    Installed Hot Racing steering assembly, Hot Racing shock damper, graphite fin, and Pro-Line Road Rage wheels. Still need to put the Hot Racing steering knuckles and the ESC fan. That will all have to wait until next week though. Flying out to FL tomorrow

    That should be a good gearing to start. Keep track of the temp both outside and the motor/Esc. Then go from there, on. A 2 cell you should be fine except on tall grass!

    Thanks ArmySSG! I think the t-bone will be great for bashing. It doesn't add a lot of weight either!

    the car looks great!!
    don't worry about gearing for the titus wheels (i'm sure you didn't get the crawler weights added in there so it will be fine)
    the heavier weight of the bead locks gives more torque when doing mid air stunts and flips

    oops...you forgot to install the wheelie bar for the t-bone ....careful with 3s until you get one

    Finally found a spot for the fan. It actually hits the ESC and motor. Let me know what you guys think!

    Jimbo once mentioned that any aftermarket servo saver was a waste and worse than stock.

    I like the look of all the HR stuff and it has been as good as anything else aluminum. The steering assembly has been fine, no problems yet. I ordered the ******* 3800 servo and the S2V Sidewinder with the 5700kv motor. Should be all put back together within a week or two!

    That's one slick looking Merv.

    Grats on the build too, they're a blast to do.

    Any details on that servo you picked out? (******* 3800)
