I don't plan on breaking it in as I know its too cold right now. There is a race coming up however that will be running indoors that I will go too but I am just going to go and watch. If the weather was different, I might break it in but not right now.

If you run in the snow, make sure you WD-40 everything afterwards, water + your metal moving parts left to sit is not a good thing!

That is really strange about your battery pack. Assuming you didn't let the pack rest right away, that may be why it smoked. You usually want to let the packs cool down completely before recharging them right away.

it will be better then you think. i loved mine when the ywere stock. and lowgeared, revo shocks dont have spacers. haha. the yare adjustable. just turn the peice that the springs connect too at the top of the shock. it will tighten the mup some. you will probly be happy with how it is though. it spiders over stuff and takes the rough like its nothing.

I think by default the setup is just soft. But, over ripplely stuff it will just motor right through. If you are doing big air, you may want to change the setup alittle but thats part of the fun!

hey another question for you guys....i got my truck broke in and probably have about 10 tanks of fuel through it now including break in...from the factory setting i have leaned it out about 1/2 a turn and it seemed to run great...then after a while it started to get into the 280 degree range and i kept richening it but it seemed not to want to go down.....also is it possible to lean out the the low end needle too much....on the videos and such you always see the truck taking off like a bat out of hell with teh wheels hanging....mine doesnt take off too bad but it doesnt launch like the videos...any suggestions????? any other suggestions that might help tune might truck....


thank you
