    Well, I bought a MERV a month sooner than planned


    Yep. Here it is Nicely modded for $350









    Mods list:
    Castle creations element brushless ESC
    Castle 3900kv brushless 540 motor Big block
    Big block mount
    Rpm arms all around
    The Toys wheels and tires
    Rpm front bumper
    Wheelie bar
    Aluminum integy rocker arms
    Differential shimmed

    Illusions custom body with led lights front and rear all green

    Besides the LED's I'm psyched....
    But now I gotta get a charger and batteries quick! Sellers hookin me up with a NIMH bat and charger, and a lipo. Unfortunately the charger is NIMH only so I have to get a Lipo charger ASAP.

    Still gonna buy some SPC lipos, when they are back in stock on the 14th

    might I suggest some stiffer springs.. I see the fronts are pre loaded about to their max! And what is on the body running up the windshield pillars?

    It looks like skid bars for the body or LEDs.

    Just asked the seller because I never noticed that and its 2 makeshift metal bars, essentially a mini rollcage for the body. Nice!

    But I just realized something. That ESC doesn't have that low voltage sensor like on traxxas ESC's...how am I going to know when I gott kill the truck??? I don't want to over discharge my battery, as I've read thats a life ender for a battery...

    I saw that myself...honestly, I think it'll be fine because 1, they are as stiff as can be, and I tend to do a hybrid of bashing and speed runs, and 2, it has a wheelie bar, so I could care less about how much it bottoms out when I punch the throttle.

    I put my pede on the stiffest spring possible, and it was great! And it didn't have a wheelie bar. I'm sure this revo will be the same..

    I might get some Integy piggyback shocks though..hmmm

    I would skip the piggybacks, all I hear is they leak.

    Try GPMs setup or like 50 said the HR shock bodies

    Don't forget that the GPM shocks do not allow the suspension to fully bottom out which really strains the rest of the suspension parts.
