Typhon V5 BLX 6s – “MD Terps Stretched Typhon”

My 1st street rig. Ended up stretching it after 3 months of ownership (and wrecking it-lol). FEAR THE TURTLE!

General RC Information

I purchased this off of Craig's List in July 2022. Seller only ran it twice. Came in the box, extra set of Hoons and a battery. Looked brand new and was a great deal. That summer I did a lot of upgrades to it and mainly used it as my 1st Street rig. In October I smacked it into the front tire of my neighbor's car. I then decided it was time to stretch it, add additional upgrades, added headlights/taillights and chassis lights. It runs so smoothly and is def one of my go-to street rigs.

Photos show the 1st three months, after the stretch and now.
