Check and tighten screws every time you put it to bed, along with after run oil in the engine and setting it to bottom dead center while its still warm [&o]

about the dogbones doing that to your drive cups, mine did the same thing, but you can do this to keep them from being so lose.

Has anyone noticed this problem on the Volcano (maybe it's just the Electric and STX). If you tighten the wheels too much, it's hard to turn them? How do I fix this? Also, mine does the same thing as in [link=http://youtube.com/watch?v=yvtUQ8sWPvQ]this[/link] video. How do I fix this?

Thanks

If a screw comes out once it is probably going to happen again. Put blue Loctite on them.

put silly putty or play dough in the rear diffs, this will make it posi traction in the rear, put a smaller clutch bell, stock is a 17 tooth, i dont think you can go smaller than a 13 tooth, sh .18 engine, use the erp and you get it for less than $50

What is the smallest pinion gear that will fit in the volcano epx? I'm trying to get a little more torque out of my brushless (some people are probably thinking how I could possibly want more torque than that).
