I love mine, Traxxas Big Bore shocks, RPM: a-arms, shock towers, castor blocks, bearing carriers, Pro-line bow-tie tires and many more different tires, JR ST126MG 129 oz servo, Hitec FM 75 mhz Agressor radio, Mamba Max ESC, and a Ener-G 7 cell matched 4600 mah nihm pack. I also have Traxxas red andonized turnbuckles/links on all four corners.

RPM all around and traxxas big bores with TiNi shafts. they are the only shocks i don't bend after 2 backflips. stampede tires+ramp+8cell battery=backflip or double backflip if you are going fast enough.

My first and only hobby truck to own. This thing is truly a great R/C truck to own.

I've done a ton of things to it, including:

Dirt Hawg Tires
Talon Tires
Waterproof Servo
Custom-painted body
Replaced standard body wing with REVO spoiler

I got alot more adding to it. I recommend this truck any day.

i think my next upgrade will be a 3s lipo and 14mm extended hex adaptors so i can use my t-maxx tires or some 1/8 buggy tires on it.

edit: it will be geared 14/86 with the big tires.

Purchased mine 12.23...driven it three times and broken three parts...

AND I LOVE IT!!! Please don't get discouraged and think it's a POS because of the broken parts, I drive it HARD. It is a blast to drive.

I currently don't have any upgrades, but RPM a-arms and anodized caster blocks are on the way for it. I'm running it on a 4500mah 6c NiMH battery...it takes my dad's Stampede VXL with a lipo in it
