    They have the same 2.72 reduction ratio and the plastic idler and spur ring gears can be upgraded to make it all steel.

    There won't be a motor that's both good for bashing on 3S and good for racing on 2S. The best for 3S bashing will be heavy, long can, high torque motors with a relatively low KV. None of these...

    This is it and will do the job provided it's not for high current use. With a vintage motor you'll be fine.

    Thank you Rag6 for restoring balance to the universe. I've also used the Protrac towers in my LCG Slash for the past 4 years. Love the rear but the front's a bit flexy although I guess it's stiff...

    Er...I'm pretty sure their selling point is being more durable, not more flexible. That wouldn't really work as a selling point.

    Unless they've changed their design in the last few years (which I...

    The spur gear is an AE one, not Traxxas. Either 48P from RC10 electric vehicles or 32P that I use from nitro ones.

    Part numbers are listed on several few old threads like this one at post #29.

    That 's true for their caster blocks but the RPM shock towers are appreciably more rigid than the stock Traxxas ones.

    The benefits of less flexible towers are better, more consistent handling PLUS...

    I'm a major fan of that AE slipper conversion - very smooth and a great traction control aid on a loose track when set right. I run it with a 54T 32P spur gear from the RC10 GT2.

    For racing I would take the Castle 4600 over the Velineon as it is more responsive, much lighter and yet still has a bit more power. It makes a wicked noise too!

    If you're set on getting a Castle motor and using it on a track I would strongly recommend you get the smaller 1406 series 4600 motor and not the 1410 3800 motor. I've had both motors for over 4...

    I don't like punch control as it creates a laggy feel to the throttle. If you want to tone down the motor use the torque limiting feature in the Castlelink software.

    That's a great spec servo for a bashing rig, especially if you're running offroad.

    The stock 2075 servo is also rated at 0.17s but it only has 125oz of torque. A servo's speed rating is the time...

    The 1257TG is absurdly fast as it's a geared up version of the already rapid 1258TG - it trades some torque for a bit more speed. It's a go to servo for 2WD buggy racing round here. Hopefully your...

    For MT build go Slash, for speed build go Rustler. The XL-5 powered Slash has the advantage over the Rustler of coming with full hex hardware and wheel bearings (not bushings).
