    Cool What do you all think?

    I was looking around in my closet and i found an old Radioshack Rc Monster. It had a Nice looking wing on it so took it off, painted it, and put it on my maxx! heres some pics....


    Its held on by these four screws... and when i was bashing today it landed upside down from at least 6 feet in the air and it didn't come out

    And of course, the Traxxas decal...


    Sorry about pic quality...

    Put some washers on the screws to help prevent the screws from pulling thru.

    Land on your tail a few times and your next post is going to be: What body do you think I should get. lolll

    That lid will not hold up to the impacts of the crashes your wing will impale on it.
