    Sounds like you had a REALLY bad batch on your rig. Recommend giving Traxxas a call. They are obviously defective, they will likely replace them.

    If you look at all of the truck makers out there, their next generation rigs have basically copied what the TRX4 has. That really says something about how well Traxxas did on their second attempt at...

    Unlike the submarines I was stationed on, the TRX4 is not designed for prolonged submergence.

    Rip 007

    Sean Connery has passed away at 90.

    He is the iconic 007, was awesome as the senior Dr. Jones, but my favorite roll he played was that of Marko Ramius, the captain of the Red October.
