    I finally went brushless on my Big Block MERV.

    I bought one of those cheap GoolRC 540 size brushless motors that is finned with just 380 size guts. I had a Sidewinder 3 SCT esc in my spare parts bin. Which forced me to sacrifice one of the battery bays for it. At least the 2s batteries it uses are small and pocketable. I won't be able to do a full proper test till tomorrow but the little I could do around the house gives me high hopes.

    I also switched to 7132R Rear Suspension Arm Set that adds 10mm to the wheel base. I believe these are just the rear 1/16 Summit arms. One kewl thing I noticed as soon as they were completely installed. They move the rear wheels out of the way of the battery bays.

    Next addition will be Duratrax Bandito ST 2.2 Tires on JConcepts Rulux Rims. Hopefully they aren't too tall I couldn't find the OD measurement for the tires in the ST style but I think they should be around 3".

    Received my Rulux rims and Bandito tires and glued them up into wheels. I think they are just the right size but not real heavy like most 1/10th rim/tire combos some try to use.
