lost tooth, or a loose mesh on the diff ring/pinion or spider gears would cause that. Perhaps the diff casing screws are loose, causing it to pull apart a little and loosen the mesh.

    I run a castle sidewinder sct/3800 system. Works great. The brushed p4dr has lower-geared differentials, so it won't be as fast as the VXL version if you use the same pinion gear on the motor.
