    Haha, Yeah before I placed my order, I was between the blue or the green, flipped a coin and green won it.

    Well, got as far as taking it out of the box, Took a few other pic's, and couple outside, As you can see we have some snow out there LOL, Even know it's waterproof and all, I usually don't run my stuff in the wet or mud, and such. I'll probably screw around in the house with it for now. My buddy has a vacant warehouse where we do some indoor running during the winter, might go there this weekend.

    16oz Monster can:



    The stock battery is tight enough in there, Gonna order a SPC 2s or the Traxxas 2s though,+ change to TRX connector.



    Shot of the servo set-up.


    Rear wheel and hex off, It's nice to see bearings all around.


    Front wheel off.


    Out on the snow pile.

    Not really sure to be honest, I have only ran it indoors around the house, with stock battery, seems pretty quick, I mean for what it is.

    I figured everyone would have blue or red. Mine fell in the toxic waste and glows a bit now

    Sorry, been out of town a couple of days. I mounted green LEDs on the rear body posts to make the body glow. The front/rear lights are in the bumpers, just had to drill out a bit for the bezels.

    Well guys, I put my Teton up in the market place.

    Kinda more or less bought it on a impulse for the winter time blues. Used it for two battery packs indoors thats it.

    Goin back to work here soon, and just dont see me using it much, I was even thinking going brushless, but thought about it and decided I have my 1/10th scale stuff which I prefer anyway, and some vintage projects I still need to get done.

    Fun little truck for the little time I used it. But I'd rather see it go to someone whos gonna actually get more use out of it.

    If this thing came brushless i bet people wouldnt be selling it. I think traxxas should have just released it with a brushless motor for $200 all together.

    Well I have no complaints with it, and not selling it due to non-brushless, That there is just a upgrade and part of the fun.

    My reason is, I know I wont use it, seeing I like the 1/10th stuff, and this was my first taste of 1/18th. Like I said great little truck for what it is stock. Just not really MY cup of tea.

    If you add more stickers, it will make it even faster

    True story, they say intelligent people purchase green vehicles. Notice I do not have a green one lol.
