    Are you sure you didn't use a weedwhacker motor in that?

    Nah, really tho, it looked pretty fast. You could make it look even faster if you sped up the vid like you did the first half of the vid. :)

    The 3500 is an inexpensive, tough, powerhouse of a motor and is often underestimated. In comparison to a 4pole is kinda like apples to oranges. I really like mine. I feel confident gearing my 1/16 to...

    The problem I ran into using the stock brushed mount is the cast material likes to strip very easy. I've run the stock brushless motor plate with no issues. There is, however, a bit of flex to it...

    What would be the ultimate X0-1?

    I realize they are ultimate in their own right, but what would it take to make it truly the baddest it could be? I ask for very real reasons too. When I get bored with my 1/16 scales and want to go...

    That's a pretty good idea. I might adapt this to my speedster. Did you consider just using the same type rockers as the rear? All 4 the same size all the away around.

    What Jimmie said about toe. TRUE.

    To the OP, when you use the word "Violently" it almost sounds like a bearing is bad and only noticeable at high speed. Otherwise I would say check your rear...
