New RC Toy

Actually it's used but new to me. Picked it up for $100. Has been sitting around. It seems to run good though. I "drove" it today before buying it and the thing rips. Seriously I think I had it doing 35-40mph up the road before i rolled it. Now I need a new engine/cylinder guard or whatever the hell that thing is that broke off All I know is that it is a Traxxas Revo. Anyone else out there know about these that could give me some tips?

Awesome car! i got one a few months ago for about $165, HPI Brama 10b, topped it out at about 16 mph ( hooked the gps up to it ) its AWD too lol, bad ass little thing. could be faster, but its fun to play around with.

first day i got it, i snapped the tire off lol, so good advice DO NOT PLAY CHICKEN WITH YOUR CAR AND YOUR FRIENDS CAR! lol i had to wait 2 weeks for replacement parts from ebay to arrive.

Me too. no worries.. its half the fun of the hobbie, fixing it up. just make sure u find out the model name, and buy a owners manual online for it, and check ebay for the parts u need. trust me.. u need the book lol, all of them show u how to replace the parts.

Yeah I bought this off one of my friends. He told me he burned up an engine a few months after he got it and it was replaced for free. I have a bucket of new spare parts that came with it mostly suspension stuff I think. It seemed like it ran perfect today. The temp guage sounds like a very good idea.

you will break it a bunch if you use it...it's the nature of the beast. i have a brand new Revo 3.3 sitting still in the box in my basement i bought over winter...not sure if i'm gonna keep it or not. i also bought a 1/16 Revo VXL that has been draining my wallet since i got it...fun...but breakage and upgrades starting to add up. the 1/16 will do just over 50mph on pavement, and is a blast.
