    Haha I know right!
    @sean thanks dude I can't wait to run it.

    @humay I actually have not bought an esc, but the seller on ebay says he will have Et-3s esc later this week. I am really leaning towards that, at 60 dollars its hard to beat.

    you can tame the ESC manually thru transmitter, its a bit complicated cause you have to listen/count every beep. you can look it up with their driver's ed booklet.

    USB castle link is the way to go, you can see every changes you made in front of you.

    Yes I know ! It's insane how fun these little things are. I can honestly say I like being on road a little bit more than off. Being my I take my 2wd anywhere but after using that for a couple weeks now with no rally, is really making me miss it!

    I actually took off my heatsink after I got everything installed, it kept moving all over the place and it actually came loose one time and scratched my amazing red strc center driveshaft...

    The red theme you have going looks good!

    You could lower your body a bit, or is that for big Air running?

    Oh no its just my suspension wasn't compressed at all and my body wasn't on perfectly lol.

    Yeah I was upset how I couldn't find red 17mm adapters, but I really want to dye my chassis but thinking about taking it all apart... has me feeling lazy! haha plus I still dont have a tool set only stock allen keys, and my hands are all cramped after 20 minutes.

    lol Raphael hiding in my car, No Im not 12 years old but I love ninja turtles!

    STRC makes red 17mm adapters. I was running a set until I went to the MIP 17mm adapters.

    I was told those weren't good? That's why I didn't buy them.

    They are not as nice as the Traxxas ones, but for the color, they work and I had no issues with them. I would use them again, but I will be using 6mm XO-1 adapters.

    Oh wow I should have checked with you first if I would have known. Send em here I'll give them lots of love! Lol .
    Hey btw I'm getting lots of heat with my 2400kv on 3s with 22/50 gearing what's up with that ? I hear people run 25/50 on 4s with no problem. I don't have a temp gun but I can't even put my finger down on it for longer than a Tap.

    Hmm, that is pretty tall gearing, even for a 2400 on 3s. Maybe a bigger fan on the motor?

    So, I haven't touched or upgraded my Rally for a bit so I decided to add some RPM A ARMs.
    All I need to do now is dye my chassis black, but I still dont know how committed I am to taking everything apart. For those of you who do it, how long does it usually take from taking everything apart and dying it and putting it back?
