    I used a small flathead to push the tab in while using a hex allen wrench in the enter to pull to the side. They were really hard to get out when my truck was new.

    The guy is just trying to make it sound like its such a dear and awesome truck that he priced it where its a deal. Truth probably is that he had the extra parts or was able to get them cheap, threw...

    I believe when they say it is new. All of the parts on there minus maybe the body and light kit are easy bolt ons. Doesn't look like any performance changes were made - just items that are visually...

    I don't know if there is a changelog anywhere on the models.

    For this particular one, I think it might be hard to find out given it appears to have many aftermarket parts. What ESC/Motor does it...

    1) “wt” in motor oil doesn’t stand for weight and cannot be used interchangeably
    2) you are right that stock is 30wt (or 350cst) silicon oil

    Shock oil is cheap enough that there shouldn’t be a...

    This is what I was referring to. I didn't know you could still get the red one - last time I looked nothing was available. Thank you for the link.

    ^^This. Older body frames just didn't have the holes for the bolts. The newer body frame does come with it and can be purchased.

    There isn't a ton of compatibility between the electric 2wd and nitro 2wd. Everything from the front suspension to the transmission is different. Even the steering linkage is different.

    What are you trying to do here? The 3s batteries that fit in the trays can be put in parallel and do just as good without modifications or the worry about not having a body. Also, the batteries are...

    I mean if handling is what you are going for, then its more than just a LCG as you alluded to. Start with sway bars as they will have the biggest effect on your handling. Then if that's not enough,...

    The 4tec2.0 frame has a inner hole for more extreme steering angles - I think you have to drill it out though. The only thing I don't like about the 4tec platform is that it doesn't give much room...

    I haven't built a drifter (yet) but I have researched it quite a bit. You will probably have a much easier time of drifting if you use the 4x4 platform, although I am told that a 2wd will give...

    Nah, the center diff only makes it harder to wheelie if you put lighter diff oil in it. The stock 50k oil allows you to wheelie on command. You of course can go thicker and get even more wheelie...
