So started the research and breakdown. Of the maximum mt I received the other day.. its funny and disappointing. With how people treat and maintain their RCs. I've found parts off other models which is fine..But these don't even come close. least use parts that are the same or close. There was 4 different models made of this model.. and sheetrock screws used. To put parts on. Also super glue and a bunch of other broken πŸ’©. So the breakdowns completed and a bunch of parts ordered..like mentioned is first thread not many parts out there.. So I just ordered everything I could. So would have extra incase of a crash or breakage.πŸ˜πŸ‘πŸ‘ so here it is. In pieces.. and filthy as πŸ’©... and haven a hell of time getting the drive cups off drive gear.. so I can take the diff out of tranns and let plastics sit in some cleaner..spray the tranns.. and find some other stuff like a screw set.. these are so rusted it's bad....
