    I'm not an electronics whiz, but that does make sense.

    I've heard people say that running an external bec will also help the esc run cooler since at that point the esc's only concern is running...

    I wouldn't use wd40. It's just going to make things worse by attracting more dust and dirt.

    The easiest thing to find is probably CRC Electronics cleaner. It's a big red can usually by the auto...

    Maybe try moving them back out and see if that helps.

    I think adjusting the ride height with shock spacers is a better idea. Moving the shock mount in or out on the arm is also going to affect...

    You shouldn't even need the shims. They way I've always done it is just use the grub screw under the arm mount to adjust anti squat.

    That's already too much weight plus you have to realize that the Rustler/Bandit is going to understeer under power. Even a 4wd buggy is going to understeer at those speeds if you're on the throttle....

    I'd get some aluminum hubs and new bearings and make sure the axles are shimmed properly with a couple teflon washers.

    Yeah it took me several speed passes geared 34/25 to get the 1515 hot. Even then I didn't have a temp gun but I'd guess 160°ish. It's plenty of motor for a Rustler considering it has no trouble...

    If you're sticking with brushed, you could always just get another 12t. You can find them on ebay for around 15 bucks.

    Nice job. Glad to hear it's handling a lot better. Definitely makes it more fun to drive when the car reacts the way you want it to.

    Same here. They should just send you an extra one right off the bat, lol. I've managed to break 5 or 6 rear T-bone bumpers and skids. Although it's usually only a problem in cooler weather when it's...

    That's what I'd do. Sure there's no wheels like you said, but it still protects your motor.

    I bet it wouldn't be that hard to fix it either. If you can find some aluminum rod about the same size...

    Castle recommends only running 2s max with that combo. They say 3s max with the sv3 and 1406 motors however.

    I don't see why you couldn't run 3s with the SCT combo in a Rustler though as long as...

    If you want to go brushless for under 100 bucks the Castle sv3 is probably the way to go.

    There's cheaper options like the Hobbywing 60a combos, but if I had to choose between the two I'd go with...

    I'd just get another set of the 6852x shafts. For 20 bucks they are hard to beat if you take price and durability into account.

    I'm surprised you even managed to break one really. Maybe back off...

    I've pretty much just accepted the fact that asphalt and concrete will both eat tires for lunch.

    For me it's a toss up between Condas and G Locs. I'd say G Locs last a little longer, but I've...

    Yes, the 5000, 6500 and 7200mah will fit without any mods.

    I'd still move the ESC mount anyway if you're considering it. The stock location limits your battery choice quite a bit especially if you...

    No, the ones in the link aren't the ones you want. Those are short course tires.

    SPC and SMC lipo are my favorite brands.

    If you're going to stick with 3s any of their 3s packs are good. The SPC 4300mah fits without any mods. The 5000mah and 6500mah hard case will require...

    I can tell just by looking at those that those are really stiff springs!

    They don't list the actual rate, but I wouldn't doubt they are at least double what you'd find on a typical Rustler.
