no problem......I'm actually curiuos myself. I'm building an evader and been trying to decide what to run in it. I don't want to use lipo batteries. Plan on at least a 3000mah or more. Was kicking aound the idea of running the same set up a Traxxas Rustler runs. I just need to get the 19t pinion, 86t spur and the titan 12t motor. along with the 23t pinion for speed runs.

The only problem with the jato wheelie bar is that it flexes really easy. My jato gets very tipsy when im trying to ride a wheelie.

Yeah I noticed that a little about the wheelie bar. I'll probably get him one for the BL evader along with the rear chassis plate. But just thought why not try it and see if I could get it to work.

the guy just called about the truck i really wanted something now the money is burning a whole in my pocket lol. the highroller has gear issues . now i went there all pages and i see alot of people changing there gear box so they can run brushless. im not going to i might put a tad lower turn motor in my truck. my question is based on me staying pretty much stock will the gearbox hold up? if its crap i might give the guy a call back. i held off saying no i still have that high roller for 75.00 in my back pocket if i want. thanks guys

The gearbox is fine if you don't run lipo. I suggest you get the duratrax 3800mah 7.2v battery. I got that 2 years ago. It ran fabulous for 1 1/2 years. Then it started going down hill. Now it's history. I did a bunch of gearbox upgrades and got brushless. Now I'm saving for lipo.

Take that zip-tie off of those motor to esc connecters. If their tight together like that, when the motor heats up, they'll fuse together.

I guess that came out wrong. I'm acually homeschooled too. I'm going into the 7th grade this year. Is 7th hard? What school year is everyone else going into?

My older sister was in 2nd grade and was bullied. So my momstarted homeschooling her, and then along came me. She didn't want the same for me, so I have just been homeschooled all my life.

I get out at 2:30 as well, but I have an hour of optional research time in the computer lab. I doubt there will be any Evader running this year because I have half of last year and all of Grade 12 to complete. Add to that being elected president of Student Council. I'm going to be busy!
