Very new to the world of rc.... (flicking through ebay one day and thought it looked a laugh).
I too bought the Conquistador and yeah, I'm really glad I did. Not sure about the 'cheap' bit though. Have spent a small fortune on hop-ups and upgrades.
Aluminium shock towers
Aluminium front bulkheads
Aluminium servo saver
Aluminium steering knuckle arms
Aluminium tuned pipe
Hardened spur gear
8.35:1 Clutch gear (as opposed to the standard 10.44:1)
Race ball bearings throughout
Bonkers performance now!
Well worth the extras.
