Been into electrics since before it was cool (think 1200mah NiCD), and last night I was poking through craigslist when I saw a Revo 3.3 for $80. I'm a sucker for the Revo platform, so I talked to the guy a bit and ended up taking it home. I know that is a bit dangerous with nitros (particularly since he had no fuel so I could see it run), but he said it ran well and I decided to take his word for it.
I figured even if it didn't run, many drivetrain parts would work on my E-Revo, and I could part out the rest. Nonetheless, I went over to the hobby shop and picked up a couple new a-arms (two were broken) and a quart of 20%. Hooked up a battery to the EZ start and gave it a shot. Took a while to prime the fuel lines (my god this thing has a lot of fuel line), but after a quick search on this forum I discovered the tip about covering the exhaust outlet. Once I got some fuel to the carb, it fired right up.
Headed to work now but I'll get a couple of pictures up later.
Any advice once I get the electronics and everything set up? Still haven't decided if I'm keeping it, but for now I'm having fun tinkering.
