So what motors are best for trial trucks, how to prevent gear slippage and why diffs suck when offroading.

So you're not a fan of knob-gears ? I've made some vehicules with knob-gears in the drivetrain which drove pretty smooth. OK, these were not Trial-truck and were designed to run faster. I generally omit bevel-gears in 90-degree orientation, because they have a small contact-surface, which makes them skip easily. And the 12-tooth half-bevel gears isn't very strong (like the 8-tooth).
By the way, there were some really good tips in the video, which are not only usefull for trail-trucks, but Lego-Rc-cars in general.

NIce work, but I think, one thread for whole serial of tips&tricks will be better than current thread per episode.

I disagree. These threads have generated some pretty interesting discussions.
