Well, the lawn is the area I currently have available to run it on, so the car needed to be set up accordingly. It was a Venom 5000 LiPo that puffed. But the point I was trying to make is I found a...

Not to be outdone by this car, I think I figured it out, so here's what I did for archives sake. We went through two motors, (and puffed a lipo) one brushed, one brushless, but finally installed this...

That's awesome. Who's building this one? Taigen? You guys were right, the Chuwai version is egregious! Something is seriously wrong with the hull/bogie area. I'm hoping for a 1/16 RTR airsoft...

That's a smart move, I ditched most of my nitro stuff too. Definitely a good time- diehards are still buying them, however with electric taking over from 46 and down, and the new gas/glow tech ready...

RE: The Thing About Advice
