    But the best way to prevent too much stress on the drivetrain is to set the slipper properly.
    I've been bashing with the stock driveshafts, and telluride diffs for a couple days. Slipper 1/4 turn from tight.. i mostly run it on low traction sand/dirt. That's most likely why things arent breaking. Trying to wait to swap my diffs and driveshafts untill my diff fluid gets delivered.

    The robinson racing spur and slipper came with a metal bearing, i ordered a yeah racing mount a while ago.. but it's coming from hong kong!


    Sigh... couldnt find the front tekno's on amazon that were eligible for prime.


    Got a new chassis, wasn't happy with my ugly dremel job on the stock one. May try to get it hydro dipped with a carbon fiber design.

    4s is for my pede, i'm just gonna keep the slash stock for now and use 3s untill the vxl burns out, then i'll switch to my 4 pole castle motor that ran too hot in my pede. it's totally different to drive which is what i wanted.

    Ate up another pinion today.. figured out what my issue was. My slipper had a lot of play and the spur would move. I forgot to put the bearing on the diff side back after switching to the rr metal spur

    Yep, i got them a while ago, they're on in the last few pics. Next up is a shroud and a new servo.. what would you recommend? I've seen a few with specs that look good but the deminsions are a good bit different than the 2075, not sure how to determine if it's a direct fit or not!

    My steering wasnt working very well.. found out the telluride uses plastic instead of actual bearing in the bell crank. Swapped those out and ordered a savox SC-1267SG got a screaming deal, 55 bucks brand new! Also got a castle bec go make sure it gets enough juice.

    Well.. my steering issues are solved. This servo is seriously overkill it turns the wheels like the 2075 did.. when the wheels were off the ground.

    Was a tight fit. The savox is a good bit shorter than the trx servo. Smaller screws and not making them too tight worked.

    Nope, it isn't. I'm not 100% sure but savox makes their waterproof servos blue.

    What are the differences between the Telluride and the Stampede? From Traxxas' pictures they look almost identical except for having different bodies and wheels/tires.
