Dude, make sure and check, but there is a certain firmware that could hurt your motor if it's 4 or 6 pole. See link - http://www.hobbywing.com/product_show.asp?id=218
Dude, blue locktite. It works great and is easy to get off if needed.
Great choice!! I have one that am running 3s and my 6 yr old daughter loves it. I started her out on training mode, now she is running full power. Super tough truck so I don't worry if she crashes...
Dude, 3s is more voltage which
= more power
= more heat
= more breaking
I would highly suggest getting a fan for motor and esc, or plan on upgrading your esc and motor.
Update boys....new trechers, blue locktite still noticed some wobble. I took the wheel off, hex off, popped out the bearings and they were completely shot. They literally were in pieces when I took...
So, I'm going to show some ignorance in terminology, but aluminum hexes? Is that something additional to the hexes wheel hexes that come on my MIPs? I do have the new ones with the grub screw by...
Need some advise here all. I just got some trenchers on desperados. I have probably 3 runs on them and the passengers rear wheel has already stripped. I check tightness of wheel nuts before each...
I got the KH and love it so far. The bigger bearing is a great selling point.
Dude, check out Dusty Motors shroud cover. http://www.ebay.com/itm/Shroud-Cover-for-Traxxas-Stampede-4X4-VXL-by-Dusty-Motors-/140921826661?pt=UK_ToysGames_RadioControlled_JN&hash=item20cf986d65
Lipo for sure!! My buddy just upgraded his brushed to brushless and 2s. Way faster than the brushed system and he gets longer run times.
SPC batteries are awesome. It was my first 3s and I have plans to buy many more soon.
I used blue on my pinion and red on my MIP's
Too much and I haven't even bought new tires or body yet. Sheesh! I'm probably sittin a little over a grand.
Dude, can't really comment on much here, but I can tell you that I run my 3s Lipos like crazy in the water / snow. I have done some research and also had a fellow member on here stat that Lipos are...
Well today was the day. I finally broke my rear driveshaft. I have been running 3s on stock for almost 2 months. Luckily I have been listening to all the smart guys here on the forum and had some...
Awesome info. Thanks.
Yeah should work. Check to make sure connector is solid and not arching.
Ok guys, I'm pretty confused on motors.:confused:
I see a lot of posts about different KV ratings and "pole". Help me understand since i'm a noob.
What's the KV correlate to?
Why does less KV...
Mine popped also. Got the alum caps and no problems since.
What wt oil are you putting in? Just wondering. I put in 45wt and it's noticeably stiffer, not in a bad way.
What's the "C" rating on the battery. Some people will say it doesn't matter, but I had a boat load of problems with a 20C. Swapped it out for a 30C and it's worked perfectly every since.

or even better this one:
Found this, but not sure if 2wd slash is same as 2wd Pede. Just happen to be looking for bodies myself....
Dude, welcome to the family. You got a great truck!!
There are many other posts on here about the rubbing issue.
To put it simply, there are two fixes.
1) Take the servo apart and re-align
