Yeah I have a nitro evader st. I have had it for about 1 year. This car has been pretty decent so far. So far I haven't broken much on it except I accidently leaned the engine out too much and the piston rod kinda flew apart in the cylinder but now i am on my 2nd engine and it is runnnin great. I am guessin that you have one too?? Do you have any mods??

yea i got 1 lol it's an electric evader st, with alum bulk head, alum shock towers, alum Rear hubs, alum front hubs, alum hinge pin, alum tranny brace, alum battery strap, alum rear chassis brace, yellow ball cups, yellow shock bushings, yellow steering bellcrank, yellow bumper, yellow motor guard... it look purrty good in my eyes and it go's purrty fast 2! but the only problem i break chassis's and a-arms quite abit! but it's still fun!



i run proline original masher tires on rpm slingshot rims, with 2 gp3300 batts, and a custom painted bod by a pal on rcu....lol

I have an alum. rear shock tower and I put in an hpi 1/8th proceed tank in it. The stock one sucks because it leaks a lot of fuel and plus the proceed tank is 125cc. I am still deciding on what I want to put on it next.

I am guessin around 35-40 but i doubt that this is accurate. I am wanting to spend some money on the venom racing speed meter.
I am kinda trying to save my money because I am hoping to get into some 1/10th on-road stuff. How do you like your evader?

yeah i have broken the rear shock tower on it twice. This was due to me running it without the body on and and it would flip from me hitting something and so it broke. After I broke the 2nd one i just decided to go with the alum. one. I also broke the front bumper from nose diving it into the pavement on my drive way. I accidently put the landing ramp way too far away and i figured out that platic and concrete dont get along.

I have the nitro evader.....and I wish I had never bought it....I broke the a-arms like 5 times, and I finnaly gave up and refuse to pay 20 bucks for alunum ones, so I made my own out of Aluminum, I broke the shock tower, the hub, stripped the hex off the brake pad....now it wont even run...POS!!! I cant even get anything out of it, b/c no one really wants it, and on EBAY they sell for like 75-125 dollars RTR....if that....Once you get all Aluminum it is great though.....It is a little back heavy, in that when you go off a jump, the nose flies up and you get aukward landings.....Im goin to relocate my batteries for in the middle over the reviever box...that will help.....
