Ok so i started off nitro, went through a few vehicles and then switched to electric and LOVED it. I have had more electrics than i can remember and its been great. Gobs of torque, no cleanup, less maintenance, etc. Well i got a tmaxx 3.3 in a trade, spent a few hours cleaning and working on it and then took it for a test drive. I only drove it for a few minutes but i am going back to nitro. I am keeping the e-savage but thats it. The skin between my pointer and middle finger is a little sore from the pullstart and i have a knick on my knuckle from hitting the cooling head. The sound of hearing a motor running was awesome.

More to come later but i am going back to nitro!!
(rebuilding the savage X i got from hates2lose or however you spell it)

so what u got brushless forsale lol

i have gotten rid of everything except for the e-savage. I have TON of cash invested in it and it went from 1/10th to 1/8th scale.
Here are a few pics. No way i could sell it unless the price was right. or i was getting some super cool stuff in a trade.

Ton of GCM stuff on it(exarms, cvd's, twin diffs, skid plates, bump steer, friction clutch). JR 8711, Novak HV 6.5, big joes on axial beadlocks, 2S 6000 polyquest lipo's, rc monster battery trays, etc etc etc
