Further Description/Back Story I got this Traxxas Rustler on my birthday in 2021 and it was my first actually good RC car. About six months later, I went to camp and I learned how to upgrade my car. I upgraded it with RPM Racing front and rear A-arms, a new bumper, servo, and anodized aluminum shock caps with new racing grade oil. After that, I bought the Castle Creations Sidewinder SCT motor and ESC combo. I bought a Zeee 2S lipo and it ran at 40+ mph. Then, I got a Zeee 3S lipo and it runs at around 55 mph with no pinion. So much for a VXL that barely goes 70 mph ON a pinion!
