xs mods

Post by cmnyj28 » Tue Apr 08, 2014 3:21 pm

So my xs is heavy, I'm pondering upgrades,  steering servo, ESC, motor?
Suggestion, ideas.
Tires are a must thinking trenchers?

Servo upgrade will help.
I went with the traxxas 2075 WP servo
I also added 4 more shocks for 8 total to prevent from bottoming out
Also added the CV driveshafts to all four wheels (broke a dog bone after 4 packs of 2S)
went to 24 / 60 gearing to prevent any heat and stress on stock motor and ESC. I'm only running 2S on mine. plenty of power
