    I know you're running the Mamba system, but for my Tekin, I never let my temps exceed an indicated 160*, which is 4 leds. Sounds like you're running conservatively as well, which is great to hear.

    I'd expect going to 20t would lead to slightly lower run times, but perhaps not appreciably so. It's fun to find that balance between equalizing ESC and motor temps, and balancing those temps with...

    Have you read the manual with respect to how to use the TQi and recalibrate the EVX-2? My guess is this is solely a setup concern, requiring simply that you ensure the electronics are set up...

    What motor are you running? When I had a Tekin T8 2000kv motor, 20t was a good pinion in general, but having swapped down to a 1700kv motor 20t is a little short, particularly on NiMH cells. I...

    The 2-speed only adjusts the first, lower internal ratio; the high speed gearset maintains the original ratio so top speed is identical. I really like it, as it has the 'fun' factor of having a...

    Increasingly I'm thinking I'll accept the new standards, get a set of 3.8" beadlocks, and get the Shockwaves.

    While there are less expensive routes, I love my Tekin RX-8. I had an original with a 2000kV truggy motor, but burned it up when driving through heavy grass on 6s. Got the Gen2 speed control and a...

    This is the problem I've faced recently. I bought two sets of Masher 3.2" tires two years ago and they're wearing out, and don't have many 3.2" alternatives. Losi and HPI have some options, as do...

    I love my Masher 2000 3.2"s and would expect the tread performs very well in 3.8". Good longevity even on the street, great traction on multiple surface types, and it looks great. I don't have...

    Big bore shocks were developed to increase the volume of fluid in the body to make damping more consistent; standard volume shocks do not "make the dampening much less".

    Awesome! I love seeing 3906s in such nice condition.

    Where did you source brushes and springs? It seems like brushed stuff has disappeared.
