    on tracks I think a serpent or a mugen will prob have the advantage. Where do you live, I think I can take you with an mtx2. If it's a small track, I think a nice electric car will dominate any nitro( because of its power to rate in the turns) but only on small tracks with lots of turns.

    wow i havent checked here in a while. Whats goin on??? Update on my tec- I think my chameleon 2 is about to bite the dust. There was a gash in the comm, and the first time i went to get it cut they had to cut it all the way down. So I'm looking for a motor...probably a speedgems 17t.

    lol, Doesn't seem like it...What kind of runtimes are you getting with the 15t? Also, what motor is it? I would like to get a lehner basic bl system, that would be insane. But I think for xmas ill ask for a tmaxx or something. I would like a nitro rc.

    I was just thinkin, doesn't that 15 turn get a little hot? It seems like you could be over geared a tad.

    Go to radioshack and get the x-tals for their xmods. $12 for a pack of 6 x-tals. They work perfectly :D

    Well it is sad to say that wonter is almost here and there is pretty much no where to run it "darn snow!" I will be doing alot of stuff over the winter months if I have the money. Mods include graphite everything from traxxas, alumium pully's arms and possibly shock towers. My 4tec, as I said if the money is there, will be the most pimped out ride around, and strong!!!!
