Default Just Got Me a XXX-T MF2

so yeah. my friend decided to hook me up with his xxx-t Mf2. comes with a 2400 battery, a stock motor and a Novak GTS Speed control. also gave me some newer Set of wheels. comes with a Spektrum servo lol. says its a standard race servo... what do you guys think? Is it club Race worthy? what would you guys suggest getting next for it?




selling all my crap to buy something nice now :/

Thanks- Mike

The Orion Element 19t is a good motor. I would get a couple batteries before you get a brushless sytem. That 2400 sport pack isnt going to give it much power.

I remember when the first MF edition and BK edition came out. What ever happend to Francis and Kenwald. I quit when they were still around back in 01 and when I started back in 05 they were not around anymore.

The truck should be fine, I use to love mine, I had it dialed. I had the regular XXX-T though. I miss those days when electric was king

if money is an issue go with a refurb novak gtb and a NEW novak 17.5

The novak 17.5s are so sick dude. wicked power everywhere, can't go wrong with that combo.

Kinwald is still racing a little bit, I know he runs the X factory car now and Xray nitro stuff. (at least as far as I know)

Francis retired from rc racing. He ran the reedy onroad race I think it was last year, xray hooked him up with everything, he ran then gave it all back. Last time I talked to him he was selling real estate.
