    Previously I’ve been using venom batteries which I’m not really happy with.

    The parts list says the shock caps are aluminum. I will not be upgrading anything on this vehicle until broken, except for a clear body if I can get one. This is not the the course I took with my 2wd rustler, everything has been upgraded except the electronics and some screws. I look forward to this beast.

    Just make sure you do all the unboxed pre-run checks and adjustments. Make sure all the screws are tight, the slipper is set correctly, the gear mesh is correct, the shocks articulate smoothly, etc.

    Did that last night.
    I had to work this morning so I won't get to play until later this afternoon. Hate it when work gets in the way of my play time. Lol
