    The blue bearing seals, dust boots and motor mount are really killing the truck. Do something about this fool

    I got two JR Z9100Ts for $100 fresh from a factory refurb and now they are going to get kicked to the curb as I got a sweet deal on another pair of brand new ones. JR Z9100HVT and JR Z9100HVS, both for $200. I really like the Z9100HVT, have it in my on road ERBE and was building my off road ERBE with a pair of the JR Z9100T's for 740oz of torque!

    Just dyed a new chassis I picked up for cheap from an ebay chop shop auction. Took longer than expected and still not really impressed with the outcome. I was expecting it to be more black than it is. Has a purple tinge to it in contrast to the stock black parts. Cant complain though as I got the chassis with the battery doors, servo guards, battery vents and shock towers still on it for $8.
    Decisions, decisions!

    Looks real nice But, can I ask why you went with such a big bec? That has the power to run 3 of my cars with everything powered up... Looks very sharp though.
