    Slash 4x4 heat on 3s.

    The slash will do 60-70mph on the stock systems with 3s. Traxxas kit is very good. Sounds like a fault somewhere or binding in the drivetrain causing this. They do run hot on 3s though especially high discharge packs.

    Lunchbox diff and motor

    3s lipo on the silvercan or sportstuned motors in these is all you need.

    Hobby King - has anyone ever had any issues?

    @Kevin_Mc Give PayPal a call. They can re open a dispute. If you do it via your bank you then run into problems with PayPal. This seems to be normal for hobby king by various accounts.

    Tempted by Tamico again! Oooh CC01!

    CC01 is pretty slow and even with a high KV brushless motor and the correct pinion it's just not quick nor stable. If you want a great gravel rally off road car then the TT02 Lancia is unbeatable value. Great ground clearance too. For general bashing you don't need to mod it. 3s Lipo on the standard brushed motor using a Hobbywing Quicrun 1060 is a very cost effective speed upgrade too. Not sure which country you are in but here's a UK link. https://www.modelsport.co.uk/tamiya-lancia-delta-integrale-tt-02-/rc-car-products/376209 Or Impreza option but larger body gets caught up a bit more in my experience. https://www.modelsport.co.uk/tamiya-subaru-impreza-monte-carlo-99-tt-02/rc-car-products/397245

    So, What Have You Done Today?

    A rollbar with spotlights would transform the look of the body. I have a couple of new in pack black clod F Parts if you wanted to get rid of all the yellow for £20.

    Help choosing a new, larger build.

    There is a decal set. MCI Decals have it on file, they just can't advertise it as the Bigfoot brand do pursue any retailed non-licensed BF products.

    non hex wheels

    It always amazes me the spares people buy though.

    non hex wheels

    Yes 2 sets and they are pretty cheap plus you can sell the fronts on if not used.

    How do the CPE ClodBuster wheel wideners fit?

    The silver rods you can see are threaded internally. They thread/screw onto the axles. The widener's fit over then you screw into them from the wheels using the threaded screws rather than wheel nuts.

    Recommend me rally block tyres please?

    @ThunderDragonCy If in the UK, these work well https://www.modelsport.co.uk/fastrax-street-rally-block-tyre-mounted-on-10-spoke-white-wheels-4-/rc-car-products/387200 Tyres are glued but can be separated in hot / boiling water.

    The "postman Brought Me" Thread

    Everyone I have had, has been at least 15% faster out the box than a self build kit.

    Absolutely this. You can mount the front tyres on the rears etc if you want narrower profiles

    CPE Clodbuster rear steer lock out help pls

    Just make a new steering rod using threaded rod and a hollow rod outer sleeve. Dead easy and really useful to have for replacing other rods. Also, you do appreciate without a front axle direct steering kit 2WS clod chassis don't turn well at all?

    Display Stand Options

    Honestly, imo Lego bricks are the best option to make custom and discreet display stands. Loads of options and combinations, quick to assemble, super glue if you want it fixed and can be sprayed black etc.
