My TXT won't be a crawler, though!! Or I wouldn't have used the SuperDuty XR w/ high voltage...

Yay! Try to do some fabricating this time lol, jk. Sometime I'll pick up some t-maxx shafts because I still get a little front axle binding.

Got to give props to rc4wd.com

They ran out of the New Era skid for TXT.. (I ordered 2 a couple of months ago, but only got 1..) I patiently waited but finally e-mail them about not receiving the 2nd skid.. Mike there responded by sending me 2 used New Era skid, a set of aluminum lower axle guard, and 2 NEW Vertigo blue anodized skids..

They went above and beyond to make a customer happy.. props for them!

Crawlers get dirty and banged up anyway. I'm really interested in the 2.2 beadlocks or the advanced rock crawling axles. 110 and 200

I don't know why I keep buying parts for my imaginary TXT....

The REVO shaft is pretty darn huge.... I heard they are very strong... should be good for the rear of the TXT...

Since I had pretty good experience w/ the Novak synth receiver on my TC4 FT.. figured that I'd run that on my TXT too..

Again, imaginary TXT.... [:@]
