    I can't use all of the 2.5 either. If I get one of the rear wheels off the ground the tire instantly mohawks and usually breaks the glue bead on the tire.

    I have a 2.5 in mine, and it is hard to handle. I had to upgrade tires so that I could get some traction. (which meant I just had to get the 2.8" wheels and some Talons... )

    I'd say the nitro pede. Even if you decide you don't like the nitro, you can use the larger chassis on it for an electric project. Plus, the nitro stampede is a lot of fun with a 2.5!

    What I would do first is contact a machine shop. They should be able to shoot a heli-coil in the carb for you for much less than the cost of a new carb.
