Nice paint job. The spaz stix and tamiya almost seem the same color. Just a million dollars a gallon.

Hey I also was wondering where is the gearing at for the 13.5 set up? Is it more of mod gearing style or stock gearing style?

Manual is 26/78. That is a good place to start.

I have some Kashima shock bodies for the front of the truck I bought too many of from AE. Let me know, 25 shipped. Can't wait to install my set, I saw a couple mod guys with them already, really smooth.

I took my T5M out for its 1st run today. Damn, this thing is no joke. I kicked butt all day. I ran 17.5 in an open class on an outdoor track that was medium sized. I TQ'ed and won. My TQ would have landed me 2nd or 3rd on the grid in E Buggy.lol I am real happy with this thing. I can't wait to hit regionals with it.
