Questions about Rustler XL5..
Hi everyone. So I recently purchased my first ever RC car and I settled for the Rustler Xl5. I would have gone VXL if I could afford it.. I just have a few questions..
1.) I'm extremely scared to drive it crazy.. I bought it for offroad bashing but I don't know how crazy I can go without it breaking.. do they break easily? Is it alright if they roll? Is loose dirt with alot of dust alright to drive on?
2.) What size of pinion should I use? I was under the impression that the XL5 came stock with the 23t or 19t pinion but I looked at it and it has a 16t? It pops wheelies pretty easy which is nice but I would like some over all higher top speeds. Would buying a 19 or 23t pinion be alright and would it make it noticeably faster? I don't want to use the include 28t for sure for fear of overheating. Or what about using the 16t pinion and included 68t spur?
3.) Do I need to buy some oil to oil the shocks or motor? I believe it has the Titan 12t 550 and I didn't know if they required oil down the road.
Sorry for the long post but I just have so many questions to ask and I'm really excited about this new hobby! Thanks in advance!
