Here is a video of a brushless E-Revo with way too much power. I am not knocking this truck in any way. I actually love this setup. You can control this with punch control on speed control (Mamba Max). http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=h01_k...eature=related

ah but thats where the skill comes in. and i would love that much power. i dont care how hard it is to drive seeing as it woill probably be on the back two tires 99% of the time. and those tires will be bald on the first day.

rjs_13203: will than affect anything?
