Default New Car

I just got 700 dollars as a gift and i was thinking of using it in my rc needs. I will not be using it for my store. I will be using it for my rc personal needs. I currently have 2 lightnings and a tornado bb. I cant find where they have a avalanche in stock so if you have anything to suggest for me to get such as parts bodies wheels and cars please tell me.

Oh and one of my lightnings has a OS .18 CVR and the other one has a SH 18 and the tornado is stock. Im also thinking of getting fail safe for all of them.

He wants me to make sure its not the tuning first. He is giving me some tips and needle settings. Need to pick up a new glow plug in the morning to see if that is what it is. The one that is in it is pretty new i changed the plug after break in, so we will see if that solves the problem. I will be very unpleased with myself if that was the problem. :0 But life lessons come from silly mistakes.

I haven't seen an avalanche in person, but from videos they looks pretty cool. From what I have seen I would say a 1/8 buggy or the Monsoon. I love my Monsoon, and I think it was my greatest buy. My dad has a hurricane and it is pretty sick too.

I have both the Hurricane XP pro and the Avalanche, I suggest getting the Hurricane it is faster and in my opinion better. The two are pretty much the same build other than a few things like tires, hub extentions, clutch bell, no mud guards and some other upgrades. I have beat the crap out of my hurricane and it still lives to bash another day. I and many others would suggest getting a nice radio setup. Nothing worse than chasing down an out of control 40 mph r/c. I use the spektrum dx no problems since.
