cheers cheers well picked up my mini last night and so far have 3 packs threw it and omg its awsome had 2 problums tho first trx messed up and put the "speed pinnon" on insted of the stock one so motor was runnign hot and not amazing off the line so switched to the ""speed pinnon"" and so much better wheelie on demand and so responsive in air and second prob was.....TO FAST AND QUICK its hard to drive cuz its soooooo unpredictable 1 wrong move and your trying to save itthen u save it and when i take off it just wheelies onto its lid lol here are pics



and I'm officially in love with an rc this thing is so much fun to drive and even my kittens love it lol




only weak points i can see are the wing and wing mount the wing is already showing alot of ruffed up edges from being dragged along the road at 30 mph lol but not going to really bash it hard till more company's start making hop ups for them but on concrete they squat the rear down and front comes like a inch off the ground if it can get grip it will wheelie on grass it wheelies on command but slower and puts strain on motor on asfault it will easily pull up the front and flip back onto its lid and if you are to hard on the brakes it will do half a front flip and land on its lid still haven't tested it on dirt yet but planing to later today.

idk about going AL for the rods, yeah they may be stronger but plastic flexes and i know the tubes are a better design the just strait AL rods but they can't be all that thick if you take some hard hits i geuss it all depends on how stiff the stock links are, if they're a soft plastic i'd leave them unless they were too stoft and either poped or over bent, but imo i think they'll be more brittle than soft and that could lead to some major breakages idk i'd like to just see how they run i'm still a tad skepitcal

comes to 101$ with out shipping....man outdoing a friend is expensive lol but the plastic is stiff but i can already see a bit of change in to rear toe setting but something about revo's make me go into 50 foot long cartwheels lol and yet truck still works fine lol but still on the fence bout the center diff ya it would help get to speed but i still wanna wheelie and i think that it would brake more parts by the shock when the front wheels come down spinging faster then the rears but with out the center diff the order would be 79$

Bar, you need to Velcro a piece of rug to the top of the Revo and train the cat to ride it, then you can get like a half-million hits on youtube.
