So here is an update of what came in the mail! Other then that I've been dremeling and modifying the battery cases, batteries are very very tight fit. Took the crappy red of my springs to match the polished motor mounts! Have to send my servo in because its not a one hole style on the tabs.....Lame lol

A MERV is the abbreviation for Mini E-Revo VXL.
