Just a thought about deciding between the buggy and your current Revo: It doesn't seem wise to just buy the first interesting vehicle you see. Take your time. Also, it could be possible to get your...

In order to get proper CORR truck proportions, you would need to lengthen the chassis to increase the wheel base and/or shorten the arms to decrease wheel track. Too much work. The 4x4 slash looks...

I had this old iPod sitting around and thought it would be fun to try out some auto benchmarking software designed for full-size vehicles. It uses the ipod's built-in accelerometer to measure the...

Keep in mind the Slash is based off the original Rustler/Stampede designs which are ancient (roughly 10 years?). The suspension, steering, and transmission are the same with minor tweaks. Most R/Cs...

A much more simple and cheap option would be to go with a bigger pinion AND spur. Use a 62t or 68t spur. I was able to fit a 68t 32p spur on my nitro revo conversion using the same chassis and...

The E-Revo chassis is installed and I still have the E-maxx motor plate on the tranny so the motors are mounted pretty far forward. I tried to counteract that a little by sliding the batteries all...

I bought 36t spur and 17t pinion for my 9xl on 4s, it should go 38mph. But I haven't run it yet because Castle:whip: stole my ESC. Hasn't been run in 7 months, except for a few tests with the...

Motor 2: 180

ESC 2(BEC circuit): 175

The two runs added together I get...

The 125 amp pack has plenty of power, so it should not overheat. As long as you set the cut-off the same on both ESCs they should both work just fine. I don't know what cells SMC uses, but theres a...

1. 19/52 yields a 2.73 ratio. 20/68 is 3.4 ratio, so it's a much higher gearing. My gearing is 19/62 which is 3.3. 19/52 would be good for a 50mph speed run, may be too high for off-road running.

Actually 20/68 is probably a little undergeared, my dual velineon Revo likes 19/62 a lot; temps stay below 155 in 80 degree weather. It runs hotter at 19/68. Easily 42-45mph at 19/62.
