    All very well-put, Nate, thanks.

    But I am, and I'm sure others are, interested in that last statement, and what you found out in your research about the EXT2.4 Why do you say it's a cheap EXT2?...

    Well, yeah, the 'vader ST is old as the hills! And DTX hasn't made a nitro Evader since before I got into the hobby. Fortunately a lot of the parts are interchangeable. There was an...

    I had that 5700kv combo in my Evader, very much like the Rustler, and it was indeed too much motor for such a light chassis. Unless you're just going for all-out speed-runs. I'd go with the 4600kv,...

    That IS really cool. Amazing what you can do with these things. Not being a crawler guy, what is the DIG function?

    Wow, sounds great. Thanks for the explanation. BTW, didn't mean to offend. I guess what I meant when I asked about if it was a hack or an "official" update, was where did the modified or updated...

    OMG! Those "gangsta" vans are the goofiest things I've ever seen on wheels! Whoo! I've seen some big spoilers before, but WINGS? And what's with the extended rear bumper thing? Does it double as...

    So the hack (or is it officially a firmware update?) adds sub-trim. That's good. But the things that you can change (Model Name, End Points, etc) are part of the display screen, like a label, not...

    Not only have I never even SEEN a VAN rc body before, but I've never seen nor heard of a Toyota Hiace. I can see why it drew a crowd.

    Very impressive, Brandon. I was surprised how watchable the video was. That is to say, you can actually see where you are going without a lot of bouncing of the video. For yuks, my buddy an & have...

    'K, ya know what? That was not very kind of me. I apologize. :o

    What I should have said was that you will certainly need a stronger servo, possibly a HV one, wouldn't you say?

    Eleven pounds. Eleven pounds. :eek:

    The twist on the axles is going to wear them out fast, if not turn 'em into Twizzlers(tm). The drive train wasn't designed to take that kind of load.

    You guys DO realize how much a steel Evader is going to weigh, don't you? I think we've been down this road before. Even with aluminum, it's going to weigh a lot. And not perform very well. But...

    I was getting concerned about the durability of my Hyper TT (breaking suspension arms) but once I installed T-Bone Racing bumpers on it front and rear, no breakage whatsoever. The NexxSC10 is...

    Yeah Rusty, both ball cups AND studs can wear, and need replacing once in a while. The steering on the 'vader is notoriously sloppy. You can tighten it up a little, by replacing every stud and cup...

    I'd say you're certainly in the ballpark, maybe within the diamond. I was going to suggest using the diameter of the gears to match up the ratio.

    Yep, those are the guys who do most of the more realistic looking, and tru-scale, stuff. They've been re-releasing a good number of "classic" RC cars lately. Fortunately with updates to the designs...

    I was thinking about getting the 835e myself. Almost pulled the trigger. I just wasn't sure I wanted to go that big. A guy turned me on to the OFNA/HoBao Hyper 10TT. It's a "truggy" - a buggy...

    I'd avoid the Tacon models unless you want to order all you parts from overseas. That could be dodgy. The only place I've seen carry them are HobbyPartz and NitroRCX (the same company). While I...

    End Points, exactly. So if kiddo's transmitter has 'em, that's the way you limit his max top speed.

    Ah , good thing to point out, Nate. Yes, do watch out for those little washers that are at the wide end of each little gear in the diff. Don't loose 'em.
