Yep I like the looks of that combo! But Im going to do the combo 3a and they are out of stock for now. Same setup but the 25a option. Will order 2 at the same time so gotta wait for some $ and my other car to come in.  Thanks for the help though!!

Incase any of you are wonering, or own one?? The RC18T wheels/Dog bones/RPM controll arms and turnbuckle sets are all a direct swap for upgrade parts etc!!

Just an update! Been bashing these things since xmas. Probably 20 pack through them now. Definatly upgrade the wheels if your going to bash!! Jump etc. I put rc18t wheels on the stock rubber and there great. The boy and I have been doing alot of cartwheeling and jumping lately! So the damage list is--- Two bent shock shafts and 4 Leaking stock shocks on 2 cars. No biggie really!!
Still waiting for my aftermarket shocks to come in. Got some small gravel in between the pinion gear and mangles one tooth a bit. Nothing a pick and file didnt fix.

Really though for the $125 I paid for these ea. RTR they are very durable and a good starter vehicle.!!

Now just saving for my Slash 4x4 and first 1/10 vehicle in 10years! LOL.
