    Yep. Another way to think about it is that the steering becomes "drive by wire" (even more than it really is). With a more advanced heading lock gyro between the steering servo and the receiver, it...

    Warm up the decals with a hair dryer, and press them down (if they're peeling up) before you run the car. The heat can stretch the decal and help it form around curves.

    The only "upgrade" I'd recommend after having my Revo for a couple months is either the wheelie bar, or wing. That is IF you're going to run your revo on pavement. The revo has a lot of power and...
