    Ecx ruckus 1/10: wheels don’t move with resistance

    Hi, i have the above truck...actually two. One of the trucks won’t move on the ground but the motor will increase in rpm’s. When I lift it off the ground the wheels will spin appropriately albeit perhaps slower. Does my description make sense?

    Ruckus 4x4 Steering/Servo Issue

    Hello, Rookie here. Just picked up used 2wd Ruckus and 4x4 Ruckus: - The 2wd steering behaves as I would expect - The 4x4 it seems like the wheels don't really turn as far - If the vehicle is stationary I can hear the servo moving but the wheels don't turn as far in either direction as my 2wd...

    Used a LiPo battery and now the Ruckus is dead

    Grandpa (me) figured that a 7.2 v battery is the same regardless of the material. So I bought a LiPo 7.2v battery for my 10 year old grandson's Ruckus (original version from 5 years ago). It worked great, faster than ever. Now the red light on the chassis near the power button just beeps and...

    Camber and toe link problem.

    Hi, I've recently gone brushless on my 2wd Ruckus, still on NiMh though, and my top link keeps popping off. It's not just on bashing either, a heavy turn or what have you and it's off. What beefy upgrades are available please guys? And/or solutions, 'fixes' etc. As ever, thank you, Again lol.

    Are the stock tires different on the front and back?

    My ECX03016 - Ruckus 4WD brushless, came with Shootout MT Speedtreads tires. I've been swapping out wheels and tires quite a bit. Currently, I have all 4 removed and am about to re-mount them and noticed that one pair of tires seems to be a slightly wider (or shaped differently) than the...

    Ruckus speed help

    I’ve got a 2wd 1/10 ruckus that was originally a brushed motor. I switched out to a castle 3800 motor/esc combo, and am using a 2s Lipo, and the top speed I can clock is 32mph. I’ve done the metal trans/differential gears, and a new spur gear due to messing the old one up. But it’s all still the...

    Hey so I blew a tire on my 1/10 ruckus 4wd and I replaced the rear tires with a different set of the same size. The new tires didn’t balloon the same as my front tires and now I have a stripped diff. I can only find a complete diff but I only need the inside gears. You can buy the diff case and...

    Hello! Just getting back in to this hobby after many years away, things have certainly come on a bit since my 1986 Blackfoot, so I got hold of a new/old stock Ruckus for general bashing and to learn with. After a couple of days of running stock everything (NiMh batteries at the minute), I've...
