    Thanks, I didn't know Jato springs were the same diameter!

    Does that just get me the ability to buy softer springs... or are Jato springs measured a different way? (i.e. do I still have to guess...
  2. E-Revo/Summit and Stampede/Slash spring rates measured entirely differently?

    I've got 2 sets of shocks, mounted in the same holes on the same truck: one takes the narrower Stampede/Slash/Rustler sized springs... and the other takes the wider E-Revo/Summit sized springs. I...

    I went with the lower KV sensored Tacon. On 3s I was having to run the smallest pinions and I'm hoping this will let me move to some larger ones that run smoother... and I wanted the better low-speed...

    Hmmm... I also tried Talons on the front and Badlands on the rear, and steering was a bit worse than with the ribs up front. But you know what did work? Badlands on the front and Talons on the rear!...

    I made a new wood mount that holds my helmetcam between the front and rear shock towers. This is a short test video of me driving through a small local park, from the view of the Pede:

    I am just getting back into RC after about 15 years away from the hobby, and bought this VXL used. Now I wish I had thought to look for a forum for the truck before buying the tires, but oh well,...
  11. Don't know what I was thinking... (Rustler fronts on a VXL Pede)

    I had hoped putting Rustler ribs on the front of my VXL would help with the understeer... and that the lower profile would lean the Pede forward...
