    It's better to snap an a-arm than the front bulkhead. Aluminum just transfer the shock to somewhere else, and doesn't have the flex that plastic does. RPM all the way. I've punished mine, and haven't...

    Yeah it really sounds like what the slipper is designed to do. Maybe try tightening it up, just for a couple comparison runs.

    Why not just call traxxas support? I'd be surprised if they didn't replace the motor for you.

    Start with a 2S lipo. The mah refers to how long the battery lasts. A 5000mah would be a great starting point. Trust me, you won't want to use your old batteries again. The C rating on the battery...

    Here's how I did mine on a slash body. Not pretty, but it works. Just apply the drywall tape directly on the bottom of the body, and rub the shoe goo over the tape with your fingers. Use rubber...

    Thanks guys. I do like the batteries, but I wish the wires were factory attached. I'll start disconnecting the balance wire and taping the port. Good advice.

    Battery question

    When you guys drive, do you leave the center balance port plugged in (I know they are attached on a lot of lipos)? They keep getting mangled, and I had one break off inside the battery today. I'm...

    Glads?

    For general bashing, Im leaning towards getting the proline gladiators for our rusty. I have trenchers on another RC and love them, but they don't appear to be available in rustler sizes? also, I'm...

    Yeah I get you too. If your LHS didn't give you any warnings about running 3S, they did a disservice to you. It's not a slash problem, it is an issue with unreasonable expectations set by your LHS....

    What are you referring to as normal use? I know that if I rode my mountain bike the way I drive my slash, first of all, I would be dead. Second, my bike would be toast. And $60 for shocks on a...

    As long as you stay on 2S, bash away with the CD. No major maintenance issues. Eventually you will start to play with different weights of diff fluid to control power transfer between the front and...

    Thanks guys! I'm glad they have a steel rebuild kit. If something fails down the road, I'd rather it be my spur. I'm just glad it wasn't my gosh-danger! :) Anyone know how much grease I should use?
