    I hate this fact.
    Those of us who have been in the hobby for many years will understand the gratification of nitro, but the modern "hobbyist" and the modern "customer" has ruined the market IMO....

    It's hard to find parts for. I have wanted to get one multiple times in the past, but the issues you are facing are why I never picked one up. If I was you, I would look for OEM parts only, unless...

    How'd you break the planetary gears in the first place?

    I've found most of my nitro cars tend to not get gear damage usually, but I'm pretty easy on my cars, even when doing big jumps, and I like...

    Hmm, looks very nice. Interested to hear how it turns out taking a beating.

    I may just do truetrack, but have not made up my mind yet.

    If you have the option, and a kick butt servo, single servo is the way to go. I had servos from my 3D helicopter days, and a middle of the road heli servo turns out to be an epic car servo. Brushless...
