    Just bit the bullet and......

    Ordered a new Rustler VXL plus a bunch of RPM upgrades. Gotta say im pretty excited to get back into RC! My last vehicle was a 2.5R original revo and was a bit of a nightmare for me to keep running so i decided to keep away from nitro this time. I have a 5800mah 2S 40~80C Lipo Pack here ready for it to arrive!

    Now all there is to do is watch the tracking report as it makes it way from USA --> Australia!

    Congrats on the purchase mate!, You'll have no end of fun with the Rustler - and with all the things that one can upgrade on them, it's sure to become an addiction! .

    I order most of my stuff from A Main in the US of A, where did you get the Rusty if you don't mind me asking?. A Main is pretty good with postage and times, eg under a week most times.

    The electric systems have come a long way over the last few years - there is so many to choose from and the power/speed is ridiculous!.

    Well it arrived today and as it was almost dark so i just chucked on the included NiMH on my charger and it charged fully in about an hour. So i give it a quick go in the backyard on short grass and wow........ im very impressed. This thing rips!!! (as if you guys didn't know that already). I cant wait to take it down to the massive industrial complex car parks near my house this weekend and give the 2s lipo a bash!

    So glad to be back in this hobby with a brushless vehicle. Good riddance nitro!

    EDIT: Loving the RWD too, i used to love that about my mates S-MAXX.
