Cool Brushless E-revo 1/16 with 2.4 Ghz @ $221

Hi,

I am getting new E-Revo vxl 1/16 brushless with 2.4 Ghz controller (TRA7107) @ $221 after applying the discount coupon from towerhobbies.

Just want to check if this is a good deal or there is any better deal around...

Thanks,
Suhas

That's a good deal. My friend just bought one for $259. But that was shipped no tax. Since we are in IL Tower would charge both.

What are the parts that wear out soon for this truck? I would like to order those along with the truck as I am staying outside of USA.

Axle carriers (or knuckles, w/e you wanna call em) stock ones suck. Get RPM and call it a day. That and the servo can be a bit weak. Either grab a couple gear sets ($4/set) or a metal geared replacement. Savox and HiTec both offer MG in the right size. Other than that, it's pretty solid until you start beating the crap out of it. I've broken other parts than those I listed, but that only happens when I do dumb things like miss the ramp and hit a curb head on at full speed

Also, in case you didn't see already...
