I'd think that on 3s it would be a bit sluggish, this is a heavy vehicle. Go 4s and it should be just right.

Your rear CVDs pop out? I've never had that happen, with loads of running. That seems really odd to me.

Whats up eman? The 801xt in my pic is setup for drag racing on the street...i'll probably change out the motor to a 2250kv with a 6s probably a 20t pinion..i think that will do the trick...as far as the cvd issue might have to look into a longer cvd

Thing is, I've never heard of anyone with CVDs popping out, nor are mine even close to doing so.

Do you have the (original) longer arms and CVDs, or the short arm/CVD set?

Somebody on another site had issues with their CVD's and it turns out they were too short because they received the wrong ones. Are your CVD's resting halfway into the drive cups on both the chassis and wheel side?
