so i got my merv today and i am liking it a lot. I am so happy i got the blue and black instead of the red and black. My brother has a 1/16 summit and i thought the merv would be quite smaller but they are actually quite similar. So my goal for this truck is a vehicle capable of long trial rides on smooth surfaces, but still be able to get of the dirt trail and do some jumps. In the spring when the snow is gone i will do a lot of racing around our home made track.
my upgrades so far that i have are
pro-line dirt hawgs on desperados
one 2500mah spc lipo, still have to order the other one.
my list is very short i need other ideas for upgrades, but i do not want to spend a whole lot of money. I have been thinking about making a custom front bumper because the stock one gets real ugly when the chrome chips off. i know the diffs tend to be a problem with this truck so i am going to order some diff shims and more diff oil. i will post up some pics soon. If anybody has suggestions for upgrades for trail driving that would be helpful.
