    Just picked up a new (to me) mini revo. Thing is a rocket and a blast to drive. Here are a couple pics and a link to a vid I just put up of it this weekend. Yes there is no sound it's finals week give me some slack in advance ha when I have more time I'll go back and clean em up and spend the time to find something YouTube will actually let you play.

    Here are some pics to go with the video link I posted a couple posts back, I'm sure I can post some action photos too if there is interest. This truck is in addition to my bigger revo 3.3 and I have to say I am not disappointed at all with its performance. With the 2.2 inch 1/10 size wheels and tires it is still extremely off-road capable and with its size it is easy to bring anywhere. Durability is awesome too because it is so light. I can list upgrades/mods but that would probaly take awhile...:D I can say what I would recommend first etc though

    thats an odd mid motor setup...

    Wouldn't that cause the car to rotate left to right in the air?

    I just bought a E-Revo 1/10 4x4 Brushed. I went Brushed to keep it waterproof. Upgraded to 2 - 2S Lipos, 775 Titan motor upgrade with 17T Pinion, and 56 or 58T Spur (can't remember). Going to do a 2200 or 2400 brushless setup soon, and will be purchasing the Dewalt twin brushed setup as well. This way I will be able to switch back and forth as needed if I want to play in water lol.

    Instead of dropping dough on a dual brushed and a brushless system, just pick up the waterproof mamba max system. Would cost about the same and both brushed and brushless but there's no switching back and forth!
