    Went to put the 16 tooth pinion on to find out i ordered the wrong pitch. Ran down 3 cyles of 2-2s lipos . Watched a 2.2 mudslinger role about 40 ft away from my merv while it was still going. 3 wheeling lol. Went to pick up some temp nuts for wheels and managed to almost finish off the stock servo . If this had metal gears theyd be awesome. Mudslinger beadlocked and no foam much more control than i thought id have

    Nice merv! what kind of motor and esc are you using? Oh, and I live near Baltimore and I don't know of any RC tracks or really open spaces to do speed runs. Could you help me out?

    Will this thread ever end? I made my Revo a "Hybrid". It can convert from bashing, racing, gymkhana, rally and rallycross, short-course, and a camera (GoPro HERO2) rig all with just some suspension and tire changes.
    And there he goes with the carbon...

    Sat in front of it with it on the stand...trying to decide what bumpers and wheelie bar I want to run...and what other stuff I want to upgrade(there's not much left,lol)

    So far the only things set in stone are adding the center diff,and getting a new wing mount(not sure if i want plastic or GA Aluminum) and a CF wing.
    Also getting a Proline VW Bug body and painting it 2 tone red/black.

    I live in Dundalk and usually drive to an undisclosed location to rip. I sometimes go to an indoor offroad track at Middle River Hobbies in Essex area. Motor is a trinity epic 4x4 short course 3750kv 550 paired with a Mamba Max Pro with 39/45 gears and either a pair of 2s or 3s in series for 4s offroad bash and 6s inroad speed running. Pm me if you'd like to get together sometime. I have a nitro buddy. I own both.

    Lowered it with Rally shocks and installed the Ofna wing.
    Stuck the Proline Speed Hawg tires on a set of spare wheels just to see what it looks like until my blakc HPI Split 5 wheels come in.
    Decided on a different body(gonna put the Baja on the Summit)

    Gotcha...was just an observation. I love the blue rpm arms...I think im about to order a set for mine.
    Who knows...might add the matching bumpers too and take my lighted Summit bumpers off.

    Yesterday I set it up with the stock "high speed" gearing and 2 NiMHs in series for the first time. Today I stared at it contemplatively, wondering if the rear end not being attached to the chassis (for the second time in 2 weeks) was a message from higher powers. something along the lines, "Yes getting that much air was cool, however in the brickwall vs plastic car battle the wall always wins...dumb___".

    I took it for a burn at the (Club's) R/C Track, for the first time ever! It was awesome and I can't wait to go back.



    Went with the sister in law, and her partner (the photograper).
