uhoo I made mine 2wd and it was killer hard to controle and the rear diff didnt like it very much and your just going to add 2 times as much strain to the powertrain. Even if its spinning its still hard on things
yeah i no about hard to control lol its a mission and a half , my front drive shafts have come so i guess il just put them in but it does the best burnouts at the moment lol hahahahhahaha

These are the tires and rims I chose. They are a direct fit.

Guess I'm lucky my wife confiscated my monsoon and now my hurricane said they are hers she left me only my 1/10's tsunami,viper and my losi. I thought she'd hate driving but I think she likes it more than me. Either way now when I order stuff I don't get yelled at lol.

damn swamp you are a lucky man...
retro Id go with the duratrax failsafe or any other one thats cheaper then that venom. $33 is a lot for a failsafe.
fill your shocks to the top of the body. Make sure to bleed out all the air bubbles before closing them up.

haha ya swamp3r that can be a bad and good thing. but if you wanted a new 1/8th because she took both of yours i bet she wouldnt complain haha

retro ive heard that the overheat failsafe breaks a lot. maybe im wrong but i hear a long time ago that you should just go with the regular fail safe, hopefully someone else will chime in

if you have it set too lean, when the tank gets to half there might not be enough pressure to feed the fuel to the carb. Try making it a little richer and see if that helps.

took my bb tsunami out and ran it in a factory car park , ended up getting out there and finding my throttle servo had died for no reason , any one els had servo prob's? any ways went back to my house and put in a spare good futaba one i had . so took it back out and finished breaking it in and let her rip . i may need to go to a 14t bell . it does about 60-70kph with the 13t and single speed but has way to much bottom end and just wheel spins. a 14t or 15t may be good i think .the clutch bells tho are not that cheap for a good vented one suckzzz.
