    rpm arms
    waterproof sidewinder

    I will wait on the arms until the stock ones break

    I upgraded before I broke. It would ruin the ride and everyone else would keep riding and you would be left out!

    so i took out my merv today and did some speed runs with one 2s lipo and boy it is very fast. i noticed it is very unstable but i had the the preloads way up so next time i will lower them. I also am very happy with the dirt hawgs, i can plug in a fully charged battery and lift it off the ground and go full speed and the tires only grow about a 1/8 inch or less. Another cool thing is the dirt hawgs have no hole to let water in so i do not have to worry about water soaked tires.

    Water does not always enter just through the tires... there are usually holes in the rims.
    Whatever it is I just said... I could be wrong.

    i have drove it a lot and flipped it a bunch but where i drive it is usually on ice with a little snow so it does not leave marks plus it is hard to get any speed anywhere except the road for lack of traction. lots of sliding though and with the offset tires it is hard to flip. Cant wait until the snow is gone so i can bash

    does anybody know why with the new esc you turn it off by unplugging it, I am in a habit of pressing the button to turn it off.

    I think it is because the button can start to get stuck after a while. I think it is just to help prevent it. Unplugging it to turn it off just cut the number of times it has to be pushed in half.

    I really like the new tqi controller that came with my car. It fits really well in my hand and is very light but i have this nasty habit of leaving it on because the light that tells you when it is on is not as bright and it is sunken into the controller so it is hard to see unless you look at it straight on.

    so i have been watching some videos of the merv jumping and i have been wondering how big of jumps can a stock merv handle with out breaking anything? Can not wait for the snow to melt so i can get enough speed to do some good jumps.

    That's a good question. My friends merv was doing some good jumps probably 6ft high and maybe 20ft with no problems. I was hitting 28 of the same jump

    hey just a question, would running in 2 wheel drive make it faster and also allow for a higher gear ratio?

    Not really...
    Running it in 2WD would make it almost completely uncontrollable at speed.

    is there any benefit to running lipo batteries in parallel vs just on pack at a time because i was planning on running one at a time to save weight and i might put the speed controller in the other battery box
