    Done my first much needed mod
    Water relief holes in the tires.

    2 holes per tire across from each other works great.

    And a poser shot, impressed with the articulation

    congrats on the merv.
    be sure to get those two screws back in on the rear end since they hold your rear bulk down.

    So water doesn't sit in the tire rotting away at the foam. Also if you run in fine sand it'll pass though. Kinda a safe stock balance for weathered running

    Well when it showed tires were full of water and were WAY out of balance so put ''water relief holes'' in them to let and keep water out of them

    Anyway awesome truck got me to like a mini for the first time, I had a HATE for mini's until this truck.

    On snow this thing would smoke my brushless MLST or either of the two mini-t's I've had in the past that made me really hate mini's.
    Way to go traxxas AWESOME truck

    Yeah the stubby looks good. I don't have a wheely bar or I'd do that. I just ziptie the front end down. No more wheelies! But with my wing I can wheely all the way down the block!
