thanks appreciate it...

you cant go wrong with a brushless setup.. its ease of use makes it a no brainer and well worth the initial cost.

With a mod motor you will be spending at least 5 dollars a weekend on brushes not to mention the time and effort to cut the comm.......

Well when it came to offroad...I have always been a Losi guy. I wanted to try something different.. I will be bringing the XXXTMF2 with me as well. Had to do quite a few things to make it worthy in my opinion...overall its a bad ass truck and anxious to see how it will do. Main problem was the slop in the A-arms and steering...taken care of with Losi shims.

some upgrades:
M8
Airtronics 94357
LRP V 8.1
Orion Revolution 11x1
All stainless screws
Graphite front shock tower
GT2/T4 titanium turnbuckles
Asscociated blue thumb screws
Academy SB V2 front and rear carriers and HPI Cvd's to accomodate the SB axles
Graphite front and rear arms
HPI threaded option shocks(removed orange anodize)
HPI dishes with blades and fuzzy t's
and more...
