    First One!

    Ok, awesome truck, but running a thick set of battery leads already causes trouble. The slit for the battery wires to come thru is teeny! But still an awesome truck!

    Nah, that will be 69Malibu who does that!

    Cool looking truck sitting there! Seeing it sitting in someone's home just makes me giddy! They are real! Finally! Enjoy, and yes, get us some action shots when you can. It is sad, all of us living the dream through one guy who has one already!

    sure... 7 1/8 long, 1 1/8 tall, about 1 3/4 deep. It has these movable battery stays so you can have a snug fit for you batterys, nice little feature

    there has been some debate on using a battery pack that is 30mm tall.
    1 1/8 = 1.125 =28.57mm
    not good

    I took a second measurement, looks like it's a touch taller than 1 1/8 right at 30mm, so it will fit but it's tight

    Is this your first revo? Something else isn't it.. nothing I've ever driven has handled as great. Now you need to get that baby out to the track to play around

    Looks like the 5000mAh 3s *****-h lipos won't fit. The 4300 *****-k will fit though, so i will be getting the ***** k.

    Thanks for the measurements birdy

    Seems like the *****-H are too wide, 51mm wide, and the battery compartment isn't that deep.
