Finally took my sport 3 for a spin this evening. Finally got my 2s lipo in the mail. Convert the plug to deans.

Absolutely no dog bone issue being lost or coming off. However two incident where small rocks would jam up the steering . Other than that I LOVE the car!. Run awesome without any big issues. Maybe trade all my nitro for electric instead...lol

Definitely planning to instal upgraded parts for it.

Just a little report for today. You guys have a good one. The drift tires are so weared off ..lol

The 30/31mm front tire is easy to find, the 34mm rear is an issue. I can't find anything even close, most of the foam tires aren't listed with sizes.

I just ordered a pair from Active Powersports, $9 for the tires, $13 for shipping! We'll see if they come back and say out of stock.

Received my clear Porsche body as well, nice razor cut down the middle of the roof, from window to window. Guess the Amazon guy didn't care what was in that box with the "do not open with a razor" sticker

"As for the damage that you are claiming, I can assure you that the item was shipped brand new and without defect, as it was special ordered, just for you and inspected prior to shipping."



So I can jump through their hoops for a refund, they do not have another body to send out. I think I'll just run it, it can be my beat around body until more become available.

Then I bumped a tire and broke 3 turnbuckles

Titanium replacements on the way, along with a clear wide Porsche body, 31/34mm wheels and front tires. Rear tires are on backorder for 2 months, and the 34mm tire size was invented just for that wheel. Might try 31mm all around in the meantime.
You have the item number to the turnbuckles and steering rack? Thanks

The rack is RSS3-007OR, I found it on ebay. The turnbuckle set was direct from Exotek, although I wouldn't recommend them. I will be using titanium turnbuckles, hoping they can survive more than one bump.


3x25mm for steering x2, 3x35mm for camber x4. As well as rod ends, they have 4.8mm or 5mm, not sure what is needed exactly. The Exotek site says the ball studs are 4.7mm.

34mm rear tires are impossible to find.
