hey guys! i was just wondering what a good place to look for great hop-ups for the nitro vee would be, or even custom ideas that you guys hav tried and u hav found to work really well.
anyways, this is my nitro vee so far. i found it in the trash and had to bondo up a lot of cracks in the hull. i also included a brand new TQ3 3 channel system to operate a remote start(glow plug operated by AAA1.5V battery, starter motor operated by 6 cell 7.2V NiMh RC18T rechargeable battery). in the pictures the battery isnt hooked up but u can see the new traxxas nigh output plugs where it would be plugged in, and also the blue micro servo that operates a regular industrial switch. the spring i used that goes ontop of the switch is actually a spring from the blue glow plug wire soddered to a cut to size push rod.
im thinking about taking the 2.5 off of my nitro rustler and putting it in this, but i think i will be happy with this as soon as i get it in the water.
