So i used some x-mas money a year ago to buy this kit... Its probably the best $125 ive spent Very Happy !!!

Some pics of the build:















Pics of it with the original electronics:





The original electronics consisted of:

A JR XR2i Radio sytem $100
A Novak XRS esc $50
A associated super 370 $12
A Hitec HS81mg servo $30
and a matched and zapped 6 cell 1500mah side by side battery (had the punch of a lipo!) $35

All of these electronics were cheap and still good enough to consistently place well at local races

More current pics of the current setup:









Current electronics:

A Spectrum DX3S Radio System (not running the telemetry) $250
A Tekin RS ESC (TOP OF THE LINE!) $175
A Novak 10.5 sensored motor $75
The original hitech servo
the original batts


This setup is way faster and easier to maintain and use.

The Upgrade list:

Xray Aluminum Front Knuckles $32 each side!
Xray Aluminum Driveshafts $30 a pair!
3racing Motor Heatsink W/ Fan $12
Modded BRP Mini-T Bumper $8


Questions and comments are welcome Very Happy

Are you winning more now? I always wondered how much better equipment helped when you're still surrounded by bad drivers who manage to take everyone out with them every few laps. I know with the sprint car it didn't matter how fast it was I always had some idiot land on me as he was flipping down the straight.

Anyway, looks great, it may be time for new tires soon, but other than that, it looks great.

That makes sense, it's easier to win if the truck is still working well. Very Happy
