A vid from a track, first track movie...stock setup,batteries (1200 nimh) i think it handles great..dont even think about the crapy tires...this track is a Holeshot one (talked to the owner), some Setup change and it will be a killer.

Damn Thomas your Revo looks awesome on the track
Looks like you are about as fast as the 1/10th buggy's!

Im really thinking about getting one in +- 2 weeks when I get some money sorted (my last order of 1/10th 2wd and 4wd tires and parts wasn't cheap)

Thank you boys for those words...sad i cant push the truck yet...more tuning is a must. still a real "traction roller" ....one thing, it did rock on the loose surface on the big 1/8 track.

You will not regret it if you buy one!!!

Had a MM esc here, so i installed it, and i think it feels better with this and the stock motor..more power... it was a tight fit, but it works real well...

are the dish wheels 2.2's or where is everyone getting them??

i think revos look great with dish wheels, makes them look like truggies

im really intrested in getting one as funds dont allow an e revo brushless edition as racing eats all my money and it's very hungry for my money and my dads

Why did you sell it? I just bought one and was wondering your thoughts on it. Do you have any links to other build ups? What were the necessacary mods to make it better? I always enjoy reading your build threads.

Sorry m8, but things moves on . The car is more fantastic then any other "mini scale" cars OUTDOORS! that ive ever tried. Spec on loose or bigger tracks like 1/8 scale offroads..

The car is out of the box way to soft..the shocks are underdimensioned for its proposel (spelling) to get this woorking, you have to with stock pistons (for grippy tracks) move up to 1300-1500w rear and 1000-1200w front...stock springs no mather what are no optin, Black in rear and TAN front. If you seal of one piston hole (like i did) you can get down on "more normal" weights on oil...thin i used 70-80 rear and 50-60 front...

app 4-5mm!! limiters to get less outtravel(otherwise you can drive over a pig)...Centerdiff is a REAL good investment, but beware of the "seals"...be gentle on them...i used 50k i think 40-45k is a better option on better grp track to prevent wheelies...Slipper is working GODD, and that can be used only if you like..(never tried the CD to much)

I used to runt stock travel, and 70 rear and 50 front with goosebumps on our 1/8 scale track with good result..the car just floats over the big bumps..for high grip the car still have some issiues that you never will get rid of..HIgh CG... on rc-xtreme.blogspot.com on the right nav meny you have link to my gallery, there are some sections dedicaded for this car.
