    I am hearing that is because we didn't get the revo instead.

    The truck isn't made for concrete. That is your problem. Buy a road car.

    I don't know what the inconsistencies are between the kits but mine is tough as nails. Was doing a 3s speed run the other day and lost it. Slid sideways off the road and hit something solid. The truck got catapulted about 5 feet into the air and 20 feet down the road. Only damage was a bent rear stub and broken nerf bar. I expected to see suspension parts being ejected everywhere.

    I've got an old RS4 too but mine is a pro2. I just took the vxl system out of my slash and put it in the RS4 today to make room for my mmm. It need a couple minor mods but talk about fun. Couldn't keep the pinion or the tires on it on 3s. But once I get that ironed out it's going to be insane.
