    probly cheaper just going with the 3908. but the one for sale out does a 3908 with more stuff.

    heck my 3903 cost 398 bucks. then the 209 bucks for a hobbywing 150amp combo. then the white progressive springs for i think i paid ten bucks on ebay. then 86 bucks for 2 lipos. there is the price of a 3908.
    I'm not krazy. My mother had me tested.

    It's more than that, the 3908 has the tqi 2.4 radio, single motor plate, 2075 servos, and the included wheelie bar.

    I put the brushless edition motor and a mamba monster esc in my 3905 and you would never know it was initially a brushed model.

    thats what i was thinking looking at the e revo brushed as well it runs 14mm hex's. so thats another thing you will incurr on costs for wheels 17mm and hex's too, then single motor mount and other things. I would say just pick up a roller 3908 like i did i got mine with RPM skids only upgrade and front RPM bumper for 230shipped a little high but its was only used a handful of times only

    build it from scratch! you can use your tmaxx hexes and wheels if you use the stock axles or traxxas cvd's.
