Ihave been researching on the forums for a few weeks and wanted to take a dive into my first RCvehicle purchase. Ihave built and flown model airplanes for the last 3 years and messed with RCboats some, so I do have some modeling experience. Iwanted some opinions on what would be the best upgrades to have as I am putting this roller together. Iam not sure as of yet that Ihave everything needed for a complete working kit, so Iwill itemize a list. Iplan to use this vehicle on dirt, Grass, gravel and pavement. We have a dirt track close to house as well which Iplan to run on. This truck will be bashed/jumped and raced for fun. Because of the distance to a hobby shop, Iorder most items online, so Ilike to have common items that wear or break on hand. Iknow this is going to cost alot more then my initial budget, but I want to do it right the first time around!
**As a Thankyou for whom-ever gives me the most useable/educated assistance finalizing this build, Iam offering a modest 25$ credit to US vendor of your choice. Iknow its nothing major, but my way of a thankyou for your assistance Keep assistance within constraints of already purchased items please. Only 1 credit will be issued to the person Ifeel has offered me the best assistance. Thanks again.
