nope, i am very happy with it, plus you have more options on gearing since you can use a single speed from a 12 tooth to i think a 20 tooth.

I was taking a good look at my two speed trans and i dont think it would be that hard to make it into a one speed it just wouldnt be a direct drive setup.

ths os cvrx is a direct fit, bolts right up. the shaft on the 2 speed is different than the single speed the single speed gear wouldnt work on it, the only thing similar is the housing

cool i bought one of ebay then when i was at the hobby store i noticed that i only saved 6 bucks oh well lol. So what do you think about the shocks? did you look at the link? Do you jump your tsunami? It would be fun to but i just want to know what they can handle.

The guy at the hobby store just told me to sell it that its a POS and spend over 700 on there traxxas one with a .15 in it.

i jump mine with no problem, the shocks should be great, dont pay any attention to the hobby shop guy, most shop owner and employees put down what they dont sell, i said most, not all.

what oil do you use in your shocks im thinking that a lighter oil might be a bit better because its only just over 5 pounds. Sure a traxxas would be nice but you know what i think that when something major breaks on mine like the front diff or rear that i might just get a traxxas one and make a hot rod out of it. then i can buy the parts here. I got some sealed bearings there harder to turn but they do keep the dirt out.

Would any 12 mm wheel work on the tsunami?
