I am still sitting over here with my fingers crossed lol. About the Grenade has anyone run 1 yet and if so what is it compared to? Does or is it manufactured by some other company and last but not least how much are they I didnt see a price on the site.

We are actually working on a team bag.

Might as well make everything.

On Caster's site I think they are $255 or so. They are selling them for $199 at holeshothobbies.com. I have a friend should be running his grenade this weekend and I should be getting mine in today.

Rabbit,

I would recommend leaning the top needle a bit to get the power you want. Don't be scared, these little motors are far more durable than what we think. I am not familiar with the clutch on these vehicles, but I would also recommend at least 1.0 springs and aluminum shoes. 1.1 springs will create a lot more on the lowend, but I have found these to be too agressive sometimes. It all depends on your motor package. Don't be afraid to run a motor 250-270 degress farenheit. If it has good smoke, you are good to go. Good luck

Adam K.

yes 1.1 springs will def bring any more to life...my question to you is this the rtr model? if so maybe a better pipe along with stiffer springs will help you put down more power

I would try leaning it out. If you were just breaking it in and it is pretty new it is probably running way rich. You could also try replacing the glow plug. I have seen some bad ones not let the motor rev out and make the truck go slow.

To tell if you have a RTR you will have plastic chassis braces with a turnbuckle in the middle and/or dogbones in your rear axles and center driveshafts and CVD's only in you front axles. You will also have plastic rear toe blocks.
