    The only ones I've seen are dual 10th scale SCT systems, and they did it just for the fun of the build. It has no advantages over a single 8th scale setup.

    Two 8th scale systems would break the...

    Show goo and drywall tape is meant to be more for fixing damaged bodies. Large cracks are easily fixed with it. I wouldn't use it to protect and reinforce an entire body though.

    With the xl5 brushed system, you'll want to gear down. Get a smaller pinion gear. Everything else will be fine. You only need to look at different driveshafts if you're running a brushless system....

    I wouldn't. I'd convert the p4de to a monster truck slash before I went emaxx.

    If I was for sure going to go larger, I'd pick the e-revo, summit, or xmaxx first.

    The Summit is the exact vehicle you're looking for. I've had one for years now, and it's still my favorite. I beat the crap out of it. Water, mud, snow, it just takes it and wants more.

    Sounds like the velineon system is the way to go. I'd imagine that your LHS should be willing to install it for you as well, or at least help you with the install.

    Thread should be moved to the appropriate section, instead of e-revo section.

    I'd recommend either the velineon brushless system, or the castle sidewinder SCT system. Both would give you all the...

    I wash with a water hose sprayer and simple green. Then, dry and clear tight areas (like bearings) with an air compressor. Let it dry upside down afterwards, preferably in the sun. Works great,...

    Yes, it's a good setup. However, it's heavy, and the motor prefers a 4s battery, which is also heavier. Heavier leads to more breakage.

    If you can find just the sidewinder 8 ESC, and pair it...

    +1. It don't crawl, not even a little bit. :). Trade for something with 4wd and good suspension travel.

    Sway bars for the win. That's the best general option to start removing body roll.

    If you run primarily off-road, like in ball fields, consider a set of pro-line badlands SC. They'll dig hard...

    Go for it, why not. This is just a small mod. No, it's not a best practice, but who cares. Experimentation is fun and educational, as long as you're willing fix what you break. :)

    Slash LCG MT build (diff question)

    I prefer the xl-5 diffs for every use except speed runs. The vxl diffs are just geared too high. There's lots more usable gearing options with the xl-5 diffs, especially in monster truck applications...

    It'd look cool, but it'd be beyond overkill for the summit. A 4274-sized motor, like the castle 1515 2200kv, is already overkill enough. I figure you'd get tired of it after a run or two. You'd...

    The more off-the-line burst power you want, the more the rustler will lose straight-line traction. I'd use a small lock-washer on the differential shaft to tighten it up some. Or, just lock it up...

    The castle 2650 is my favorite overpowered motor for the slash. It works great on 3s, doesn't completely overpower the truck, and keeps weight down (which the slash loves).

    I run a sidewinder 8 ESC and a leopard 4065 1800kv motor on 4s in mine right now. It's great, and doesn't blow out the drivetrain like a castle 1515 motor would. Nothing gets hot. I don't even have...

    3.8 trenchers? I'd consider converting to a slash 4x4 monster truck if you're using tires that large. Then, you have a large selection of short course and 8th scale monster truck bodies available.

    I made something very similar from 1.5mm steel. I used it as low-centered extra weight for speed runs. I adhered it with a thin layer of shoe goo.

    Motor mount, motor mount bearing, and differential outdrive bearings. I doubt your issue has anything to do with the chassis itself, unless it's cracked somewhere.
