    What do you wish was different?

    I'm looking for some modification ideas. What do you wish traxxas had done differently. Skys the limit. 4 wheel steering, longer wheelbase, 2+ axis TSM, or just simply different tires.

    I recall reading that the valving is different. If I'm right, you should see more/larger holes in the front shocks.
