    Look at you reciever. It has two places to plug in channel 1. Why I am not sure unless it is for a truck with dual ESCs'. You should plug in to the second number 1 with your steering and channel 2...

    Wow! 16/86 by my math gives you a 5.37 gear. Ought to have loads of power! You can probably pull some pretty big tires with that gear. I'll bet you run the wheelie bar!

    That is a Tacon motor that I bought to use while my Velinion was out of commission. I got my Velinion back but like the Tacon because it actually runs cooler and seems to have a smoother take-off or...

    No modifacation but it is 14/58 not 54. My adjustment is right in the middle. Really like the 32p though. No cover necessary so I can see the mesh and I can also see the slipper pads. I think they...

    +1 for the VXL. You can put it in trainer mode which puts it at 50% power and let him run free. Then you get it and go sport mode and have a ball too!

    I just take the wife to wallyworld, give her a credit card and go to the back and run all I want! Law came back once but just watched. Wide open back there and usually no-one in sight.
