    The chameleon 2 is a 19t spec motor. Im amazed at how fast it is, probably close to 30mph with the stock gearing. Im currently running the duratrax i-speed 16t. No problems so far (knock on wood) with any of my electronics. Actually the only time i have broke anything was the rear shock tower after jumping it 28 feet lol. My friend has a digi cam so ill go bug him tomorrow and ask him to use it :D

    lol, man it was insane. We had a kicker ramp, like at a skateboard ramp. First off, i was using the cham 2, and i hit the ramp just right. The first time, however, i turned a little before i went off the ramp and i had to catch the car or it woulda hit me in the head. The 2nd time i hit it right, then it landed right on its back. The shock tower snapped and fell out of the car, shocks and all. We measured with a tape measure, and the car didnt roll at all.

    lol thats crazy gus! I was beatin the #@$% out og my 4tec today, being really stupid! I had it up to full speed (33-37MPH?) and I hit a garage door and just stoped no damage what so ever lol. Then I was taking it offroad on grass dirt gravel all kinds of stuff. I fliped it 2 times and rolled it 5 times all at once it was crazy! I really know how to bea it up. And also I busted 1 o the sides of the upper chassis off LOL

    You are one lucky b*stard. I took my tec off road once- locked diffs, shocks all the way up, and it worked surprisingly well. But i did a speed run like that and it started to bounce and shake like mad. If i turned it would flip lol.
