    The arm guards are kind of like skid plates for the shocks. So in a crash or when rocks are kicked up at the shocks, they have to go past the arm guards first. You can do a search for them with the...

    I think to get the amount of movement in the video you would need to be running really soft springs or maybe no springs at at all. Like checking things out with the spring retainers removed.

    I would also get the stampede arm guards. I broke some parts on proloine shocks w/o them. No problems sincfe then.

    I cut my screen mesh to fit while on the car. Used hot glue to secure the Velcro to the screen. If you want to do a trial and error method you can try cutting paper and tape in place. I eventual...

    I sometimes run my truck on a highschool dirt oval. With some of the changes in traction around the corner I would loose control of the car. It is well under control now. It responds faster than I...

    I have a d'box and my experience is it boots up correctly about 90% of the time with the transmitter turned on first. My experience is zero percent if the car is turned on first. If it doesn't boot...

    if you use the clips from the 1/16 slash you get a little more room to install the clips. The clips are smaller and a little more difficult to handle. I have actually filed the washers a little bit...

    I would get the Stampede arm guards to protect the shocks - I have not bent or broke a shock since installing them. I used a 5 gallon plastic paint barrel with cut-outs to clear the wheels and...

    They are different. The backs don't protrude as far forward near the center of the car - clearing the chassis. The fronts are more tapered near the wheels - they provide more clearance for turning...

    Ultimates in good condition seem to go pretty quickly at about the $300 dollar point. You could probably get some more as you have a few upgrades from there. I have seen people asking over $400 for...

    I used an exacto knife to do some minor cuts to get a couple more degrees out of the servo. Afterwords i thought they may have it contacting to prevent the servo from overextending in a crash. I...

    I think I have seen people use a different threaded rod - one that does not have the large diameter in the middle or grind the existing rod to fit - you can turn the rod 180 degrees to get good...

    I started out not really breaking anything - training mode on the ESC. Then graduated to 2S LiPOs and broke a few things. It is now upgraded to the point where it seems pretty bullet proof for the...

    With the ESC working with the green light on, the ESC has a low voltage cut-out. The low voltage cu-out protects LiPO batteries from getting dischaarged too much and damaged. If LiPO's become...

    I think it depends on where or what you want to do with it.

    LIPO's & charger provide more speed & more run time - I reccomend you master 2S before moving to a 3S or just stick with a 2S.

    With the proline powerstrokes would bottom the chassis on what I would call moderate hits. I may have had this going on with the stock shocks also.

    On some bumps, when the rear bottomed out, it...

    I think in the Slayden thread, he reccomends not filling the front and rear diffs too much. Less can be better as in your automobile engine, or in the diffs in your car are not "full" of oil.

    I think I would run low weight diff oil for high speed runs. Since the car is geared up, your torque at the wheels is reduced, and since you are on pavement, traction should be good. A Low eight...
