Sounds like a slipper issue.
Sounds like a fun build! Out of all my rigs, the S4x4 is by far the most fun and easiest to work on. The engineering behind how the whole kit fits together is great! I mean you can get the whole...
Waterproof isn't all it's cracked up to be. You're gonna have rusted screws, junk in your diffs, and grime all over. I'd much rather have a nice, powerful, and trustworthy drive train.
I've still got an almost new VXL-3m system left from my clean up. Barely used and never seen temps over 120. It was in my MERV when they first came out for no more than 3 weeks. $70 shipped inside...
Haven't ran mine yet. Been pretty crappy around here lately. Need to glue them also. The Pro Core's seem very stiff which should help with the tires turning into pizza cutters on 5s!
Thanks guys! This body hasn't been ran yet. I bash with my Baja body. It's seen it's share of dirt and sand for sure! She's just looking all sparkly after the rebuild!
Confusion on the thread. The 3m system is still available. Price is $80 shipped inside cntl U.S.
-slipper clutch bearing
-stock a arms
-drive shaft hubs
-stock tires wear quickly
Every kit has it's weaknesses. The S4x4 is great rig for the track and the basher. It has the...
VXL-3S is SOLD!
Just got these finished up. Still need to glue them. Then I've gotta wait for it to dry up around here to go test them out! I also need to put the screws in the center cap. Better pics to come when...
Kruse, your inbox is full.
My bad! Changed!
Both systems are in great working order! Neither lived in the rigs they came in for very long. Prices do not include shipping. Both are negotiable. No trades. Paypal only.

I used to run my NEU 2400 on 6s. Pretty nutty! My current setup is a NEU/Castle 2650 on 5s. Plain insanity! Gotta love the 1/8 scale systems in these rigs!
I cut my down a bit:
Another tire for consideration is the Trencher.
Ya, the MMP with the VXL motor is a good combo.
That was a joke! ^ Sorry! It's the Tamiya modeling rattle can paint for plastic, not the lexan paint for bodies. I believe it was Satin Gold or something like that. About 5-6 light coats gets the job...
Some quick vids here:
Did some quick iPhone vids of the Slash freshly off a rebuild.
Sorry for the mediocre angle. It's tough when all of you got around is your phone and a wallet to prop it up on!
You'll hear a...
Thanks man! Ya, I've got a Neu 2400 and another MMM sitting in a busted tranny EMaxx that's itching for a new home! Looks like the S4x4 may sit a bit if I can find a nice 1/8 buggy roller.
So after almost a 7 month stint of sitting on the work bench with a broke X-duty rear shaft and some sand in a few not so desirable areas, the beast is back!
I spent the evening cleaning out the...
Yup. I'm running the 35 as well.
A 540 would most certainly make it more top heavy. The center of gravity is lower on the Rally's but the motor placement is the same as the Merv. It wouldn't be as drastic, but would still effect...
