Bit late to the party but i got the exact truck your looking at from Santa this year
Obviously i've been busy with the decals to make it my own but i absolutely love this truck... the fact that its 2WD makes it better for me, i want the challenge of a tail happy RC to tame and build my skills with, there wouldnt be any long term fun or involvement otherwise would there !?
Upgrades have already started, even though i told myself i wouldnt for a while... i dropped RPM carriers and larger bearings to suit in over the weekend along with alu shock caps and 40wt oil. So far this has made a nice difference reducing the amount of roll in the bends and taken some of the sag out of the shocks.
On the way are Anza Caster blocks, Anza hinge pins, Anza hinge pin brace and a Pro-Line chassis saver.
I'm still running standard tyres with the XL-5 / titan combo and thats proving ok for the time being. I'm also running Gens Ace 5300 30c 2S lipos - note the XL-5 has the low voltage detection disabled from the factory so you have to enable it to protect the packs.
Tyres will be the next thing on the shopping list for sure but i am going to run the standard ones down pretty well first. For the areas i'm running the truck either Pro-Line Trenchers or Gladiators will more than likely be the ones i go for.
If i ever need to play with the steering bell crank etc i think i'll look at the 4x4 option first... the alu options are nice but £30 is a lot to pay for them i think, unless someone can talk to me about the benefits
