  1. FWIW, the Shock Gear dampers have worked well for me. I am using them on a heavy Konghead, so that might be why. I built them with Tamiya red o-rings instead of the stock clear o-rings. I can't remember if they have stock oil, or Tamiya yellow oil.
  2. Which XR10 is it? Pro, Stock Spec, or Juststock? Do you have the program card? There are a lot of settings that you can experiment with to get it running how you want. You can turn down the punch setting to help with the wheelies.
  3. Yes, it is. I changed over to an esc in that car after I had the msc stick on full throttle and take off twice. I was lucky that the car just ran into tall grass on the side of the lot I was running in. Still, it was cool running the MSC just to see how it worked.
  4. The tires on the Slash(and other short course trucks) are the same diameter as the tires on a Lunchbox so it handles grass much easier than a buggy.
  5. Did you clean the MSC contacts before trying to drive it? I bought a used Bearhawk back in the day and the MSC had "gunk" on the metal contacts. Once I cleaned them with rubbing alcohol it ran with no issues. There are other advantages to having an esc though. No runaways.
  6. I didn't come up with the idea. I'm pretty sure I heard it here at one point.
  7. I don't know what country you are in, but here are some in the US https://www.ebay.com/itm/RC-TAMIYA-SHOCK-DAMPER-3mm-O-RINGS-50597-TXT-1-TXT-2/233582707111?epid=21012062539&hash=item36629d41a7:g:8g0AAOSwku5ep1Fz
  8. All you need are some Tamiya red o=rings and some new shock oil. Those are already upgraded from the stock friction shocks.
  9. That's a beauty! Hopefully one day I can get my hands on one.
  10. Thanks. I was just curious because I've read so much about people building their own batteries. I only charge my Nimh's at 1C so hopefully I can avoid flying cells! I'm glad the OP didn't get injured.
  11. Just out of curiosity, how many of these were home made?

  13. Yes, they are the same tire and you can use the Heavy Dump Truck ones in their place. The wheels on the Lunchbox/Midnight Pumpkin are wider so you get a different sidewall profile.
  14. Traxxas has released a Stampede 4x4 kit and just announced a 2wd Slash kit. I feel gross after writing that. I need to go take a shower.
