Can't wait to see the build start to take place. Are you going to stick with the stock 26cc engine or go with something bigger?

While I'm glad to see you've at least bought a kill switch (a must in my opinion) - I've heard a lot of mixed reviews about the Uber kill switches. Looking forward to hearing how it works out for you.

That's quite the shopping list! I'll be interested to see how these work out for you. Would like to get a baja in the future and it would be good to know what works well.

Can't wait to see your build. I went with a RTR clone, but can't seem to stop wanting to upgrade. The 1/5 scales are a blast to play with. Good call on the kill switch (I went with Killer RC). I would not even run mine until the kill switch came, was installed, and verified working. Keep the pics and updates coming.

I'm so bad that if what I ordered is coming UPS I have them hold it so I can pick it up in the morning and not have to wait all day. When I have to wait, I must be the last box on the truck, and the driver is dropping it off on his way home!
