    I am definitely not a fan of stainless steel screws. SS is very soft and strips easily with use. If it were me, I would stick with the black oxide screws that Traxxas now uses. After cleaning, I...

    Why did you replace the idler gear? It sounds like the diff housing teeth are damaged to me. Or, there is something else in the tranny or diff damaged. It's hard to tell from a video though.

    Converting a Pede to a Slash isn't hard, but it takes an hour or two to convert them back and forth. It'll be cheaper in the long run to buy a used or new roller though. They do share parts, but...

    CM36 series motors are 2 pole. 1406 & 1410 series motors are 4 pole. 4 pole motors have more torque than the 2 poles.

    A 7700 kv motor will burn up in no time in the heavy Slash. Even the 5700 gets too hot. I think the best 2 pole motor is the 4300 on 2 or 3S lipo. Or, go to the 3800 kv 4 pole motor.
