Pretty cool, I just traded my Zd truggy for the buggy in the thread "what to do with $400"

i see, after i worked out all the glitches out of this truggy... added the fornt bumper ect... , it is a beast....with 6s lipo it shreaded my front tires going about 70mph ( maybe more) in about 5min and at the take off it wanted to flip...so i went back to 4s and now it is perfect.

TX setup is neat. I run a 3S lipo in my TX too. I'm tempted to do that balance mod too...but I only have to charger the dang lipo once every 4-6 months... Don't think it's worth it to me.
