Chris p.s You have a great looking car their hope when i get mine can eventually lokk like that lol.
Thanks again. I cant wait till traxxas releases the alum. turnbuckles. I also have some black rims with red nuts ordered too. Here are the traxxas turnbuckles.
To answer your questions. Yes it does have a dvd and a nice full color manual. It is a great truck for a beginner as long as you run in open areas because it is FAST. Yet it handles its speed very well and jumps extremely level. Ive heard nothing but bad things about tunning the TRX2.5 but it has been no trouble at all. The low speed needle is a little more sensetive than most but once its set your ready. Run Traxxas top fuel and stick by the books and youll be fine. If you need any help just ask.
You really wont need any performance parts for a while. It already has plenty of power for a newbie and a racer. I added the head because Im near Miami Florida and today its 94F and its still MAY!!
The GTR shocks are great I just replaced them for looks only. I would get some socks for your shocks though. Re-building shocks isnt fun and the socks cut down on rebuilds by 1/4.
Thanks again for the comments. Ill post some more pics when the rest of my red alum and wheels show up. Im gonna make it the red and black spiderman truck. I figured a theme would be cool. Ive owned 4 Nitros and all were solid aluminum before I sold them. This one has a long way to go
