    That battery wouldn't have burned out your motor necessarilly; even it it was a 7C. If the motor was dirty from sitting unused for a long time then that could possibly do it. Check the condition of...

    I suggest waiting until it dries otherwise the wet paint can smudge.

    I own an RC10 from '89 and an RC10B4 from '03. While I agree that both are great vehicles and make excellent race cars I believe that a brushless 2wd buggy might be more than a child could manage;...

    I advise against it. The Revo platform is a much nicer design than the Maxx platform. A Revo will out-handle a Maxx any day. While I believe the suspesion will handle jumps equally, the...

    Get it from any Horizon dealer relatively soon. Street price is said to be $299.

    I'll have to dig through my RC stuff and take a picture if I can find it. I sprayed a JConcepts "Gate Crusher" body to run on my SCX. Just used a spray can of white; Parma I believe. Anyhow, the...

    There's no shame in spraying a one-color body, especially since this is a scale truck meant to resemble a real vehicle. Once you put the decals on it will add "highlights" that will make it stand...

    Good advice...

    I'll add to this in regards to preparing the body. I like to lightly scuff the areas that will be painted with a medium-grit sand paper, maybe around 150 or so. Especially in the...

    If you eventually begin to use LiPo batteries you'll never want to go back to NiMh. As stated here the voltage doesn't sag as much under load where the NiMh feels flat after a few minutes. As far...

    A real bargain at the moment is the Team Durango DESC210R kit. They're less than $200 and can be configured for mid motor, have "big-bore" shocks and is engineered as a full race platform. I'm an...

    Don't use household scissors on the body. Curved Lexan body scissors have a much shorter cutting edge and the curve helps get them into corners easier. Plus, as you're cutting they curve away from...

    Right now I believe the RC4WD "Trail Stomper" is about the least expensive RTR scaler out there. Or maybe that "Komodo" truck you see online. A $200 RTR scale truck would be welcome on the market. ...

    Spektrum servos, I believe, are 25T splines. Hitec are commonly 24T so that could have been your issue.

    Additionally, to help prevent "brown outs" in the future I suggest a glitch buster...

    This caught my eye when I first received an email from Horizon weeks ago. The pricing is rigth in line with what Axial offers, most kits rage from $300 - $330 with the Dingo being the least...

    In that price range I might advise an Associated SC10 RS, SC10B RS or Losi XXX-SCT. They're all priced right around $300. You might be able to find a deal online somewhere. They're all major racing...

    I wouldn't get too concerned on the C rating for a trail truck. as PHMaximus stated, the amp draw on these motors is relatively low and either of those batteries would be more than sufficient. The...

    Really, all those "Chinese" packs are pretty much the same. You'll hear arguments why which one is better but it's like Ford vs Chevy vs Dodge. I got attached to Turnigy and I'm convinced that...

    I agree with the water situation. It's tempting to do but I personally don't like dealing with soggy / rotting tire foam and all the steel parts are nearly impossible to dry thoroughly unless you...

    While a brushles motor will surely have more "kick" than the basic brushed motors in a standard RTR I still believe you will be happier in the long run. This package inclues a 6-cell 5000mAh battery...

    No worries. If you end up ordering from Tower, be sure to take advantage of their promo codes listed on their main page.

    I'll give you some feedback because I've owned or currently own some of the vehicles you listed. ECX trucks in general are good beginner trucks and the plastic their made of can absorb impacts better...

    I see your screenshots. That promo gives $49 off $450 but with a membership you can get $45 off $300 and I think at $400 you get $60 off. Then under the current promos, you get $80 off $500, $100 off...

    I see what you're talking about. No, it doesn't work that way. They give codes on the main page to the public but, as you figured, they're not as much of a discount as the membership codes. You...

    It's not an "extra" $35 off in the regard that you're thinking. I'm not sure what the 11% discount is you're referring to. That must be something else entirely. Basically the truck is priced at...
