    Testing a new thunder power 2s 1800 65c battery so far so good was looking for a battery I could jam with that I didn't have to run parallel. Ran the same speed with it as I did running some boost batteries (not fully charged) in parallel. Ran 5mph faster than my single spc battery

    I'm a bit ashamed to say I've got a box full of about everything! I could build a new Merv with what I've got. Between ebay, Tower Hobbies, The Toys and A-Main Hobbies, I've about got it all. Maybe I should say, THEY'VE about got it all; my money that is!

    Might build another merv. Only need a few parts receiver, hinge pins and those triangle braces. That will still leave me plenty of spare parts!

    Yeah, there's enough places with 4-5 day delivery to make it worth it on the net. Sometimes you can get what you need with Amazon Prime and it's there in 2 days!

    Do it! Then show it after you bash it!

    I have extra neu motor bearing after putting baca ceramics in there making it more efficient than it already was!
    Found a 35a esc for the black 5200kv motor that will be spare worthy!

    since i dont break anything i dont keep anything on hand but its a bad habit sometimes but the parts i did have were stock parts so didnt need those but i do need to get like a diff rebuild kit, diff seal kit, those are needed as i dont like to wait for those.
