Yea that is how I received it from the seller, plus they have the back tires on the front rims and the front tires on the back rims lol, it doesn't bother me though because the rims are cracked and junk and are going to be replaced. I haven't ran it yet i'm still waiting on some parts! Ill be sure to post a vid when I get mine up and running.

I picked up an Evader ST from a buddy who didn't break in the motor properly and now it won't run. Motor doesn't have compression. Ended up finding a mounted but never run motor on ebay and hoping to have that in soon.

This is my first nitro R/C car - Heard some mixed things about these machines so hopefully I don't have to put any other money into it.

What would be the most common spare parts to have on hand with this specific model?

No. Rear tower humps are to far forward. I ran a Lodi xxx-Nt on mine back in the day.

That was my only real concern, the front body mounts looked to be located about the same. I'll have to check out the Losi bodies, thanks

Do you guys know if the exader parts are interchangeable? I saw a set of evader ext2 wheels that i thought would look great on my evader st would that work?

How do you guys keep your truck clean i can't avoid mine being a huge mess after a few times around in the dirt. Thanks

The easiest way to keep it clean is a air compressor - blast off all the dirt/grime in seconds

If that's not readily available for you there are some aerosol cans of compressed air/degreaser at the local hobby shops. If I'm not at home I usually hit it with a spray of electro contact cleaner for a quick job
