    Nice start! Take your time and snag as many deals as possible. No sense in rushing to finish cuz you'll end up over paying. Good luck and keep us posted.

    well its not one of these "big specialized builds" like some people do im just going to slowly keep changing parts and get it to suit my needs as the time arises instead of spending a bunch of money and still wanting to change something so ill do it as it fits my needs

    well i swapped the shocks and threw a set of tires on although i dont have any electronics in but the suspension is to heavy duty and is putting a bind on the end of the drive shafts when i try to turn em by hand so if i tried to do it without more weight so im going to have to run the stock shocks until i can pick up a set of either prolines or traxxas big bores but either way i unfortunatly my 1/8 scale shocks just wont work without tearing my driveline apart.



    stuck a lil tub of icy hot i had sitting on my coffee table to show how high up it stuck it with 1/10 sct wheels.

    That's what it's about. Every bodies different, we all want it to our spec. That's the best part is seeing different builds or mods. It also helps me chose what I need. Personally, I want something semi-fast and bullet proof. Something my nephews, nieces and I can have fun with. I'm sure the other adults are going to want to jump in on the fun. Image that, a herd of P4des!

    You could do the nitro fuel tube mod inside the shocks to make them shorter. They'll still be nice and smooth.

    so i got great news and not so great news. i got the Pede up and running i was just outside freezing my fingers off to test it out. i was outside popping wheelies with one of my 1/16th scale lipos so i didnt have to long to play but either way shes up and running. but now for the bad news. i need a new servo or to rebuild the one i got but im thinking of just upgrading to a higher torque servo. so now for recommendations for the best servo for the pede. but now on the list is a new set of tires since im running a set of slash tires. a new shell to make it look amazing and the servo. so im up for ideas and suggestions. also need some nice lipos and i got my eye on a couple 6500 50c spc lipos.

    I run promatchracing 3s 5200 50c and they are awesome. And I'm not sure the exact model(I can check when I get home) but i use a high torque metal gear hitec servo

    Not an inexpensive servo at 55 bucks, but has more than enough torque for your truck and is fully submergible up to one meter. Its digital, has metal gears and can take up to 7.4 volts.
