    No, but they sure look cool! Cant make out anything inside the hub. No hex or a bearing holder. If they're HoBao tires, did you look up any OFNA stuff?

    Good ear! You stopped in time. The inner gear's teeth still look good. But yeah, clean it out good, looks like some metal bits in there.

    Did you notice the little pins behind the large bevel...

    AH! Not a kid! OK then, yes I would absolutely recommend going brushless right off. They're just so much better than the cheapo brushed motors. I went thru three motors on my Evader before going...

    Dang tootin' I talk up that AC680 charger a lot! You can't beat it for the money! I've seen similar chargers at TWICE the 680's price, and I can't stand by and watch a noob blow half his budget on...

    Get a brushless system for it. Check out the HobbyWing EZrun or Xerun motor systems. Good value. How big is the Hellion? How much does it weigh? 2wd or 4wd?

    Hey! Welcome to the addiction. :)
    You have a pretty good list there. Starting with brushed motor systems will give you a chance to get used to driving without trying to manage a "bullet". The...

    That's a pretty cool-lookin' body. Oooo....graphite! Arms, too! Glad to see you have bumpers on that puppy. Graphite is strong, but brittle too. Makes for a great chassis tho. Where did you find...

    Hugo, do you know where your servo-saver is? Is it part of the steering bell-crank? Or is it a Kimbrough-style, right on the servo? Does the Fazer even HAVE a servo saver? I could not determine...

    Certainly looks like a well-sorted chassis, everything mounted in the center. The motor is certainly capable, being a Castle. Interesting that you can, if you want, mount FOUR shocks on the rear. ...

    A note on the Savox servos: Expensive, and they suck a ton of current. Some people have had to run external BECs with them because the ESC's BEC can't handle it. Makes the ESC freak out. My LHS...

    Never heard of EDS, Larry. Got a link?
    I agree with you, buy a REALLY GOOD driver for the one you use the most, and you can get by with cheaper ones for the less-used sizes.

    Well, how do you feel about buying Chinese-made products? Motor systems from HobbyWing (EZrun & Xerun) and radios from FlySky are great bargains and are just as good in most cases as anything else,...

    Did you get the battery with the used truck? If so, I'd say it's the battery. When Lipos get old, they will behave like they are not charged, or partially charged. It'll run a few minutes maybe,...

    I have a set of Dynamite hex drivers. For the money, they're just OK. The tips will eventually round off, but can be refreshed by grinding the tip flat. I ended up buying an MIP brand 2.0mm driver...

    Sorry mate. Nuthin wrong with that battery, AFAIK. I'm just a cheap bhazterd and wouldn't pay $130 for something I could get for $82, that's all. Even if I do have to solder on my own connectors.

    Good choice. You won't regret it.

    You're going to need TWO Lipos. OR one 4S Lipo. This is your first RC, right? So there's no reason that you couldn't just get one (or two!) 4S packs, if...

    If you are running 25C and 30C Lipos in a big motor system that is drawing a crap-load of amps, you need to buy higher-C packs. At least 40C, if not 50C. The motor system is trying to draw more...
