    Yeah I figured why not lol. The hobby shop told me that I would have to tweak the needles on my nitro every time the temperature changed. So far once I got it running it's been set up the same lol....

    Also forgot to mention i have the older traxxas controller that is 2.4ghz and has the red button on the side of it. Do they not have throttle trim?
