welcome to the machine or madness or whatever it is that attracts us masochists to this crawler

there is a lot of information an ideas all over this section. just about everything has been tried
and some of the guys have been good enough to not only post lots of pictures but even
give us the part numbers of what they found and tried.

don't be shy in asking questions or pms

oh, and enjoy ......

Order your metal gear servo [steering box] now. The front will break/burn/chop soon.

Ahh memories of when I first got mine. It's now sitting on a custom chassis, links and cut tires / foams.

My rear servo was the first to go oddly Enough.

Enjoy it's a great truck to get into the hobby

@Cabron Thank you! I'm still reading through this section, slow & steady.

An inexpensive metal gear servo & steel gear sets for both axles along with drive pins are on the way now. Will change as & when the stock ones break. So far it's working ok with limited usage.

remove the foams from the tires.
this will give you a bit better ride until you decide if and when to get better tires.
some guys did some clever cutting of treads. besides looking better they also got better grip.

think about wheels wideners, about 1/2" on each side, it will give you a wider wheelbase
and fewer rollovers. or wheels with more offset will do the same thing. will help to keep
the tires from rubbing on the links and motor wires.

a servo's output power will depend on the voltage you are supplying it. look at the specs.
I don't have the specs on me for the receiver in the rs-10, but a BEC can be used to provide
more voltage to either the receiver or just the servo. there are a lot of entries on becs and
how to wire them up but it is a bit confusing at first. don't be afraid to ask. there are
several ways to do this. (just food for thought it is not something that just has to be done asap)

most important thing is to enjoy the hobby and learn a few things as well as meet epeople.
