That's true, but who knows when a sale will come along? I got my last 1717 for $70 and have yet to see a sale like that since. They do a good sale for black friday, but aside from that you just...

I think if you guys sold out to the chinese I'd give up on this hobby for good. It's hard for a lot of us to pony up the money for your goods but they are worth it! Quality products backed by...

Check out some of the Barebones kits on TigerDirect. They've usually got some deals, granted there's a lot of mail in rebates, but if you shop around a bit you can score a nice computer for cheap. ...

I pulled the tranny and it turns out the previous owner put the 3 speed conversion in it. At this point should I put it all back together and sell it as a complete tranny and buy a Flux transmission...

I've got some 60k oil, would that be enough or should I get something thicker?

Savage as a trail truck?

I bought a Savage a year or so ago with the intention of building a big 5th scale truck out of it but that idea kinda fell apart. A lot of people I know are getting into Summits, SCX10s, Wraiths,...

That would be the site, thanks PBO! They sell some pretty nasty stuff, not cheap but you should be able to do your whole conversion from that site (maybe source your lipos from HC though).

Perhaps look into some of the E-Bike motors? Not the hub motors that replace the wheels but they have some big, nasty motors for $200-$300 that should push that thing around pretty well. Sorry I...

What's wrong with the stock shock towers and diff setup?

Those little onboard cameras are really cool, especially if you set it up for FPV.

I don't remember exactly, but going through my purchase history it looks like it should be Lunsford part # LNS1538. I sheared off a stock RPM one on my first run, very cheap metal and RPM wouldn't...

I think the release got pushed back a bit. If you have one on order I really wouldn't be expecting one 'til early Spring. At least a lot of us wouldn't be able to use one until they show up.
