I like the single wheel wheelie bar. Seems to work better than the dual
The Brushlesshobbies 80A Brushless ESC Sensorless Sensored with USB Flash/Programmer
I'm dying to get that ESC myself, but the guy doesnt ship international.
The ARC 28-48-1 as motor.
The JConcept Illusion Hi-Flow body
If you ever plan to get a T-Bone, i would look for the T-Bar as a wheeliebar.
Be careful with HR Linkage, i tested VXS160R02 and they broke after the first run.
If you are talking the VXS160RA01, these might be better. But according to my experience with HR parts, they might be crap as well...
For a 3S battery, i think there a too many options to choose. If you are US-based maybe some SPC, Traxxas or the expensive Boost, or check the US warehouse from the shop that must not be named for some inexpensive ***** or *******'s.
Tires? I'm lost in that area myself..
Just a few suggestions.

Got replacements for my rather worn HR front knuckles. This time i went GPM silver.
I have the same GPM silver in the back already, but these second package seems to have better build quality.
The threads are cut well and it was easy to srew the caps in. My first set has bad threads in them.
Mounted. I throwed some fresh bearings and hexes in. Heading out for test drive now.
very nice cmd-j.. like the axle carriers.. is your old ones wore out?
I have a cool tip! Had to replace my diffs today and shimmed them a little on the tight side then ran a dewalt cordless drill into a cvd, spun the diff for about 5 minutes and it spun easier by the time I was done
WOW good idea thanks!!
By turnbuckles you speak of the the link connecting the rocker arm with the lower a-arm?
That are GPM Steel Rods with plastic ends part no. GPM SERV160. i think i got them from fortuna-racing-cars.de, not sure. thetoyz carries them in the US afaik. There is a lighter Titanium version too, part TERV160.
The lenght is ~65mm from eyelet center to center.
I have limiters in my shocks, maybe they look a bit shorter then in stock config.

Just ordered ~
Traxxas Mini 1/16 Revo Slash Red Aluminum Shock Dampers (item #ERV348 RED) x2
Traxxas Mini 1/16 Slash Bumper & Skid Plate Set (item #62066-5139)
and a friend ordered me a birthday present,
hey jh thought you were checking out those 5" tires and hpi rims? with those you don't need the rockers and could run the traxxas push rods 7118x which are stronger
Ok.. Cool.. So the stock push rods is what your referring to?
FlySky GT3B Tx & Rx, Thunder AC6 charger, 2 ***** 2s 2200Mah 40C lipos, one ***** 3s 1800Mah 20C lipos. Can't wait for my B-Day.
Let me know what u think of those ***** 3s do u have any others to compare them to
No the aluminum Traxxas ones
O ok.. But still stock size right
Yep but with 5" tall tires it will sit high
Yea.. But I could use the rods I got from the toyz.. They're chrome and black.
Thought you were looking for hr pushrods?
I am but I already have the toyz ones and integy ones
They should be fine not a lot of stress on them unless your are doing some killer jumps
Now I am stuck.here waiting for an MRI on my neck
I got the Beadlocks and dirt hawgs, the hawgs balloon like crazy with a 3S
You need to give them a few laps with some good strong tape
tape is perfect for balooning
Clean the inside of the tires with alcohol
My new brushless ESC came in the mail today but the post office wants me to go pick it up, I dashed over today and the mail truck was still carrying it around town. I'm super anxious about tomorrow morning! The case is super to waterproof so I will get plastidip as well.
I like turtles.
Good deal let us know how it goes
what esc did you get
Anybody have a favorite foam tire for their merv? How about a link or part number!
there is a guy on here called gone bananas or go bananas or something like that and he makes the best from what i have heard. search bananas foam tires he's supposed to be the best from what i hear
Got one of these today...
Just bought some new stuff, its been MONTHS so it was pretty awesome to buy some stuff.
I picked this stuff up from the toyz
GPM shocks (the complete sets) front & rear
GH knuckles (just one set to replace the RPMs)
And some bearings for the steering.
Maybe once I get this stuff in it will motivate me to actually work on my car!
* "If it ain't broke, your doin it wrong" *
I dyed my chassis just to give me an excuse to pull it apart and work on it!
Whatever I just said.. I'm probably wrong..
I hear that! I really miss upgrading it and wrenching on it
