Videos look good! I have been having a blast with mine! Great crawler for people to get an addiction to the hobby.

Jlane, that's it in a nut shell great little budget friendly beginners crawler that has possibilities, to become even more, with very little spent. my son has broke a steering link and a steering knuckle, both of which are super cheap and easy to repair, wish redcat or after market would make aluminum steering knuckles since they do break fairly easy, links do break but it takes quite a bit and links are easy to fab up. huge for this little crawler, going to get a head mount for my cell phone to make vids easier and I will be able to drive better in technical stuff with both hands, also as weather warms up ill be making more vids they are kinda fun.

As Jlane said its a great little budget friendly starter rig but, the real fun comes I think from building one from the ground up. Once things really start to break down or wear out ill probably get some beefier axles that can take 540 or 550 motors and really start to build something again, ill do 4 ws and rear dig possibly both front and rear digs. As for now for what is in the rig I couldn't be happier with it and my son loves his box stock one as well. as far as speed, and water proofing crawlerjunkie, there are tonnes of you tube videos out there show both the speed and these things being driven in water, I would guess they are water resistant but not water proof. Still with all that being said totally worth the money and high fun factor.

this is from a while back but how well did you like the stock tires compared to them with the center lugs cut out?

axben, stock tires are ok at best if you cut and shut the wheel it will help with the outer diameter, ie makes the tire taller more ground clearance and more side wall lug cutting the center lug will help with tire bite, for max results on a budget take the tire and soak it in WD40, it will help soften the tire for max grip, if you have access to a wire wheel, lightly knock off the sheen on the tire and soak in WD40, this will soften the tire even more and provide the max tire bite for stock, if you by aftermarket I recommend the Hyrax 2.2 with preadator compound they have the best grip imo. hope this helps.
