    Thanks for the info. I'm going to go to Hobbytown today and talk to the guys there and see what options I have for the ESC, according to their site, they have a lot of different ESCs. Would an XL-5...

    I was looking at the XL-5 but if the photos are correct, then it wouldn't mount like the old XL-1 because it looks like the mounting points are different. Also would I need a waterproof servo motor...

    Well, I didn't smell anything when it went out just the sporadic throttle and just quit. I guess that's what happens when you are still trying to use tech from the 1990s with batteries from the 21st...

    Well, I think I actually might've fried the ESC tonight...I was running it and towards the end the throttle would be slightly erratic and then it stopped, I let it cool and turned it back on and...

    Thanks for the reply, I actually used a razor blade to cut through the plastic for the axle stubs (yeah, it took a while), the set screws would hit against the bushing housing, I actually used the...

    I think I might've figured it out but I'm running into a problem...I tried to use the screws that came in the package to secure the yoke to the axle stub but it locks up the axle. Did you use the...

    I know I haven't been on in a while, but I finally got the parts to replace the drive axles. I was looking back in the post to what cool was saying about pressing the yokes to the stub axles, I don't...

    Thanks and it's okay, I know I had a lot of questions in that post. I'm on vacation right now, so no working on the truck until I get back, but I can't wait to replace the axles and have some fun...
  16. Thanks for the info, guys. I was thinking of...

    Thanks for the info, guys. I was thinking of going BL because of the waterproof electronics. Since I was thinking of running the truck in slightly damp environments. Also, could the newer waterproof...

    Someone had told me about upgrading the ESC...Is the XL-5 compatible with brushless motors too? I ask because I may upgrade to a brushless motor in the future...I've already had plenty of fun with...
