    traxxas is to the RC world like peanut butter and jelly...never the best but always good and easy to get.

    if you have to wait 5-10 minutes before it will start again after stalling, it could be a bad ignition coil. I know I had a Volvo once that would start and run fine until it got warmed up and then...

    where have you seen the price for the redcat? I saw the price on their website but that is MSRP and it will be cheaper anywhere else. On their site a 1/10 brushed is $200ish but they are $130-$150...

    tried to find other tires to put on my 9115 truck. Turns out that 1/12 scale monster truck that is 2wd doesn't handle very well :(

    Worked on my backyard track some.

    ive wondered often why lap timing systems are so crazy expensive. Even just a transponder is a good chunk of change. We have cheap lipos, brushless motors, 2.4ghz radios...yet no one offers a...

    the board Im using is 1/2'' thick, so it doesn't upset the car much more than any other bump you would have on a race track. I may bevel the edges of the board, which would lessen how much it upsets...

    most ESC's that say they can handle down to a 12t are referring to a 550 12t...which somehow is the equivilant to a 15t 540. I assume this has to do with both drawing the same amperage (give or...

    I cant be sure from the pics, but I suspect its based on the 1/8 rockslide or maybe its the same axles as the 1/5 exceed. But im leaning toward it being the rockslide since it has 4ws.

    the only place id put aftermarket alloy is in the shock towers. the stock ones are metal, but very thin and will bend. The upgrade ones are 2-3 times thicker.

    sometimes though, if it works good, why change it?
    I mean, traxxas has hardly changed the bandit, stampede, rustler in 15 years!

    sadly, performance isn't much better. first, it lacks torque to do good 360 spins. If its a smooth or flat surface its fine, but sand/dirt/lawn it...

    I know a Tamiya lunchbox is really simple. My only concern with kits like it are that many of the screws are self tapping (into plastic parts) so it can require some strength.

    But a kit like the...

    I drove it for a few seconds before putting the battery on the charger. The battery didn't have enough juice for wheelies or 360 spins, but it did indeed get up to 9mph.
