i'm newbie,i live in belgium and i'm 15 years old, so sorry for my bad englisch.
i own a merv since november 2011 ,it was my first rc car , and i love it.
now it is time to post some stuf about hte tings i have done to my merv.
but remember; i'm a child and i only get 16 euro ( 20 dollar) a month every so for every upgrade i have to wait a month or two.
november; finnelly got my merv, i wanted a rc car since al long time but i never found a good rc manefacturer untill my friend,who owns a rustler told my about traxxas and that their was a hobby store nearby.
so i went to the lhs and bougt an merv vxl
december;i still driving on nimh and i love it ( now i find nimh sooooo boring)
i'm driving on the street and i smashed with 30 mph against a pale with my front right wheel,
i broke the upper a-arm and my wheel (picture commin soon)
my friend repaired my a-arm and i was ready to race again, i upgraded to a maxxtraxx 2s lipo,
and i bought i skyrc charger, im very happy wiyh the charger,it charges fast and safe
at the end of december i broke my servo,so i upgrades to a *******390
i ordered the red rpm a-arms front and rear as well.
januari : new year! yupi! the front rpms arrived the 2 of januari and
i also bought a 3 pcs t-bone , the best upgrade i ever did! it protects realy well , if i hadnt bouht it,i woud have broke 10 bulkheads and 5 chasiss
i didnt like the red color of the a-arms and the rear a-arms only arrived the end of januari.
the rpms are sure one of the best upgrades; i never broke them and they are light.
februari; birthday ! received jconcepts goose bumps on rulux wheels, 50 wt diff oil , 40 wt shock oil and tan springs front,pink springs rear.
the goose bumps are very good,the have almost 200 % more grip then the stock ones and the rulux are very light and stong.
with the new shocks and oil,my merv rocks.
march : i ordered a gpm aluminium spoiler because my stock one is trashed up.
never buy this if you bash! it sucks! the sides come of and you and the carbon brakes, and i you wheelie on the street, the black paint came of.
after a jump;
with my friend who owns a rusty,we ordered black rit dye and we dyed my red rpm a-arms, revo chasis,rockers, rusty chasis,rusty bulkheads.
it turned out very well for our first rit dye job.
this is how i looked like at the end of februari:
on the right is my *******390 servo with some black tape to make it a little bit waterproof en to make i look beter
