Looks like I will be getting the MB in a week or so, and I would like to hear from you guys on what you suggest as far as things I will need to get started, and what you find that breaks the most.
I need info and recomendations on the following:
batt., recv. settups
gas and oil
and anything else you may see pertinent.
Thanx for your time and help, I look foward to being a part of the "elite" http://www.traxxas.com/ubb/smile.gif

I use a 7.2 volt battery and a Futaba 2PEKA radio(75Mhz.channel 75).The reciever is designed to handle up to 8.4 volts.I use Klotz 2 cycle synthetic oil with castor in it.You will love the Buggy.

the stock air filter is lacking a bit for running in dusty conditions and sand,it will let it into the motor.before any rough riding terrain,clean out the shocks and put in between 30 and 40 weight oil or the shafts will bend, i use 35 in the front and 40 in the back with a 4 hole.jr makes a 1800mah batt that bolts right in and has tons of power,fail safe is a must,for the servos, i would recommend just shorten the wires and solder them and heat shrink them together instead of an 2 to 1 adapter. cleaner looking and less things to go wrong.
let us know how you like it. also how is that 4 motor truck doing? i want to hear more about it.
