    I put snow chains on it

    ...and that was a complete waste of time. The mini Revo does not do well in snow, even with chains. All four wheels quickly turn into snowballs and the car does not go far. Maybe the chains will...

    You're not missing anything. I've owned and installed that kit. It sucks and it's outdated. And it doesn't install on the modern/new E-Revo's.

    That kit works with the 1/16 Merv VXL and plugs in nicely to the stock receiver? Can you show pics of your install of the lights and how you ran the wiring?

    Anybody know how easy (or not) it is to install the LED light bars from the Unlimited Desert Racer onto a MERV? My son would like some lighting on his MERV and I'm wondering if this is a possible...

    There are advantages to buying used, no doubt. But there are disadvantages also. I won't buy used because you never know how the merv was driven or how many "miles" were put on it. I always assume it...

    From what I've heard, nothing will necessarily fix it. But I guess time will tell. When I replaced the rear diff and gear I replaced the rear bulkhead with Hot Racing's aluminum version which has an...

    The Savox servo is $31. I paid about $18 (no tax, no shipping) for the Corona servo on eBay and I've had no problems so far. $31 plus tax and shipping is a bit high in my opinion.

    Newly Redesigned Mini-Revo?

    Soooo, Traxxas has announced the newly redesigned 1/10 E-Revo which should be on sale any day now. But for me the 1/10 models just take up too much room. I don't wanna store a 1/10 model.

    How long...

    Are you saying I wouldn't need to use a 9-volt battery? That would be great. I'd love to simply plug into the receiver and get the power from there.
