I run pro line bow ties on my 2wd slash, they should work pretty good on the 4wd, I've been tempted to try the bow fighters they just came out with...

Thanks to Anthony for running the races and all the guys who help keep the track driveable...
Yes it was not bad for my last one for a year!!! Gives me enough time to rebuild everything. I want to thank everyone that help me with my boy and when I had to race 4 in a row I keep this pace up and Y.M.H. might have to change its motto

I just picked up a brushless 1/10 buggy "roller" with a novak 10.5T motor. Does anyone have any sugesstions for an ESC that wont break the bank? I am planing on buying an extra reciever that will work with my REVO to help keep cost down. Thanks

If it's sensored motor, you'll want a sensored ESC, believe the Mamba Max Pro was on sale somewhere on the web for 99, but usually run 125 from amain.

RCP had a few sensored models...not sure if they still have them in stock...

Ollie and I were out at the track yesterday, man it is PACKED DOWN!! With the rain it should keep it pretty firm and little or no dust.

Forcast doesn't look really promising for Sunday, (and neither does the rear diff in my F8T)but I'll try to get up there...I did run my 5VW on the beach the other day...toomuchfun.

Ill try to make it down to spectate/help. Still no car, the 1/10 buggy is in the mail, and I wont be suprised if it beats the Revo :P Now I will need, the ESC, reciever, batteries and charger. Any recomendations on the batteries/charger? I would like to give Lipo a try. Also I am gonna go with the EZrun 60a ESC. Thanks in advance.

Pete, where are you getting the EZ-run system? Most of us are buying cheap zippy batteries from Hong Kong. Here is a link for HobbyKing, you may find it usefull.
