Yup, then bought daces, but I only sold the two pairs of Prolines, BRAND NEW IN PACKAGING, for $16.



I cried...




OH yeah! And you see the busted RRP spur! WELL, I broke another one! WEEE!!!

Axial .28! Hate it but there's tons of power! It's just that there is too much tuning...

Looks a lil low, but SWEET nevertheless. And I love the wheels and how the wheel nuts look sooooo small. HAHA

What kind of wheels/tires are those? I"m gonna guess hotbodies?

Here's a short video running a BUKU pipe. This pipe is insane. The grip is pretty bad so the video doesnt do the pipe justice, but man is it awesome

That pick up is incredible!!! That pipe and those mods did a lot! So's the speed, the pwoerband in great!

Are those the MGT8.0 tires? They hook up awesome in the snow and on the pavement. And what kind of steering servo do you have there? It turned the big wheels with ease...

Looks like you almost have a perfect truck! And with you homemade mix, it must be cheap to run too!

you're not kidding Evader, the modded engine and the BUKU really brought some spunk to this truck. Im really impressed with the way the truck is now. Those are 8.0 tires. They are a real soft rubber and hook up great on snowy/slick surface. The steer servo is still stock, I see alot of others upgrade their servo, but for what I do the stock is still fine for me. Thanks for comments and watching the vid!

Wow, I wish my stock servo would turn my wheels at a standstill, but I guess my big joes aren't helping either!

Those are the tires man. I am surprise more people don't use em. If you do, the days of flipping over with be a thing of the past. Now you lose some bottom end, ie wheelie. But your top end speed increases. :-) Oh and those are stock nuts. :-)

Are bow tie 40 series tires mounted on velocity 40 series rims a pretty good setup?

Thats the thing i will be getting a rock crawler so thats 2 but I was thinking down the road.
I heard the new spectrum has like 30 memory.
But i guess it will due.
You dont experience no glitching on it.
And does it have a built in fail safe.
