    Ordered
    RPM A arms
    More diff shims(have 2front 2 rear but think I could fit another one in the rear)
    T-bone front bumper
    hing pin backups.. Ironically lost two of the fronts today but just made my own using allen keys
    Front bumper mount/body post(broke last weekend)
    backup half shafts

    So far its stock other than RPM knuckles

    I also discovered that it is alot of fun to play with on the golf course behind my house(sand bunkers are awesome/need some paddle tires).

    Looks good erx!!!

    I just bought new battery doors for my merv. I cut the front of them to run my wires out the front instead of the rear. I took way too much off tho so my balance plug keeps coming out of the battery tray.

    That is really nice to hear. I'm still loving my skid plate and bumper set.

    We seem to be the cartwheeling kings and break that spoiler a bunch. Boiling did seem to help.

    I just got a velineon 3500 in the mail for my merv. It is massive! Its bigger than the castle 1/10 motors! Only problem is the bullet connectors arent 4mm like on the SV2 so now im waiting on 4mm bullet connectors before i can test it out! lol.

    It's a fantastic motor! For bashing in the water I always use it instead of my Orion. Runs super cool with big tires and high gearing!

I also ordered lexan scissors so i dont hack the bodys up like i did with the first one i tried painting. I also ordered some 80wt shock fluid and CA glue.

    I just mounted my velineon 3500 in my merv! Gonna test it out tomorrow afternoon! I dont think ill be too impressed tho. The castle 1406 will probably go back in shortly.

    Just test drove my merv with the velineon 3500. And i think im gonna keep the velineon 3500 in my merv! It feels like it has just as much power as the castle 1406 but its noticeably smoother than the 1406. I also think it runs cooler than the 1406!

    I went through 4 servos before I ordered the 390. I ordered mine two weeks ago and the tracking number says it's on the East Coast. Not bad considering it's coming from Hong Kong.
