So I bought my 1/16 Summit VXL a couple months ago. I love this thing. I read all over the forums about driveshafts breaking, but I have literally not had one thing go the least bit wrong. Well, the steering servo burnt out within the first week, but traxxas gives you a free 30 day warrantee on those things. Took it back to my retailer and they replaced it for free. I've run at least 10 packs of 3s lipo and no problems at all. At this point I'm starting to upgrade things just for looks. I originally wanted to do some 2.2 bead locks but man those cost a fortune. So I went to my hobby shop and bought myself $18 of spray paint. Viola
A can black for the rims and a can of red for the locknuts. A can of matte finish for the both. Lemme know what you think. Also I was at a local yard sale and I found this!
It's a new bright(ish) hard body and it fits perfectly. I haven't drilled holes or anything for body posts yet... I'm thinking about putting it for sale on eBay. If anybody is interested I will post a link to the listing. More
To come soon, I just bought a silverado body and I have some idea for painting it. Thanks everybody. More to come
Just a few more pics
