    I haven't looked into the new 2.0 version but on the older version the steering linkage on those left a little to be desired. Apparently the linkage flexes and there's two schools of thought on the...

    Traxxas has instructions available on their website for the telemetry and the sensors. The black loop gets wrapped around the engine at the head. The black and red wires that are cut I believe go to...

    If you "push down" on the truck compressing the suspension you're not moving the truck forwards or backwards so the gears won't move. If you push the truck forwards or backwards the spur gear on the...

    Congrats on the purchase! No idea on the engine but can shed some light on the Rx pack situation. Alkaline AA batteries are 1.5v each, so a 4 AA holder is 6 volts with alkalines in it. Now...

    This is kind of a pet peeve of mine but, why do people take funky angle pics of rc cars? Especially when they're looking for an ID on it? Normal top down pics that show the whole vehicle are most...

    If you go to the parts lookup on Redcat's website and find the pinion and spur they're mod .6 pitch. I believe Robinson Racing has some mod .6 pinions. I forget the exact order of largest to smallest...

    I assume the body you're talking about is the "Killerbody 1/7" bodies made for the Traxxas XO1? If so they look really cool but there are two other issues besides wheelbase to contend with. First is...

    I'm not 100% positive on the number but most forums require 10 posts before you can posts links. All the spam bot posts I've seen have a post count less than 10. So yeah eventually the links could...

    Just a heads up on the pinion and spur gears. That Redcat model uses mod .6 pitch gears. If you tried using the far more common mod.8 or 32 pitch gears they may have seemed to match up but if you...

    For the size of your truggy a 540 would be fine as well. Like a prop on a plane you just want to make sure it's geared right so the motor can handle the load. A 4 pole 540 would be enough as long as...

    The original MMM went up to V5 or V6 but Castle never really publicized the updates beyond V3 and it's hard to tell the difference unless you have both opened up side by side. The original MMM has...

    Going brushless and with a bigger 550 size motor definitely puts you on the right track. Lower kv does have more torque all things being equal, but motor size has more effect on torque. And your Kv...

    For a vehicle that weighs as much as an Emaxx I normally would say 4s minimum. Voltage equals power and heavier vehicles need more of it. But since the Diablo is really a 2 pole 550 motor with a high...
