    I'm just popping in to back this up. I've been pleasantly surprised how well my HW SCT Pro combo (4000kv in my case) has held up. I use it in my Tekno race truck and it doesn't break a sweat, at my...

    Ugh, the painful memories of my stock axles. Being cheap is great, but I'd love to get through a 3s pack without having to grab the vehicle and fix it several times. On my 4065 2700kv Leopard motor I...

    Our RC parts primarily rely on open air-flow to stay cool, so ambient temps will make a big impact. It's brutal here in the summer (hits 35c+ on some days) and I have to drive very differently.

    Honestly the stock horn holds up fine, only time I've broken them is when I used the STRC crank and the saver got locked up with dirt. Just keep some spares on hand.

    It won't turn your RC into a missile, it's more of a tool to tune how your motor acts and squeeze every little bit of go out of it. At the local race track the 2wd buggy drivers seem to notice it...
