well, my pics are semi outdated but meh. Both are powered by Losi Xcelerin 9400kv Motors and ESC's. The one with the 3Racing Chassis used to be a T!







Still havent gotten around to getting 2 lipos nore i have i bothered to get some Hitec servos. Eventually i will, probley when the LST2 gets boring haha. Why mess with it if it aint broke i guess lol.

i use a 500 gallon 200psi air compresser after every run to clean them off aswell as simple green haha! but they do have there body scuffs and scraps from high speed rollovers. I borrowed my cousin's T-rex's 3 cell lipo and my god.....the thing was almost impossible to drive. with that battery, its balloned the tires x_x

no .. i think its about umm transmitter and receiver ....

there is no need to upgrade unless you are having glitching problems, bad distance/range, or the old one broke ...

all JR and Specktrum stuff are good and have good rep...

if you are racing it would be worth it ... you do not need ALL THOSE memory functions...and stuff ...

IMO for your car its not worth the money ... since you arent racing or having problems with your stock one .

are you haveing problem with the stock radio ?

Well Im not sure but i think if I upgrade electronics, it will stop the steering problem i have. My car turns like the servo trim is ajusted wrong and when I correct it and make it straight it eventually does the same thing again. Im also going to put a mamba 8000 in it and theres a big strip i want use by my house. I dont want my car straying away from the path if im not turning the car.

well the 8000 will get getting pretty hot if your just driving it around..i'd suggest the 6800 if you want mamba...but if your racing and you have to be ROAR approved id go with the novak mongoose 13.5 or 10.5 turn
