That's cool, I've wondered about doing that myself but already bought a nice side kit ... but looks good ... how about with the body on?

Another quetion I've heard that u sold it, but how was ur experience with the car with the motor? How did the tunning process goes? I just have one of these lightning and I am having bunch of problem. I think this is one of those where u pay what u paid for. If I was smarter I would just save up money instead of going crazy with little money and buying this. Heard it was good, heard some people got it running from stock, heard some had problem needed to replace parts. I'm one of those people that needed to replace the parts to get it running.
Hate that if i send it in I need to wait for long ass time to get it back. Finally a week and a half or two I burly getting my esc for my traxxas electric rustler, or i would go bannana having a car that is a nitro that don't run. ****. How was ur experience with ur car in stock version also you updated with motor and hopups, what is the name of ur mufler looks cool.
