      Working on the body this weekend but otherwise I'm stuck until my radio and servo get here next thursday.
      I love this build. As much as I love the RTR stuff, I enjoy the build of my RC'S. I eventually take them all apart though

      Haven't even run this yet and I'm already shopping for kit #2. I have everything except my new charger, which usps has lost in space. Pro-line pro MT truck is calling my name.

      After seeing my kit my buddy from high school ordered a tamiya boomerang the other day. The disease spreads fast

      4 pole brushless and looks maybe sensorless. 3000+kV and should haul arse, too.

      The more I look at these 'classic' RCs the more I want a modern electronics version.

      I got a hobbystar 3500kv and 60 amp esc combo on ebay. I asked 50 people what motor to get and I got 50 different answers, so I waited until I was drunk and just grabbed something on ebay that made sense at the time. i also liked it because every wire had connectors installed. I suck at soldering.
