Nice car you got there. I've been looking to get the 1/16 E-Revo VXL but I'm torn between that and a 26" trials bike. Man I wish I was rich...

haha I bought this with the money I made over the summer. I intended to only spend about 500 of the large sum I got, but... Ive spent a good $1000 on this thing. All in good fun though, Its truly a tinkerers heaven.

and all Traxxs cars are great. If you are considering it, Id do it. try to find a place to race it as well, It adds a whole dimension of fun onto it.

Funny you say that... We made a lexan covering and then scammed fellow visitors of my schools fair money by allowing them 5 shots with a paintball gun to try to shoot my car, and if they did, they got to shoot me... Was great fun.

That and its a hobby because this thing takes constant maintenance and fixing/tinkering. Its not like I can just pull it off the shelf like a toy car and have it work, and its not like i can drive it for a few seconds and put it away. you have to tune everything, set everything, put in every screw, measure like 50 different angles, ect ect.

expensive hobby, i used to have a team losi xxxnt. i sold it cause it seemed like i was buying replacement parts every weekend. the differential was poorly designed not to mention plastic gears and a single cruddy disk break. but it was fun when it worked. at the time i had it i was also into paintball another expensive hobby especially since there is no conservation of paint with an eclipse ego. if i was going to buy another i would buy a high end electric since electricity is my field of study.

I have a T-4 with a vector x-11, sphere, road hawgs, nearly all converted to FT parts, hitec MG, spektrum 2.4 gear etc. It needs to be rebuilt, and I need to completely fabricate some new parts and find some replacements. (it would be nice not to rebuild the diff so often).
