when you turn it down only do it a 1/8 at a time. so tight it all the way then turn it 1/8 and then test it and then another 1/8 until you notice no change

New to the electric side of the hobby and just wondering what are the acceptable temp ranges for the vxl-3s in the rustler and the temp ranges for the velinion 3500 ?  Sorry if its been mentioned before but this is a rather long thread to catch up on.

(Read below about this one above)

Took me less than 60 seconds......google

This one might be perfect fit? 2.5 x 6 inches?

The other thing you could do is.....print a pic you like on paper....apply it using silicone. I onow it works for power wheels bodies. Don't ask me how...but it does work...I tried it once on my daughters jeep!
The link is the first one posted above.....have fun!
