Hey all, so its me, Jules aka Commander-J from Hamburg/Germany.
I'm a somewhat longtime lurker on this board, recently started to post a bit more here and there.
I felt its time to finally come out with my own build thread now and show my rig.
I had the pictures ready for a while but never managed to write it up and post it all.
As I tested a couple of updates and new parts over the last weeks I want to document the previous setup somehow before posting about new parts.
I got her last may as a nib roller off ebay. It looked like someone has gotten a new MERV, ripped out the motor, esc and 2,4radio and put in a second series1 nimh+wallcharger and an old am radio and put it on ebay the minute later.
I took the chance and bought it. As i pried her of the box, she looked like this:
I was able to resell the included series1 nimhs + chargers and the Traxxas AM radio for a good price.
I later sold all stock parts i wanted to replace anyway. Like receiver box, knuckles, all rods and linkage, a-arms and the shocks. (Later regretted selling the shox) and the servo.
As all parts were brand new they sold well. I manged to get nearly even. Ending up with are really stripped down basic Mini E-Revo that has costed me bare nothing.
Tried to do a build on a budget then and do only reasonable upgrades. As if that was even possible..
So, this it how she sits end march 2012:
