I agree. The stock ripsaws feel like crap compared to these.

Thanks guys! My Holmes Hobbies 13t motor and esc will be here today. I'm super excited. Now I have to finish all my panels and get it back together. This rig is certainly a blast to drive. The pinion set screw decided to back out yesterday lol. My new Rockbeasts are mounted and ready to go.

They are wide! About the same height mounted as the ripsaws (with the Pitbull DP dual stage foams). More MTHead rings on the way for this setup.

Hehe I haven't ran it as much as I would like so far. Went for a short run last nite with my 2s lipo and it was a blast. I have to get the HH setup (with 3s lipos) in and a few other little touches done. Ordered some VP diff covers, VP rear lockouts and some links today. I have to decide if I want to run the rockbeasts on my plastic wheels or aluminums. I worked out a trade with another member so I should have some Mayhem wheels soon.
