Got my first Real bash in with my Merv this Morning. Had a lot of fun!
Hit the local Skate Park early in the morning before the skate rats woke up.
The Merv handles Big Jumps and Big Air (for a 1/16 car) really well!... Had a lot of fun!
I had a couple harsh landings on the front end but I didn't break anything,,,,,,yet. Lol.
I'm thinking of picking up a T-Bone Chassis protector set,,,,,or at least the front/rear bumpers.
I'm wondering though if it will add a lot of weight.....

Have at it! I would like to see some shots of other dogs doing the same. The flag is just a piece of bandana with velcro sewn to it and the attachment is just a length of rope with velcro and three layers of shrink tube on it to stiffen it but still flexible enough not to poke out his eye. It also keeps the flag from getting caught up in the wheels.

Default Brushed to Brushless conversion

Hi everyone,

I'm relatively new to RC cars and want to convert my 1/16 MERV from brushed (12T titan) to brushless (380 variant). I've tried to find an easy-ish list of items I'd need and have the found the following. Am I missing anything or have I listed the wrong items???

Thanks a bunch,
Jurgen.
  • VXL-3m ESC
  • Velineon 380 motor
  • TRA2423 48P pinion gear (23T)
  • TRA7360 finned 550 motor mount
  • TRA7379R 550 gear cover set
  • TRA7380 motor plate

You have the 550 size motor mount and gear cover listed. You need the 380 size ones which are:

TRA7077 gear cover
TRA7060 motor mount
(You have the right motor plate listed)

If you haven't bought them yet, here is all 3 together for $12 shipped https://www.ebay.com/itm/7107-Traxxa...ss!84047!US!-1
Also, you can get the motor and ESC cheap on ebay
