Anywhere we can get a copy of that review?
The truck looks amazing, very interested in seeing it run.

I'm an electric guy so I don't want to talk too much about the engine as I'm sure 99% of people know more than me - I just know it was easy to start and ran great, didn't go out of tune and had a nice powerband. Sadly I only borrowed it so I'll give it back soon - I bought a cheap .28 (peak diablo) to use, I'm sure I'll do OK with it but not sure it'll be anywhere near as sweet. If I had the choice of course, I'd keep this Novarossi.

I think you can mailorder from Ultimate Hobbies. http://www.ultimatehobbies.com/istar...=TAM49497!1006

So far this truggy has been pretty good. I've had a few front arm issues. Other than that its pretty good.

Note: Make sure you double check your front CVD's at the hub and loctite the allen screw that holds the pin. I loctite'd mine and they still came loose and the pin stuck out one side and ate up both my front aluminum hubs. Kinda sucks because I'm pretty sure those hubs aren't cheap. Gonna try and find some heat shrink and cut it just enough to cover the pin and hold them in place.

+1. Both of my front CVD's let go, effectively "machining" my front hubs before loosing the pins completely. I have since done the heatshrink tubing and so-far, so-good.

Now I've got to figure out how to protect the front A-arms.
