New parts install, ran for a full tank & in need of more new parts! LOL
2wd is quite squirrelly in wet grass, ha.. utility pole strikes first blow.

New parts added:
• new super bee kill switch-plays nice with my DX4R(killer bee V2 did not)
• sway bar kit
Life of an RC’r fix, drive, & repeat! Seems if I’m not breaking my rigs then I’m not having fun! - LOL

I think I ran RPM arms on mine when I had it. Guessing that saved me more than a few times.


I forgot how long that chassis was. I had the scorpion "shorty" chassis on mine.


Cut around 1.5" out of it.

Yea, there are two clones 5b companies that come to mind, King Motors & Rovan. Some like them & some don’t.

Well, I did it again...I couldn’t pass it up! It’s a 5T in complete stock form & the fuelie 26 purrs like a kitten. I’m anxious about tearing it down & seeing exactly what I bought.
