yea, I think I am just going to get that battery I posted even if is isn't the best quality I need a battery. Plus I have that same battery for my mini baja and it had a huge boost in performance and run time.as soon as I take a trip to the hobby shop, I am going to make a video and put it on youtube and I will let you know.

yea, I would rather get something like super diffs or something like that before I got shocks but that's just me. I am really unsure about my stuff to, I mean there's really only a couple things I need. Like a battery and maybie some diffs but I'm going to wait till mine blow completely.

You would have to find a 2.3mm pinion with the right pitch to run it .

Venom and I don't think the DTX one will fit because it uses a bigger shaft size.

bummer, they do look cool, at least the DTX one does, you can spend $10 for a stock, or $12 for a higher speed, why not try running it with a vendetta pinion, do you think that may work????
