I am already looking at buying a new esc which will cost me 150 dollars or more. New motor over the summer which will cost me about 100 dollars or more. Had to buy new tires which cost me about 80 dollars because I purchased them unmounted. I will have spend about 310 dollars not including the tires. Don't forget a new radio but you can find the under 50 dollars on ebay including the receiver and yes I am talking about one with 2.4ghz technology. So in my opinion, buy a kit and build it yourself so you can learn about the truck and how parts go together and as well as making it to fit YOUR racing style and not the general public. One thing I learned in my years is that everyone has a slightly different setup and style of driving and you should make yours to fit your driving preference. Hope this helps
For a esc look at brushless hobbies LT4, its rated at 120 amps, sensored capable, can handle up to 3s lipo all for about $70. For a motor unless you are running roar or some other rules based race look at the sensored tacons from hobbypartz for about $36 minus shipping.

XXXDad,
What are the advantages, and the wear like on the aluminum steering parts? I've been holding off on them figuring that they're going to wear out at a slightly slower rate than the plastic parts, and be much more expensive to replace. Thanks

Those aren't the parts I'm referring to. The images that XXXDad posted show aluminum hub carriers and spindles.

Mostly they are stronger and when get a little worn out you shim, as we all know. When you make one part stronger, something else gives. I run mostly on outdoor 1/8 scale tracks. I like to finish races so I build it strong.
Fix the week links, and save the extra grams with titanium.
I run a 7.5 motor . Hope this help... and it looks so nice

Hey Andrew. Which ones did you get. TRA3645 has 2 different lengths of turnbuckles. 55mm and 61mm. I am assuming you want to use the 61mm but don't know for sure.

Talk about expensive. There is no way that should cost that much.

You get the full bell crank setup, servo mounts, bearing and hardware. Seems pretty fair for CNC pieces.

Pretty trick looking, 1st reversed setup I've seen.

What I want to know is yes Performance, but also it brings that servo back 5mm and even with shorty servo the RX is a tight fit with Alu. batt. holder 10mm forward position.

I run a shorty pack also but my battery holder is in the stock position and I am pretty sure I have the room to make it work.

I run a MT-4 with the small RX but once I get it installed I will take a picture for you to show how it looks.

Here is a picture from their site I would presume the battery brace is in the stock position and it look a little tight but I could also stick the RX against the servo standing on its side that would not be a problem either.

For those of you that have been on the fence about the new thrust bearing the reviews have been coming in and all positive. I have plenty in stock so get those orders in to try one in your TLR or AE diff today.
