Nice ride Tim!
Just my opinion, but if you don't have bearings, I would make those the next thing on your list. A fuel filter is also a great (and cheap) investment.

Ohh i already have bearings. I never thought about a fuel filter how much do they cost?

I have a Dubro and a Great planes for my trucks. Both are under $4 at your lhs, and to me, both work great.
I originally bought a Duratrax filter ($7) and hated it, but have heard others say they like it.

i have a tip or two....cut that zip tie on the header and tuck that wire on the right side in....also you could zip tie the Rx balloon shut...that way no water or moisture can get in:)

I was going to cut the zip tie its just that the car hasnt been running lately so when i put it on i didnt bother to cut it. As far as that wire goes I cant find a place to put it. Right now its just kinda stuck under the throttle servo.

I love the dirt works and yes the car is very clean because first, It hasnt been running and second i dont have any big dirt fields or tracks near my house so i just drive in the front yard or by my school with rev. We just oredered this starter box and backplate so i can take the weight of the ez start off.
And it is snowing right now so im gonna have some fun building a jump. It is really coming down here in illinois. I will post some pictures of the jump and car if the snow is still on the ground by the time the stuff gets here.

Does anybody have any ideas where i can put that wire? Right now its just stuck under the servo and seems to be fine right where its at but i dont want to take any chances and get it caught in the spur gear or something.

hey, for the battery lead, i run it from the switch harness inbetween the engine block and carb(you can put this section in fuel tubing if your worried about it burning) then under the fuel tank and up to the reciever on the other side.
