    ITS HERE ITS HERE!!! HOLY MOTHER OF GOD, this thing FLIES!!! Wow!!

    Couple of things..
    1) So i have that Cog issus, seems kinda ..whatever.. a minor nuisance at best- i have 30 days to evaluate, if it gets worse, maybe ill call.. if not.. i can definitly deal with it..
    2) It seems like the throttle is more sensitive to revers than forward, ill mess with the ESC to see how i can dial it in better.
    3) I need those lights.. It would looks soo cool!!!
    4) The last traxxas i've owned was a 1st Gen T-Maxx.. This suspension is incredible..hard to beleive that much movement can be achieved with those tiny shocks.. Incredible..
    4) Tenergy Hard Case 1800 bats fit absolutely perfect!!!

    Im still in awe, it literally lifts the wheels and goes right onto its back at midthrottle.. jeez!!! Loving it! This thing quite literally RIPS!

    So thrilled right now!!

    I gotta do the lights!

    I absolutely love mine. The only thing I have done is put teflon tape in the rear diff. The front diff still needs some work. I've been running it on 7.2V. I don't see a reason for 11.1V. I may pickup a 9.9V kit. It's plenty fast enough for me and my needs. Granted a 8T isn't the best choice for slow off road use. I may gear it down. Sometimes it's fun get it on some pavement or loose gravel and cut it loose. I primarily take mine off road and nice and slow driving.
    Current labor of love.

    I didn't have any Silly Putty or I would use it. I am putting it into the rear diff to achieve a locked rear end. I just have a ton of tape laying around.
