    1/16 from scratch? Cost to do so?

    I have high hopes of building a merv and i really want to but the question is how much would it cost?
    and what do I start with when it comes to building. I am not very familiar with the merv so I need advice on anything to do with it

    best bet would be to find a roller for cheap and build off of that

    And depending if u want it upgraded or stock.. I'd say if u built it stock, and got a roller to build from, including the roller at very least $200

    if i was to get another merv i would build it from scratch. so many of the stock parts arent very good. a-arms, servo, toe-links/pushrods, steel balls, tires, body, esc and motor (stock is strong but temps get a little high for me) just to name a few
