If you run yours a lot like mine, get a rebuildable motor or brushless as you willl go through a motor in about 3 months if you ran mine as often as I did. Deffinetly watch out for the stock shocks, they tend to leak easily but my new threaded aluminum ones look great so I can't wat to give them a run for their money! Make sure your spur pinion mesh are very good, cause this will make your gears last A LOOOOONG time. I ran about 3 motors before I had to replace mine and I put some rc18-t steal ones in. I'll ahve to get pics up with the new shocks.

I had that idea put is it going to hold and will it lift the servo because if it does it will become a problem.

It's a bit extreme but you could superglue some small nuts to the bottom of the servo then make small holes for them to fit in (in the chassis). Then use a washer (and the bolt...) to secure it to the chassis. But I'd try the servo tape before any radical surgery.

It should, but servo tape is designed for this application, hence the name.

Don't want to permanent glue it and when it breaks I can't fix it...I was thinking hot glue but I will try the 3m double sided foam tape and if taht doesn't work glue here i come!

Also, you need zip ties!

lol I know I need to ziptie everything, I sprayed everything down nicely with wd40 before I went out in teh snow. This thing is always a blast to drive, the wires on that battery pack are just too darn big.
