    Thumbs up 16 year old Street Sport do for some TLC...

    Just finished re-oiling the rear shocks fronts were good... and found my old Novak Reactor and bought a Titan 550 12T... Love it, it screams better then the Trinity 12T Speed Gem i had bf... coming up Novak Smart-Stop Auto-Detect Module & a Traxxas LiPo 2S 7.4V 7600mAh 25C, cant wait to see what it will do.

    nice. thanks for sharing.

    with all these touring cars out there im suprised that traxxas has not revamped this rc, or the electrc 4-tec. it sucks to see those go away, because i had to buy a crappy off brand for my bigger drifting desire. i am watching fleabay for the electric 4-tec, and i plan a sweet brushless build.
    I'm not krazy. My mother had me tested.

    Very nice! Be careful with the spur, is extremely hard to get if you damage it...

    Those were great ESCs, and I agree on the memories.

    GmoneyGrip: Any chance that you've taken a video of this car running over the past year or so? I had a Street Sport at one time, but I never put a low turn motor in it.
