I've got a nitro evader ST that's been in pieces for a few years, so it's in good shape, everything should be there, so let me know if you need anything.

These are the pics of it on ebay!

Top view


Bottom view


Box with almost everything!


Box arrived 1 July 2011


Open the box to find out what ill be working with...


Top view of it loosely put together, just tryin to get an idea of where everything went, not bad for my first time putting together a nitro with no instructions.


Motor siting unbolted in...


Side view


I was trying to find out what this was but I eventually figured it out


Self explanatory


Top view of it put together and bolted down


Picture of the piece of crap servo - SMARTECH


RIMS beat to crap also tires are on the wrong rims. Doesn't matter imma probably get new rims and tires once i get this thing running


Back side of rim


It should look mean when I get a body for it


So I tried to get power just to see if the servos worked and I got nothing, so I investigated and discovered this....



So I fixed the problem with my awesome wire skills and now I have power, but the servos that came with it are completely trashed..


The battery wire going into the receiver was poorly fixed that will be next to fix...


I also broke this part so im going to have to temp fix it until I can locate parts


I've got a long list of parts that im going to try to locate and i also need to find 2 servos.... until then stay tuned

Hate to tell you. Once it's together and running you will always be rebuilding it. The tansmition gears strip constantly on it. but a all metal tranny in the drive shafts snap. I would suggest selling it and getting a associated or losi truck and you will have much better luck. Cut your losses befor you loose to much.

Nice project

Why the ribbed tires are installed at the rear?

Not sure that is how it came to me, but the tires and rims are shot altogether so they will be getting replaced

I know I only have the handle and 2 pullstarter housings for it.

I do have the X thing that goes on the servo

I have 2 Duratrax I think SX100 servos that have to go to it...

I have the air filter

I should have linkages

I'll rummage through the bolt bins and see if I can find the others.

I also have the Original wheels (Maybe original tires too) and original body in great shape apart from extra holes.

I'll gather it and PM pictures.
