    Haha, thanks sk8! I love scorpions as well. My Mk3 is still running strong, I just don't spend as much time on here, but I should make an effort to update...Thanks for reviving the thread. :thumbup:...

    The economics of upgrading to DeWalt for $40-50 (when all you want is torque) are clearly in favor. Any mild BL system will set you back at least 200% more than that. I can dump my DeWalt in the...

    Bobandcar, this is by far your best option for tires. If you like to wrench, start taking the front end apart, it might not necessarily be the diff. If you rather just plug and play, then...

    Your temps are not surprising at all, your gear ratio is a bit over what the DeWalt likes (in hot weather). DeWalts do run hotter than other motors. You will also see a bit of improvement once the...

    Not many options as you found out. Custom made is the way to go, but it does mean more $$$$. The Nylint 1/6 scale bodies work great, but they are hard to come by, much lighter than Tonkas. Check ebay...

    Point was that a size label, while important, has little relevance in this case. The MMP is labeled 1/10, yet it runs perfectly fine in heavier (1/8) trucks like the Summit. The actual scale of the...

    You should look at the MMP. Does everything the big brother does, plus it runs sensored motors as well. At a much lesser cost.

    D type shafts are what is needed. If you get a motor with a solid round shaft you will need to flatten a spot out for the grub screw to tighten against. Lots of drill and power tool motors will work,...

    If you want smooth at slow speed it has to be sensored. ESCs that can run sensored motors are not typically waterproof (because of the sensor port), but can be waterproofed at home. The E-Revo BL...

    Small rocks have been known to enter motors and mess them up. Perhaps this happened to you? Hard to say, it's a long shot but, in any case, your truck is only what? two weeks old? Bushing failure is...

    Stock gearing is 14t pinion/68t spur. DeWalts tend to get hotter than normal. From other members testing, 17t pinion is right around the 'sweet spot' for speed/crawling without overheating. Larger...

    Max Amps are excellent batteries, but heavily marketed and hyped, which reflects in the price.
    I believe there is more bang for your battery bucks elsewhere.

    Hard question to answer. So many things...servos, steering assembly, alum diffs and gears, bearings, hex hubs, radio gear and so on...the sky is the limit! (or the bank account in some cases)
