I like the bling, it does look pretty, and that is what the draw was in buying it all, making the cool look pimp. I didn't realize that the light aluminum wouldn't be so light. Ihave a sinking feeling based on the destruction of the first bumper Igot, that a few of the parts they say are machined from airplane grade aluminum are really just powdered metal in forms. The bumper broke off cleanly at the mount and the snap of the metal looked like powdered metal formed not aluminum. I am currently speaking with Integy about this, very disappointed. If I break the suspension arms I won't replace them with metal, Iwill switch to the RPM's probably in black, the blue ones look odd. I heard there is no place to attach the sway bars on the RPM's, is that true? Ihave new ball end coming for the shock ball end that broke and replacement stainless steel drive shaft as well. That upgrade Idid like, plus Igot one of these cars for my son also, so having spare parts on hand from what I have replaced is nice. Tightening the slipper clutch did solve the power problem, it goes just fine now, although I am sure it isn't reaching its previous speeds or taking longer to get there. I don't hear second gear kick in as fast or at all sometimes. Although I only ran it for about 10 minutes before crashing it and causing those damages. I don't know why Igot the wheelie bar, it doesn't wheelie anymore with these heavier parts. Maybe thats a good thing?? I liked that crazy off the line power though lifting up the front.

that company is known for spotty metals, its probly cast aluminum not block CNC, anything cast tends to have large pores when broken and look like diecast or pressed steel, also they tend to be lighter and break alot easier.

rpm is a good product, i have yet to break an rpm arm on my t-maxx (though i really dont crash into stuff)

Got my desperado rims and my streetfighter tires in the mail Saturday. Glued and mounted, they swell up like giant donuts when I'm flying down the road. I don't think they were meant for such high speeds, but they grip well.

Looking good brother. A little trick to keep the tires from ballooning. It works awesome on my Anacondas. Put duct tape on the inside of the tire. I placed 2 even layers on each tire and it eliminated the ballooning completely.

By the way how good do those tires grip compared to the Anacondas?

They grip awesome, several times I thought I was going to loose control at high speeds with them ballooned and ran off the road and they held the direction change just fine. Iwould say that theyhave better grip than the anacondas.How am I suppose to add the duct tape now after already gluing the tires? I would like to do that modification on my current tires. Wish I had known before glue was applied.

You can boil the tires off but it will mess up the chrome finish on the rims. So don't do it. Now you know fir next time.

Thought I would contribute with all the great trucks in here. My GT I used to race dirtoval with but the local tracks stopped this class. Now its a backyard basher, Old and tired dynamite .12S, just getting it back in GOOD working order, I do have a new set of rear tires..



And I just picked this little guy off craigslist for.......$40 with radio and 1 battery. This will be my sons when he decides he wants to play (he doesn't know its his yet)[8D]

My fairly new MT2 3.0. I had wanted one for years, but always went with something different (RcC10gt, OFNA buggy etc). A few little upgrades like alloy steering knuckles and aluminum rear shocks..




Since I rarely see them used, I went with a MX-1 body. A chance to break out the airbrush.
