Ive come to realize that I have a classic 2.5 4-Tec from 98 and Ive decided to try to rebuild it as close to stock as possible. I will be putting all of the build here and on Traxxas.com to keep you all informed on how it goes!. I have a picture of parts i need to install plus a stylish wheel. The other picture is a box of mixed parts from 4 cars and a boat. Shoutout to organization!

Who can find the most broken electric motors.

I don't want to start off complaining, but I had just gotten my Dromida SC 4.18 from the hobby store and broke it the day of. I was driving it in my backyard and the motor started to steam and wouldn't run. After letting the motor and battery cool off it still wouldn't move, but it would steer. If anyone else has this problem and a solution please tell me because the motor has been replaced twice and if I buy a new one I want to make it last.

Other than that the truck ran great, before breaking, and was a blast. Since it was the first truck I had before I get an axial, I went a head and stuck the chain on it after I had lifted it and bought the 22t brushed speed motor. I could definitely see the power difference and it would scream down the road. I can't wait to get the brushless kit. I'll post some pictures as soon as I get my camera fixed.

Accidentally posted this as a comment:

I've finnished an off road conversion on my 4-Tec. I raised the air filter, made an aluminum dirt guard, move batteries into bumper for weight balance, and lifted it as much as possible. Here are some pictures:

I've als made a chain which is going on a scale crawler I'm planning on buying. If anyone has a recommendation for a crawler please tell me. Just know there's a tight budget.
