Good to read. I am running the same Castle system and need to tune it a bit. Maybe look into power the lights directly from the battery.
Just did this a few days ago hooking up my new castle system and its fans. Never a fun feeling when you turn on a new ESC in a new RC and have it not work. :((

Brushed - Maxx 2.8 on Chrome - #6771
VXL - Talon 2.8 on Black Chrome - #3669A
Thanks. I thought about driving it a little bit too before changing it over to brushless so that I would have an idea of the difference between Titan vs. VXL vs. Castle. But with the parts there and...
Brushed - #2056
VXL - #2075
Thanks for the tip! I have seen those in pics but did not know where it came from. :thumbup:
So my 5yo son is ready for his own Stampede but tower was out of stock on all the VXL's. So I am handing my VXL down to him and ordered a Brushed 4x4 and a few extras for me. As pointed out in...
Too much doll play for me :lol: but I love the cage and those tires.
Thank you Danielhr77 and everyone else who contributed to this epic thread. I just did this mod and installed the Traxxas radio in my Mad Torque. The extra channel is being used for rear steering and...
My sons Max-D body from his Monster Jam truck fit on my old, now his, 4x4. The front body mount lines up. We used the rear mount from the MJ-pede on the rear of the shock tower and it fit fine.
I like the blue. I don't like the greasy look. :p
Nice paint scheme.
The 4X4 was/is a huge success. I doubt a complete new model in the same class will be released anytime soon. At best I think a "Ultimate" or "Castle Power" version may come. This is just my opinion...
Great Idea. Instead of Coolant use a TINY bit of Red Line WaterWetter.
Stickers are preference choice. I like the clean simply look. Maybe a couple small well placed stickers in my opinion, in red if you have them.
Just realized my 5300's are 30C, not 20C. :D
Take a look at the the PARTS LIST. It shows "Stampede" for some of the parts. You can also compare it to the Stampede's list.

This is a pretty good price. I will be looking for another 4X4 in a couple months. If I was ready to buy now I would be blowing up your PM box right now.
I have never broke my stock driveshafts..... oh, never mind. I break them all the time too. :o
Looks like the Integy to me. It also looks like a great idea! Nicely done djmaincheese.
Sounds like harmonics at work. This is one of the reasons 1/1 cars have rubber engine mounts. I image the plastic is just doing a better job at insulating and eliminating vibrations then the metal is...
I see what you mean about what the manufacturers consider a proper fit. I have always liked the look of wheels centered in the arches. Most of the bodies do not offer this.
The Monster Jam is my...
