    so why the e-revo shell than the revo 3.3 platinum shell? Yea the Ross unit would be awesome for a basher. I may do the mod myself when I get another revo.

    That's just down to personal taste ManDime, I like the the truggy/buggy look and plus I have another Monster Truck so wanted this one to be different, I've always liked the the E-Revo but not an electric fan, love the noise of nitro too much

    ahh ok. I'm only into electric because its cheaper when you find a good deal. Sorry, didn't mean to sound rude. I do like the truggy looks as well like the mugens and xrays that are raced locally.

    No no not at all ManDime never thought you was being rude, I started off on electric when I was younger but fell in love with the nitro engines

    yea I started with a cheap electric, then I went with the revo then to brushless. Now I want to go gas but I don't know if that will go through. Anyway, I'll definitely be following your thread!

    That reminds me also need to pick up a wheelie bar think I need it with this engine is the Traxxas wheelie bar worth getting?
    I read one guy said comes off the mount depending how you land, want to kow if this is just one persons bad experience as they look pretty decent?

    The traxxas wheelie bars are usually great for me even though I haven't used a revo one. To me I can't go without because then you end up destroying the back bumper and the body.

    Just come across a bit of a hiccup looks like the ERCM pipe won't fit as easily as I thought looks like header will need modding and will be longer than ERCM suggested plus mounting hole is too small, a bit of a error in my eyes especially when you spend $155 this should be more of a custom fit without modding, hope header doesn't effect tuning and performance.
