8.4v nihm will work fine and give you a nice boost. This is a great pack for those that don't have a lipo charger or aren't ready for their kids to run into curbs with a 2s lipo pack

I have the Monsoon XTR, so I can't compare exactly but off road, grass, dirt, or anything else is handled well by this platform. It almost has the clearance of a monster truck with the handling of a...

Honestly I can't imagine it being more durable than the XTE line by those pics. Yes the dual steering servos are a nice Traxxas touch but unless the rest of it is made up of some new magic materials...

They took the blanket off the pic today. It looks pretty cool, but most likely a cheaper chassis setup. It's hard to tell, no body off pics. You can see the lack of sway bars from the XTR/XTE...

Yes, the stub axle is what the end of the dogbone goes into. The Volcano stubs are longer than the Tornado. Also, do some research on the wheels you buy. Most beadlock rims are just for show, they...

I agree, Redcat has all the price range bases covered already. My Monsoon XTR is a great truggy for the price, but could be a bit tougher. If it were just a bit more durable it could justify a...

I was reading about it the other night on their site. Very disappointing that they covered it up in a blanket. So far, it seems their biggest selling point is its size. I believe they say...

Your batteries must not be getting fully charged. The smaller one should last 12-15 minutes depending on how you're running. The bigger one probably 20-23 minutes

2.2 size wheels with monster truck tires or 2.8 size wheels with buggy tires. Buggy sidewalls are shorter which allows a larger wheel, gives it more of a low profile look. The monster truck 2.2...

Bring an oven up to 350 degrees. Turn it off and put your wheels and tires in on a cookie sheet for 10-12 minutes. The tires will pop right off.

If your thinking of the Hpi pulse, I would look into the Hpi ds8. It's their nitro version of the Vorza which is an all out battle tank. The pulse is lighter, which would be better for racing, but...
