No. No part of the vxl system will work with 4s batteries
Look on eBay for a LVA. You can get ones for about 3 bucks that work really well and are super easy to use. Also has a digital display.
With the xl5 tx/rx and battery or without?
Integy aluminum tranny case
RPM front and rear tower
RPM front arms
RPM caster blocks
4 dirt hawgs on stock rims (2 @90-95% 2 @85-90%)
2 beat up Jaco foams on their carbon fibre...
Mashers get pretty good grip in snow so long as it isn't deep enough of loose enough that your truck just disappears in it when you put it down.
Definitely more info needed
I was browsing through YouTube earlier today and came across this video.
At the minimum you'll need a set of 14mm hexes since most 3.8 rims are minimum 14mm.
That body's ridiculous! How long did that work of art take?
It's a tight squeeze but it works.
A proper 1.5mm Allen wrench might do the trick as well. Even if it doesn't you NEED one in your toolbox. The one that comes with your truck is pure garbage and will strip te set screws constantly...
You don't need them per se but your pede will look kinda goofy without them.
Cut mashers to fit 2.8" you definitely won't regret it.
Double post, please remove.
He said he had $100 to spend on upgrades yet the radio just listed is $115:confused:.
A cheap decent radio is a flysky FS-gt3b. It's only like 30-40 bucks so that way there's still money left over...
RPM front bumper, front skid, and rear skid are the number one upgrades in my books. Those three parts, especially the first two will save you more money than any other upgrades out there IMO.
Lots of people have done it on here. Open it up and use plasti-dip on it.
Doesn't look like too bad of a set up for $150. Any lower kv motors though?
If you're using an external LVA I'd use one in each battery. They're only like 2-3 bucks so not like it's a hard hit to the wallet.
My suggestion, take you 55 bucks and buy a castle sidewinder instead.
Check and make sure your steering links are even and that one tire doesn't point a little off straight. Pins are also a really good idea to check
Repack for sure. If you can, try and find gear dope. That stuff is ridiculously thick and sticky! Hard to find though as its rather industrial. Heavy duty marine grease is your next best bet.
Most parts are the same between the rustler, bandit, pede, and slash. Some sl4sh and p4de parts are also interchangeable like rear carriers, stub axles and half shafts.
+1 to mike. Match your mah, c rating and number of cycles.
Definitely have to agree with 87 GN. That and I always find premounted wheels always come unglue so you have to glue them yourself anyways.
