Dang, i now have the smoothest diff ever in an evader. Usually it feels botchy, but mines as smooth as silk and FINALLY doesn't slip! I took it apart and took out all the auto grease and put in some bearing grease and flipped the diff ring around and now it's awesome!

I had a blast in the snow and i was jumping a little in snow and didn't break anything. 2wd in the snow is crazy! When at 1/2+ throttle on packed stuff it was uncontrollable but awesome. There's this hilly section near my house, and with the new rear tires i can blast righ up em and throw roost! And the servo is now working good, so i plan on more snow bashing tomorrow.

RTR. I don't have the cash to get pre-built and then buy all the electronics right now.
lol
I'm going to step it up after I have the car for a while.

Plus I got $30 off for spending the $200 at Tower. lol

You need to enter the code they give you on the homepage. You're gonna like it if this is your first. What batteries/charger did you get?

On a different subject....

Does the stock Pro's 12-turn ESC have a low voltage shut-off mode (ie. turn off the motor when power is too low to support the receiver)?
I've checked the documentation and it doesn't say so so I assume no; it's sort of a cheap thing not to include it.
