    Below is a link to the tank section. This isn't a computer gaming site though which would probably be more helpful than this rc site. But who knows maybe there's some WOT guys in the tank section.

    Instead of trying to find a longer dog bone you can make one out of the existing dog bone. Simply cut it in half, insert each end into the appropriately sized steel tubing (brake line works well) and...

    Assuming everything is fine with the steering and the front wheels aren't actually changing steering angle, you don't want to use shock tuning to solve this issue. If...

    99% of the radios out there have a channel reverse switch or programming option just for this reason. Reverse the throttle channel, re-center the servo and linkage and you'll be good to go.

    That piece is a one way bearing. If you turn it in one direction it's should spin freely on the shaft. Turn it the other direction and it locks onto the shaft. Put an Allen key through the hole in...

    Redcat's website currently lists model #wp-1040 as the esc that comes with the brushed Volcano. If you look up that esc the description says it has a lipo cutoff and can run 2s max. Check the sticker...

    This is really your first brushless? Never would've guessed. Nice job on the conversion! I love the home brew conversions. In fact I always try to make as many of the parts for my conversions as...

    First check the obvious like the play in the steering components. Tighten up the servo saver if you can as well.

    With full throttle you obviously get more power which is breaking the tires...

    If your TMaxx has the thinner 2.5 shafts then yeah you're going to twist them up especially with 1/8 power.

    Looks like you got everything. The only other difference when Traxxas made the switch from 2.5 to 3.3 is the internal gearing of the transmission. 2.5 used standard ratio while 3.3 got the "Wide"...

    Lipos can be damaged if the voltage goes below 3.0 volts per cell. Since the esc doesn't have LVC you need another way to protect the looks and that's with a low voltage alarm. In extreme cases of...

    While I'm sure the plastic links are bending, twisting and whatever else, you should also look into sway bars. The Yeti XL suffers some serious torque twist with stock electronics on 6s and I'm sure...

    I know it's a factory conversion kit but $195 US is awfully steep. I wonder if the chassis accepts any other conversion kit motor mounts as that would cut the cost by well over half.

    First your esc has a 19t (540 size) motor limit, I'm pretty sure a 12t 550 is equal to about 15t in 540 size. Either way it would be too much for your esc. You could go with another 19t motor but the...
