    So only front brakes? I can live with that. I heard it's pretty responsive, and tbh, anything that brakes better than a brushless motor will due for me!
  4. What's the difference between the 2.5 and the 3.3?

    I am looking at a revo 2.5. What are the differences of the two other than motor size? And can it be converted over to a 3.3?

    Also, what is a good direct drop in screamer for it?

    Thanks.

    Not yet :/ The jato 3.3 rollbar idea was pretty good, but I think it will bend very easily unless I make it layered and use a different structuring technique.

    Lol, was that a typo or do you not like them?

    Back to the topic: that's a great find! Certainly a better price than a 20-30 dollar clear body plus 6-18 dollars worth of paint, if you ask me.
