    Oh ha nevermind then. You probably did bc of the DVD. I like that about Traxxas, They go out of there way to make the hobby better and more enjoyable for you.. Not to mention there Trucks are tough as steel even without any aftermarket parts

    How do you like the losi crawlers? I have a ax10 and its really cool, made my own 4 wheel steer. I also have a 1/8 ofna buggy, hpi rs4, losi street weapon, tamiya f1, rc10 gt (my first rc car), 1/2 of an airplane, 2 xmods, and a helo. Any of you guys do crawling comps?
