Picked up a used one and have some questions.
It's not in bad shape really, the tires are the only thing that show any wear.
Anyway, it came with two Venom 4200 7 cells packs that I beleave are junk.
When fully charged I only get 2-3 minutes run time out of them and one got too hot to handle when chargeing. I've read the 4200 packs have a reputation for explodeing so they'll probably be disposed of.
I've got two ***** 2C 5000 Lipos I bought to run in my SLASH and then found out we're limited to NiMH 4600's in the stock class.
So with the Lipo's, what kind of run times should I expect?
Also, with my SLASH I know the weak parts are shock caps and hub carriers.
I have no idea on the REVO. What should I upgrade for durability?
Not looking for bling, just parts to make it more durable.
I keep extra RPM hub carriers in my box for the SLASH (broken 2 already).
What should I stock up on for the REVO?
Should I upgrade the chassis,skid plates?
A buddy of mine has an older nitro REVO and said at a skate park he was jumping his from 10 ft high and had no problems at all till he ran into a parked Toyota pickup going full steam and snapped the chassis in half.
Thanks for the help guys.
