Default RE: Return of Lunchbox..

Getting there - as you can see, still waiting for the other two shocks for the rear (assembled the car with the stocks just to be able to test it for setup).

Servo chosen was Futaba S3305, as it was recommended over the 3050 by the shop staff. Also got the radio and charger now, with 3300 mAh NiMH battery.

Made an internal antenna, and routed the power switch for the receiver through the chassis, receiver batterypack is attached in the front with a velcro.

The gearbox has an oil intake, should I put in some, or is the grease enough (manual does not recommend anything else)? Running it in the air it does sound
a bit dry (and is quite loud with high revs), but I guess that's how it just sounds. Should I run-in the motor (Sport Tuned), or is it good to go right from the box?

Looking at painting the wheels - Is spray good to go (a bit tricky for deep wheels like this), or should I just use a brush?
