Default Avante 2011

Iíve had my Avante (mostly) built up for a couple years, but as yet havenít run it. Recently got a little brainstorm for a subtle mod, let see who spots it first!

I think 10.
I have one too, fully built up and ready to go, but never actually run it.

Unless you guys have a spare one in a box I wouldn't run them. They really aren't meant to be run, parts are expensive to buy and hard to find even at TamiyaUSA. I'd rather run my Traxxas rustler or slash 4x4 or stampede or bandit vxls.

The new cars parts fit for the most part. and some of the Vintage Guys enjoy attending vintage meets, and also re-living their memories of old. And they are meant to be run, what else would one do???? What if you had a Mint TRX-1, for which parts too can be pricey, would you run it?

I have one, and contemplated running it or shelfing it. Since it's a rere, I decided to run it. What a great car if you were around when the original '88 was released, and like me, was out of reach. I put in a vintage technigold and a lipo 2s, and I was surprised at how quick it was. A Traxxas would out run it, out break it any day, and at a fraction of the price. But that would be missing the point of these rereleases.
