    Cool Big Block MERV

    This was my first test run with the big block in my merv. Made the truck so much more fun! Check out the vid.

    Sounds like your gear mesh is a little tight.

    It may be a little tight. I did use the paper test and it felt right. I will check it again today.

    Hey fast is fast, love the short pop wheelies. (I'd hate to be your gears, LOL)

    The plastic that parts come in works good for the mesh setting too, some paper is too stiff. (Not the bags that hold bodies, the bags that hold shims, screws, etc...)

    Thanks man. I love it now with the VXL 3500kv it is so fast. And the run times are great.

    Nice driving! I never could get the hang of drifting, but you seem to have it down

    Thanks man. I have a lot of time driving rc to get to the where I can control a drift. And I still am working on trying new things. And keep in mind this is with no gryo.
