also if that doesn't work the throttle might be reversed because if it goes forward when pulling reverse then that might not only be the programing part

I got a wing and some new wheels, im going to go get some pvc pipe to put on the wheels so i can get my drift on. Yayaya i know these arent made to drift, but holy crap is is fun. You can also put electrical tape on the tires it will drift too. Here is a couple pics i have, more to come.


I was also jumping onto my bed with a jump made from a revo box,

cool, kindof mad that The Toyz doesn't have the DP Draglink in stock, they say it should be in in 2, 2, 08 !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!![sm=angry.gif][sm=omg_smile.gif], anyone know where to get the Hitec Servo Saver dealie, my LHS doesn't have it, i can prob special order it though , and is the Hitec HS-65MG Metal Gear Micro Servo any good???? I know I need the different saver???? i kindof race/bash so that is why I am asking, seems fast,

I tried the RC18B wing once , it lasted about 3 runs before it was ripped off !

3Racing makes a wing without holes already drilled in it so you can drill your own and mount it too the RC18B wing struts . If you dont want to be botherd with mounting the Vendetta wing and mount .

yea that servo is good but i didnt want to pay 35 bucks for it. so i got the karbite gear one for 20 bucks and an aluminum steering bell crank thing, no slop at all. i will take some pics and show ya. the shocks dont leak as much as the stock ones and you can adjust them. if i were you i would get the turnbuckles, servo, saver, and a rpm bumper
