    My new black rally

    Got one of the first ones that my hobby shop got in today!





    And a couple quick crappy clips...

    It is most definitely a drift car. I'm almost disappointed that i'm going to have to get another set of wheels so i can actually drive it instead of drifting.

    Oh man you suck, just kidding...I wish mine was here, how does it do in a straight line, and what batteries are you running in it?

    LOL at the front mount decal!

    Looks pretty nice, and looks like a lot of fun from the vids. I've been boggling my mind about what my next couple cars will be now that I'm working again. This may be one of them.

    I have 2 evaders kicking around I may just end up tossing in the trash.....

    Have you tried some regular compound touring tires on it yet? I'm wondering how the handling would be.

    Looking forward to some sticky-tire videos.

    That is the deciding factor for me on whether to buy it or not. I'm sure it'll do fine on sticky-tires, but seeing is believing.

    Ahh I think they have those too though! Although I'm not sure if those are organized, or just small friend gathering races. I've seen articles on 1/16 drift comps, though. Looks awesome

    If the jumps are rolling jumps and not the super cross style I bet it will do great

    Thanks for the vids! Wish my LHS got them in like planned this past Friday... but it's gonna be a couple more weeks until I see mine. Glad you mentioned the tires though, i'll be looking into a grippy set off the bat then.

    I'm running a 2200 2s ***** that i bought when the MERV came out so it's got some time on it and not as punchy as when i got it last year. I've also got a short clip tonight of a 2200 3s ***** in it that i'll get up in a few.

    Video on 3s. The car is terrible to control with a battery taped to the chassis. All the weight up high makes it really unstable. Sliding around was out of the question.

    I lost all my stock packs from the MERV... It goes much better with the 2s in the bay.

    I did have to do a lot of adjustments to the suspension tonight to get everything setup even. Toe was all out of wack and camber wasn't even close to being the same. Hopefully it'll make the car respond better turning left/right. But i imagine that it's still going to need a bit more tuning to get it running right.

    Oh and all the ones i played with at the shop needed to have the shocks topped off with oil. so check that when you guys get em!

    Thanks a lot for the info. I bought some 2000mah 2s 20c LiPO's for this thing. Hope it moves out well. I also have some stock nitro 4tech slick's to put on it. I'm just waiting for the call to come pick it up.

    How's the servo holding up? This thing is more like 1/12 rather than 1/16. Looks nice.

    They got a pic of it next to a mini slash and revo here http://monster.traxxas.com/showthread.php?t=536981 and it's right in there with the whole size thing. I don't think they have to many servo issues with the slash. With the wheel size on the revo might be a different story though...
