New pic time!!

Ordered a new redcat stock body, proline trencher wheels, and a proline roofrack. The body isn't trimmed completely in these pix but it has already been done.

Good eye. Exactly what it is. The stock body just falls apart way to fast.

redcats 90 day warrenty covers electronic parts mainly. And pretty much any company wont except a return once fuel has been put in it.

But Redcat has come threw for me before. i had a backdraft 3.5 and the recoil broke during breakin. its not covered under the warrenty, but they sent a new one anyway!

what exactly is the rear diff doing? I havent heard of anyone having issues with the 3.5's diffs.

The rear diff is locked up and will not roll forward,,,front diff works fine,,when you roll the truck backwards you can hear parts in the diff grinding and moving around,,was just puttering around the yard when i heard a noise and then seen the front wheels dragging the truck,,rear wheels not turning at all,,happened on 1rst tank of fuel,,hopefully they send me a new diff and i have no more problems for the rest of break-in period,,i have 3 other nitros and have never had anything like this happen during break-in,,just my luck i guess,,,Bluecat211

Just finished some more mods. Tired of waiting for Redcat to get receivers in so I purchased a Futaba 3PM MX Transmitter with matching receiver. Had to relocate receiver box to front of car with a Traxxas receiver box. Also install Proline Split 6 Beadlocks with some Proline Switch tires. Waterproof servo also installed. Next thing to do is waterproof my ESC and I'll be able to hose the car off as it will be completely sealed. as far as electronics go. Also install Steel Spur gear with a Losi hardened steel 15 tooth Mod 1 pinion gear. We'll see how she runs tomorrow.
