my buddy decided to pick up a merv. after checking two local hobby shops who were both sold out, we were informed that they no longer stock them, and will have to be special ordered. after searching around he found a place that had one left. happy at first with his new purchase, he noticed right away that his wasnt like mine. he had this long blue tube protruding through his roof, as well as a stripped down transmitter that was missing a knob and a few buttons.

so what gives? did I just happen to get lucky and get the best generation of merv - the 7107? I have to shake my head at Traxxas. or maybe my FIST !!
