As for the REVO, well now...thats a nice ride

Dude...3 words...Get a bonne. Simple as that.
Dont forget why i bought this car, its not really a choice.
My Bonneville cost me in total 23000$. Ive invest time, cares and money into it, and it finaly burn. I still have to give 4000$ to the bank, wich is my repairs.

Do you understand now ?

If the accident wasn't your fault, I hope someone advised you to sue for the difference.

I did the break-in no problem, then the day later i tried to start it, but it wont start, 2 days tring it then see a wire moving while starting, it was my ground wire that was cut by a gear.
i welded it , it started fine, but after i had some tuning difficulty, the idle was fluctuating, but i was just too lean on the low speed needle... the engine run fine now, pretty powerful.

But right now i have a bad throttle/braking servo.
I flipped accidentaly in water after a jump and this probably cause that, it run fine and suddenly the throttle go at WOT and stay at WOT till i stop it....

try to stop that thing going full throttle no brake, just full throttle. It happen 2 time before i got it to the hobby shop and discover it was the servo.

Its pretty scary, the tire were double size because they were spinning while trying to stop the engine.

im a bit scared now to try it again , but the guy at the hobby shop told me that those servo are really cheap from factory, ill got a new one on bearing. Should be ok for a while, ready for the action!

my friend did a 10 foot long and 5 foot high jump today on a double jump , it was awesome! cant wait to try that (we are just beginning)

I didn't know that part about the fire, but you can still sue the insurance company (or whomever hit you in the case of accident) as long as you can prove the car is worth more than the value they arrived at, which typically is just the avg value of simular cars for sale in your area.

Having already received and cashed your check usually limits what you can do at this point since it typically implies that you agreed with the value they came up with.

I had to fight for, and won, an additional $4000.oo on the total loss of my wifes Astro; they were trying to play hardball and only pay off the $19k bankloan on a $30k van that was only a year old. I learned this lesson from a female friend when someone hit her 71Cuda and they only wanted to give her $400 for it. LOL They (Ins co.) looked so pathetic in court...LOL

sounds like you're having a good time with it man. my tmaxx is pretty sick(i converted to rear drive and it has a very light chassis), i can do a backflip and land on the front bumper without hitting a jump. also it pulls the front wheels off the ground through second gear. what kind of nitro fuel do you use? try to stick with the traxxas brand if you can. just a little tip, the 3.3 motor LOVES a 33% nitro mixture, but i wouldnt reccomend switching fuel mixtures if you've been using 20% or 10%. if you ever have any questions or problems, send me a message.

Edit: make sure you pick up a "Tuned Pipe" from a company like RDLogistics or something, you'll see almost 10 more miles per hour with a pipe.
