    Yep, that sounds about right for run time. Shy of five minutes perhaps. But if it is a system that draws a lot of power, that could account for the five minutes if you were heavy on the throttle....

    It could be that the ESC "forgot" it's throttle end points. Re-calibrating the transmitter/ESC throttle range by doing the initial ESC calibration would be my first thought. (The instructions for...

    Try uploading that image again. All we can see here is a link to your hard drive.

    Ha ha ha....the title and description cracked me up! (oh, I made a little pun there myself, ha!)

    Has anyone confirmed that with Duratrax or Hobbico? Man, how long have they had that car in production? Must be some kind of record.
    But it is kind of a dated platform. Never did like the...

    Nice truck! Ditch the Tamiya plugs, tho. They're crap.

    So what's the GF's beef? Spending too much money on it rather than on her? Spending more time with it than her? Or does she just think...

    I'll be darned! Last I'd heard about Rescue, after it had been closed down by someone who didn't like the noise, and who had influence with the County, was that it would only be open to "club...

    I'd disagree with the assessment of Arrma as a "cheapie" brand. They don't seem to be much different than some other Horizon Hobby brands. I would place them above Redcat. But that's based on what...

    So where is that track you're running on in that vid? Is that Rescue? How did you get the whole place to yourself?

    The FRAME will weigh 8.5lbs?? Or is that the projected weight of the whole car?
    Your budget isn't going to allow you to even buy a motor system big enough to move that kind of weight. Custom builds...

    There is a "For Sale" forum here somewhere. You could post it there. You got real RC guys here, and stuff does sell. But eBay works too.

    Hi!
    Um...help with what, exactly? You didn't say. Are you looking to update it? Just get it working? Sell it?

    Hey Jossef, welcome back. Usually the Tx/Rx is already bound from the factory. However, if you power it all up and nothing works....then you know what you have to do. :) What you probably will...

    Velineon systems are fine, but for the Rustler, a little over-powered, and certainly over-priced. That $80 HW system will do you just fine. Exactly what I have in my Evader (same as Rustler).

    It matters a lot. Full stop.

    You need an iron with at least 40 Watts, an a tip with enough mass to solder quickly, but small enough to work on the smaller things we work on.

    You may be able to...

    Have you Googled XMODS to see if there are specific forums for them? I had to Google them, as I'm not familiar with them. You sure they aren't "toy-grade" RCs?

    Castle over VXL. But have you looked at any of the HobbyWing offerings? For a 2wd you wouldn't need a big-***** motor. HW makes a SCT combo. And you get the programming card WITH it, not a $25...
