Yup, i Ditched the HPI Savage XS. cuz no one should be paid to work on those, let alone pay someone to have to work on it.

i traded it for this. plus i had to add in some cash, and a few upgrades.






next to his sister. just for fun.

if you are impressed with nimh... bricks shall be shat if you go 2x3s lipo. 

I would recommend a couple 2s lipo and run 4s. My conversion was on 5s and it was insane.

And get rid of those big joes if you go lipo. unless you belted them you will destroy them.

thats what i been thinking, the truck seems to top out at about 40kmh right now, give or take a little. i also think the ESC has been tuned down, but as it sits right now i dont have a programmer! haha

im thinking of a set of white dish wheels with racing tires.

castle link is cheap. $20 i think at great hobbies/hobby alley. maybe $25

40kmh sounds about right for nimh. its nothing spectacular. I don't know where they get off saying 65mph on the box haha

Get yourself a couple SPC lipos http://www.specpointbatteries.com/index.php?productID=61 for example
and you will be doing 60mph + easy.

So, while asking about charging batteries safely, i got a thread of mine locked because it was information that was generic to 'any RC'... even though i asked if my ESC or driving habits could cause this problem
http://traxxas.com/forums/showthread.php?8943834-LiPo-batteries-and-Unbalanced-volts
now, speaking of aftermarket parts... there is a thread on there about how to modify your Revo to fit LST2 diffs, that sounds pretty aftermarket to me... any ways.

after trying to argue my point i was pissed off, so i went onto another thread that was asking for advice on AEM parts, i exclaimed my distaste -in a family friendly manner, and got an infraction, plus my locked thread now, and the question got answered, i just was gonna branch off on it... bastards.

So i sent the mod that gave me the points and locked my thread this:

dude i dont even care, i have two kids and want to know why any battery does what it does and if it was my revo or my habits causing the problem, i was also concerned for the safety of my two kids. its nice to see traxxas is concerned about the safety of its long time customers. ive had LOTS of traxxas models and ive never been in such a hard up place for advice.

you are WAY off on the rules dude. you think my thread was bad because i dont have a traxxas charger or traxxas batteries and think i was asking for help in regards to how to use these products, or must have. because thats the only way my thread would be against the rules if we can post full instructions on how to install LST2 diffs in a revo, or how to get RPM arms to work with CVDs, and most people suggest to go with MRP shafts, here i am supporting you guys and this is how i get treated. very nice. very nice indeed. thank you for your time with all of this and careful reading of the rules yourself.  im glad traxxas picks such knowledgable people to moderate their online communities, and I hope you continue on to be successful at whatever exactly it is that you do. meanwhile i dont think ill be back here for offering or needing any advice. if youre not concerned with my safety, ill find support who is. have a super duper day kid.

haha that might get you the banhammer. That forum makes me laugh sometimes. it is ridiculous that you can talk all day about shit but ask 1 technical support question on anything NOT traxxas and they lock it up.
