I deleted my last profile and started a new one with my real name like you said rcken, and still your being a jerk. What gives man? I thought it wouldn't all be deleted if I used my real name? Or is that just something you guys write to weed out the weenies? So go ahead and delete me. Who cares? I've already showed you I'm not afraid of people knowing who I am. So why are you afraid? Not so fun when someone else can be a jerk too is it? To think all this crap started because I said crackheads suck and small town law-enforcement is corrupt. All I can really say is you have to learn that everyone has an opinion about something and there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. Without opinions all the Jewish people would have been killed years ago and we would all still have slaves. Unlike you I'm not afraid of a little criticism.

When did the price of the Tornado XL/Shockwave go up? I was going to buy one but now I see they went from $99 to $139 on Redcat's site.

Here's my tmaxxx 2.5 converted into a 3.3. It has rpm, aluminum, upgraded drive shafts, roll cage and a 3.3 small block. Pretty much everything is powder coated neon green.

Here's my rustler and a deer in my front yard this morning! Nothing has been done to my rustler except everything that comes inside the box.

It's very reliable. Yea the parts on it seem a little cheap , but they hold up everytime. The best way to run it, is with the optional gear and a 7 cell battery, minimum of a 3000 battery. Speeds are pretty accurate though. 35 mph+. I like it though, plug in battery and go!

The jato is by far the best rc I've ever owned and worked on. The torque that this small block 3.3 pushes out on a 2wd is unreal. It has the ability to go anywhere and fast. Change the tires, to anacondas, lower the springs, just a twist on the shocks and go street. By far the fastest on 33% fuel. Take off, mid- range and top end, none of my other cars come close at all. With my imex g-hawg tires, and twist the shocks and tighten the springs up. Is still the fastest on dirt and grass and climbing.

Yes, you are supposed to cut a hole for air flow into the engine.

scissors would be best, just make a hole in the center and use the scissors to cut it out, you can see the cut out marks on the inside of the body on the windshield.
