Ok,First off I have been a strictly Nitro off road guy for 20 years. But, after hearing all you people raving on and on about this brushles phenom I decided to get a Rally. I opened the box today and could not belive how small this thing is. Its tiny. I bought an additional traxxas battery and a series connector. Waited like 2 1/2 hours for them both to charge and swapped out to the larger included pinion gear as per Traxxas recomendations when running two batteries in series. I know this car is designed as kind of a drifter but It was uncontrollable at high speeds. After easing into the throttle til about mid range If i mashed it the rest of the way the car would just do countless 360's until you back off the throttle. If it hit even a crack in the driveway it would bounce up in the air and land sideways and roll over. Frustrating. I did manage to do a couple of controlled drifts which were somewhat fun but overall the experience left me craving my revo. After about 12 minutes the speed began to dwindle and was left thinking ..thats it? Now I know you guys are gonna say get Lipo batteries blah blah blah but it was virtually uncontrollable with the nimh batteries so whats the point? Anyway, gotta say, overall not that impressed. And Im a die hard traxxas guy, but i think i will stick to nitro off road. I actually cant even believe anyone would prefer this, but, thats just my 2 cents.
