    MERV Salvation

    Nothing amazing, just thought i'd share my MERV journey so far...

    Bought it wrecked off eBay, and sold some of the extra bits i didn't need, in the end it cost me 80. It already had TQi tx and RPM a-arms all round:








    Then the work started. New chassis (dyed black), dirt hawgs on desperado wheels, some bearings, TQI receiver, stiffer springs and 80wt oil, RPM knuckles f & r, tarted up the body a bit, new wing, Hi-tec servo (86w) and hey presto:





    Next was my recently painted body, wheelie bar, and some temporary lights:











    Still to do:

    fix slight range issue
    thicker shock oil
    shim and re-oil diffs
    oh and actually drive it!!!...
