Well, the Traxxas gods smiled upon me. I found someone willing to trade a rtr 2.5r TMaxx for 2tamiya dark impact buggies (1 rtr 1 a roller). Took it out today and realized how much I've missed nitro. It's been about 4 years. This thing seems like a tank. Just have to get the 2nd gear to shift. But, hope you all don't mind a question or 2 every once in a while?
