    Stinga's TRX-4 "tactical" build

    So I was at my LHS a few days ago and I noticed something sitting on a shelf that was calling me over...
    A slightly used/modified tactical body for TRX-4... modified to sit on a regular TRX-4.
    Being that I saw somewhere that they are discontinued, I did not want to miss out on having one since, well simply, since they are awesome
    So today, I am going to get my kit that I have been wanting for a while and I am gonna build it from the ground up.

    Now, I am a Traxxas lover, and tend to keep them pretty much stock as I have never had any issues with motors or electronics (smashing into walls and breaking other stuff is another story) so the kit will most likely be built as is.
    With one exception...
    Along with the Traxx I have on my current TRX-4, I have the stock servo (2075X) and I am seeing that this can use some improvement so I was looking at Traxxas 400( 2255) along with BEC kit (2262) and metal arm (8247X).
    However, I find it to be a pricey upgrade, so I would like your opinion: would I really be getting my money's worth with this upgrade?

    Here is a little preview, I bought a cheap light kit and installed that in the body and took it for a spin on my current TRX-4 http://cloud.tapatalk.com/s/5e454822...212_165518.mp4
